READING, Pa. - Big changes are in store for Humane Pennsylvania's shelter in Reading.

The Humane Society of Berks County said its shelter on North 11th Street has been given the go-ahead to undergo a complete renovation.

The building's new layout is still being finalized, but officials said the decades-old building will be made over to be much more modern and easier to maintain. Also, an addition will aim to help pet owners.

"We are going to be adding a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic specifically designed to provide high-volume, low-cost services to people in the community who need it," said Damon March, Humane Pennsylvania's chief operating officer.

The Humane Society said the changes will eventually cut down on the number of homeless animals in the community.

The timeline for the project is still being finalized.
