Fire Damages Clark County Animal Shelter

Posted: Updated:

WINCHESTER, Ky. (LEX 18) -- Quick-thinking staff members were able to save all the animals after a fire broke out at the Clark County Animal Shelter last week. Now, workers and volunteers are asking for the public's help so they can continue doing good for stray animals.

According to a post by the organization, the fire was contained mostly to the interior of the original shelter building. A few animals were treated for smoke inhalation, but all are expected to be okay.

Two-thirds of all the dog kennels at the shelter were damaged after the fire. Twenty kennels cannot be used. 

Until insurance adjusters do their final examination, the shelter can't do anything. The main thing the shelter needs right now is money to rebuild. 

The shelter is in need of donations of bleach, liquid laundry detergent and towels or blankets. Monetary donations are also accepted.

You can drop off donations or mail them to:

Clark County Animal Shelter
5000 Ironworks Road
Winchester, KY 40391

You can also drop off items at Advanced Turf Equipment behind Frank's Donuts and The Williams Agency Insurance Office during their regular operating hours.
