OCONTO – The Oconto Area Humane Society says it’s running out of money and it may have to close its doors.

It’s the only shelter in the Oconto area.

The impact could go beyond just the animals. The shelter is home to more than 70 cats and dogs.

“We have had animals that have only been here a day or two and someone just happens to see that perfect pet. We have animals that have called this place a home for over a year,” said Kathy Campshure, Oconto Area Humane Society board president.

But time is running out and the furry felines along with man’s best friend may have to find another place to live.

“On a monthly basis we’re in the red. We are the place for all of the residents in Oconto County to go to and if we were to close our doors our fear is that without a place to go these animals are going to end up abandoned,” said Jessica Beaumia, Oconto Area Humane Society’s director.

Beaumia says most of the time the shelter is spending more than it’s bringing in.
