King's Harvest Ministries is known for helping the poor and homeless but for six months now they've been taking in animals too.

This pet shelter is unlike many others in our area because they're a no-kill animal shelter.

Local 4 News was there on opening day months ago and there were dozens people celebrating this no kill animal shelter.

Now more than six months later the pet shelter is feeling a financial pinch.

They say there's been plenty of adoptions since they opened their doors but the number of animals coming in needing help is outweighing the numbers who find a home.
From medicals bills to supplies,the director of the King's Harvest Pet Rescue says they're struggling financially and sometimes it's tough just keeping the lights on.
The hot summer weather isn't helping.
She says the pet shelter needs air conditioning to keep the dogs cool.

“Currently we don't have air condition in our lower level and that's where our dogs are it is cooler because its the lower level but we really are going to put air conditioning in. It's very humid and muggy and we want them to be comfortable too but that's a huge expense unless somebody helps us out with that, we can't do it,” said  Terri Gleize, director of King's Harvest Pet Rescue.

Gleize says this AC will help the dogs keep cool especially during the hot days we've had.
While they may be a little hot right now, the shelter says it's a better alternative than euthanizing the pets.
