LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Flooding from last week’s storms damaged the buildings and grounds at Eden, a no-kill animal sanctuary in eastern Kentucky.

Randy Skaggs, operator of Eden in Elliott County, tells the Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/1I5HpFl ) that high water pushed a building under construction off its foundation. He says the storm caused thousands of dollars of damage to the structure that will house a clinic, apartment and offices.

Skaggs says high winds knocked down several trees and branches along the property, and flooding exposed wiring on the grounds and damaged walking bridges. Skaggs fears it could cost up to $25,000 to fix the damage, but repair estimates haven’t been made. He says the property was not insured.

No animals were harmed during the flooding.

The sanctuary is home to more than 250 dogs, cats and chickens.
