Across Kentucky, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for your new companion, consider looking around at a local facility like J B Ogle Animal Shelter, where Puddin the dog is waiting patiently. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.
