HANNIBAL | The Board of Directors and staff at the Northeast Missouri Humane Society will be holding a groundbreaking ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 15, at the new building location on Veterans Road in Hannibal.

The NEMOHS has been in dire need of a new building to accommodate the lost and homeless animals of Hannibal and Northeast Missouri for several years. NEMOHS President Elise Blue said “that dream is finally coming true.” The new location will be across the street from the Missouri State Highway Patrol's driver examination station.

The public is invited to attend the ceremony. NEMOHS representatives request everyone wear masks and practice social distancing.
