Goin’ Mobile and Savin’ Lives
A New Approach to Adoption…
Our Northern Kentucky community continues to grow and with that growth comes a corresponding increase in the number of homeless pets who need sheltering, protection, and promotion.
Boone County Animal Care and Control has chosen to move beyond the “come to the shelter” approach to adoption and to bring our adoptable “pets to the people” where they work, play, and shop.
By using this “shelter on wheels” we can achieve our goal of increasing adoptions of deserving animals and as a result end the euthanasia of adoptable pets.
Developing partnerships is critical to creating a
community with no more homeless or unwanted pets.
Our Adoption Partners assist the shelter with activities that
save lives. The Friends of the Shelter/SPCA, Inc. offer volunteers and
resources to get our pets into new homes.
Partners stick together…
Thelma & Louise Adopted Oct 2008
A Proven Approach…
We currently do not have an adoption vehicle in Northern Kentucky, although Cincinnati area humane organizations often bring mobile units to events in our communities to promote adoptions. Across the country, many animal shelters report up to a 300% increase in adoption rates. Purchase of our “adoption waggin” would be an effective and economical solution to meet the needs of a growing community and an alternative to the more expensive “bricks and mortar.”
Community Service Hits the Road…
Animal Emergencies ARE
The “shelter on wheels” affords Boone County the opportunity to meet other needs:
- Emergency Response–both natural and man made disasters for animal evacuation, transport, and triage.
- Education at schools, daycare centers and events–pet care, dog bite prevention, and responsible ownership.
- Transportation to low cost spay/neuter programs.
Community is Key…
All donations will go towards the support and maintenance of the Mobile Unit
Advertising space on the vehicle is available to a limited number of companies on a first come basis.
