Greenville County Animal Care Services is in need of blankets for their large dog kennels, their Facebook page reported January 6.
The Greenville shelter posted the following statement asking the public for help in keeping the dogs in their care warm
"WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF lots of BLANKETS FOR OUR LARGE DOG KENNELS FOR TONIGHT AND TOMORROW NIGHT AS THE TEMP WILL DROP BELOW 20 DEGREES. Our facility is heated, but they need all the help they can get to stay warm!"
According to Fox Carolina News, temperatures will dip to dangerous levels tonight and on Tuesday, due to arctic air moving into upstate South Carolina.
The shelter has also had a lot of kittens come in recently, increasing the demand for kitten replacement milk and baby blankets. Greenville County Animal Care Services is also in need of canned dog and cat food.
Anyone with supplies can drop them off at the shelter, located at 328 Furman Hall Road. The shelter will be open until 7p.m. tonight.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
