MARION, Pa. - The Greener Pastures No-Kill Animal Shelter next to the Conococheague Creek probably will need to move to greener pastures - or to higher ground - after being flooded for the fifth time since it started in 2000, its director and founder said Saturday.
Saturday's flooding is by far the worst as it destroyed barns, which floated away, and forced the relocation of some of its animals, Samantha Frey said.
Three shelter animals died when the 10-acre property was flooded in January.
The shelter is at 924 Social Island Road in Marion, Pa., about four miles from U.S. 11, Frey said.
On Saturday, while a historic bridge nearby was on the verge of collapsing and some cars appeared to be floating away, Frey's focus was on finding temporary homes for 40 of the shelter's animals, including cows, horses, pigs, goats and donkeys, she said.
