MERIDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — After months of talk between city officials and the Meriden Humane Society, volunteers were informed Thursday night that group will need to vacate their current location by February.
Several volunteers reached out to News 8 via Report-It to confirm that the City Manager informed the Meriden Humane Society Thursday night that they will need to vacate the entire building, located at 311 Murdock Avenue, within 120 days. This decision puts the Humane Society in the position of trying to find spots for dozens of animals.
This news comes just weeks after the director of the Humane Society was arrested on September 7th, accused of forging a rabies certificate.
