Ribbon cutting held for new animal rescue in Snow Hill

SNOW HILL, GREENE COUNTY (WITN) Ribbon cutting ceremonies were held Tuesday in Snow Hill for the Beare Garden Plantation Animal Rescue facility.

The rescue facility is located at 1164 US Highway 258 North in Snow Hill.

Beare Garden Plantation Animal Rescue's mission is to ease the pain, hunger, abuse, as well as to provide shelter and help to find forever homes for animals.

The rescue says by acting as a resource and educating the community about issues pertaining to animals, they feel that they can move toward the prevention of over breeding of animals.

Though the rescue has rescued and adopted out some dogs, the focus will be primarily on cats and kittens until funding allows for a facility expansion that can accommodate dogs.
