Humane Society without power, tries to keep animals warm

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

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

Like most Arkansans, theshelter lost electricity on Christmas night. 400 animals need to keep warm includingcats, dogs, nursing babies, and injured pets.

They have a smallgenerator on loan but it's not enough for all the animals, according toSimpson.

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

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