TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - A ribbon cutting was held Tuesday morning for the grand opening of the new Tupelo-Lee County Humane Society facility on Cliff Gookin Boulevard in Tupelo.

It was a packed house. Those attending the event were able to see the new facility's design, tour the building and learn more about shelter operations and strategic initiatives. 

"It's been a project of love for the last decade," TLCHS President Jay Quimby said. "It's taken 10 years to raise the funds and build the new shelter; so many donations and hard work by so many people." 

Donor names are featured on everything from the walls and benches to cat condos and dog kennels.
