On October 5, the Township of Brock held a dedication ceremony to acknowledge the generous contribution from the late Jessie Ann Grant.
Jessie, Mayor John Grant’s sister, donated a portion of her estate to the Brock Dench Animal Shelter after she passed away in 2018. This donation was utilized to construct an outdoor dog compound which allows dogs to run and play off-leash.
The Grant family gathered on this day, which is also Jessie’s birthday, along with Jessie’s dog Dakota and current owner and friend Jim Teel.
The Township of Brock is incredibly grateful for Jessie’s gift and has ordered a dedication plaque to be displayed at the shelter.
“The compound allows the dogs to run and play freely, unrestricted. When people come to adopt animals, they can come outside to this beautiful compound and play with these animals. It has made a huge difference and we could not appreciate it more,” said Sarah Beauregard-Jones, By-Law Enforcement / Animal Control Supervisor
