MERIDIAN -- After losing funding and their building earlier this year, the Meridian Valley Humane Society was forced to start over from scratch in November.

It's been challenging, but the shelter is getting some help from the community. Most recently, the shelter received a $250 from students at Meridian High School.

Shelter board member Nancy Harvey says a group of students chose the rescue as the recipient of their community outreach fundraising event.

For the fundraiser, the kids made dog biscuits, packaged them, marketed them, and sold them.

"With people like this behind us, the rescue will succeed!" said Harvey.

Since reopening in November, the shelter has adopted out over 25 dogs.
