Gemma & her Gems

Gemma momma arrived with her daughter & son. All 3 are precious and the kittens have bobbed Tails. All three are humble and cautiously friendly. The kittens are playful and loving. They are 5-6 weeks old as of Aug 25th.

The students had a month-long donation drive for our group.  They collected cleaning supplies, foods, collars, leashes, treats, laundry detergents, Clorox wipes and towels.  The students got to meet our fosters,  Darci and Justine!  And we discussed responsible pet ownership, our activities involving homeless pets, and even held a question and answer session.  Everyone got to take photos with Darci and Justin, and cupcakes were enjoyed by all!!



 You can still help us with our mission by donating funds for gas and other needs.

Trap-Spay/Neuter-Release (or Adopt!)

Right now, we have a special spay/neuter program for stray cats in the Powell County area.  By trapping, altering, and releasing stray cats, we are able to address the animal population in a humane and effective way.  For more information, contact the Powell County Animal Shelter at (606) 663-4998 or in person at 121 Echo Hollow Road in Clay City.           

PALS Application Still Available!

We offer assistance to Powell County residents in financial need of spaying and neutering their pets.  If your household is low-income, you may qualify.  You can obtain an application for the PALS program at the Powell County Public Library and at the Powell County Animal Shelter.  


Right now until the end of year, we are holding a donation drive.  Your kind contributions will benefit the homeless pets in our shelter.  We are hoping to receive Purina Puppy or Kitten Chow, canned food (for dogs and cats), general cleaning supplies (including Dawn dish detergent), chew bones (non rawhide), flea and tick meds, small cat beds, paper towels, pee pads, small and medium dog collars, or any monetary donations.  Items can be dropped at Sticks, Stones, & Stitches, The Stanton Vet Clinic, or the Powell County Shelter.
