Several exotic animals in Apopka are in need of help after Hurricane Irma.
The hurricane knocked down trees, power lines and caused other debris at The CARE Foundation along West Ponkan Road in Apopka.
The animals were not hurt, but the non-profit is unable to offer tours or educational shows, so it is unable to raise money for the facility or cleanup efforts. The CARE Foundation is accepting donations for their cleanup efforts and care of the exotic animals.
Officials told Eyewitness News that they worry they might not be able to let the animals out of their cages because of contaminated water.
The CARE Foundation has 200 animals, including pigs, fox, tigers, bears and more.
The cages are locked and officials said they’re not concerned about the cages getting open.
Crews are using drones to assess the damage at the facility.
