We are a 501 (c) 3, no-kill animal organization in Hopkins County. Pet Lovers United, Inc., does not have a building location for our animals. Therefore, we must place them in foster homes or board the pet(s) if the owner will not keep. We are all volunteers. We operate off of fundraisers and the public's donations. We warn the public of hazzards to the animal owners in Hopkins County like weekly, illegal dog fighting, dog theft for the dog fights, dog theft for resale to research laboratories, bad breeders obtaining "free" or "found" house pets for their breeding endeavors. *When sending any email to Pet Lovers United, Inc., please make sure you put animal's name or nature of email in "subject" line or it may not be opened. Thank You.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

I have a two year old Tennessee Freeing Hound. He has been neutered, paperwork showing his shots are current. He weighs 70 pounds and needs to be with someone who can run and play with him. He is very trainable. He is too much dog for my husband and I especially since we are both disabled.

Hello, My name is Marie. My Mother ( Sandra) My Fiance ( Dave) and I have been taking in stray cats, providing vet care, if needed, and trying to find these cats homes. We now, have 10 cats, and would like to find homes, for 2 adults, and 2 kittens. After we find homes for those kittens and cats, we would like to become a foster home, for more cats. We started taking in stray cats, without knowing that, in Madisonville, Ky there isn't very much help, for homeless cats and most people here, would rather have dogs. We have found some cats, that were dumped off and needed medical care. We rehabilitated one of the cats and we are working on the second cat, who was very ill, but he is showing progress. Could you please tell us, what we need to do, to become a foster home for your organization? It will take some time, to find homes for the 4 cats and kittens we have, but we would like to help more. My mom and I receive disability for our income, and my fiance has a job, but we are on a fixed income, so we can't afford to take anymore cats in, right now, until the others find homes. We would like to work toward becoming a foster home, for cats and possibly 1 dog at a time, as we have 1 dog of our own, already. We rent a home, so space is limited, but we have 1 room, that is devoted, to the cats and kittens. It has several litter boxes, a cat condo and lots of toys. The cats and kittens, are free to run around the house, and we leave their bedroom door open, so they can go in and out. Thank you for your time, and we look forward to hearing back from you. Sincerely, Marie
