    Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter is receiving just over 77-hundred dollars through the Michigan Companion Animal Welfare Fund.

    The money comes from a state tax form check-off program and will fund projects totaling over $155,500 for 26 registered shelters this year.

    The Michigan Animal Welfare fund started in 2007 as a tax check-off to support animal shelters statewide.

    This year’s awards will go to the spaying and neutering of animals, fund registration fees for anti-cruelty training conferences, and help cover costs for protecting and caring for Michigan animals subjected to cruelty or neglect.
