Tempe animal shelter closing, needs homes for animals
PHOENIX — An animal shelter in Tempe, Arizona, doesn’t have enough funds to keep going and will be closing at the end of the month.
Ohana Animal Rescue said on its Facebook page that they have “been running in the red for a great time and can no longer sustain shelter operations.”
The shelter has until Friday before they will be forced to close the doors for good.
On the shelter’s initial post June 2, they said they needed homes for 40 cats and dogs, but as of Saturday, only nine dogs are left. Adoptions are $100 and require a home check.
“Due to tragic circumstances, the directors have stepped back and the Ohana volunteers are taking on the responsibility of getting these animals to safe placement,” their Facebook page read.
They have helped nearly 4,000 animals find homes since it opened.
