BACKGROUND

Background

The Guilford County Animal Shelter was listed as an anonymous donor’s IRA beneficiary, with the inheritance payout in the amount of $14,696.89. Animal Services plans on using the additional funds for shelter enrichment programs that help reduce the stress and boredom of kennel life. All shelter animals benefit from enrichment programs, but they can be especially valuable for long-term residents who tend to deteriorate quickly in kennels.

The Guilford County Animal Shelter received an additional, walk-in donation from the Newby Family of $10,000. Animal Services plans on using these additional funds for the same purpose as above.
