Hinsdale Humane Society shines on 60th anniversary
HINSDALE – A single light dangled from the wooden ceiling of an unheated shack and the only hot water provided was from the drool of the dogs it was intended to house.
“We started with six women and a little wooden shed,” said Humane Educator Kym Iffert of the Hinsdale Humane Society. “There were all these stray cats and dogs running around and they identified a need for trying to create happy, healthy animals.”
That was was the site of the Hinsdale Humane Society in 1953, when it was considered an unkempt dog pound. But because of the efforts of those Hinsdale residents, the humane society has become a DuPage County gem. Back then, the goals of the women were to educate the public and to provide safe and sanitary facilities.
