Baltimore Humane Society dog kennels damaged by the rains

The Baltimore Humane Society is issuing a community-wide plea for $20,000 to help keep its adoptable pooches comfy and cozy.

The record-setting rains in July — 15.43 inches so far with more in the forecast — have damaged the roofs of the only two dog kennels at the Reisterstown facility, the society announced in a news release issued Thursday.

“The two dog kennels are the only kennels on the premises,” the release said. “All the dogs are still housed in them and being kept safe and dry, but will be a difficult situation with any subsequent rain.”

The nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter depends on community support because it receives no operating funds from the government or national animal welfare groups. It is seeking donations from the public “no matter how small,” the release said, to repair the two flat-roof kennels.

Donations can be made online at or by calling 410-833-8848 ext. 212.
