How sad! It looks as if she tried running her own shelter, since she called it the "Forever Home & Sanctuary". When I was in Kentucky last year, in the Fort Henry area, we found a puppy that had swam out of the river. There were no shelters in the area, and the police told me that they would have the dog PTS at the local vet's for a cost of $125.00 for the town. So, my hubby & I had to drive back to TN, get a hotel room for the night, and surrender the dog at a shelter in TN. I donated $25.00 for the dog, and bought $20.00 of cat supplies, which the shelter attendants were thrilled to receive. The standard of living in that area of KY seemed much more depressed than in TN, so I couldn't fault the locals for the sad conditions for animals there; near a campground, we found a pack of at least 10 stray dogs, horribly tick infested, including a beautiful Pomeranian, and 2 dachshunds, which here in CA or at the shelter in Reno, NV would have almost certainly adopted within 24 hrs. My hubby was willing to let me fly out one dog, but they ran off before I could catch one. If prayers & vibes work (and I think they do), this lady will get the miracles she needs and the animals will get great homes.
