HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Donations are beginning to come in to Southern Pines Animal Shelter, one day after administrators and staff said they needed help to repair a major landslide that is threatening a foundation of a main building. 

James Moore, vice-president of the Board of Directors for Southern Pines Animal Shelter, said a local businessman donated $2,000. SPAS also has access to an emergency grant of $5,000 from the Humane Society of the United States.  

The money will be used to make repairs to an area behind a building that houses dog runs, treatment rooms, a laundry room and a supply area.      

Several weeks ago, heavy rains caused a landslide that wiped out a dog walking trail.  Administrators and staff said further erosion could damage a concrete foundation or plumbing, which could shut down the facility for awhile.  

Moore said board members are meeting with engineers and said a decision will be made next week to make temporary repairs, or build a permanent and more expensive retaining wall.
