One-Hundred Twenty animals are safe but a bit shaken today. It follows a strong storm that caused several thousand dollars in damages to the S-P-C-A. Kennels were overturned and roofs lost their shingles.
We all got the much needed rain, but at the SPCA , the rain also brought high winds which also came with a cost.
"It knocked over many pens in kennels it knocked many kennels into kennels." That from Executive Director Lori Hall.
What you're looking at is the damage. The High winds toppled cages, lifted shingles and destroyed shade for the 120 animals that are housed on the property located along Mohawk Blvd.
"We have damage to our roof. We have roof damage to both our kennel site and our clinic. We have trees down, tree limbs down." 3:50
"Everybody else stay out of the clinic we're going to need you out here."
Cleanup is about to move into high gear. The SPCA staff ready to do what it takes to move the animals and get this place opened again.
"I want you to put 'em in their outside pen."
One of the animals did get scared by yesterday's sudden storm and underwent treatment at the on site clinic which also sustained damage.
"We had one little puppy that was injured due to fright from the storm, but he's been checked out by our vet. He's a-okay and he's ready to go play with his buddies again."
We asked the SPCA for a wish list to help them and the animals get through last night's setback.
Some of our swimming pools have blown away, so we need swimming pools to keep the dogs cooled while they're out while we're cleaning inside their kennels in this hot heat.
Tarps were also damaged, shredding any possibility of shade the animals would otherwise get. Downed tree limbs also nix the opportunity for shade.
The SPCA says it needs tarps and plastic swimming pools to keep the animals cool.
The S-P-C-A Holds its annual BINGO BASH Fundraiser tomorrow at the V-F-W At 6th and Peoria. AdvanceTickets are $20 and $25 at the door.
