Cache Humane Society, a local nonprofit once contracted by Logan to impound stray animals, now says the city isn't fulfilling its responsibilities.

Mayor Holly Daines described Logan’s relationship with Cache Humane as “tumultuous” and said the shelter was difficult to work with. Stacey Frisk, executive director of CHS, disagreed, stating that the relationship was like any other partnership.

 

CHS was contracted by the City of Logan to provide shelter for stray and lost animals for many years. In May 2018, Logan’s contract expired, leaving them in a difficult spot. In 2016, CHS switched to a no-kill shelter and needed to increase fees to pay for the cost. Additionally, CHS took issue with the withdrawal of Logan’s support for a trap neuter and return strategy for feral cats and stated that lowering fees, as the city asked, would lower the quality of care for animals.
