$200,000 for Griffin Pond Animal Shelter

The Lackawanna County Commissioners presented a $200,000 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) check to the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter/Humane Society of Lackawanna County.  The much-needed resources will provide finances for the organization to cover staff costs, supplies, medicine, and general operations.  Like all small, non-profits, Griffin Pond was negatively impacted tremendously during the COVID-19 pandemic.
