Power Restored To Orange County Animal Shelter

Posted December 13, 2002 2:45 a.m. EST

— An Orange County Animal Shelter is up and running again after days without power due to last week's ice storm.

Generators kept a few kennels warm, but dozens were cold and dark.

Shelter officials said they lost about $6,000 in vaccines and medications.

Foster parents cared for nearly 150 animals until the electricity came back, but now the shelter hopes to find those pets permanent homes.

An adopt-a-thon will be held at the shelter this weekend.
