Southern Pines Animal Shelter receives donation from Moose Lodge

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Members of the Hattiesburg Moose Lodge presented a check to Southern Pines Animal Shelter for more than $1500 Tuesday morning.

On top of the check, the lodge also chipped in with some much needed supplies to help the shelter operate. The supplies included cleaning materials, laundry detergent, bleach, and blankets.

Each year the lodge holds a fund raising barbeque to raise money for the shelter.

"Donations are absolutely vital to the shelter and we are just so grateful to have so many wonderful organizations like the Moose Lodge that are willing to step up and help out the homeless animals in our community," said Kathryn Sammons, Southern Pines Animal Shelter Assistant Manager. "We could never make it without the donations."

The money will be used for things like vaccinations and flea treatment for the animals.
