Angels of Assisi has plans to relocate to a lost at the corner of Franlkin Street and Elm Avenue. The lot was donated to the organization nearly two years ago.
The group hopes to build a facility there that will better accommodate its needs, and have more parking for visitors.
“What we’re really trying to do is get a building where we don’t have to work as hard and we can put more effort into the animals. So the folks that have supported us throughout the years, this one is kind of for them and we’re working really hard to get that done,” says Lisa O’Neill, executive director of Angels of Assisi.
The couple who donated the lot to Angels of Assisi were looking for a way to honor their uncle’s memory with the donation, according to O’Neill.
