A tight knit group of volunteers is looking for answers and help after fire devastated the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter and killed three dozen pets.

"It's basically like walking up to a family's house and seeing it burned down," said volunteer Brandi White.

Thirty-four cats, at least one dog, and a guinea pig all died inside the shelter late Friday night.

White, who volunteers at the shelter nearly every day, said she came running when she heard the news. She said she was worried for all of the animals but especially for Bugsy, an older basset hound.
