Rain is on its way. The forecast is calling for heavy rains this weekend as well as next week. This is unwelcoming news for the Humane Society of the North Bay (HSNB), whose sump pump recently gave out, increasing the chance of flooding on the shelter's grounds. HSNB is working to help protect its dog kennels, and they will need extra help from the community.
HSNB is seeking volunteers to come to the shelter today between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. to fill and place sandbags at the shelter. Volunteers to drive trucks to transport the sandbags from the Vallejo Sanitation and Flood Control, located at 450 Ryder St., are also being sought.
HSNB is located at 1121 Sonoma Blvd. For more information, call the shelter at 645-7905.
