Update 1-27-14: The Clinton Humane Society reports it has received a generous donation to get the heat back on at the shelter. Schebler Heating of Bettendorf is donating a furnace to the shelter. The unit will be installed this week. The shelter director Sandi Bartels says anyone who donated toward a furnace can get their money back, or it will be rolled over into an emergency fund.

Original 1-24-14:

The Clinton Humane Society is struggling to heat its building during these extremely cold days. The shelter hasn't had heat since Tuesday. The employees use space heaters during the day but turn them off at night to avoid fire hazards, which in turn, leaves the pets to deal with the cold. Sandi Bartels with the humane society says the cost of a replacement unit could cost the up to $11,000. 

In the meantime, an employee lives above the building and comes down throughout the night to heat blankets for the animals every few hours.  Employees are worried about how they will pay for the new system .  They say the extra cats that have been brought in have used up their donations.

 "If we had the funds, it wouldn't be an issue, but we've had the hoarding situations which have really wiped out finds we had up here," said Sandi Bartels with the Clinton County Humane Society.

The doors of the humane society will remain shut to the public until their able to get a replacement unit. 

If you'd like to donate they have an account set up at Gateway State bank or you can click the link below and donate with PayPal.
