Donations Helping Young Co. Animal Shelter Remain Open a Few More Months

Humane Society of Young County officials say they have enough donations to keep the shelter open for about three months.
Humane Society of Young County officials say they have enough donations to keep the shelter open for about three months.
Kim Baxter, the shelter's executive director, says it takes about $17,000 each month to run the shelter but a severe drop in donations and a  steep increase in animal intakes nearly caused the shelter to shut down earlier this month.
However, Baxter says money has poured in from area organizations, businesses- even kids donating their allowance.
Baxter expects to generate even more money at a fundraiser on August 17th at Tractor Supply in Graham.
