Palm City, Fla. — Over the past 55 years, the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast (HSTC) has prepared thousands of animals of different breeds and temperaments for adoption. Some come in healthy while others arrive injured or present with symptoms that require treatment. That’s why the HSTC’s next chapter is such a necessary, major advance — the building of a brand new isolation ward and the renovation of a portion of its Palm City shelter for a cutting-edge surgical suite. Last week, construction began under the management of Kirchman Construction. Local architects Kelly and Kelly developed the project’s plans. “There are no time constraints on hope,” said HSTC President & CEO Frank Valente. “Our foster program can only handle so many sick animals. The next logical step in the growth of our organization is to create a dedicated isolation ward to treat sick animals and a state-of-the-art surgical suite for high volume spaying and neutering.”...
