ARDMORE, Oklahoma (KXII) – Throughout the pandemic, the Ardmore animal shelter has sold out, and with more mouths to feed and clean up after their resources have been depleted. But, when they asked for help, a local non-profit organization came up with much needed help.
During the pandemic, some people sought the company of new pets to change their minds soon after.
Ardmore Animal Shelter is crowded according to admissions specialist Laci Norman.
âWe have exceeded our capacity recently and are working to bring those numbers down,â Norman said.
More animals means more food to feed them.
The local nonprofit, the Kindness Revolution led by Danielle Neble, decided to reach out to their followers to try and help cover the costs.
âPeople saw our posts and they came to us and told us we would love to help whatever we can do,â Neble said.
Donations started pouring in.
The shelter received cleaning supplies, towels and blankets.
But the biggest contribution came in the form of dog food … a literal ton.
âWe thought we were going to take out 10 to 15 bags of dog food, we had no idea we were going to end up with more than a ton of food,â Neble said.
Norman says this donation will allow them to feed these dogs for months.
âIt is expensive to feed the animals and take good care of them,â said Neble. “So we were happy to have been able to access our Facebook account and ask for volunteers and help and people immediately took action.”
You can find more information on how to help or donate on the Ardmore Animal Shelter website.
