The canine residents at the Knox County Humane Society recently received a special gift from their compassionate caretakers – comfy, cozy, oversized chairs! That may not seem like much, but for shelter animals, anything that can make them feel closer to having a forever home means the world. You can clearly see how much the dogs are enjoying their new furnishings! This was truly a beautiful display of love and compassion that certainly didn’t go unnoticed, especially by the animals.

Shelter workers and volunteers surely deserve a lot more credit than they get. Day after day these compassionate people have to make heartbreaking decisions and see incomprehensible cruelty and neglect cases that most of us couldn’t possibly handle. You can help make their job easier by reminding others that adopting a pet is a serious, life-long commitment. The staff at KCHS would love more chairs so be sure to keep them in mind the next time you are moving or redecorating. However, donating supplies or toys, no matter how small, are also a wonderful way to support your local shelters.
