Community rallies to rebuild Lynn County Animal Shelter

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Two donations made on Friday will help the Lynn County Animal Shelter rebuild.

A fire destroyed part of the shelter and killed several cats on Thursday. It also left the shelter without a wellness center to vaccinate animals.

On Friday, the Lubbock Area Foundation donated $5,000 to help them rebuild.

Lubbock Area Foundation President Cheryl Cates said, "We just want to say a special thank you to our fund donors who believe in animal welfare and loving animals and taking care of them."

The shelter also received a donation of $2,000 from organizers of the Lynn County Harvest Festival, who donated money in honor of their princess and queen pageant winners.

Susan Tipton with the Lynn County Harvest Festival Committee said, "We felt like this would be an honor to them to donate back to their community on behalf of the festival."

Donations are still being accepted.

You can send them to:

Animal Services Office
PO Box 523
Tahoka, TX 79373
