Iris Coffin, secretary of the Humane Society of Perry, issued the following statement Monday afternoon:
The Humane Society of Perry is closing. We will no longer take cats at the Cattery. Dogs and cats will both be taken care of by the City. We will also no longer take donations. Our sincere thanks to those who have supported us in the past. Please direct any further issues to the Perry City Clerk at 515-465-2481.
A privately owned animal shelter is planned near Perry, according to a sign recently erected east of the Perry Water Pollution Control Facility along the south side of Iowa Highway 141.
