Shelter gets donation from will

January 13, 2003

TIFT CO. - The Tifton-Tift County Animal Shelter is getting some much needed help from someone directors will never get a chance to meet. They were left ten thousand dollars in a will. The only thing they know about the donor is the person wanted the shelter to spend the money on either medical treatment for strays, or getting them spayed or neutered.

Director Sharon Mills said, "That's a very large concern here in Tifton as well as other counties, this year alone we took in 5,000 animals, can't find homes for all of them, but if we could afford to get them spayed we could keep them a little longer."

Shelter volunteers are asking the family of the donor to get in touch with them, so they can say "thank you." Tifton's current shelter opened in 2001, after the state shut the old building down the year before for deplorable living conditions.
