Seneca County Give 10K To Keep Animal Shelter Open

The Beverly Animal Shelter in Waterloo will remain open through the end of the year. Supporters of the shelter got more than they bargained for from the Seneca County Board of Supervisors Tuesday night. Four thousand dollars more, to be exact. Supervisors voted unanimously to provide $10-thousand dollars to keep the shelter open through the end of this year. Shelter owner Dallyn Jenkins had hoped for $6-thousand dollars as a last ditch effort to keep the shelter operating. In addition to the $10-thousand dollars in county funds, Supervisor Fred Trickler made a personal 100 dollar donation to the shelter. Supervisors Pete Same, Patsy Amidon, David Dresser and county manager Sharon Secor followed suit with donations of their own. Jenkins says she’s confident the county will work with the shelter to find a long term solution to keep the facility open.
