Boca Raton: City funds will help animal shelter repair Irma damage

The Tri-County Humane Society will receive a $104,000 city grant to help with repairs and reconstruction to buildings damaged by Hurricane Irma.

The City Council in February unanimously agreed to provide the no-kill animal shelter with the funds. The shelter sustained significant damage Sept. 10 when a large tree fell on the facility’s isolation building during the storm. The building housed about 40 dogs and cats with contagious diseases.

The 2,400-square-foot building was too severely damaged to continue to use.
