The Watauga Humane Society is raising money to replace its Cat Condos at its Adoption Center in Boone.

The Humane Society stated that the condos are reaching the end of their useful life, having been used by over 1,500 cats and kittens in the past year and a half.

The estimated cost to install new stainless steel condos is $60,000. The Humane Society has received a challenge grant of $20,000 toward the cost, and is now asking the public to make donations.

For more information and to make a donation, get online to, or call the Humane Society at (828) 264-7865.
