Exactly to the day from breaking ground two years ago, today the Watauga Humane Society received its Certificate of Occupancy for its move into the new 17,000 sq.ft. Irma Baker Lyons Adoption and Education Center, 312 Paws Way, Boone, NC. Volunteers and staff are working diligently
to pack up and move. Our phone number, 828.264.7865, and fax number, 828.264.7996, will stay the same.
Please note: the Watauga Humane Society will be closed Monday- Thursday, September 26-29, 2011. We will be open at the new Adoption and Education Center at 12:30pm-6:00pm on Friday, September 30, 2011. We do not have a definite date for our Grand Opening event but will announce the date once our animals are settled.
Spay/Neuter will take place at the old location, 200 Casey Lane, on September 29, as originally scheduled. Beginning October 6th, Spay/Neuter will take place at the new Adoption and Education Center.
During the days we will be closed, Monday -Thursday, September 26-29, anyone who has a stray or other dog or cat to be turned in should contact Watauga County Animal Care and Control, 828.262.1672.
We hope the Watauga County residents, friends and family will enjoy the new Irma Baker Lyons Adoption and Education Center. Once we are settled, we will begin scheduling events in our large multi-purpose room.
Thank you to all of the people who have donated time and money to help us get the new Adoption and Education Center built, finished and ready for occupancy.
