    This is a bunch crap…There has been a rescue group within the KCHS for many years. Many wonderful animals have been taken to other rescue groups. Quoted “It‚Äôs a feline rescue program,‚Äù said Drenning, ‚Äúand I have some contacts that I started with. Some of these rescue programs, I‚Äôm finding out, tend to be purebred. Unfortunately, we are getting a lot of farm cats around here.” If she was a true feline advoCATe and really was working with feline groups she would have known that information before contacting. She truly is uninformed. Also the Lonely Hearts program was set up for kitties that had been in the shelter for over 6 months not special needs…oh my goodness get your facts together…
