Disaster Relief

A **HUGE** thank you to our amazing community!

We sent 66 animals out to foster in 2 days due to your amazing response to this rescue effort. We do still have several cats/kittens in need of foster. And some extremely adorable puppies with special needs. Click here for more info.

We are heading back to Eastern Kentucky to help the shelters that are still suffering the effects of the tragic flooding at the end of July. We plan to pull at least 20 dogs, puppies, and/or nursing moms plus an unknown number of cats, kittens, and/or nursing moms with babies.

These animals will arrive, get vaccinated and treated for any minor illness, and then need to go straight out to foster. We plan to turn right back around and go back for second group of animals since the shelters there are overfilled, understaffed, and unable to provide all the care needed.

We need your help!

We will need all animals from our first run picked up between Saturday 8/27 and Monday 8/29 so that we have room to bring in the second run of animals.

Here's what we know:

  • Many of the cats and kittens may have minor URI (kitty colds)

  • The last group of animals we pulled were all pretty friendly with very few major health issues.

  • We will not be able to do dog/cat testing or meet and greets at pick up.

  • All animals will need to be picked up at our retreat located at 5007 Max Ridge Ct in Jeffersontown.

  • You will not be able to pick your animal, but we will do our best to match you with someone who we think will be a good fit based on what we see while the animals are with us.

  • Animals will need foster for 1-4 weeks on average. We will work them back into the main shelter population as we have room and time to spay/neuter them and get them up for adoption.

Here's what we DON'T know:

  • Any information about the animals aside from what we see during transport.

  • We will not know much, if anything, about how these dogs do in homes with other animals or children. Fosters MUST be able to keep animals separate to monitor for illness and temperament before introducing to resident pets.
