Funding needed for new shelter
The SPCA of the Kenai Peninsula Inc. is receiving requests for more animals than it can handle. The group would like to start building its shelter immediately, but is in need of additional funding. Anyone interested in assisting with in-kind or financial donations is asked to contact the group at 262-8800. Tax-deductible contributions can be mailed to P.O. Box 4243, Soldotna, AK 99669-4243. The SPCA of the Kenai Peninsula reminds residents to spay or neuter their pets, as it helps to keep them safe and helps prevent unwanted litters.
