Jacksonville Humane Society Burns Down

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My mom called me this morning to tell me that our Humane Society at home burned down almost entirely this morning. The news reports said that all but 2 dogs were rescued but most cats did not make it alive. JHS is a huge facility, with sometimes over 100 cats at a time in two seperate catteries. It's a sad day for cat lovers I posted the link below to the news story.

That's horrible. RIP, little babies, I'm so sorry you had to meet such a horrendous fate. I hope there are enough donations to rebuild ASAP.

No, I'm not going to read it either... I just dearly hope they all passed in their sleep from the smoke.

No, they don't know now how the fire started. They are still investigating. The dog run is behind the main building, but the cattery is right down the hallway from the front desk. Apparently the fire was in the main building.

Oh what a horrible thing to happen! I can't even imagine their terror and pain. I cannot open the link, either, since I would just cry uncontrollably. May they all be running happily over the rainbow bridge - now, excuse me while i go and wipe the tears from my face.

No offense intended, but I am leary to even click on the website. Your only 2 posts are about this. You probably are a well meaning catlover. Maybe you work there and joined TCS because you're so upset about this. We just don't know you yet.

I'm feeling the same way.
