About a month ago KX was the first to report about the possibility of the Souris Valley Animal Shelter shutting down.
A month ago they noticed they weren’t getting enough donations and grants for their capital campaign, and to top it off two out of three of their furnaces broke down, meaning funds had to be directed that way.
They say since then donations and grants are coming.
With the continued help from the community they will break ground on a new building in April.
“We obviously had a furnace break and then we ended having to replace two of our furnaces that got completely funded through Facebook and so we’re really grateful for our community partners for helping us with that,” said Shelbi Waters, the director of development for the shelter.
Waters says they’ve raised close to 65,000 dollars in a month.
