Replace AC Unit at Animal Shelter

$5,070 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 77 people in 20 months
My name is Kelly Miller and I am raising money to help with the  cost of replacing the air conditioning unit at the Columbus County Animal Shelter. The shelter operates on a budget that is hundreds of thousands of dollars below neighboring counties. The employees  truly do the best they can to take care of the animals and the staff works tirelessly to get the animals adopted into good homes. Our shelter is currently at FULL capacity and with no air conditioning, temps often hover around or above 100 degrees. These animals need relief. The quicker we can get the money, the quicker the AC can be installed. Please consider giving so we can provide a little comfort for the animals that, unfortunately for now, must call a shelter home.

We met our goal!! I will be withdrawing the funds in my name. I am then going to write a check for the amount that I withdrew to the Columbus County Humane Society. The Humane Society will see that the Animal Shelter gets the funds that will help with the cost of the air conditioning. I will be delivering the check to the Columbus County Humane Society personally as soon as I receive the funds. Thank you so much to all who donated!!

WOW!! The cost of the new AC unit at the Animal Shelter is $30,000. I was hoping to raise $5000 to donate toward the cost. In a little over an hour and a half, $820 has been raised! I am certain we can reach $5000 and maybe more!! Any amount is very much appreciated. My heart is overflowing at the love shown for these animals! Ya'll are GREAT!!!

Are the funds being paid directly to the Air Conditioning provider ? This is an incredible and wonderful effort, and greatly appreciated that you made Kelly ! Sorry I didn't see this sooner than after the fact. Thank you and everyone so much for your generosity in making this happen !

How will this work? Will this pay for the AC directly or will it go into a county general fund for the county to spend how it sees fit? Is the county going to allow a private donation to purchase and our install the AC?

I ask that all my friends and family please help by donating if only $5. Any money is greatly appreciated and the sooner we help Kelly get the money needed the AC can be fixed. I personally feel sorry that the animals had to endure 100 degree weather this weekend so let's make sure they don't have to again
