Bridge Home No Kill Animal Shelter’s new building comes w/ financial challenges


SULLIVAN COUNTY – Bridge Home No Kill Animal Shelter moved into a brand new building a few months ago.

But the new building is adding some financial problems to the regions only no kill animal shelter.

Now, Bridge Home leaders are trying to raise money to pay all the bills.

Bridge Home Director Regina Isenberg told News Channel 11, the shelter used to be located inside of an old gas station and it took several years, donations, and a loan to build a new facility.

Isenberg said she was able to get a $400,000 mortgage for the new shelter, which breaks down to a payment of about $3,000 dollar a month.

But Isenberg said that payment, along with thousands of dollars in operating cost are making it hard to make ends meet month to month.

Shelter leaders are trying to come up with a long term fundraising plan in order to keep paying the bills.

So far the shelter hosts rummage sales, they are selling Christmas tree ornaments, and they are also collecting aluminum cans.

Isenberg said they welcome any other fundraiser ideas.Copyright 2015 WJHL. All rights reserved.
