We were estabished in June 1972 by Jim Kobza when a little boy ran
across the street chasing a dog and was hit by a car.  It was decided to
start a local Humane Society to try to prevent such tragedies.The Humane Society operated out of homes and various offices until 1980.We moved into our current location, 2640 Marquette Avenue, in the summer
of 1980.Everett and Ursula Miller were operating the Animal Rescue and took over
the Humane Society in 1983 becoming the Humane Society and Animal
