During last weekend’s historic snowstorm, a Baltimore-area no-kill animal shelter buried in the white stuff put out a desperate call for help.
That call was answered. Big time.
Baltimore Humane Society spokesperson Wendy Goldband tells BarkPost that on top of donating much-needed money, “lots of local people came in to volunteer their manpower. We are still working on clearing passageways, but very much in control and operational.”
Seven Baltimore Humane Society staff members spent three full nights at the shelter, sleeping on floors and cots, shoveling pathways, and taking care of the animals.
“Fantastic help!” says Goldband.
What the shelter still needs: A backup generator and a tree-cutting service to take care of some compromised trees in the memorial park — the only pet cemetery in the area.
Goldband says that due to storm damage, the pet cemetery will be unsafe for visitors until the trees are removed.
