An Early Christmas Gift for the Lubbock Animal Shelter

In a previous report on Newschannel 11 at 10, we showed you why the shelter desperately needs your help. Their roof is in bad shape, and recent rains have created a mess. Tarps were put on the roof to keep the water out and the staff was busy mopping up the remaining water. Even worse, the area leaking the most is where all the pets are. Now, one day later, it looks like their problems are over.

Thanks to the help of some good samaritans, the shelter will be getting a new roof by the end of the week. On Wednesday morning, the animal shelter received dozens of phone calls from local companies wanting to help. Cameron Ashley incorportated will donate all the supplies for a new roof. Big State Roofing will replace the roof for free.

Work is scheduled to begin on Friday or once the weather permits. Shelter Manager, Nancy Hickman, says she's excited things are happening so soon. "It was really neat to know people cared, they really cared about what we do here at the shelter and they care enough to do something for the animals," says Nancy Hickman.

Iif you'd like to help, you can do two things. You can donate to the animal shelter's building fund or you can participate in their Christmas for the animals program. If you are looking for more information, call the shelter at (806) 775-2057 .

NewsChannel 11 also spoke with Assistant City Manger, Tommy Gonzales. He says the animal shelter needs some interior renovations and more staffing. These issues will be presented to city council during the next budget process sometime in February.
