GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Community donations are helping to keep dozens of dogs at a Green Bay animal shelter from the dangerous cold weather.
On Friday, Robinson Heating and Cooling installed a temporary fix to Bay Area Humane Society's broken heat exchanger. The day before, that exchanger broke and is estimated to take weeks to replace. That forced the temperature in the main kennel to drop.
Also, the owners of Sidelines Sports Bar donated $3,000 Friday toward the cost of replacing the exchanger.
"We were blessed with another Packer game, so might as well give little bit back," Sidelines Sports Bar owner Kevin Burkel told FOX 11.
Officials with the shelter say they can't thank the community enough for donations that included hundreds of blankets. Among the blanket donations were 200 Friday morning from St. Vincent Hospital.
