Hub business helping animal shelter

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Hub City business which helps customers stay cool in the summer is now warming them up to the idea of helping a local animal shelter win thousands of dollars in a national competition. Bop's Frozen Custard hosted an adoption event for the Southern Pines Animal Shelter Saturday afternoon.

Each customer that signed up to help Southern Pines in the ASPCA's $100,000 Challenge got a free scoop of frozen custard.

That challenge is a 3-month, nationwide competition to save the lives of more homeless animals.

It ends in October.
