Christian Co. animal shelter reopens after fire

Posted: Updated:
HOPKINSVILLE, KY (WSMV) -

The Christian County Animal Shelter is back in business after a fire on Mar. 18, officials said.

Already six animals have been dropped off at the facility in Hopkinsville, according to Irene Grace, shelter director.

Crews have already begun working on repairing the fire damage in the back of the shelter, with neat stacks of burned roofing tin and timbers. Officials said it's still not clear what started the fire, but they do not believe it was suspicious.

More than 200 animals were adopted or fostered out after the fire. Grace said they still need help with donations of dog and cat food, and kitty litter.

"Everything is coming along, so much better than we ever dreamed of," Grace said. "We have to thank everyone in the community for their support, and in surrounding counties of Todd and Trigg."
