PLOVER (WAOW)--The parents of a murdered Marshfield native provide money to help homeless animals.
Kevin and Jean Zimmerman donated money to the Portage County Humane Society. Saturday, April 7th, the humane society will hold the Brittany Zimmerman Memorial Microchip Clinic from 11-4.
Brittany Zimmerman was murdered in her off-campus apartment in Madison on April 2, 2008. Brittany was attending UW-Madison at the time, and planned to go into a medical field when she graduated. The day she was murdered, she went home for lunch and to feed her three cats. Someone brutally attacked her. Her killer remains on the loose.
Brittany's parents hope to keep their daughter's legacy alive by holding the microchip clinic. Dolores Glytas of the Portage County Humane Society says there are 150 microchips available, "It is first come first serve. We do ask that people limit themselves to bringing in two animals per family."
The animal shelter is located at 3200 Iber Lane in Plover. The telephone number is:715-344-6012.
