The Logan County Humane Society is once again asking the community for help. The society is searching for those who may be interested in driving unwanted dogs and puppies to rescue facilities up north.
The Society has a thriving rescue program and through its partnerships with rescue facilities that locate homes for the unwanted dogs and puppies in Logan County they have been able to save literally thousands of dogs over the past five years.
The Society purchased a 16 foot enclosed, air conditioning truck a few years ago to transport the animals to places in Chicago as well as also meeting up with other transports only a couple hours away. What Society board members need are responsible drivers to donate their time, usually Saturday early mornings, to take the trips. These trips can range from two hours to a five hour drive one way. The more drivers they have the more the job can be distributed where not just one driver has to drive all the time.
The Humane Society provides the fuel for the trip and if the trips are long distances such as to Chicago, they provide accommodations for a one night stay in an economy hotel.
What is required to be a volunteer driver is a valid Kentucky drivers license, a good driving record and be at least 25 years of age. You will be required to submit your driving information and licence to the Society’s insurance agent to check your driving record.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer driver for the Humane Society and have met the criteria listed above, your name will be placed on a list and called upon when needed for scheduling. If you are interested please call 270-893-3432 or 270-726-2186 and leave a message.
Without the rescue program, the Humane Society could not save as many animals as they do. Although local adoptions help some, it is the rescue facilities up north that continually pull from the shelter to save large numbers of animals.
