More space means more help for cats and dogs that are staying at the Capital Area Humane Society. Workers continue to work to build up the inner walls of a $2.1 million expansion at the Capital Area Humane Society.

The Lansing State Journal reports, the expansion will give the shelter more animal space.  That area will increase the capacity of the shelter by allowing space for new and sick animals and ones needing to be quarantined.

The current main housing area for animals will be exclusively for animal adoption after the expansion is complete. The addition will also include an outdoor area for cats and a renovated lobby
