Susie Schieve: Humane Society's 'Cat Barn' nearly complete

Excitement is brewing around the Madison County Humane Society shelter.

After many months of planning and building, our “Cat Barn” is nearing completion. With a generous donation from the estate of Carole Pierce, we have been able to realize a dream. An animal lover, Carole wanted her gift to be used for wishes and needs of the shelter.

We are thrilled with this opportunity to have such a structure.

Della and Ed Shriver, who organize the motorcycle ride for us in the spring, offered to help with the finishing work by donating their time and lumber. Walmart brought 20 employees to paint for two days. They were able to complete the painting of the inside and outside of the building and even purchased more paint when the buckets ran dry. Walmart also donated fabulous commercial grade flooring for the barn along with a grant which will enable us to finish the project. We are grateful for these gifts.

We plan a dedication to Carole Pierce upon completion with a plaque on the barn and a celebration open house.

The fourth annual Fur Ball Dinner-Dance will be hosted by the Madison County Humane Society on Oct. 4, at the Anderson Country Club. The evening features Rick Vale and the Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra. A live and silent auction are a feature of the evening, which this year will include — but not be limited to — a signed print by Jim Davis of "Garfield" fame, an Anna Maria Island, Fla. condo and a fabulous piece of jewelry by a Dallas designer.

Invitations will go out this week. If interested in attending please call (765) 215-8235. All proceeds for the evening go for the care of the animals at the shelter.

We want to thank our two corporate sponsors for this event: Community Hospital Foundation and Robert Loose Funeral Home / Loyal and True Animal Services.
