While recovery is a long process, thanks to a loan from a neighbor, the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter can now take in strays. 

What you notice the most is absence.  Absence of pets, and absence of noise. 

A dog named Bugsy survived the fire, but 35 of his friends died.

"I saw him coming down out of the woods, whenever he saw this, and pretty much decided he's been through enough, and he's staying with me," said Brandi White, Bugsy's new owner.

Out of all the rubble, hope pokes its head out the window. 

The fire destroyed the shelter, and the only recognizable things are a few plastic dogs. 

"This is a disaster, but the only thing we know to do is to turn this into the best thing that we can, find the silver linings," said Theresa Martin, a volunteer at the shelter.

Borrowing from a neighbor, Knox-Whitley received an emergency shelter.

It can now accept strays, and Martin promises the shelter will return as dog's best friend.
