Humane society looking for adoptions, donations
MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky. — The Marshall County Humane Society is looking for owners more its dogs and cats. Board Secretary Kip Hutchison says it's been hard to find the perfect owners since fewer adoptions are happening this time of year.
"Donations have been down - adoptions have been down as well," she said.
Most of the kennels and cages are at capacity. She said since April, the number of drop offs has surpassed adoptions. "The longer we have a dog, the harder it is for them to get adopted," Hutchison told Local 6.
This weekend, the Humane Society held it's third annual "Barktoberfest" - a fund-raising event aimed to get the animals a forever family.
"The ultimate goal is for the community to come out and see out animals, see our animals for adoption and show us their support," she said.
The Humane Society faces another obstacle - its sewer line burst earlier this week. Hutchison doesn't have the $10,000 needed for repairs. So she's asking for your help to save the animals and their home. "We definitely would like to see them all get a home," she said with a smile.
