Butler County Animal Shelter on code red! – WNKY News 40 Television


BUTLER COUNTY, Ky. – “Our staff and volunteers are great but we just need more help” said Director of Friends of Butler County Animal shelter, Jeanie Locke.

The animal shelter in Butler County is at a code red, meaning they are at full capacity and are in dire need of emergency fostering or adoptions to avoid euthanizing any animals. Of course this is something that staff hopes to avoid by asking the public to put up animals for a few days.

“It’s sad because we’ve done really well about not having to euthanize, and we don’t want to have to euthanize good animals just because we don’t have enough space” said Locke.

The director told News 40 that this is the second time the shelter has gone into code red this year so far and is hoping that the community will come out and help as much as possible.

If you are interested in watching foster an animal over the weekend, the shelter asks that you contact them as soon as possible on their Facebook page, or call at (270) 526-2694
