New animal shelter opens in Howard
HOWARD (WLUK) -- A local animal rescue organization is celebrating its new shelter in Howard.
Haven Animal Rescue held an open house. The shelter is located on Military Avenue.
The shelter will provide housing for dogs, cats, and small animals as they search for their forever homes.
The shelter is volunteer based.
"The past two years we were operating as a foster-based rescue and we knew we that in order to grow and kind of meet the goals that we have for this organization we needed a physical building," said Leigh Ann Wagner Kroening, Haven Animal Rescue founder.
Right now, the shelter is at full capacity with more than 20 animals in need of a home.
