Local animal shelter receives generous grant support for Ark Alley Cats program

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

A $40,000 grant will help the Ark Animal Shelter increase its shelter capacity, while reducing the number of unwanted cats through a trap-neuter-release program. The grant comes through from the Elmina B. Sewall’s animal welfare fund.

“We are so grateful to have the funding,” said Ark Director Shaina Mugford.

Half of the grant will go toward the construction of a new dog shelter, something the Cherryfield-based nonprofit has been working toward for six years.
