Animal Shelter sees uptick in intakes, looking for community aid

The Christian County Regional Animal Shelter is putting out a call for aid, as they’re seeing more animals than usual come through their doors. 

That has put the animal shelter at max capacity and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down soon—newly appointed Director Melissa Goff says where they used to see an average of 200-to-300 intakes each month, last month saw nearly double that amount, and it’s putting a real strain on the facility and the staff.

Goff says they are forever grateful to the support they receive from the community, and the way people can help now—come adopt a new family member, foster an animal until they find their forever home, or maybe sponsor an adoption fee for a cat or dog.

The shelter is always accepting donations, whether that be food, items such as blankets or toys, or monetary donations. 

Goff says the staff is doing all they can to keep all animals comfortable, healthy and as happy as possible, and they’re working to get as many of them spayed or neutered before they leave the shelter as possible, to help cut down on unwanted pets in the community.
