    The Moab Animal Shelter is the beneficiary of a generous $1,000 donation from a couple who wishes to remain anonymous. Gordon Beh, a partner at Moab certified public accounting firm Larson & Company PC said the couple recently moved from the area after living here for a long time. They were clients of the firm and asked Gordon to be their agent to protect their anonymity. “They expressed their continued love of the area and people in Moab,” said Beh.

    “Many thanks to the anonymous angels who donated $1,000 to the Moab City Animal Shelter,” said Manager Janette Woodruff. “This money will help dogs that need various types of medical attention. There is already money in place for cats.” The photograph shows Bigums who is among the dogs that will benefit from the donation.
