HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Pine Belt organization with a passion for helping animals showed its continued support Friday, by presenting the Southern Pines Animal Shelter with a grant.

The Greater Pine Belt Community Foundation presented animal shelter board members with a $3,300 check to help with daily operating expenses.

 The grant money, comes from an annual endowment fund established back in 2003, as a part of local business leader Dr. Richard Vreeland's estate.

Theresa Erickson, Executive Director of the Pine Belt Community Foundation said, "several years ago Richard Vreeland, who loved animals decided to set up an endowment for the Southern Pines Animal Shelter and in that endowment is a gift that lives on forever." 

Director of the shelter, Gayle Foreman said,  "it's so important for us, these types of donations are used for everything from food for the animals, to medical care, to the staff who take care of them. Without the community foundation and donations of this type, we wouldn't be able to do what we do."
