Work is moving fast to repair the fire-damaged portion of the Christian County Animal Shelter and people from across the country continue to show their support.
Shelter Director Irene Grace says the facility is no longer on temporary power and work has begun to repair the roof.
Ms. Grace wants to remind residents the shelter is back open for regular business hours using half the shelter and they are welcome to drop in to look at adoptable cats and dogs.
Christian County Treasurer Walter Cummings says cash donations to the shelter since the fire have totaled $5,125 and have come from 25 different states and the District of Columbia. The states represented range from California to Vermont and from Florida to Texas. Ms. Grace says she can’t thank the shelter’s supporters enough and says contributions of food items and cat litter have also consistently come in since last week’s fire.
