Wired PR News.com – A Dallas based animal shelter with a no-kill policy is in serious need of funding to maintain operations past November. As reported by CBS 11 News, the Humane Society of Dallas shelter has had to resort to not taking in many of the animals surrendered to them due to money troubles. The Humane Society has reportedly not refused animals surrendered to their care in 30 years.
The shelter has seen a decline in donations that parallel the onset of economic issues spotlighted in the media over the course of several months. The organization was said to have a $2,000 shortage for meeting their operating budget for November, which had left them unable to provide essential services for some of the animals, until a local donor provided them with funding to get them through the month. Arthur Benjamin of the Dallas area is now encouraging individuals to join him in helping keep the shelter running past November by providing a financial donation.
