LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Lexington Humane Society has reached its goal of raising $35,000 for a new air-conditioning unit for its dog kennels.

The center set up a donations pages on Monday, and hours later, more than $20,000 was collected. Less than 24 hours after creating the donations page, more than $35,000 had been raised.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (https://bit.ly/1KasMa4) Fayette Heating & Air Conditioning is covering $10,000 of the cost of replacing the 20-ton unit that failed.

A spokeswoman at the Lexington Humane Society says workers are there around the clock checking on the dogs every few minutes.

She says there is a six-week turnaround once the order for the new unit is placed. In the meantime, Big Ass Fans lent seven fans so the facility could cool down the dogs and keep the floors dry, allowing the adoption center to remain open.
