MOUNT VERNON — The Humane Society of Knox County opened its doors for an open house Saturday to display renovations made during the recent reorganization of the facility. Crowded, cramped spaces have been opened up, and resurfacing of walls, floors and ceilings have greatly improved the ability to keep the shelter clean and disease-free, said the newly appointed president of the operation, Curtis Bennett.

“The advancements we’ve made are sure going to help our population,” he said.
The animal surgery room was moved from the basement to the main floor of the shelter, a move which will help patrons who have to carry their animals into the building. A door was put through one of the surgery’s walls to connect it directly to the recovery room so that the two rooms can be kept sterile and isolated from the rest of the facility.
