We offer our hands and our hearts to overcrowded shelters in rural areas.
Most of Rogers’ Rescues foster dogs are rescued from shelters in West Virginia and Kentucky. Shelters in these areas are in desperate need of help because:
Most dogs in the area are not spayed or neutered, resulting in many unwanted litters.
The population in these regions is sparse, the shelters can’t possibly find homes for all the unwanted dogs.
Rogers’ Rescues is one of many rescues who provide help to these Southern shelters by offering some of their dogs a new chance at life.
Once a year, a group of Rogers’ Rescues volunteers travels to some of the shelters to meet staff and offer support. The hardworking people in these rural shelters face life and death decisions every day. We are honored to ease their burdens when we can.
Here is a short documentary about our first shelter trip.
