Fostering pups from the winter snow

The McCracken County Animal Shelter is stocked with blankets to keep all the dogs and cats warm in this weather, but ahead of the snow– they knew some of the dogs would need temporary homes.

The snow can be stressful enough for us people- but some locals saw the need to take in some other friends who may be stressed out as well- people like Stephanie Lee. She says although she can’t adopt any more dogs into her home, she likes to try and foster when she can. Lee says,”I can take in one space until they can be adapted so that’s what I did.”

In this winter storm, Lee took in Elizabeth from the McCracken County Animal Shelter. Lee says she knows the shelter does their best in caring for the pups, but she encourages anyone with the time and resources, “if you can give them a better environment until they get adopted then why not.”

So Lee will continue to love on Elizabeth at least until the snow melts and she can find a permanent home.

The McCracken County Animal Shelter says all the dogs in need found foster homes, and the shelter is fully stocked for the weather now. But they say if the weather worsens– more dogs could need help.
