The Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter became an island home to cats and dogs Monday evening.
“The cats and dogs are dry,” Animal Control Officer Allen Fryman said Tuesday morning from the shelter on New Lair Road.
The 20 cats and 40 dogs were transported to the Double M Dixie tobacco warehouse Sunday afternoon as a precautionary measure, Fryman said.
Fryman said the transfer of animals was assisted by numerous volunteers and the Lexington Humane Society, who brought 40 cages to hold the animals at the warehouse.
