The New Year is a big one for the local humane society.

The organization has changed its name from the Becker County Humane Society to the Humane Society of the Lakes, elected a new president to the board, Beth Pridday, and is planning to open the doors of the newly constructed shelter within weeks.


The humane society began fund-raising three years ago with a vision of a shelter. In June 2006, the group broke ground on Highway 59 North.
