Public Responds To Pleas For Help From Garrard County Humane Society

The Garrard County Humane Society, which put out a plea for help last week after they said they were on the verge of losing the building it uses to help so many pets, say the public has responded resoundingly and they will be able to pay their mortgage.

The people at the shelter are so used to helping people and pets, it seems odd for them to be the people in need. "It's hard times on everybody...especially us," said Mark Hurte, who works for the Garrard County Animal Society.

The "no kill" shelter has been having a tough time financially the past few months. "We've fallen a little short on our mortgage payment," said Hurte last week. "We're just doing an SOS campaign to save our shelter."

Although the Garrard County Humane Society met their immediate need, the shelter is still in need of donations. To donate online through their ‘chip-in' account by clicking here, or you can go to their Facebook page by clicking here.

If you'd like to donate, you can also mail a check to P.O. Box 875, Lancaster, Kentucky, 40444.

The shelter is also looking for someone who can develop their website, in lieu of a donation. For more information, call 859-792-4581 or email
