One Dothan resident has stepped in to help.
Elsie Campbell has started a program called "red retrievers."
She is trying to get 200-people to donate 100 dollars, to fund an air conditioning system that will cost around 20-thousand dollars.
"When I say life and death, I literally do mean life and death. When you see them panting and laying there listless, and then people come into adopt and go what’s wrong with that one." Program Coordinator Elsie Campbell said.
Getting an A-C unit in the shelter may help raise adoption numbers.
Right now Campbell says they have collected more than 16-thousand dollars, but still need another 4-thousand to reach goal.
Anyone who donates will receive a tax-deduction receipt.
