OCONTO, Wis. (WFRV) - An Oconto Shelter in danger of going out of business tells Local 5 it will not be closing for now.             

The Oconto Area Humane Society was so far behind on its bills that managers said it would have to shut down unless funds came in.

This past weekend the shelter raised $6,700 during an open house event.

Many animals were adopted which helps lower costs.

The  shelter is also seeking additional funds from the county board. 

They will meet with the Oconto County board next month to see if there is any county funding available.
