Stone County animal shelter receives check for shelter animals

The Stone County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals received a $2,500 check today from the Stone County Economic Development Partnership.

The money will be used to care for the animals, when it comes to getting spayed or neutered, vet bills, and fuel transports to help pets get adopted.

The shelter has roughly 100 pets that are looking for a home. You can head to their Facebook for pictures and more details on the pets available. Stone County SPCA President Katie Stonnington said, “It is very nice to be recognized for your work. Very appreciated and encouraging, so it means a lot and the bills need to be paid, a typical pharmaceutical bill for one month is about $1,500. So, things are expensive, so the money has to come from somewhere or we shut down because you can’t run it without funds.”
