PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Animal shelters across the commonwealth are a little better off thanks to a surprise donation.
One of those donations went to the Pike County Animal Shelter.
Judge Executive Wayne T. Rutherford got a letter telling him the shelter was getting nearly $1,500 dollars from the estate of Bland C. Hardison.
Hardison left money to every shelter in the state when he died.
Pike County officials say they hope the money will help save some of the animals' lives.
