Toyota of Scranton donates rescue vehicle to animal shelter – (We need more actions like this)

SCRANTON (WOLF) — Check out the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter’s new ride.
It’s called the ‘Rescue Vehicle’- and was just donated to the shelter from Toyota of Scranton this week.
The dealership found out the shelter’s old one was out of service, so it gave away a 2018 RAV 4.
The shelter says it’ll be used to rescue animals in our communities, and even and hours away.
“It’s not just in this area, we’ll go to Philly, we’ll go to New York,” the shelter’s behavior coordinator Jimmy Mancus said “To have such a reliable vehicle now, unfortunately some of our vehicles are kind of on our last legs, so to have this new vehicle and to have Toyota of Scranton be able to do this for us, is going to make a world of difference for us which is great.”
The car will also be used to take animals to the vet.
Toyota of Scranton donated a van to the shelter last year too.
