The Newberry County Animal Shelter was presented with a symbolic check for $70,000 for future projects from the Newberry County Humane Society on Friday morning. The humane society is purchasing signs including an LED sign on S.C. 34, a playground for dogs and walking area. The money comes from the Grace Smith Estate and Eleanor Blumberg Estate from the humane society.
