A dog shelter’s call for help on social media after a power outage led to dozens of people in the community showing up with ice cream in their hands.
The Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center in Columbus, Ohio lost power on Tuesday and created a Facebook post asking the community to bring ice.
“We need your help. Electricity is here at the shelter, and our puppies need ice to stay cool in this scorching heat!” the post read.
Soon after, dozens of people from the community brought them hundreds of bags of ice.
“We now have the certainty that our shelter puppies will be cool tonight, under the supervision of our night staff. Thank you all!” the shelter said in an updated post.
On Wednesday morning, the shelter said power had been restored.

“Yesterday we were truly inspired by the lineup of cars from selfless dog lovers willing to donate for the welfare of the dogs at the shelter,” the post said.
