By  | 

MARTIN COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - The Martin County Animal Shelter is receiving help after their property flooded over the weekend. Inmates from the Little Sandy Correctional Complex will be volunteering through the end of the week.

Organizers say inmates are laying sawdust and hay to absorb water. They will also be working to repair the cat building on the property.

Cyndie McGinnis, a volunteer, says she very thankful for their help.

"We are extremely thankful," McGinnis said. "We didn't even know they were coming. They just showed up yesterday ... they jumped in. They just made it so much better of a day for us."

If you would like to volunteer at the animal shelter call 606-791-2902.
