"...Typically we do residential housing, but this is a great chance to do something more commercial with their skills, and like Ellen said, it's for a good cause."
The building will be located on a two-and-a-half-acre plot off Old U.S. Route 66, and when completed, should be about 3,000 square feet.
Ellen Burbage, president of the HSLC board of directors, called the move a "win-win" decision, saying while students will gain hands-on experience in the building trades program, the HSLC will finally have a shelter for its animals.
"We just can't begin to tell you how excited we are about this project," Burbage told the LCHS board.
Burbage said the HSLC will continue to use foster homes, which members have previously stated are dwindling in numbers.
"This just gives us the opportunity to take in more animals and adopt them in Logan County," Burbage said.
Burbage said the HSLC has the funds in place, which LTEC students will use to construct the building. The building will be furnished by the HSLC.
"We're ready to roll, and this is just a real opportunity for us to be able to do it and have some operating money left over," Burbage said.

Ellen Burbage who serves as president for the HSLC says the grassroots effort started about four years ago.
"We are reaping the benefit that so many people helped us with. It's really been a community effort," said Burbage.
 The group's purpose is to provide ethical treatment of stray, homeless, abused and unwanted animals in Logan County.
The group provides a network of people who help animals by offering up their homes as foster homes.
"We had 50 adoptions last year that came from our foster home," said Burbage.
Many people looking for the companionship of an animal can visit the group's website or also find them on under the Logan County link.
Burbage said major funding for the project came through a sizeable donation made by two families in the community.
"We were blessed with a $200,000 gift we received from Ethel D. Hoelscher as well as the donation of the property gifted by the Gene Burwell family," said Burbage.
Burbage said there are 120 members involved with the Humane Society of Logan County and is proud of all of the hard work that's been done.
"I have about 50 to 75 people who provide items for our bake sale and I can't forget those people who have been so generous with their time and space that they've provided," said Burbage.
She is referencing The Blue Dog restaurant that currently provides the HSLC a storefront location on Sangamon Street in Lincoln.
Burbage says the group would not have gotten to this place without the help of past HSLC leaders.
 "I want to recognize Kay Moos, Jerry Bauersachs and Larry Pech because they played an integral part in this," said Burbage.
We don't belong to a national group, and we are in charge of the donations that are received," said Burbage.
