A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for noon Saturday to celebrate the completion of the yearlong renovation and expansion project of the Door County Humane Society shelter.

The society is hosting an open house that begins with the ribbon cutting and continues to 4 p.m. at the shelter, 3475 County PD (Park Drive) in the town of Nasewaupee.

The expanded facility has a separate, spacious animal intake area; six catteries where cats with similar temperaments may play and socialize freely; an enhanced medical suite to accommodate visiting veterinarians; more efficient laundry equipment; and an organized work flow for the daily cleaning and feeding operations.

An educational space can be used for classes, seminars, and in-service training. Volunteers, crucial to the adoption and care responsibilities, have a designated area to gather and talk.

Construction funds for the renovation/expansion were raised from private sources. Of the total $1.3 million cost, two-thirds has been raised already, and the capital campaign continues.
