The Copeland Family Foundation, Inc. of Milton has generously granted $1 million dollars that will go towards a new Milton Animal Shelter that will be situated on Governor Stoughton Lane! The Milton Animal League’s current establishment is quite worn down and the need for a new facility was clearly a necessity of the near future for the town.
With a great deal of homeless and endangered animals in the area, as there are in countless locations, the luxury of having a state of the art facility could benefit and save more animal lives than currently possible and for many more years to come. Of course this has thrilled the Milton Animal Control Officer, Nancy Bersani, and Milton Animal League President, Linda Palmer, who along with the town can’t wait to relocate from their present 1970 built structure.
The Copeland Family Foundation contends that within the 30 days after the Milton Animal League awards the contract to begin construction, they will make their grant to this cause. This fundraising effort was one that was not expected to be completed for quite a few years, thus why the overjoy and excitement of all those involved is truly through the roof. So congratulations to the town of Milton and the Milton Animal League, we are looking forward to following along with this progress!
