67 dogs and cats dead at our local Humane Society, need some DU help!

http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-03-16/beaumont-texas-animal-shelter-fire-kills-67-dogs

I posted about our client's $100,000.00 donation which was negotiated as part of her settlement with DuPont for the death of her mother, a huge animal lover/rescuer at the end of February.

Here is their website as well.

As you can see at the link above, a fire happened last night caused by a faulty dryer. Almost all of the shelter's animals were killed. Their immediate need for space, kennels, etc., is dire and their Board is meeting tonight to come up with a plan. They tell me money is what they need most as locals are dropping off food and supplies and they are running out of storage. With all of the flooding recently in this area they expect a lot more animals coming soon. I-10 is closed nearby due to the flooding as we received 15-20 inches of rain less than a week ago with more on the way the next couple of days

The new facility already has land donated, but not all of the money raised. Ground has not yet been broken on the new facility. What is coming in now is for immediate needs. They are truly at a loss right now and in shock. I just left there and the picture of all of the crying volunteers who knew these animals by name will be hard to get out of my head.

Any help you can give would be much appreciated!
