Grimes County Animal Rescue has begun its fundraising project to raise money for construction of a dog and cat shelter in Anderson.
Officials say construction will begin as soon as enough funds are raised.
Grimes County residents are being asked to contribute money to construct the shelter. No government or county funds are being given for the facility, with all funds coming from private citizens or businesses.
Grimes County Animal Rescue President Kristin Carrell, says the organization is about one-third of the way toward the funds needed, after substantial contributions by two Grimes County citizens.
The shelter will be located in Anderson and house approximately 50 dogs and cats. The land for the shelter has been approved and provided by the Grimes County Commissioners”.
Grimes County citizens can assist with the construction of the animal shelter by making contributions to Grimes County Animal Rescue at P.O. Box 767, Anderson, TX 77830 or at its website, grimescountyanimalrescue.com.
