A P.O. Box 929, Murray, KY 42071 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats, rabbits, small animals, horses, farm-type animals.
This Rescue hasn't posted any pets that match these criteria.
All of Western KY. and some parts of TN.
Our purpose is to help find neglected and orphaned animals loving homes. We work with local and some non-local shelters, along with other local volunteers to foster these animals and find them good homes. We do not have a shelter or facility to house the animals that we take in. We work with a network of local volunteers to foster these animals until we can place them in their new home. We cannot take in owner surrenders due to the large number of animals that we save from kill shelters. All of our animals are rescued from shelters the day that they are scheduled to be killed. We get the animal proper vet care, vaccines, spayed/neutered, and on heart worm and flea prevention.
Please, if you are considering giving up your pet, try to find it a good home before you take it to a shelter. 70% of owner surrenders at shelters are killed as soon as you leave them. This is because they are usually overcrowded and have to keep the stray animals for at least 5 days before they kill them. The shelter is a place for animals that are lost or orphaned. It does not need to be a place where you can just drop off your animal when you don't want it anymore.
BE RESPOSIBLE!!! They are living, breathing animals, that trust, love, and depend on you to take care of them. Please keep this in mind when you realize that you cannot keep him/her anymore and try to find your animal a good home. Otherwise you are turning your back on all of the unconditional love and compassion that they have only known to show you and you are committing the rest of their short lived life on a cold shelter floor, scared and wondering what they did so wrong to get left there. No more pets on the head, or belly rubs. No more quiet nights sleeping in your bed, or the sense of belonging..... Just the relentless barking and the sense of fear until their cage door opens... Scared and unsure about what is about to happen to them, they still trust a perfect stranger, still wag their tails as they take their "last walk"... still purr and rub their head on your shoulder... still think that their owner will be behind that door when it opens... "He is your friend, your partner, your defender. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion"
