On Tuesday Liz Money and Diane Denson, owners of Ship Shape Boutique on South Padre Island, presented the Laguna Madre Humane Society with a check for $2,380.

The funds were raised at Ship Shape’s annual fashion show in February. 250 wom­en attended.

“We asked them to donate to the shelter and told them we’d match whatever they donated up to $1000,” Money said. “The ladies went above and beyond, donating $1380. We want that money to be used spaying and neutering pets so that they have a better chance of being adopted.”

Members of the LMHS Board of Directors and shel­ter staff were present to ac­cept the check.

“We’re just so grateful to Liz and Diane for their contri­bution,” said board president Becky Johnson. “It’s always amazing to see the commu­nity support us.”

The Laguna Madre Hu­mane Society operates the only no-kill shelter in the Valley located at the Isabel Y. Garcia building in Port Isabel. It is a nonprofit organization supported by volunteers, do­nations, memberships, and grants.
