- One year in the human world compares to seven years in a dog's world. While we have no idea of knowing how animals value money, if at all... 10,000 dollars for animals can go a long way.
Mole Lake gave ten-thousand-dollars to the Forest County Animal Shelter. The shelter needs the money and already has plans to put it to good use.
"Not only do we have to pay for their food and shelter but we also have to pay for their vet bills, to get them spayed an neutered, to get them vaccinated, things like that. So it's desperately needed," says Marin Herbert, Shelter Operations Manager.
The shelter has many cats and dogs up for adoption. Fees are small and used just to cover some of the expenses of the shelter.
"It's a hundred and thirty dollars for a dog and sixty dollars for a cat. We're having a February special for cats. So now their adoption fee is down to thirty dollars and that just helps us to bring some money back into the shelter," say Marin Herbert.
