Humane Society Damaged by Flooding, You Can Help
The Beaver County Humane Society could use your help as they recover from a pipe break that flooded their shelter in Aliquippa.
Volunteers, staff and restoration crews are hard at work cleaning up damaged, caused by a water pipe break at the Beaver County Humane Society in Aliquippa. The shelter is closed today.
A pipe in the shelter's sprinkler system froze and burst last night, sending thousands of gallons of water flooding into the shelter's retail store. "It ran for about a half an hour before we could get it shut off," shelter spokesman Mike Romigh told KDKA-TV .
The water soaked the insulation and brought down part of the drop ceiling in the shop, ruining most of the merchandise, and destroying the shelter's cash register and credit card machine, according to WPXI-TV .
The good news? All of the animals are just fine. The Humane Society isn't sure when the shelter will re-open, but say they'll post that information on their Facebook page as soon as they know.
