I'm reposting to bump this thread up. We have found a really nice, medium/large dog with long fur at the K-mart parking lot. This dog is really nice and has obviously been living in a good home. Somebody out there is heartbroken. If you know of anyone who has lost a dog near k-mart, please post a good description and your contact information. Thank you.

Where is Hopperstown? And are you feeding them to prevent them from starving? Puppies are truly helpless & cannot fend for themselves. Are they still there now? What a shame anyone would leave a puppy, two, to starve or be killed by predators. I'd be willing to bring them some puppy food if you'd feed them until they can be rescued. How about it?

It might help to post at least what color the dog is or what breed he looks like. Is it male or female? How about putting an ad in the paper, I think it's free for a "Found Dog". So many folks do not use Topix. Just a thought. Hope the owner is found soon.
Oh yes, it may not have been lost around there at all. Dogs do travel in search of people & food. Some lady in Somerset is missing a Golden Retriever & a Bird dog that were family pets too.

Over the years I've heard all kinds of stories. Some where a person will pick up a dog thinking they might keep it. Then realize they cannot, & drop it back off in an entirely different location. Or the dog will run when they get the chance. You just never know. Could've been in a car wreck or any number of things to separate it from it's owner. Just sad!

If you think the dog is a particular breed you might want to post it on a website for dogs that are missing for that specific breed!

What KIND of dog are you missing? What breed or mix is it? Some rescued dogs end up in Campbellsville either at the shelter, or at a Rescue for re-homing. I'd check there if I were you & you have to go in person to look at the shelter. Some people say dogs don't last long that go in over there at the shelter. I do not know, but it does not sound like a place I'd want my lost dog to be.
Does anyone know where the dogs who are picked up locally, by the dog warden, go once he captures them? I'd like to know.

Russell county dogs are picked up, held for a "load" and trucked to Pulaski county for "adoption". Any found dog here will be eventually be in Pulaski, if it makes it out of the holding area here down near the old dump. It's educational, ever citizen should visit the dump at least once.....across the road from Terry Stephens offices on Bernard Ridge...past the County Garage.

they're gettin food and water every day. just tryin to find somebody that will take em. they're very lovable little dogs. lots of dogs get dropped off in that area, and its so close to the main road that im afraid they'll get hit by passing cars. nobody wants to call the dog catcher cause i know what happens after that. and there's so many people always lookin for dogs, it seems like it wouldnt be too hard to find a family for em. if anybody wants em let me know.

So glad the pups found somebody wonderful like you nearby! So nice of you to help them in their struggle. It's a shame people would just drop puppies off like that, pretty cruel treatment. Hope their not just weaned puppies! They sound cute, but I think all puppies are, haha!
I don't know who might want them but i will do some checking around for you during the next few days. This is why no one should breed their dog without first having homes for the puppies.
People please spay & neuter your dogs!! It can be done free sometimes, no reason not to.

I do not know anything about how the dogs & puppies are handled but I did see the contraption their transported in. Not good to have different dogs all mixed in together, they get hurt that way. I wish there was a way those of us who care about dogs could improve the situation for their rescue. I don't get why the county wouldn't provide proper kennels for rescues,(if they don't).
What can we do to fix it for them?

I'd like to know more about this place. With all the grants for shelters, etc., I don't get why we don't have a proper facility? I mean anything politicians do to help or aid dogs is always a big bonus for them, so I do not get the disregard to RC animals.
I'd like to go see the place you speak of. I would think it would ,at the least have to be humane. Are you saying it isn't? Near a dump is not good though, can you imagine the flies & bugs around a dump...and hence, around anywhere dogs are kept? Not good.
I do know that Roger (dog catcher) was very very nice & helpful to me. He seemed like a guy who cares about the dogs. I figured he is just having to deal with what he has got to work with. I still want to do something nice for him for helping me to help a stray when he really didn't have to, but did it out of the goodness of his heart.
Anyway, I'd like to know as much as I can about the facility & why it's the way it is if it's bad. Maybe people could join together to make it better?

