The only Humane Society animal shelter serving two growing counties in western Wisconsin will close later this month for lack of operating funds.
"It's been a teary few days," said Theresa Jonas, the shelter's volunteer executive director. She said the Humane Society of Pierce-St. Croix, Inc., will accept stray animals through Dec. 31. After that, the shelter, south of River Falls, will stay open only until homes are found for the remaining animals, she said.
