Beltrami County Humane Society could close its doors next year if it doesn't find $40,000
Heather Hertel met the friend she had been looking for - a brown and white cat named Liberty.
It was cute, cuddly and friendly with other cats and dogs, all the qualities she was looking for in a pet.
Hertel eventually left the Beltrami Humane Society empty-handed, needing more time to think about adopting a pet, but she may only have a month to decide. If the nonprofit organization doesn't fill a $40,000 budget shortfall, it could close its doors by the end of December.
