PARAGOULD, Ark. (AP) - The director of a northeast Arkansas animal shelter says the operation could close without community donations.

Animal Farm Director Brenda Ramthun tells the Jonesboro Sun (https://bit.ly/1JqdLkt ) that the no-kill shelter opened in 2000 has about 30 days to collect an unspecified amount of money. She says it costs about $1,000 each month to feed the dogs at the Paragould shelter, which houses about 100 animals total.

Ramthun says the shelter is accepting food, cash and other donations.
