"Its so sad that they are not comfortable."
Because for a week now the air conditioning and half of the so fur fine building at the humane society of greater Miami has been on the fritz.
"Everyday its been getting worse and worse and now the ac system is completely not working."
So workers moved dozens of dogs and cats to the other side of the building where the ac is working. The rest, mostly cats, live with fans, a temporary ac unit, even sheets covering the windows to keep out the sun.
"Temperatures this morning were close to 90 degrees as the sun is moving its down to barely tolerable 85 but its really unsafe for the animals."
Workers say the rental units are costing thousands of dollars and a new system will cost 85 thousand dollars.
"This is a long process. this could take 3 to 4 weeks."
The humane society is also looking for a few people who might be able to take in a few cats temporarily just to get them out of this situation. This cat making his escape from his cage is no big deal today.
The area is open so the air can circulate, but in the quarantine room where the dogs are held for medical reasons, large cabinets keep the animals in but allow the door to stay propped open.
"So we really need some help and we need it now."
