The Superior Animal Shelter at 2225 Hill Ave. is under new management as of Thursday. The Superior City Council approved a contract with the Humane Society of Douglas County, Inc. on April 2. The Humane Society of Douglas County will operate the Hill Avenue facility as a stray hold and reclaim center for the City of Superior. Strays that are not reclaimed will be transported to the Humane Society's South Range adoption center after their seven day hold period has ended as required by Wisconsin state statute. The Hill Avenue site will be open from 7-10 a.m. and 3-6 p.m. seven days a week for Superior residents to claim their lost pets and for the public to bring in stray animals only. Surrendered pets will be accepted at the South Range adoption center.

Construction of the new shelter to serve all of Douglas County is scheduled to begin in late summer/early fall and will be located at Bear Creek Park at the intersection of Highway 2 and Moccasin Mike Road.
