of the building. The fire was quickly extinguished but water from the sprinkler system caused extensive damage to the building.
Water caused damage to the third floor and the space occupied by Animalkind. Animalkind is a non-profit 501(c)(3)
organization, dedicated to the non-proliferation of unwanted felines through TNR (trap/neuter/return) and low cost spay/neuter
Some 150 cats call this home. The free roaming cats had to be rounded up by volunteers Wednesday
morning. Organizers say its an "emergency". They need homes for the cats and money to help find a temporary building for the felines.
