After rescuing more than 70 dogs from one home last week, now more than ever, Bridge Home No Kill Animal Rescue Volunteer said they need more space.

Soon they will have it, when Bridge Home moves into a brand new building in a few weeks.

“We’ve been keeping the dogs in a service station where we rent, and the rent’s quite expensive,” said Volunteer Linda Gyurcsak.

For 15 years, Bridge Home officials have been working towards a new shelter.

“We do a lot fundraising. We do golf tournaments, rummage sales, a variety of things,” said Bridge Home No Kill Animal Rescue Regina Isenberg.

Isenberg told News Channel 11, funding was the biggest challenge and is still a problem that looms over the project.

But Isenberg said, donations don’t have to come in the monetary form.

“There are two kind of people, some people have time others have money, put them together and that’s what we’re doing,” said Isenberg.

Isenberg said the rescue still needs volunteers and money. Isenberg said, if all goes well, the rescue will move into the new shelter in mid-April.
