    Windy Weather Damages Animal Shelter
    Sadie Mae Foundation

    Sunday’s windy weather left a Bolton animal shelter damaged after a large tree branch came crashing down onto their play area.

    Volunteers at the Sadie Mae Foundation Animal Rescue League Inc. say several volunteers and dogs were outside at their shelter in Bolton when wind knocked the large branch into their fenced outdoor play area. No one was hurt and the actual building was not damaged, but with more windy weather in the forecast they decided to put the dogs in foster homes as a precaution.

    The foundation says they do have insurance and are waiting for the company to assess the damage. They expect the dogs can come home to the shelter in the next few days.

    Volunteers say as the news spread the foundation received an outpouring of support and they are thankful.

    The Sadie Mae Foundation is a non-profit (501c3) rescue organization run primarily off donations. They can always use dog treats, toys or other items. For more information on how to donate or adoptions check out the organization's website or Facebook page.
