A local animal shelter is asking for your help. 

The Greene County Animal Farm is seeking donations to help with the expenses that they have caring for the animals. 

Spokesperson for the farm, Lou Ann McElyea, said that caring for the animals gets expensive. 

“If you have pets yourself you know just what heart worm preventive cost you and that has to be applied every month,” McElyea said. “Even though the vets have worked with the shelter very nicely, they still they still have costs and we still have to pay just like you would with your own pets.”

The Greene County Animal Farm is also need volunteers to help with landscaping the property and to play with the animals. 

McElyea said that while they do have fundraisers for the farm, most of the money they receive is from individual donations.
