HHHS was once housed in a 13 thousand square foot facility but now enjoys almost 52,000 square feet.

Executive Director Bill Acree says their intake of animals increased with the space but so did their adoptions.

He credits their central location for the positive push to adopt.

They have also seen a significant increase in the number of volunteers.

Before the move, they had about a dozen regular volunteers.

Now, people giving of their own time numbers near 100.

Acree says the shelter currently has between 300 to 400 animals including two ferrets and a rabbit.
