Did you know that large dogs have it much harder in shelters? Big dogs take up more cage space, and it often takes them three times as long to get adopted. And big dogs have big litters - often 10-15 puppies!
That's why spaying and neutering is critical. You can help solve the local pet overpopulation problem by donating to the Kentucky Humane Society S.N.I.P Clinic's "Big Dog Fix." Your donation will help the S.N.I.P. Clinic provide low-cost spay/neuter surgeries to big dogs, right here in our community.
It was an early morning in February with 9-degree wind chill. Gregory Curry was making his rounds as a driver for Rumpke Waste & Recycling.
On National Turnpike in South Louisville, he noticed something unusual. A light-blue plastic bin was flipped on its side. The bin was without a lid, but someone had pushed it up against the side of the dumpster. Inside the bin, Gregory saw something fuzzy. His first thought was that the bin was full of stuffed toys.
