A local animal rescue group is benefiting from the generosity of another animal organization with a 5 thousand dollar donation

Because You Care has an adoption center in the 6 thousand block of west road in Mckean.

The center is now just for cats, but a building being constructed next door will be for the adoption of dogs.

Kori's Kritters was started by Tracey Durkin who lost her daughter Kori in a car accident 3 years ago.

Durkin presented a check this morning for 5 thousand dollars to Because You Care. The money was raised during a fundraiser earlier this year.

Kori’s Kritters selects an organization each year to donate money to. Durkin said her daughter had recently completed vet school, so this organization, established in her memory, helps her cope with the loss of her daughter and at the same time helps organizations her daughter was fond of.
