Walden’s Puddle held a memorial service Monday to honor the animals that died in a fire earlier this summer.

The June fire, which sparked in a laundry room, claimed the lives of 75 animals that were in the care of the non-profit organization located in Joelton.

The laundry room was destroyed and the rest of the building suffered heavy smoke damage.

The center said they plan rebuild the laundry room in a detached building away from the animals, but repairs will cost approximately $5,000.

Walden’s Puddle is the only professionally staffed wildlife rehab facility in Middle Tennessee. The organization operates solely on donations.
