Local business Masterson Construction and architect Terry Thornton have been chosen by the Humane Society officials to build the new Benton-Franklin Humane Society’s new no-kill animal shelter. Land was recently purchased by BFHS from the Port of Kennewick on Seventh Ave near Western Equipment sales. There are currently buildings already in place on the land all but one of the buildings will be removed, the one remaining building will most likely be used as a spay and neuter facility. BFHS has been raising $2 million for a while now which would cover the costs of the land, construction, and the costs of a larger facility; they have raised nearly $1.5 million so far. The new shelter will be nearly 9,000 sq. feet and will be able to house about 120 pets. Sometime in mid-April there will be a ground breaking; construction is expected to begin sometime late spring early summer.
