Tuesday’s heavy rains caused some big problems at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.
Staff members went into “full crisis mode” to move dozens of animals as the kennels flooded.
It’s a doggone problem. The kennel runs fill up first, then the water pours in from the patios. Staff moved dozens of dogs. The cat lanai and food storage areas weren’t spared a soaking, either. The current building on N. Armenia Avenue in Tampa has been in use since the 1960s.
The privately-funded project to renovate is in need of another $2 million in donations. The hope is to break ground on a new facility this spring. According to 10 News.
