The Pratt County Humane Society is asking for more donations and more help.

Jan Peters, a Wichitan who has been coordinating volunteers and donation collection, said animals will be moved to Pratt tomorrow and that the shelter needs a place to keep the cats.

She said volunteer electricians, plumbers and carpenters are needed to build the cat space. Also, 10 volunteers are needed to help with the move from Greensburg to Pratt tomorrow, she said.

Among the items the shelter is requesting:

 Eight large igloo-style dog shelters

 40 five-gallon buckets

 Cat litter boxes

 Cat litter

 Cleaning supplies, including paper towels and trash bags.

Peters said she'll be coordinating drop-off locations somewhere in Wichita but would like people to call her before they donate to make sure there aren't duplicate donations.

To volunteer or donate, call Peters at 316-871-9892.
