Did you know it snows in Kentucky? Not like Wisconsin, and the temperatures aren’t nearly as extreme, but for a stray dog, it’s cold. There’s also the issue of hunger, possibly being attacked by other dogs, unwanted pregnancies due to no spaying or neuter surgeries, and more.
The Kentucky River Regional Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization founded by community members in four counties with a combined population of 160,000. Since the beginning their mission has been to provide services to safeguard public health and safety, to humanely house and care for the animals in its charge, to protect the animals of the community from abuse and neglect, and to provide its citizens with information and education concerning responsible pet ownership.
What does this have to do to with snow and our dogs up here? Well, if you adopted a dog from NEW PAWSibilities your dog most likely came from Kentucky. And you know what? The need is never-ending. We partner with this amazing organization to rescue dogs down South and bring them here for adoption.
As you are enjoying time with your dog today on this forced day off, or if you are thinking about getting a dog, remember the more dogs we move from our facility to your homes the more space we have to rescue dogs who desperately need homes.
Thank you for passing the word on about NEW PAWSibilities, for volunteering, donating, being part of our incredible community. Everything you do helps us help them. And isn’t that what matters?
