LA VERGNE, Tenn. (WSMV) – The Big Fluffy Dog Rescue has asked the community for help during this week’s heat wave.
BFGR posted a photo of their air conditioning on Facebook showing nearly 90 degrees at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. They said in the post that only the five-tonne unit works, but that’s not enough to keep their building cool when it’s over 100 degrees.
Rescue officials said the problem was not the air conditioning units as they had repaired all units in the building. Instead, the main problem they identified was related to electricity. They said on Facebook that another panel was needed to separate the circuits because the electrical panels were overloaded and the operation of the four-ton unit was blowing the circuit.
BFDR is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping giant mixed breed dogs in need. Their residents come to the rescue for many different reasons. Some reasons include being abandoned in killing shacks, being handed over by owners who could not properly care for them, hoarding of crates, and others being livestock watchdogs who failed.
The Rescue is seeking over $5,000 to repair electrical work done by one of the building’s previous owners, who allegedly failed to properly adhere to electrical safety.
