Groundbreaking held for new Humane Society building

FRANKFORT, Ky (WTVQ) – A special groundbreaking ceremony was held today for the upcoming construction of the Franklin County Humane Society’s new building.

The Humane Society’s current building is over 50 years old and on it’s last legs due to years of wear and tear and flood damage. Construction is due to begin in the next two weeks with a completion date estimated to be 12-14 months.

Sam Marcus, Franklin County Humane Society Board President, spoke about the importance of taking care of the animals in his community.

“How a community takes care of it’s animals says a lot about the community. And, um, we have been taking remarkably good care of our animals. But as I said earlier, we’ve been doing it with one hand tied behind our back. And so now is the time to show Frankfort, and really the state, what can be done in terms of animal welfare,” Marcus said.

To fund-raise for construction of the new building the Humane Society is raffling off flights of extremely rare bourbon. To learn more visit
