Gypsy is a 1.5 year old brindle cur mix that was surrendered by her owner. They said that she has been tied up her whole life and had no training what so ever, also said that she has food aggression. It does appear that Gypsy will need lots of patience and time to realize she is no longer going to be abused or neglected and may possibly bite out of fear. She was brought in with a yellow lab named Chloe.
Gypsy, Mountain Cur Mix has been shared from Shelter Exchange.

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.
