TEXARKANA, Ark. (KTAL/KMSS) – A Southwest Arkansas animal shelter is about to get a million-dollar donation, thanks to the generosity of a local family.
Officials at the Animal Care & Adoption Center in Texarkana say they have been informed the facility is set to receive the donation from the Neva Nell McCormick Trust, in honor of her parents, Thomas A. Green and Ida Mae Green.
Animal Care & Adoption Center Director Kayla Tucker said half the money will be used to pay back the loan on the new shelter addition currently under construction and the other half will be used to upgrade the current adoption building, along with some other upgrades.
The check presentation is set for next Wednesday, February 17.
Tucker said the shelter is one of a few organizations that are benefitting from McCormick’s generosity.
