May 16, 2016 Mullins, S.C. – Anderson Brothers Bank has donated one of their Mullins buildings, which is located at 501 E McIntyre Street, formally Old Mullins Lumber Company, to Marion County for future use by Marion County Animal Shelter.

The 12,000 square foot building located on 6.37 acres was deeded to Marion County with plans for the structure to serve as its animal shelter. Current plans call for the building to be renovated and space to expand and accommodate the current animal shelters needs for more room and better environment for its occupants. In addition, the property has enclosed fencing around the rear to provide much needed space for turnouts or runs for its large dog population along with an existing shelter for additional expansions.

"We have been working with Marion County on this project for quite a while and to finally get the building turned over into their possession is a positive step forward for Marion County," said Johnny Floyd, Marion County Executive of Anderson Brothers Bank. “Anderson Brothers Bank is proud to be able to help provide Marion County with a facility to improve the conditions of its Animal Shelter.”

Marion County’s current site is located on Hwy 76 between Mullins and Marion at 123 Cat and Dog Road.

"On behalf of Marion County and Marion County Council, I would like to thank Anderson Brothers Bank for the building donation. This is our first step in establishing a new Animal Shelter for Marion County,” said Tim Harper, Marion County Administrator. “The establishment of a new Animal Shelter is needed in the County. With this donation we can start seeking funds for the renovations to provide a much better facility. Anderson Brothers Bank has and continues to be a great community partner and we are lucky to have their support. As we begin to start seeking the funds for this renovation, we hope others will be willing to partner with us to make this project a success."
