CASS COUNTY, Ind. — A woman’s love for animals lives on at the Cass Co. Humane Society.

Before she died, Shirley Hines told her family that she wished to leave half of her estate — more than $500,000 — to the humane society.

The money was released to the group last year, after Shirley’s husband, Wayne, passed away, according to the Pharos-Tribune newspaper.

Lisa Clark, executive director of the humane society, told the Pharos-Tribune the money is going toward a spay-and-neuter program for cats and dogs at the shelter.
