Lee County No-Kill Animal Shelter Forced To Close

Posted March 11, 2002 8:12 a.m. EST

— Money troubles are forcing a local animal shelter to close its doors.


San-Lee Humane Society

said that it cannot afford to accept any more animals. It lost funding from the county several months ago when it became a "no-kill" shelter.

Last weekend, volunteers from the Animal Rescue League of Boston picked up more than 30 dogs and cats to bring to waiting families up north.

The San-Lee Humane Society will close when the rest of its animals are adopted.
