DARLINGTON, Pa. (WKBN) — Local businesses outside of East Palestine are finding ways to help residents who have been evacuated.

The Northern Boarder Kennels in Darlington is just outside the evacuation zone. They’re offering free boarding to families who had to evacuate and couldn’t bring their dogs.

“They don’t have to worry about their dogs when they’re worried about everything else in the world,” said owner Katie Schwarzwaelder.

As of Sunday night, the kennel is no longer able to take in any more animals, according to a social media post.

They’ll keep the dogs until the evacuation order is lifted.
