SSHS still in need of donations for adoption center

The South Suburban Humane Society’s new adoption center in Homewood is still in need of donations after renovations have stalled.
 
Construction at the new facility, being remodeled from the building that once housed the Homewood Animal Hospital at 2207 183rd St., has slowed because of issues with plumbing and the roof. A new gas line also had to be added. The existing line had been tied off because the property was vacant for more than 180 days.
