Foster

Why Foster?

  1. You will be saving a life, even if you adopt from a no-kill organization you will be helping rescue another animal by making room at the shelter.
  2. You will save money, adopting of fostering costs less than buying an animal from a pet shop or breeder.
  3. By adopting or fostering rather than buying a new companion, you will reduce the demand that drives the commercial breeding of puppies and kittens.

Pets Available for Foster

 . Chester .
 . Chester .
  • Treeing Walker Coonhound
  • Spayed/Neutered
Chester came to the shelter as a stray. He was likely a kenneled hunting dog previously because he doesn't act like he has been in a home before (lays down and is very nervous). He is learning the leach and we are working on housebreaking. Chester loves people and really likes attention. He is playful outside and would love a fenced in yard. He is good with most other dogs but has shown some disapproval toward other male dogs.

 . Ruby .
  • Hound
  • Spayed/Neutered
Ruby came to the shelter as a stray. She was extremely this and unable to use one of her rear legs. Upon further investigation we discovered an old injured to her leg that has healed which does affect her use of that leg. Ruby is slowly gaining weight and doing better every day. She is very sweet and loves people. She loves her bed and our staff enjoys taking pictures of her in her funny sleeping positions. Ruby is good with other animals but would do best in a home that does not have a very playful dog due to her limited mobility. She loves attention and would make a great companion as she is happy being right next to someone. Primary Color: Brindle Secondary Color: White Age: 2yrs 1mths 1wks Animal has been Spayed

 . Dennis .
  • Labrador Retriever, Shepherd
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without catsPrefers home without small kids
Dennis came to the shelter because his owner moved to an apartment that would not allow him to stay there. Dennis has a typical shepherd personality and seems to really bond with one or two people. He would likely do best in an adult only home. Dennis is okay with some other dogs but would prefer to be an only pet. He cannot be in a home with cats. Dennis is high energy and needs an actively family or a big yard where he can play and put that energy to use. He is working to learn basic commands and leash walking but this is something his new family will need to continue to work on. Primary Color: Black Age: 3yrs 1mths 2wks Animal has been Neutered

 . Gator .
 . Gator .
  • American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Gator came to the shelter after he was removed from his previous owner for neglect. Gator was extremely thin and was left outside in the freezing cold. He has fully recovered (and then some) and is doing well. He is a big love and would be a great buddy for the right person. In general, he does not get along well with other male dogs but seems to do okay with females. He is very gentle and affectionate with people. He likes toys and treats and absolutely loves his bed- he is a bit of a lazy boy. Primary Color: White Secondary Color: Black Age: 3yrs 1mths 3wks Animal has been Neutered

 . Dutch .
  • Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Dutch was surrendered to the shelter along with 7 other dogs because their owner became homeless. Dutch is not generally good with new people or in new situations which makes it very hard for him to get out of the shelter. He is good with other dogs and is great with people once he knows them but he needs someone that understand this will happen on his terms and may take several days. Once he is comfortable he is a true lap dog and will always want attention. He likes beds and blankets and would do best in a quiet home but would also love to have other dogs to hang out with.

 . Edith Ann .
 . Edith Ann .
  • Collie
  • Spayed/Neutered
Edith Ann was surrendered to the shelter because her owner could not afford to care for her. She had a skin infection due to a flea allergy and was underweight but is recovering well. She is a sweet dog that is good with other dogs and likes attention but is nervous in new situations. Edith Ann should not be in a home with small children due to her shy personality and fearfulness when there is a lot of commotion.

  • Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
Pat is a Chihuahua mix. He is estimated to be 12+ years old. Pat has a heart condition and must take daily medication but he seems to be doing very well and doesn't let it slow him down. Patsy is a Chihuahua/Pug mix. She is estimated to be 12+ years old. Patsy was very underweight and had a large infected tumor when she came to the shelter. After a major surgery and a brief recovery time she has become a very happy girl. Patsy does have some arthritis and scars from her past life experiences but she gets around fine and is a very sweet girl. Pat and Patsy both came to the shelter as strays within a few days of each other. We don't think they knew each other before coming here. Both were in poor body condition and seemed depressed. The staff thought it was worth introducing them to see if they might be some comfort to each other during the stress of their stay. It was a success and now these two can't be separated! They sleep together, eat together and are housed together as best buddies. They have gained weight and mobility and are much healthier now. We would love to see these two go to a home where they could stay together with someone that understands their age and would just be willing to love them and let them live out their best lives!

Ellie was surrendered to the shelter because her owner moved and could not take her with him. She is a sweet girl but can be shy/nervous at first and it may take her a bit to warm up to new people. Once she is comfortable Ellie is very affectionate. She is okay with other dogs but will need a home without cats or small children.

  • Cattle Dog, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Crissy is an 8 year old Cattledog/Hound mix while Molly is a 10 year old lab mix. These girls have been through a lot together and we would like them to live their lives out together in the perfect home. Crissy and Molly lived with one owner most of their adult lives. He passed away roughly 8 months ago and a family friend agreed to take the two girls to avoid them being sent to the shelter. Their previous owner lived in Florida so the girls were transported from Florida to Kentucky to settle in with the family friend. Unfortunately, just as these girls were settling and really starting to get comfortable again the new owner accepted a new position with her job and was transferred to Texas and did not plan to take the two senior girls with her so they were surrendered to our facility. These girls are very easy going, Molly is very sweet and happy to see everyone, Crissy can be a bit shy at first but will quickly approach for attention, Crissy just isn't as excitable as Molly. Both are very mild mannered and are fine with other animals. As far as we know they are housebroke, Molly had a lipoma (fatty growth) removed from her leg when she was spayed but there is no need for any additional treatment. Crissy had a large wart taken off her ear when she was spayed but again, there is no need for additional treatment. These girls have been given a clean bill of health and are just looking for the perfect family to love them and give them the stability they are desperate for.
