WASHOUGAL — In January 2021, Micki Simeone, executive director of the West Columbia Gorge Humane Society, was playing with cats in the old cat shelter when she noticed paint bubbling on the walls.

After calling a contractor, the staff discovered that the entire ceiling was caving in.

The old building, a manufactured home, was sold and moved, replaced with a new building in June 2022 that used to be a portable classroom.
