Crimp gives $1m to SPCA shelter

Invercargill businessman Louis Crimp has donated $1 million to the SPCA to build a new city animal shelter.

Mr Crimp had previously donated $200,000 to the SPCA to fund cat desexing and animal cruelty inspection programmes.

SPCA manager Mary Bradley said the present shelter, off Bluff Highway, was becoming increasingly dilapidated and cold.

Committee member Kate Buchanan said it had now raised $1.4m.
