Animal shelter recovering from fire

Posted:

An animal shelter that burnt down last April in Hot Springs is starting to make progress with its renovations.    

The pups who call Battle Mountain Humane Society home, now have the delight of a new roof over their heads, and 25 brand new kennels to sleep in.

Other renovations include cement flooring and heaters.

The shelters vice president, Michelle Brock, says a number of projects still need to be completed, but thanks to many generous supporters and donors, the shelter is on its way to being completed.

'It's been a struggle and every time we get ourselves in a bind our supporters come through," said Brock. "And we're really grateful for that."

Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan gave 47 fleece coats that would have cost more than $1,000 to purchase.

The Humane Society also received a $1,000 donation from Betty White, and a $5,000 donation from race car driver Ryan Newman.

Brock also says the community has supported the shelter greatly.

A long list of fundraiser's are in store for the shelter, including golf tournaments, auctions, dinners, and bake sales.

The biggest expenses for the shelter are dog food and the veterinarian bill.
