Group raises $7,000 for Marshall, TX animal shelter

MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) - The Friends of Marshall Animals raised around $10,000 at a fundraiser Saturday night.

The group put on a Casino fundraiser at Central Perks in downtown Marshall.

Of the $10,000, about $7,000 was profited and will go towards things to equip and support the new shelter.

The city has a plot of land adjacent to the city arena designated for a new shelter, spokeswoman Kelly Colvin said.

The city is in the designing and planning process for the shelter and hoping to break ground sometime this year.

Anyone who wants to help the shelter can also volunteer to foster animals.
