Donations from businesses and physical labor from volunteers helped in making repairs, buying paint and covering the cost of replacing damaged dog beds, food and animal toys, according to shelter manager Shelley Greenglass.
"We're inviting a lot of the volunteers who helped out with repairing, and we're hoping a lot of those volunteers will be there and get to meet the public and show some tours," she said.
She said she didn't know the estimated amount of the damage.
Staff cared for about 40 cats who remained at the shelter while it was closed.
They included Hefty, an Anatolian shepherd mix hit by a falling ceiling tile. A Massachusetts family adopted him.
