LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11/News Release) - - J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter and No Kill Louisville are partnering to create a no kill community in Clark County, Ind. by August 2013.
The J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter is owned and operated by the City of Jeffersonville, but provides animal shelter services to other areas of Clark County including Borden, Charlestown, Clarksville, Sellersburg, and Utica.
No Kill Louisville’s mission is to build a community where no adoptable pet or feral is killed through the support and creation of programs and services, collaboration and advocacy. These two organizations have a common goal: to provide compassionate care for all the community’s pets.
Through this collaboration, No Kill Louisville will work directly with J.B. Ogle’s staff to increase adoptions both on and off site through public outreach, new program formation and volunteer recruitment work to increase the number of foster families available to J.B. Ogle for infant, senior and ill pets or when the shelter is to capacity; provide fund-raising support and work to increase awareness and further development of the shelter’s spay/neuter programs including Trap Neuter Release for feral/unowned cats.
In addition, No Kill Louisville will pull directly from J.B. Ogle for the organization’s (NKL’s) new feline adoption program, work to set up more off-site adoptions through events and partnering with local businesses and promote J.B. Ogle as the featured shelter of No Kill Louisville’s annual Million Mutt March, taking place this year on Saturday, October 27 at Cherokee Park in Louisville, Ky.
