The Lawrence Humane Society has launched a public campaign to fund the construction of a multimillion-dollar animal shelter.
The new shelter will be funded in partnership with the city, and Humane Society Executive Director Kate Meghji said the public phase of the campaign, which launched Friday, comes on the heels of a year of securing grants and larger donations.
“Now that we’re in the public phase, we’re asking everybody in the community who cares about the pets in our community and wants us to continue doing the work that we do, and do it even better, to make a donation to help us build this facility,” Meghji said.
