Email News Alerts

Here's something to sink your teeth into: The Becker County Humane Society has decided on a different location for its 50-bed animal shelter.


If the county board throws it a bone and supports its proposal, the Humane Society will build its 4,000-square-foot shelter on a 7 acre, pie-shaped chunk of leased land on Highway 59 North, just south of Cozy Cove Road.

The building will be able to house 25 dogs and 25 cats.
