RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – The Humane Society of Raleigh County asks for volunteers to help clean up an old barn.
Years ago, the barn served as a place for farm animals in case the shelter needed to take them in. After being neglected for a while, the barn has minor roof damage and vegetation has taken over. Now, the shelter wants to clean it up to make sure it’s ready for any potential residents.
“It’s very rare that we have a large animal but we do need to be prepared in case,” said HSRC board of directors secretary Debra Berry. “We do have a small barn area that’s located inside our shelter, but we are in desperate need of storage. If we can get this cleaned up and fixed so that we can use it, then we’re going to make the inside area a storage area.”
The cleanup is August 22 from 8 a.m. to noon. Minors are required to bring a parent and anyone with tools that may be helpful such as gloves or shovels is asked to bring those as well.
