WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) - The Hildreth Adoption Center prides itself on being a no kill shelter, but a recent set back has them asking the public for help.
Each week, some animals that are up for adoption are moved to larger no kill shelters in the northeast. Last month the truck that transports the animals broke down and is stuck up north.
The shelter is now using smaller vans that don't have a large capacity, which is why they hope those that are looking for a new pet will come forward.
"It's so important that we move the animals as fast as we possibly can and we are very fortunate to have a great community who adopts a lot of animals from us, but in reality our intakes far surpass our adoptions," says Executive Director Lorri Hare.
The truck is currently being repaired in the northeast, but an essential part is still needed.
Intakes of animals have been on the rise this summer, which is why the shelter hopes to have the truck back on the road as soon as possible.
