HUMBOLDT COUNTY- The Humboldt County Animal Shelter has raised $8,000 from the Holiday Open House to raise money for their Emergency Medical Fund. The shelter doubled the amount of money they raised last year.
The fund is to help treat animals who need more medical treatment than the shelter can afford. The money was raised from community members who attended the fundraiser on Saturday.
Shelter staff said they were very full at the start of December, but have been able to reduce their numbers with the help of discounted adoption rates. The special is to encourage people to adopt animals for the holiday.
