Shelter stimulus

Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes gets federal and provincial funding for new facility.

The local agency will receive $400,000 from both the federal and Ontario governments towards the building of new facilities, president Rob Mabe announced Monday at the shelter on McLaughlin Rd. in Lindsay.

“This will help us move forward,” he said.

While he is proud of the job the organization does, the reality is the operation needs more space,” Mabe said.

“We need more room to facilitate the number of animals we have. We have cats hanging from the rafters.”

During the announcement, Mabe was flanked by Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MP Barry Devolin and MPP Rick Johnson. He commended them for “putting politics aside to get this done.”
