Manhattan Animal Shelter Has New Owners

On December 24th Prairie Paws Animal Shelter, Inc. took ownership of the Animal Shelter previously known as T. Russell Reitz Animal Shelter.

The Shelter’s hours of operation and phone number will remain the same. The previous “T. Russell Reitz Animal Shelter” Facebook page will transition to the City of Manhattan Animal Control page as Prairie Paws builds its Facebook Page for the area.
