Good Samaritan Donates To Animal Shelter Every Saturday

A Tyler woman has kept her New Year's resolution for the past two years, delivering smiles and a few barks.

Karen Ratliff devotes her time to the Humane Society of Smith County. Every Saturday for the past two years, she has dropped off food, supplies, and anything else the shelter needs. Ratliff also works with abused dogs to help them feel more comfortable around humans.

She says there's a reason she chose to help animals.

"We have enough things out there that help with the people, and The Salvation Army helps, and Good Will and all that," she said. "But not enough people help with the animals and donate and all that."

Ratliff also remembers the people who work at the Humane Society. She brings them treats, medicine, and other supplies.
