Shelter workers racing the clock to move animals again

Officials and volunteers at a central Kentucky animal shelter continue to clean up after flooding forced them to move dozens of cats and dogs to higher ground.

People at the Franklin County Animal Shelter were forced to move more than 100 animals from the shelter this past weekend, when heavy rain caused water to rise in their facility. Dogs were loaded up and taken to Lake View Park, while cats were taken to the Downtown Civic Center.

Now, Lake View Park has to prepare for a previously scheduled event, meaning the dogs there have to find another place to go. Volunteers are rushing to get the Humane Society ready, so they can take the animals back where they belong.

"The only problem we have is that it's going to rain again. The water rushes in. We'll be back at square one," said Trudi Johnson, who works at the shelter.

Officials at the shelter say they will need plenty of volunteers on Thursday to get these dogs moved. If you would like to help, call the shelter at 502-875-7297.
