A letter to my future adoptive parent,
Let me introduce myself, my name is “Zoro”, guess the mask on my face earned me the name. I am 2 ½ years old, and have lived most of my life at the shelter. I do having caring volunteers, but most of the joys of being a dog have not been in my day to day life. I came to the shelter at 6 months old with a bad case of mange, so human touch was limited, and I was not allowed to play with other dogs. I only get walked from the 12 x 12 pen to the outdoor kennel, I am a strong boy, so getting to walk down the road and sniff grass has never happened for me. I have so much love to give, but all people see when they come by my cage is the way I protect my home. If only that special person with a fenced in yard and great dog skills would come by and meet me, I promise I will try my best to be your best dog ever.
Signed,
Zoro

About Best Friends Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Best Friends Sanctuary Inc. is dedicated to helping to reduce the stray animal population in Fentress County. Our mission is to provide spaying or neutering of the dogs and cats; assist in placing abandoned, unwanted, or abused animals in loving, responsible homes; and to promote and provide animal care education.

We organized in 2001. We started a spay/neuter program and limited adoptions and humane education. In April 2006, we started transporting canines to a no kill shelter in Ohio. To date, we have transported 8000+ canines who have been adopted. We were fortunate to obtain an ASPCA Transportation Grant in 2014 that will help with re-location.

We continue our low income Spay/Neuter program with funds obtained from grants. We also hold many fundraisers during the year to support our rescue/transport program. We are a very rural area with no shelter or animal control of any kind. Unwanted pets are discarded in the road or woods where they meet less than humane deaths by starving, vehicle, wild animals and disease. Many people are against spaying/neutering due to culture so it is a challenge to convince them that spaying or neutering is the answer to a big problem. We get some assistance from the local government, but donations, fundraisers and grants keep us going.
