Humane Society without power, tries to keep animals warm

Posted: Updated:

The Humane Society of Pulaski County is trying to figure out how to keep animals safe and healthy without power.

"We're keeping everybody as dry and warm as we can," said Director Kay Simpson.

Like most Arkansans, the shelter lost electricity on Christmas night. 400 animals need to keep warm including cats, dogs, nursing babies, and injured pets.

They have a small generator on loan but it's not enough for all the animals, according to Simpson.

"We had some bedding stuck back for an emergency. We had enough for three days. Last night we used the last of it so we're asking for help from the public so we can keep the animals as comfortable as we can until we get power back," Simpson said.

The Humane Society can use newspapers, rugs, comforters, and blankets as bedding. For more on what they need and how to donate, click here.
