UPDATE: Central Missouri Humane Society to extend hours of operation

Sunday, March 14, 2010 | 12:01 a.m. CST

COLUMBIA — The Central Missouri Humane Society has pushed back the date that it will begin longer hours.

It will be open six days a week starting April 5, said society Executive Director Alan Allert at a meeting Tuesday night. The board had originally planned to begin the new hours on March 16.

Starting April 5, the new hours are:

  • Monday and Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday noon to 5 p.m.
  • Wednesday, noon to 9 p.m.

Currently, the society is closed Tuesday and Wednesday, although they still take in pets then. Allert said that’s a problem because the society can’t adopt out any animals those days.
