A devastating fire has destroyed a Dachshund rescue’s dog kennels. On Thursday, Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue, in York, South Carolina, alerted its Facebook followers to the tragic situation.
We lost our kennel tonight. We are unsure how it started, we were right here and completely helpless within minutes.
According to the rescue group, they worked to remove as many dogs as they could from the burning kennels, but the situation quickly became too unsafe for them to continue their efforts.
The rescue agency thanks those who helped
The rescue organization extended thanks to those who helped with the heartbreaking fire:
We would like to thank York county fire department, Newport fire department, and Bethel fire department, York county animal control who is helping us house some of the dogs who made it..Ebenezer vet and Clover vet for coming to our immediate aid. We cannot thank everyone enough.
It is unclear how many dogs perished in the burning kennels. The rescue agency has requested help to rebuild after the horrible tragedy. Donations can be made via this link to the rescue group’s website.
