Animal shelter looking for fans to keep pets cool

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- A Cedar Rapids animal shelter is asking for help keeping its dogs and cats cool in this heat wave. The Last Hope Animal Rescue says its air conditioner is having trouble keeping up, and the building is getting too warm.

The shelter is asking for oscillating fans. People interested can take fans to the shelter, which is at 1823 16th Avenue southwest, or send a Facebook message to the shelter, and workers will schedule a time to meet up.
