K9 Lifeline Rescue (K9LLR), based in Genoa City, is a small group of caring individuals who volunteer their valuable time to work hard in finding homes for dogs, puppies and any animal that touches their heart. They work closely with rural shelters where adoptions are low and are putting animals to sleep because of space, which is always a problem.
K9LLR also helps families who can no longer keep their pet for various reasons (moving, financial, allergies) to find new loving homes for them before they have to take them to a shelter.
To see dogs and puppies up for adoption or for other information, visit the Web site www.K9Lifeline.com.
One message the group would like to spread is that if everyone utilized the procedures of spaying and neutering their pets, this country would not be in this situation. There are many low-cost clinics that are happy to assist families in getting this done.
The group has been at area pet fairs to promote their organization, and to get the public involved and aware. K9 Lifeline Rescue will have a booth at the Burlington High School on April 14.
