It's Festival time in the Bluegrass and SOAR has several upcoming events and we need YOU to help us out!
Since we are an ALL-VOLUNTEER based organization, we rely on folks to come join us as we set up at events in the counties where we assist chained and penned dogs.
Events are fun, easy and educational. It's also one way we bring in funds to support our mission.
Our first big festival is the Daniel Boone Pioneer Festival
SEPT.5th & 6th. Next weekend. In Winchester, KY.
SOAR has participated in this festival for several years and since we do so much of our work there, we enjoy going back year after year to speak to people about the work that we do.
If you would like to volunteer either day, morning or afternoon shift. Send us a message and we'll set you up. Or call the SOAR line @
Come visit us and take a chance on our Awesome Raffle Basket
or buy some cool SOAR Merchandise!
See you there!
Just a few of our Winchester Rescues, no longer living Chained or Penned.
Diva has found her forever family!
This beauty had so many apps. and inquiries we could hardly keep up! They came in from near and far, and the lucky family drove all the way from Maryland with their three children and their dog Zeus today, to meet Diva and see if it was a match. And it was:)
Right off the bat they wanted to run and play. They make such a great pair with Zeus being all white and Diva with her shiny black coat, and both are the same age, with Diva being one month older. While it's always nice to have them be adopted locally, sometimes the right match is 10 hours away!!
Yes, we still did the home visit and all the checks first. Technology is amazing with face time and google earth. And we'll get lots of updates with her in her new home. She'll even get to go to work with her daddy a few times a week, along with Zeus.
Always a happy day when one of our rescues get to start their new life with a terrific family.
