Construction is underway for the new Racine facility

Racine, Wisconsin – April 29, 2019 – Officials from the Wisconsin Humane Society and Gilbane Building Company recently came together to celebrate the official groundbreaking ceremony for the new Racine facility of the Wisconsin Human Society.

The new one-story building will provide animal housing and veterinary services similar to a hospital, along with educational space and outdoor play areas. The project will incorporate many high-performance systems as it operates 24/7.
