- WHO WE ARE
- WHAT WE DO
- GET INVOLVED
Jane and Shirley Wurz held lifelong commitments to the welfare of animals and were both deeply invested in our humane society. Jane's goal was for HSTC to be able to offer low-cost training at all levels to the public, from basic to utility, because she knew the joy trained dogs can bring to their owner. To make her vision a reality, Jane made a $1 million gift to build the Jane & Shirley Wurz Training Center. Learn about these incredible women and their vision here.
Completed in 2020 as the second-phase of our multi-year renovation project, this 4,500 square-foot building serves as the region's largest indoor training facility for dogs. This facility allows HSTC to offer obedience training seven days a week, expand the pet enrichment programs for shelter animals, host humane education conferences, workshops, and events, and serve as a hub for bringing the community together to save more lives.
The Wurz Training Center is even available to the community as a rental space for a variety of events, meetings, parties, and more. Learn more about the programs and services available at the Jane & Shirley Wurz Training Center throughout this page.
