MAYFIELD, Ky. (KFVS) - Rescue Rebuild, a shelter renovation program of Greater Good Charities, received funding from the IDEXX Foundation to help repair the Mayfield-Graves County Animal Shelter that was damaged by the tornadoes last December.

The renovation is part of Greater Good Charities’ ongoing commitment to the people and pets of Mayfield impacted by the disaster.

Greater Good Charities’ Rescue Rebuild team, along with local volunteers and a support crew from Nashville Humane Association, repaired the 250-foot outside fencing at Mayfield Graves County Animal Shelter that was struck by trees during the tornadoes.

Additionally, they renovated the cat rooms by adding enrichments like wall mounts, shelves, and stairs to help increase the well-being of resident felines.
