This female Basset hound was found along a roadside in Casey County, eating the remains of roadkill. Animal advocate Karen Champ said that this dog is typical of what volunteers see on a regular basis.

Without a shelter to take stray cats or dogs, Casey County is looking for an answer. A concerned group of residents is working with the county animal control and with a network of fosters and adoption organizations as a temporary solution.

According to spokesperson Karen Champ, the best, permanent solution would be to construct a new shelter. Preferably it would have a clinic to perform spay and neuter operations, to control animal populations here which could spiral out of control.
