BECKLEY, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Water issues continue to plague the Raleigh County area following significant drops in temperature over the holiday weekend, and the Humane Society of Raleigh County is one of the most recent public entities to report having been affected by the unfortune circumstances.
The Humane Society of Raleigh County released a statement Tuesday morning detailing damage sustained to their Grey Flats Rd location due to pipes and water lines which had burst throughout the building despite precautionary measures having been taken beforehand.
“The shelter suffered a devastating blow yesterday. [When] our staff arrived, they found busted water lines all through the building,” read the statement. ”
Included was a brief clip in which a facility hallway could be seen to have incurred flooding.
As such, the facility is projected to remain closed throughout the week as proper repairs are arranged and insurance is sorted out.
“We anticipate being closed for the remainder of the week based upon the fact that we are waiting on the insurance company, looking for a plumber, which didn’t happen today, and trying our best to clean, take care of our furbabies and just assess what needs accomplished,” the statement continued.
“We are in need of gallons of water and could most definitely use monetary donations to get things needed for repairs, etc.”
In the face of the ongoing circumstances, adoptions through Humane Society of Raleigh County will be done by appointment. Meet-and-greet appointments can be set up by calling (304) 253-8921.
