(Denver, CO) The Denver Dumb Friends League took in 19 dogs from a Kentucky shelter after devastating flooding in the eastern part of the state left at least 39 dead and hundreds displaced – including animals.
“Adopting is one of the No. 1 ways folks can help us with this situation,” said Katie Parker, vice president of sheltering at the Dumb Friends League. “We would love to see these beautiful dogs, in addition to those already in our care, go into their new homes as quickly as possible.”
If adoption isn’t an option, the League said Coloradans can donate to support the Kentucky dogs in their care.
The Kentucky Humane Society transported more than 100 dogs and cats from the Kentucky River Regional Animal Shelter and Floyd County Animal Shelter to make room for pets who were displaced or injured by the floods.
“The animals from the Kentucky Humane Society were up for adoption before the flooding, and we anticipate making them available here for adoption in the next few days,” said Parker, who said to check their website for the latest information.
