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.
Kevin Sander from Long McArthur told KSAL News that the money was raised from several sources including donations from the public and the business, and a portion of ticket sales from Long McArthur’s Live from the Lot, with Alpha Media radio station Y93.7 concert.
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.
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.
According to the organization, the donation will be used to help its day-to-day activities with shelter animals.
