Storm blows roofs off kennels, donations needed at animal rescue

WARRENTON, Mo. – No time to spare animal rescue and shelter in Warrenton, Missouri is asking for donations after their facility was damaged in Thursday night’s storm.

The storm damaged the tin kennels outside and the fencing on the property. The tin outdoor kennels all have roofs, but the storm blew many of the roofs off the kennels.

All farm animals live outside the rescue, along with larger dog breeds. The smaller dog breeds live indoors.

Volunteer Julie Brandon said No Time To Spare needs tin siding, wood, monetary donations, a generator, and anyone with handyman knowledge or experience.

“It’s going to take a lot of time/money/manpower to get everything back to normal. Any help is greatly appreciated,” the shelter wrote on Facebook.

At 1:00 p.m. Friday, the indoor facility was without power, meaning the smaller dogs living indoors have now been moved outside due to the lack of air conditioning. Brandon said No Time To Spare uses a generator to power a huge fan in the hopes it will bring some relief to the dogs that go inside. The volunteers are hoping someone can donate or borrow another generator to get the air conditioning working while they wait for power to come back on.

The storm started at about 5:45 p.m. Thursday at which time the rescue was burning leaves on the property. Brandon said the wind from the storm spread the fire a bit, but a short time later, the rain began to fall, extinguishing the flames.

Right now the rescue isn’t looking for emergency foster parents, but Brandon said if anyone wants to adopt a pet, now would be a great time.

No Time To Spare focuses on helping farm animals and dogs. Their operation is 100 percent donation-based and helps 300 to 400 dogs a year.
