Christmas is right around the corner, and the hope is for the now homeless dogs to be able to spend the holiday inside of a warm home, with a family...especially because the rescue has stated that they are "packed," and in "crisis mode."

The dog rescue coordinator wrote:

Would you consider helping us out by writing an article about one or more of these long-timers?

Our goal is to find placements with rescues or adopters for these 10 by Christmas. The dogs are currently located in Morehead, KY but we can work with rescues and adopters throughout the northeast.

The dogs have been kenneled for a good deal of time, with no local interest - right now, the hope is that rescue agencies from outside the area and/or adopters, will step forward to offer hope.

There are a variety of dogs who need a home...Mecala is a shepherd mix who adores people and other dogs - she is described as an "absolute sweetheart."

Frenchie, a 25 pound French bulldog mix, is a deaf dog who loves to snuggle on laps; he can be picky about the other dogs that he chooses to hang out with.

Homer is an 18-month-old, Dutch shepherd mix who has a "great temperament." Homer is great on a leash and he appears to get along well with other dogs.

Flower is an 18-month-old shepherd/hound mix who gets along well with other dogs. She is described as "loyal, loving and well-trained."

There are more dogs in great need of help - click here for the complete list, including photos and descriptions.

Please take a few moments to help make the holidays happy for these dogs. Anyone who can help is asked to please direct all email inquiries:
