MARSHALL, Texas (KETK)- The city of Marshall received $100,000 from the Friends of Marshall Animals organization.

According to the city, these funds were presented on Feb. 4 for the construction of the new Marshall Pet Adoption Center.

This check is expected to be one of many due to a previous commitment to raise $450,000 from private donors to fund the new building.
