Petfinder.com Foundation’s Rescue U heads to Kentucky to help shelters!

Tags: ,

… And we’re off! I am heading down to Kentucky to partner with Animal Lifeline on our Rescue U program. Together with a group of dedicated college students, professional staff, and colleagues, we’re going to help rebuild some shelters in need.

Painter is an adoptable cattle dog at Rowan County Animal Shelter.

Approximately 30 students from Delaware Valley College, Morehead State University and Eastern Kentucky University will be volunteering together on various projects to improve shelter conditions at Rowan County Animal Shelter and Menifee County Animal Shelter in Eastern Kentucky.

The students are giving up their first week of summer vacation to repair and install chain link fences and kennels, build roofs over kennels, install a dog bath, make dog and cat beds, clean the existing kennels and install an outdoor cat enclosure and play area.

Like we did with our last Rescue U trip, to South Carolina, we’ll keep you updated from the road with video blogs so you can see firsthand the amazing work the students are doing and the pets who are waiting to find their forever homes.

This trip is made possible through the support of our friends at BISSELL, longtime advocates for pet adoption, The Animal Rescue Site and GreaterGood.org. Visit The Animal Rescue Site every day to make a free click donation that supports the Petfinder.com Foundation.
