BROOKE COUNTY, W.Va. (WTRF) – There’s a special group of people in the Ohio Valley who take care of animals in need, but now is the community’s turn to help them.
In only a few days, 7News is giving you the chance to do that at our Nexstar Broadcasting Founder’s Day of Caring Fur-Ever Friends Day.
The Brooke County Animal Shelter will be there with a few of its adoptable animals.
They take in strays, owner releases and even work with rescues to make sure all these dogs and cats find a home.
Right now they have several mother cats and kittens that will be available for adoption in the coming weeks, so they’re doing to need help to make sure they have enough supplies.
We’re just all animal lovers. It’s hard, but when your favorite dog walks out the door another one that comes in that’s your favorite. It’s nice when you see somebody walk out the door getting a good home.Donna DeJaro, Director, Brooke County Animal Shelter
