They do their best to keep the animals warm, but it is a big building with a lot of doors, gates, fencing, and openings that allow the cold to creep in. It’s just the nature of the season, especially with temperatures as they are.
If you have any blankets or sweaters to donate, I’m sure they could be put to use. If you have a warm home to offer, that would be even better.
Vist. Volunteer. Donate. Adopt.
