Dog shelter


   To the Editor,
   After hearing more about the situation at the Madras Animal Shelter, I understand they are trying to raise funds to build a pole building to enclose those outdoor kennels and be able to heat it. That would be such a good thing and I hope we can work towards raising the funding to do so.
   The people working there are doing such a good job with what they have, but there are limits due to the lack of funds. It gets cold here and all those outdoor kennels leave the animals too cold.
   People have heard and are working to bring blankets to them to help now. They also could use more food for the puppies and dogs. Some new igloo houses are on order soon as they are the type needed in order to be able to sanitize them.
   Thanks to all those working so hard to help those little ones.
