Safe Harbor 'endanger' of closing

JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - A local animal shelter, in the middle of mini puppy boom, is struggling to keep their doors open.

Between just two mothers, there are 16 puppies. Safe Harbor saved the two pregnant dogs from being put to sleep. Now, it's the no kill shelter that needs to be saved.

With more people unable to pay for their pet's medical bills and donations down 75 percent, Kay-Lynette Roca fears the shelter may have to close. "We have finally hit rock bottom financially. This recession has put us in a situation unlike anything we have experienced in the past 24 years."

Roca says Safe Harbor needs $3 million a year to stay open. If you would like to make a donation, call 561-747-5311 or go to their Web site at
