Lillian Ellis of Virginia recently donated $105.80, raised by collecting cans and bottles, to start Bradford County Humane Society’s fund to build a separate isolation kennel for dogs that either need a long-term stay or are quarantined.
These kennels will include a warm and sturdy building for indoor kennels with outdoor runs accessible right from the kennels.
In a press release, a BCHS representative stated, “The new kennels, with their large outdoor yards, will absolutely save the sanity of dogs who cannot stand being close to other dogs 24 hours a day.”
Lillian Ellis, 12 years old, was visiting from Virginia with her grandmother, Beverly Baker of Athens, when she heard about the plan to build an isolation or quarantine kennel adjacent to the shelter. She immediately came up with the first money to support the project, and it could not have a more solid or generous start, according to BCHS officials.
BCHS is a no-kill shelter and a United Way Agency.
