A North Platte organization that encourages people to spay/neuter their pets, adopt homeless animals and support the local animal shelter will receive $600,000 from the estate of the late Judge Earl Morgan.
Morgan’s family contested the will. A settlement was reached earlier this week. His estate was estimated at some $3.2 million. Morgan died June 20, 2008, He was 89.
Paws-itive Partners is a small, volunteer group of animal lovers that was formed in 1998. It has struggled to raise funds and educate the public about responsible pet ownership, implement spay/neuter programs to control pet overpopulation, promote the adoption of homeless animals and to support the North Platte Animal Shelter.
President Diane Morales said the money would allow Paws-itive Partners to make serious plans for a sanctuary. She said the group would continue to raise money toward that end.
