During the intensely hot summer months, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Animals at Rescue the Animals, SPCA are dealing with just that after one of two air conditioners broke Wednesday.
"We do pretty good in the morning but when it gets up in the afternoon, boom! We have real problems," Paul Washburn with Rescue the Animals said.
Washburn said replacing the broken unit will not be easy on their pocket book.
"We're probably looking at about $3000 to replace the unit. Maybe a little bit more because it's a heating and air conditioning unit both," he said. "That's on top of the expenses we've had with over 30 horses this summer and a huge intake of animals out at the pound."
In June, Rescue the Animals took in 19 abandoned horses from Ranger. Those horses have all been adopted now but, just last week, they picked up eight other horses. They're working on getting all of those horses adopted but are already expecting another sixteen horses by the end of the month.
"We've had an expensive summer and we're beginning to hurt a little bit," Washburn said. "We're hoping there's somebody out there that might help us out."
Washburn told KTXS Thursday afternoon the official estimate to replace the air conditioner is higher than he initially expected at $4,700.
