FREMONT, Neb. (KMTV) -- — A Fremont animal shelter is still hard at work meeting the big need for flood victims.

Furever Home Inc. says at the peak of the flooding they were housing 170 dogs at three locations. Most of them came from owners who were forced out of their homes or can't go back because the houses were badly damaged.

They still have about 70 dogs at the shelter and at foster homes. The need hasn't gone away completely.

"Most of the dogs that we have now are the owners who their homes were red tagged and it will be indefinite as to whether they get back in that home or find a different home,” said Deb George, Founder of Furever Home Inc. "Some of the owners that are still surrendering dogs to us asking us to take care of the dogs their homes are getting bulldozed."

George founded Furever Home Inc. in 2016 and says she's grateful she did because she doesn't know where the dogs would be without the shelter.

They’re also having spay and neuter services performed with the owner’s consent and vaccinating the animals for free.

They do need help with monetary donations for vaccinations and laundry services because they’ve spent about $8,000 for vaccinations. You can still donate old towels, toys, cat food, and cat litter. Volunteers are also needed for shifts at 7am, 11am, and 7pm.

Furever Home Inc. has a Pet Pantry every Saturday from 9am-2pm at 1750 Miramar Circle.
