My name is Tinker and I am a grumpy little man. For real. I need someone who can look past my gruff and love me for the way I am. Once I get to know you I still try to act tough but I will give you kisses and growls all at the same time. You see I belonged to a lady and every time her husband got mad at her he would hurt me. I have been hit, kicked, thrown about and dropped from a high porch. So I don't trust easily. If you have any questions about me or would like to see me in person please let my Nana know and we can arrange it. Or you can go to www.hoppershalfwayhome.com and fill out an application for me. Waiting, waiting, waiting for you to come see my little bad self. lol

About Hoppers Halfway Home Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are not a big place. We are an all volunteer no kill facility. We opened in May of 2011. We have had over 250 adoptions since opening. We opened the rescue because there were not enough places in our area to help all the dogs coming into the shelter. I can have up to 25 rescue dogs. That means there are 25 more getting out of the shelter than before we opened. There are two of us that work full time taking care of the 25 rescue dogs and my own personal pets.

If you are looking for a way to help the animals we would love to talk to you about joining us as a volunteer. We need morning, afternoon and weekend help.

We have at least one adoption event a month. We would love to have more but to do that we need more help.

Some of the things on our wish list are: Dog food. Dry adult and puppy, canned adult and puppy, treats, collars, leashes, sweaters, etc. We also need bleach, laundry detergent, fabric softener, Pine Sol, Odo-Ban (disinfectant) can get by the gallon at Sams Club. Paper towels, toilet tissue, baby wipes, etc. We can always use monetary donations for vetting, medicines, grooming, gas for transports, etc.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are located in Harrodsburg, Ky. We are open Tuesday through Fri, by appointment, for you to meet our furkids. Our hours are from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. We will open on Sat, Sun and Monday by appointment only. We do at least one adoption event a month at Tractor Supply in Danville, Ky.
