The Lexington Humane Society has a new trailer that will provide temporary shelters for pets during a community emergency. The trailer, unveiled Monday, has individual cages for 40 small and medium-size pets. It has a generator to power heating and air conditioning, and it has an onboard water supply, a sink and a wastewater holding tank. Ashley Hammond, development manager at the Humane Society, said it received the trailer and two cargo trailers recently. The Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program donated the shelter trailer, the American Kennel Club donated one cargo trailer, and the city's Division of Emergency Management and Lexington-Fayette Animal Care and Control contributed the third.
The Humane Society also plans to use the shelter trailer for large adoption events.
