$1m to build new Milton animal shelter
An animal shelter in Milton received an early Christmas present when a local charity gave it a $1 million grant. The Milton Animal League announced at the town’s Board of Selectmen meeting Wednesday night that it was granted $1 million by the Copeland Family Foundation to fund construction of a new shelter. The foundation is a private, not-for-profit group based in Milton that has made large donations to the town over the last 30 years. The Copeland family also helped to establish the League in 1978.
