GEORGETOWN, Del.- Contrary to rumors floating around town and on the Internet, the Safe Haven No-Kill Animal Sanctuary will remain open, at least for now.

Safe Haven Interim Director Cindy Woods says she has heard the speculation the shelter is closing for good on Friday, but says there are no immediate plans for closure.

However, Woods did say the sanctuary is in a dire financial situation and may be forced to close in the near future if Safe Haven, a non-profit organization, doesn't receive more donations from the public.

"It's always a struggle, month to month," said Woods. "We definitely welcome any assistance and help and would love for the public to come out."

Woods assures the 220 dogs and cats at the shelter would receive homes in the event of a sudden closure, however, Sussex County would lose its only no-kill animal sanctuary.
