Kennel 12 Jane Female -  NEEDS OUT! LONGEST SHELTER RESIDENT! Still lactating! Sweet and pretty girl! She was obviously thrown away by her previous 'owner' after they got what they wanted from her. Let's show her that she's precious and worthy of a loving family. Walks well on a leash. https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337.1073741828.990237714383542/1559266657480642/?type=3&theater

Kennel 1 Female URGENT! WHY IS THIS DOG STILL HERE! Affectionate, smart, friendly, and here she sits... at the kennel for weeks now, and we just can't figure it out. Maybe it's because we spend more time getting to know the dogs than just walking down the isle and "window shopping" like some adopters do, but from the bottom of my heart, I'm asking you to come spend some time today and hangout with this pretty girl in Kennel #1. Homeless, underweight, one of the longest residents, and such a nice dog... she needs OUT!!!  https://www.facebook.com/VolunteersofLCDK/photos/a.990246431049337.1073741828.990237714383542/1529331973807444/?type=3&theater

SAD UPDATE - SHELTER WITHOUT PITY KILLS AGAIN - HEALTHY ADOPTABLE DOGS! R.I.P.

COMMENT BY ONE OF THE VOLUNTEERS WHO TRIES TO SAVE AS MANY ANIMALS IN THE SHELTER AS POSSIBLE:

Judge Executive Jimbo Adams & Dog Warden David Snyder sleep very well at night. They are very cold, callous & calculated. It is solely about the money. They have found a way to pull on the heartstrings of the community's animal lovers all while generating revenue. The killings are to keep everyone reminded of just who is in charge. Ignorance is in charge. Greed is in charge. Corruption is in charge. Plus they need the money to offset whatever the financial cost to the county will be when they both are found guilty for not doing their job regarding the Pope dogs since they are both specifically named as defendants in a pending lawsuit. Jimbo has given David Snyder the freedom to run the shelter as he sees fit. For someone who can barely speak (David) with less than a marginal ability to deal with the public, and as someone who breeds hunting dogs & wanted no ordinance to apply to him or his hunting dogs, you cannot have it both ways. The county has left their real job to the volunteers who go above and beyond, making sure as many animals are safe as possible. While Jimbo kicks back at his desk, David enjoys killing - it is in his blood. (I label him as vicious as he labels and chooses who lives and dies...) either by hunting or by needle, it's his enjoyment. Until you vote out those who have no conscience and an alternate agenda, you will have to deal with this garbage.

Here is judge adams' email and Phone number - He is one of the people who makes the decisions about the shelter.

Paintsville, KY: URGENT! AT CAPACITY!

SHELTER NEEDS HELP…PLEASE READ & SHARE!

The Johnson County Animal Shelter needs your help! This past week the shelter took in 13 kittens, 5 adult cats (four borderline feral or straight out feral), 13 adult dogs and three pups. We are now at capacity even after doing multiple transports last week.

We are fortunate that right now through donations from our community and utilizing a "Rescue Bank" program, the shelter has enough food and litter to care for these animals as well as the animals that we already were housing.

What the shelter needs now is your help in paying for the monthly costs of maintaining the shelter and medical care for the animals who come in neglected, abandoned or as strays.
I'm sitting here getting ready to pay bills for the shelter and at times it is overwhelming.

I've included on this post the bills the utility bills that are due for this month. On average, these bills represent the costs we incur each month with the exception of the Rescue Bank costs and Midwest Vet Supply bills. Depending on what we have on hand those costs vary. We also have to purchase supplies such as detergent, bleach, paper towels, garbage bags and gloves. We buy the cheapest possible of all of these items.

Also not included is the cost of transporting the animals. This also varies. Sometimes we have had three transports to Lexington in one week as well as trips to the vet. The cost of gasoline adds up very quickly.
The current vet bill is $2158.72.

Payroll averages around $4000-$5000 per month (This includes payroll taxes.) for five part-time employees including the shelter manager. Of the five, two employees average only 10 hours per week. Every employee makes minimum wage and hours are kept at a minimum to what is needed to provide the care for the animals.

We depend on you to help us maintain this shelter. Without your help, it can't be done.

So, on average the cost to run the Johnson County Animal Shelter this past month was $8532.73.

We receive $21000 from the Johnson County Fiscal Court per YEAR and $6000 from the City of Paintsville per year. The shelter receives reimbursement for some vetting expenses from the many rescues who give these animals a chance at forever homes.

The rest comes from the many fundraisers we have and mostly from donations from YOU.

I know that you won't let these precious animals down. Please if you can spare anything at all it would help so much.

You can donate via Paypal at: [email protected], by stopping by the shelter or one of our fundraising events or by mail at: JCAS/WOW-Post Office Box 1313-Paintsville, KY 41240.

Also, donations to pay the vet bill can be called in to Highland Vet Clinic at 606-789-1195.

Please share and help us help them.
