A goal of $50,000 was recently surpassed to help fund the Future Boonville Animal Shelter.

With the help of citizens, organizations and the City of Boonville, this project will soon take shape. Most recently, the Boonville Foundation narrowed the gap by donating a check for $1,450, which now makes the total 51,694.

John Baker, of the Boonville Community Foundation and Foundation of Central Missouri, said these extra funds will make it possible to add something extra that could not be added in earlier.
