Animal Shelter Gets $5,000 Donation

KSAL StaffJune 23, 2017

An organization that is dedicated to helping the animals at the Salina Animal Shelter has received a boost to help in its efforts. The Friends of the Salina Animal Shelter has received a $5,000 donation from a Salina business.  Auto dealer Long McArthur presented a check to the organization on Friday.

Long McArthur General Sales Manager Kevin Sander, a shelter volunteer himself, delivered a $5,000 check to the shelter’s Animal Services Manager Vanessa Cowie and Friends of the Salina Animal Shelter volunteer and board member Vicki Kerbs. Sander told KSAL News that the money was raised during the month of May. For every new vehicle sold the business donated $100.

The Friends of the Salina Animal Shelter is a non-profit volunteer organization that is dedicated to helping the animals at the Salina Animal Shelter. These volunteers hope to brighten the lives of the many pets cared for at the shelter daily. Volunteers are an integral part of getting the animals socialized, keeping them exercised, and getting them exposure to the public all with the hopes of finding all the shelter animals new furr-ever homes and furr-ever families. Kerbs told KSAL News that the donation will be used to help its day-to-day activities with shelter animals, most notably for medical expenses.

Cowie said that business partnerships like these are vital to what the shelter does.

 

The Salina Animal Shelter is a nonprofit organization, and a division of Salina’s Parks and Recreation Department. The organization provides animal control, adoption services and wildlife management.  The shelter is a no-kill shelter, meaning that over 90 percent of the animals it receives are saved.
