ROSCOMMON - The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is pleased to announce that the Roscommon County Animal Shelter has received a grant of $922.00 for a Speed Queen Dryer.

The purpose of this grant is to lighten the work load and save money on electric bills while creating more time to focus on the animals and other areas of work.

“We were literally having to take loads home to dry and we just couldn’t keep up,” Shelter Director DeeDee Mendyk said.

The Roscommon County Animal Shelter hopes that new dryer will cut laundry time in half so that they have more time and funds to make sure that every cat and dog has what they need.

Funding for the project was provided by the Morley Foundation Fund and the Roscommon County General Fund.

For more information about the Roscommon County Animal Shelter and their needs, you can find them on Facebook or visit their website at The shelter would also like to remind the community that there are multiple animals who are still in need of caring and loving homes.
