HUMBLE, TX -- The Humble Animal Shelter has come a long way since it was built in the late 1980s.

More than 20 years after it first opened its doors, the shelter will soon move into an expanded facility, transitioning into a place where residents can find their new four-legged friend.

As an animal lover and longtime employee of the city, Randy Scott has worked as the city's chief Animal Control Officer for more than three years, and has loved every minute of the experience.

The city of Humble approved funds in 2013 for the expansion of the shelter to double the capacity of the kennel area and build an area where residents looking to adopt an animal can visit with their potential new family member.

Once the facility's construction is fully completed, Scott and his volunteers hope to move into the new Humble Animal Shelter in the coming weeks.
