The Drumheller and District Humane Society's animal shelter is undergoing a makeover.
 
"We had ordered a second hand C-can for storage and we moved out a lot of what we could from inside to outside," outlined Humane Society president Kelcy Travis. "Then we tore down some walls inside the facility so that we can make room for more kennels."
 
"They'll each have their own condo (where) the litter area is separated from the living area with a hole," she explained. "We're hoping that it will be easier to keep clean because the chain link kennels that we have right now, they're not the easiest to keep clean."
 
The Drumheller animal shelter has been overrun with cats in recent weeks and Travis says they had to make more room.
 
"We've purchased new air purifiers for the centre and we're building a patio for cats outside. We're really hoping that within the next year we can have one or two dog runs built, if it's possible to do where we currently are.
 
The Humane Society's animal shelter is located in Bay D, 1121-South Railway Avenue across from Ralston's.
