Shelby County animal shelter exceeds $2.4M fundraising goal

The snow didn't postpone a major milestone Saturday in the construction of the new Bob Sergeant and Family Shelby County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center, according to News Center 7's Northern Bureau Chief Steve Baker.

Volunteers reached, and exceeded by $20,000, the goal of $2.4 million to build the new shelter.
