Saving the lives of Bullitt County Animals Update

This petition had 1,284 supporters

First of all we would like to thank Judge Executive Melanie Roberts and the Magistrates who voted to improve the Bullitt County Animal Shelter. The shelter has made great progress in improving the care and conditions of the animals. There is still much more that is needed such as medical vetting.  This  includes shots, spay, neutering and micro chipping. The shelter's budget is limited, so as a community we need to pull together to help ensure quality care for the animals. No animal needs to suffer or be euthanized due to insufficient funding.  If you would like to help with vetting cost please call Shepherdsville Animal Hospital 502-921-1177.  Please make sure to inform them this is for the Bullitt County Animal Shelter. Every dollar counts and would be greatly appreciated.



Our animal shelter in Bullitt County has been severely neglectful in providing adequate care for the animals there. Change needs to happen. There is no reason why dogs have old inadequate beds or at the very least blankets in their kennels. Previous volunteers have stated that there are plenty of blankets there but are apparently to much trouble to wash. The animals are already scared and stressed enough just a little bit of comfort would make them feel that somebody actually cares. Every animal should be treated for fleas  not just for the animals but for the employees and visitors. The perception could be that it is a waste of money to treat because some will be euthanized.  I do want to say that I am not bashing the employee's as they operate under the guidance and resources provided by the director and county. The director needs to be open to ideals and change so this shelter can operate to its highest potential. People have offered to volunteer but are told they are not needed. Other shelters have people to network their animals taking pictures and sharing information on the animals. Social media could be a huge benefit in reuniting lost pets and owners and also in getting animals adopted. It is inhumane not to accept help for these animals when there are people willing to step up. Why should our county continually be so antiquated and make excuses why changes can not be made. We would like for the shelter to embrace volunteers and work together as a community to resolve some of the problems.  Animals are God's creatures and need to be protected from abuse.   If you agree that change needs to be made please sign and comment.