I said the "old dump", they don't use it anymore. The dog pound has always been there. In the last 10 years it was "improved", first with a cement floor, then a water faucet, later a roof, still later a complete metal enclosure that is kept locked..as I understand from those who have been, feces are pushed to the back sometimes but seldom if ever cleaned out. I have been told that sometimes the strays are just kept in the hauling cage and left in one of the state/county buildings. And you have seen the hauler. In earlier years the dogs were shot and dumped in a hole dug by a backhoe, near the kennels, they are still there....Now they go to Pulaski Co Animal Shelter,eventually, and as I understand it all the Russell Co dogs are adopted out...that is quite an accomplishment?right? I haven't been back to the "old dump" for several years..so it might be beautiful now ;).
There is no interest in any animals here in Russell county. Roger is an agreeable person who values his job, he does what he is told. There are degrees of care for animals, my care might be better or worse than yours..or his.
As I said, I haven't been there for a few years, check it out. It could have changed...you might even check with Pulaski and see if they are all adopted out....or taken to another facility in a larger city that is not no kill. What is Pulaski's kill percentage?
Dogs and cats in Russell County? If you dig you are in for an education. It's sad...

To "Shelter or Not", That's just plain sad, that here we are in 2012 & RC is still living in the dark ages as far as animals & being humane goes. I'm curious as heck why the politicians aren't getting regularly reamed for this. Like you said, I guess for the most part people just don't care.
I was completely shocked to hear a friend tell me just 2 yrs. ago that the police or one of the deputies came to their house regarding a stray & promptly shot the dog dead! She made that sound like a regular occurrence. Just pitiful to think about.
I'm also struck by the lack of dog sense or education regarding dogs & their care around here.
I think it's great that anyone likes or wants to own a dog & I understand some people just don't know what to do or what they require. But everyone's life with their dog would be improved if we could get some educational dog activities going. A place to offer puppy training, etc.! A dog park is very much needed in RC. Especially with all the tourists who travel with their dogs.
I'm truly amazed we have a tourist commission but they ignore that part of tourist concerns. We certainly have enough places a fine dog park could be installed. It takes about a acre of land at least with water available & lighting. It sure doesn't cost much to have one. And the benefits for dogs is remarkable (socialization etc). Better behavior because they get much needed exercise. Plus it's a great place to get acquainted with like minded people, & helps them to want to be more involved in "community" concerns.
A dog park I'm very familiar with has special events all year round. Fourth of July dog parades in the dog park with costume contests, prizes, educational events, & other fun stuff. I'm hoping I can help work with some other folks to get us a much needed dog park.

Another thing, yes, I saw the hauler, not a very good contraption. I cringe to think of a dog locked up in a hot building in that thing for any length of time. I do not think, by law, that would be an acceptable practice. Dogs die from heat exhaustion fairly easily.
And that thing about feces NOT being cleaned up.....that's a huge health concern, not just for animals but people too. Not good.
I don't get why we don't have our own rescue center here. The fees charged for adoption could go a long way toward covering costs of maintaining it.
It would also be a huge help if RC cracked down on these backyard breeders who keep breeding dogs without a care for where they go or how their taken care of. There are limits on how much breeding you can do in most states. And puppy mills flourish because of these types of breeders. Never good for the dogs.
I'm going to have to do some research on Ky laws regarding all things dogs & see what i find.
Something else I'm curious about, are their ANY dog trainers around the area at all? Like beginning puppy obedience training? I haven't heard of any.

If you are really interested you might contact the United States Humane Society of Ky. Just type it into your search engine, it will give you info on the Ky division. Panela Rogers heads up this division and she has been to Russell county on several occasions. She might be able to put you in touch with likeminded individuals. Good Luck.

Thanks, I will give a call for sure. You know, I was also thinking, with so many dog people in RC, it would seem we should be able to do fund raisers or some sort of events to raise money to make the transport trailer better & safer. Maybe even raise some funds for the facility they 'should' be held in so that it is at least humane & clean with food & water, etc.
The whole thing just sounds like a bad situation. The people of RC should be able to improve it. I sure hope so!
