Warwick Humane Society receives $50K for finishing touches at new facility
The Warwick Valley Humane Society is getting some much-needed help to put the finishing touches on their new state-of-the-art facility.
Sen. James Skoufis announced Tuesday that he secured $50,000 in state funding to help the humane society pay for new fencing, epoxy kennel flooring, and additional kennel upgrades at the location on Public Works Road.
“In times of crisis, our furry friends need a safe place to land,” said Skoufis. “The Warwick Valley Humane Society has done a phenomenal job responding to the needs of Orange County’s animals and pet owners, even while experiencing a years-long transition to this beautiful new facility. This funding will help our most vulnerable companions find a safe and supportive stopover as they search for their forever homes.”
The announcement coincides with “Adopt a Less-Adoptable Pet Week,” which is celebrated nationally and runs Sept. 18 - 24.
