The John and Melissa Besse Foundation donated $450,000 to the Delta Animal Shelter. This donation brings the shelter one big step closer to the construction of their new location.
The Foundation has also agreed to match all community donations up to an additional $150,000.
To show their appreciation, the shelter is naming their new location the John and Melissa Besse Pet Adoption Center.
â??John and Melissa were both very much believers in giving back to the community,â?? said Delta Animal Shelter manager Susan Gartland. â??And, we are so appreciative and humbled that the animals in this community will be a part of their legacy.â??
