Oh yeah it is Derby week and the Thoroughbreds reign but sadly so many dogs at Louisville Metro Animal Services are sitting on death row simply because of the severe overcrowding at the shelter. Foster families or adopters desperately needed.
The portrait of many shelter dogs jump out at you with their soulful presence at the non-profit An Act of Dog in Mellwood Arts Center. You are awed by the amazing talent of artist Mark Barone. All of these dogs were euthanized at animal shelters. This is the reason that An Act of Dog exists, to prevent other dogs from their sad fate.
Sadly the Equine Rescue League of Southern Indiana has lost the use of the land they operate on and was suppose to have all horses removed off of the property days ago. There are still four older horses in desperate need of new homes.
Local animal shelters are dreading spring, why? Because that means a influx of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens that cause overcrowding so some pets will get euthanized to make room. We feature this weeks adoptable pets in need.
