Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue in York, South Carolina, was destroyed in a massive fire. They describe it as a ‘total loss fire’ and the picture below tells the story dramatically.
Five dogs died in the fire and forty were rescued. The dogs have been relocated. Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue have confirmed what Friends of Feral Felines have said on Facebook that the feral cats are still on the site. It is believed 50 cats are there. They need help as does Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue.
I believe they weren’t directly affected by the fire because ‘they were housed in the far end of the barn least affected by the fire and they were in an area where they can run freely on our property as well’ (Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue).
Friends of Feral Felines say that:
‘Funds are desperately needed to continue to provide for them. If you love feral cats, please consider making a donation to help. To donate go to
https://www.chapmansdox.com/donate. Note on any donation that the funds are for the feral cat colony. Or just donate to help both cats and dogs. Thanks’.
