The Gulf Coast Humane Society received a very special gift Wednesday courtesy of a local charity. The group "Paws for Claws" donated $42,000, $27,000 of which goes directly to the shelter.

The rest of the money went to People Assisting Animal Control and the Fallen Horse Rescue.

The money was raised at "Paws for Claws" annual fundraiser called Furball which was held back in November.
