She’s skinny, hungry, and trying desperately to get out of the cage (seriously – crawled through the drain opening in the cage and was found running around – tearing up food bags) She’s lost a lot of weight, so we are feeding her more, but she’s flipping out. Still good with us outside of the cage. Not showing issues with other dogs unless SHE’S caged.

Valentine Adult Female - This precious little girl is Valentine. She is about 4 years old & was found by our ACO several days ago. She was found sleeping in a ditch on wet leaves after the nights of frigid temperature. It is difficult to see how she survived. Breaks our hearts to know she was out in the cold, so alone. She has very little hair due to Demodectic Mange, Ehrlichia, and a yeast skin infection. She has lived a very difficult life with very little attention - trying to survive on her own. She is so shy and frightened. Valentine needs lots of love, attention, and socializing. Due to her skin conditions, she is not very pretty now, but with medications and lots of love, she will turn into a Cinderella. The vet says that she is blind in her right eye due to an old injury. Will you please consider helping with Valentine’s vet bills and the care she is going to need until she finds a new furever home? She desperately needs sponsors. She needs a rescue to see the beauty that she will be and take a chance on her. We have a PayPal account listed here on our page or checks can be mailed to Wolfe County Animal Shelter @ 191 Swift Camp Creek Rd., Campton, KY 41301. We are a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.
