Saving Orphaned Animals in Shelbyville is celebrating their 10 year anniversary since it changed over from the pound. Penny Standifer, with Saving Orphaned Animals and the Shelbyville Police Department said over time they've been able to raise money and this year, after ten years, they were able to open a new facility with hot water, heat, and even an adoption room.
Standifer said, on Sunday February 19th, they are holding a fundraiser for Saving Orphaned Animals at the Sullivan VFW, where all proceeds will go to Saving Orphaned Animals.
Standifer said they receive animals from Animal Control and animal surrenders, but on average, per year, they have 250 adoptions. Standifer said donations are also welcome and will benefit all of their animals to get them food, medicine, pest prevention, and more.
Standifer appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM morning show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios.
