Construction to begin on Truckee animal shelter


After years of preparing, planning, designing and fundraising, the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe, in partnership with the Truckee, will break ground on the animal shelter June 4.

If all goes as planned, the shelter is expected to open in late 2013.

HSTT has partnered with Truckee to share the cost of construction and operation of a new shelter. Approximately 1.5 acres of the town’s new corporation yard have been secured at no cost to HSTT. Bids are due by April 26 at 2pm.

The building will include an education and training center, allowing HSTT to expand its humane education, dog training and pet assisted therapy programs.
