SHEBOYGAN – The all-new, state-of-the-artwork Humane Modern society of Sheboygan County Carol Hollfelder Animal Shelter will open up to the community Friday right after a ribbon-reducing previously this week.

The HSSC is the county’s only open admissions, no-eliminate animal shelter, and the nonprofit is not supported by any nearby or state tax dollars.
To fund the new facility, the HSSC completed a $4 million cash campaign, its initially since 1964. In 2020, Bea and Tom Hollfelder donated $1 million on behalf of their daughter, Carol Hollfelder, and the facility was named in her honor.

The HSSC will be open noon-6 p.m. this Friday and its new operating several hours will be noon-6 p.m. Wednesdays-Fridays and noon-4 p.m. Saturdays-Sundays with the shelter shut on Mondays, Tuesdays and main holiday seasons.
