MONROE - Despite experiencing a challenging year, the Green County Humane Society is reporting some positive adoption and financial trends from 2011.The nonprofit organization presented its 2011 reports at its annual meeting Thursday, May 3.The biggest challenge of the year was an influx of 63 dogs, mostly Great Danes, stemming from a seizure performed by the Green County Sheriff's Department at a home near Albany in May. The humane society took in the dogs, per a contractual agreement with the county to care for any law enforcement seizures.The dogs were adopted out to homes as far away as Pennsylvania.Looking forward, the humane society is planning to begin construction yet this spring on a new shelter facility on an 8-acre property at the Pleasant View Complex on Wisconsin 81 just north of Monroe.The humane society pulled in about $301,000 in 2011 for the new facility. The building fund balance for the new shelter stands at $844,229 (as of April 30), according to GCHS spokesperson Rachel Schardt.
