REDMOND, OR -- Redmond’s Brightside Animal Center is asking for help to cool down the shelter. Executive Director Taylor Campbell tells KBND News kennels are full of animals dealing with the hot and smoky weather, “Brightside is in great need of some industrial fans to help cool down our dog kennel area as well as if people are willing to foster. If you have AC in your home, or a nice cool home that you can take a dog for a long weekend or a week and help them kind of cool down.”
Campbells says the shelter can help a home get ready for fostering, “We're willing to send you home with the supplies needed. Make the perfect match for that animal just to be able to provide them a more comfortable space while we're dealing with this time right now.”
They’ll also take gift cards to local pet stores to fulfill ever-changing summer needs. “Industrial fans would be a great need to help us cool down those areas and keep them comfortable. Frozen treats, Kongs, things like that, that we can fill with bone broth or peanut butter. Those types of things to give them a nice cool treat are things that we are in great need of,” says Campbell.
Industrial Fans can be dropped off at the Brightside center on 1355 NE Hemlock in Redmond, or the thrift store on 838 NW 5th street.
The shelter can also pick up fans if necessary.
