A volunteer with the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter that burned down on Friday night says all of the 21 dogs that made it out have found a home. But the nonprofit that runs the shelter could use donations to help rebuild.
Martin said the dogs were penned in a horseshoe shape around the edge of the building. The cats were in an interior room and firefighters had just begun to bring them out when the shelter roof collapsed. They were able to rescue only 3 cats.
Martin said those wanting to donate to the shelter should do so through the group's official Facebook page.
