Bennettsville, SC – July 24, 2023 – MPD Electric Cooperative is pleased to donate $2,500 to the Marlboro County Humane Society, a non-profit animal rescue organization devoted to saving, rehabilitating, and re-homing abandoned and abused animals in Marlboro County. A small staff plus an amazing group of volunteers provide daily care, feeding, housing and medical assistance for animals in need.

In 2021, the Marlboro County Humane Society placed more than 1,300 pets from the animal shelter with rescue partners and transported them across the U.S.

“We are pleased to provide this support,” said Matt Haynie, chief marketing officer of MPD Electric Cooperative. “The humane society’s work rescuing and rehabilitating some of the area’s most vulnerable animals should be commended. It is tough, tough work, and we thank them for their giving hearts.”
