The Livingston County Humane Society has raised just over $57,000 for the Feline Sanctuary. Combined with the $50,000 from the Great Plains/Drs. Morrill Foundation, the society has $107,000 for the sanctuary and more. Any leftover funds not used by the shelter for construction of the feline sanctuary may be used to purchase furnishings, provide for the future maintenance of the sanctuary, and for the needs of the shelter's fur friends. The next step is getting final approval from the Chillicothe City Council for the building. A committee is working to develop a firm estimate of utility and other costs. The board and the fund-raising committee are hopeful that everything will be completed by midsummer. Donations may be mailed to the Livingston County Humane Society, P.O. Box 1214, Chillicothe, MO 64601.
