San-Lee Humane Society Stops Accepting Pets

Posted July 19, 2002 1:03 a.m. EDT

— Financial struggles have forced a Lee County animal shelter to stop accepting pets.

The dogs and cats already at the

San-Lee Humane Society

will stay until they are adopted.

The humane society will continue its spay and neuter program and plans to reopen the shelter in a year after volunteers raise money through donations.

The agency lost its funding from the county several months ago when it became a no-kill shelter.
