ODESSA - Today the Humane Society opened the doors to their new cat rescue shelter.
The overall building is heated to keep cats warm and ventilated to keep them cool during the summer.
In it you can see structures and toys to keep cats entertained.
Humane Society volunteer Bryan Yancey says the shelter was made possible thanks to the hard work of the Odessa Humane Society Volunteers and a local foundation.
“Today we are opening up the new cat rescue shelter. The building was funded by the Emma Barnsley Foundation out of Midland Thru Wells Fargo Bank. It helps us house up to 125 cats and kittens. Where before we could only house about 30,” said Odessa Human Society Volunteer Bryan Yancey.
The shelter did take some time to complete due to the lack of construction staff to complete it. The cat shelter went from 30 spaces to room for up to 125 cats.
