'Desperately need a new building:' Woof Gang Rescue in Racine asking for help

NOW: ’Desperately need a new building:’ Woof Gang Rescue in Racine asking for help

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) – Woof Gang Rescue in Racine is asking for the public’s help in raising money to relocate. The group says it needs to get out of its current building as soon as possible.

According to the executive director, Woof Gang rescues around 1,200 dogs every year. The rescue is looking to move because they say there have been several issues and repairs with the building that need to be fixed and haven’t. They say there are issues with mold and the roof.

Although they are still doing adoptions, Woof Gang Rescue recently closed its doors to the public.

"We cannot physically be here anymore, it’s just not safe for us or for our dogs," Executive Director Jodie Hoffmann-Ruffalo said. "The problem is we need a building with a pretty good amount of square footage because we’ve got dog food donations, we’ve got crates, we’ve got supplies and that takes up a lot of room."

The group found a building they are interested in, but need financial help. A GoFundMe page was set up to help.
