BEFORE AFTER
MY STORY

Jax was brought into our shelter as a stray with his brother Jet. He was young and scared, only four months old when he had come in after wandering the streets for an unknown number of days. It wasn't long before his new family saw his sweet face and personality and decided to scoop him up into their loving embrace. Now he's happy in his forever home, given all of the love and affection he could ever ask for, and gets to share the roost with his new brother! Here's what his owners had to say about him: 

"We adopted Jax a few months ago. We LOVE him, our other beagle and him are the best of friends they cuddle and play and can’t stand to be away from each other. He can shake, wave and sit . We are so glad to have him!"

     Maggie     

BEFORE AFTER
MY STORY

Maggie, previously Rosalita, came into our shelter young and scared. She'd not had a lot of life experience yet at three months old and being brought in as a stray was a scary, stressful experience. That's when her forever home swooped in, took her home, and allowed her to blossom into the gorgeous dog she is today. Here's what her owner had to say about her progress:

"I just wanted to say thanks to you all for all that you do to ensure proper care and treatment of the animals found or surrendered. Animals are near and dear to my heart. I have a ten yeah old shepherd that was adopted from a shelter the day after Christmas 10 years ago. I also have a one year old boxer that I adopted from your shelter last year, two days after Christmas. We absolutely love our dogs and once called “Rosalita” is now Maggie. I wanted to simply say thanks for saving babies like her. Here is a picture of her at the shelter and now."

     Rosie     

BEFORE AFTER
MY STORY

Rosie, formerly Roseanne, was found by an officer as a stray, cold and scared while wandering Kentucky back roads. She waited in our shelter for a month before her forever home finally found her and fell in love with her personality and sweet eyes; now she's warm and cared for, given Rosie-sized heaps of love every day. Here's what her owners have to say about their new companion:

"Here’s an update on Rosie! She loves her new home with my parents and has settled in her role as Queen. She loves couch naps, taking over the little dogs' bed (even though she has a Rosie sized one of her own) and sun bathing. She’s happy, healthy, and as always begging for a belly rub."

    Hank (Formerly Scottie)     

BEFORE AFTER
MY STORY

Hank came into our shelter as Scottie, one of seven dogs found abandoned in a box in Nicholasville in August of 2018. He and his littermates were cold, scared, and aching for a family of their own. That was when his new furever family stepped forward and gave him a home, where he is now given all of the love and attention he could ever crave.

"This is Hank....formerly Scottie. He was adopted as a puppy in August. His favorite thing to do is to snuggle on the couch (that he’s not supposed to be on) with his brother!"


Star

    Star    

BEFORE AFTER
MY STORY

Star came into our shelter with nine other animals as a surrender from a hoarder. She had not been given proper attention in such a cramped living environment and was a very shy and timid girl. However, as time passed and we worked with Star, it became clear that under her shy mask was an affectionate, forgiving dog who had a lot of love to share. She trained at the BarkBurn: A New Leash on Life program and then was ready for her forever home with the Fisher family. Here is what they had to say about Star in her new home:

"Star was very shy and it has taken her a while to adjust to meeting new people. She is now a very spoiled girl and spends her days chasing goats, running through fields at high speeds (like a greyhound) and cuddles on the couch. She has been the perfect fit for our family and we are greateful to you all for introducing us!" - Sara, Sam & Star Fisher
