A portion of the Lynn County Animal Shelter was destroyed by fire Wednesday night.  The cat storage area burned down, along with the animal prep rooms. Seven cats were killed in the fire but the dogs at the shelter were unharmed.

The Tahoka Volunteer Fire Department tells KFYO News the State Fire Marshal has been called in to investigate and determine a cause for the fire.  The dogs that were being housed at the shelter have been sent to ‘foster homes’ in the area.  The Lynn County Animal Shelter is accepting donations as they try to rebuild, and replace the supplies they lost in the fire.   Donations can be made online at: https://squareup.com/market/lynn-county-animal-services
