YORK-Construction has begun on the upgrade and expansion of the Heritage Humane Society animal shelter on Waller Mill Road.

The expansion project will add 2,550 square feet to the front of the animal adoption facility. In addition, the project includes a new multi-use room for training, education, meetings, birthday parties, and other events; 16 new parking spaces; two new outdoor play yards; and space for the Heritage Humane Society’s new community outreach program, Kibble Kitchen. The Kibble Kitchen helps provide pet food and supplies to families in need.


Other aspects of the project include a new office for staff members; a new breakroom; two pet rooms in the lobby for pets with special needs; a new dog activity room and dog viewing room; a lobby renovation with a more open design; and new restrooms.


Heritage Humane Society has raised $1.5 million for its expansion so far, with an additional $300,000 left to be raised. Heritage Humane Society will remain open during the project, which is anticipated to be completed by the fall of 2021.
