Animal shelter receives donations from viewers

Last week, the Animal Rescue League was days away from closing.

Board members said they were out of money, food, and were in desperate need of volunteers. Wednesday, organizers said the generosity of people from across the Pine Belt has restored the shelter, and now it can remain open.

The director said this no-kill shelter will continue to prepare animals for adoption thanks to residents.

"I can't say thank you enough, I really can't," said Director Denise Bozeman. "The generosity of people is encouraging in these days and times, and I just want to give a heartfelt thanks to each and every person. If it was one can of food or a large dollar amount, it doesn't matter; every single bit of it counts, and we can't thank you enough."

Bozeman said the Wal-Mart in Hattiesburg and Southern Pines Shelter have been most helpful with food donations.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
