The Humane Society of Carteret County failed a state inspection. The state inspector gave the shelter 45 days to start making changes. Rusted cages and doors , a leaking roof and peeling paint are just some things they have to fix. So far, they've started cleaning up things and replacing some items. Donations have been pouring in but officials say work still needs to be done
"Word of mouth gets out people start trying to come out and help you know, and that's all it takes you know just some community involvement," said shelter manager Candace Christopherson.
The inspector will do another walk through March 25th. You can drop off donations at the shelter. Officials say plans are to get as much done this weekend as they can.
