Thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities, the Lawrence Humane Society is $50,000 further along in its fundraising efforts to build a new animal shelter.
The Humane Society has been raising money toward the $7.5 million project since last spring. Shelter leaders said they are grateful for the PetSmart grant and that it contributes to the larger goal of saving the lives of more animals.
“It’s also a huge testament to our current — and future — efforts to help pets in our community,” Humane Society Executive Director Kate Meghji said in a press release. “In 2017, we saved more lives than ever before in our organization’s history.”
