FARMINGTON — Al Tuttle of Tuttle Auto Sales recently donated a new metal storage shed to the The Franklin County Animal Shelter.

Tuttle, of New Sharon, said he loves animals and this was something he could do to help the shelter. The extra storage space means that the shelter can put the animal crates and cartons in a weather-proof facility that won’t get in the way of animal care in the building itself.

Darlene Rowe, a member of the shelter’s board of directors, worked with Tuttle to arrange for the building to be installed on site, just in time for fall and winter. “You can see what a difference it makes in the look of the grounds,” she said and noted the absence of animal crates under the back building outdoor awning.

On hand to present a plaque in appreciation of Tuttle were shelter staff and members of the board of directors. “This is very nice; I truly appreciate this,” said Tuttle, receiving the wooden plaque of appreciation.

The Franklin County Animal Shelter is open to the public from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Currently there are numerous kittens, cats and dogs for adoption. For more information, call 778-2638.
