Roscommon County Animal Shelter Receives Grant for Speed Queen Dryer

The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is pleased to announce that the Roscommon County Animal Shelter has received a grant of $922.00 for a Speed Queen Dryer. Funding for the project was provided by the Morley Foundation Fund and the Roscommon County General Fund.

The purpose of this grant is to lighten the workload and save money on electric bills while creating more time to focus on the animals and other areas of work.

“We were literally having to take loads home to dry and we just couldn’t keep up,” said Shelter Director DeeDee Mendyk.

The Roscommon County Animal Shelter hopes that Speed Queen Dryer will cut laundry time in half so that they have more time and funds to make sure that every cat and dog has what they need.
