An animal shelter in Arkansas is being hit by remnants of tropical storm Barry and the flooding has caused one dog at the facility to drown. According to THV 11 News, the deluge of rain is wreaking havoc on Arkadelphia, and the Humane Society of Clark County is pleading for help.
On Tuesday morning, the animal shelter reached out to area residents on social media:
SOS!!!!!!!!!!!! We are flooded. It’s on the building !!! We need help !! Can any of y’all keep a dog or two at your houses????? It’s bad y’all!!! Help help help !!
Board President for Humane Society of Clark County Janie Allen told the news agency that there was so much water at the shelter when she arrived at 3 a.m. that dogs were treading water.
Residents in the area are asked to reach out to the facility at 870-245-2579. You can find the humane society’s Facebook page here.
