“We now do about 100, 000 pounds of food a year going to rural shelters in five states... We also bulk food for natural disasters," Margaret Coplen, one of the volunteers from the organization, said.

Different businesses and community members have offered their services as both a drop off center for donations and cash, including Jeff Wyler Eastgate Auto Mall, Pet Valu - US, Bentley’s Pet Stuff, Milton’s The Prospect Hill Tavern, Fedders Feed, Seed & Pet Supplies, Mahope, The Sandbar, Rosedale OTR and One Starfish Rehoming Connections.

More information on who helped donate and how can be found on the ADCFH Facebook page.

Some bars like Rosedale OTR have offered $1 in donation to the rescue every time a certain beer or cocktail is sold.

As a result, ADCFH was able to send food and supplies to rural shelters in Kentucky who were in need of donations.

Right now, rescuers are giving the thieves time to return everything, but if it is not returned, the rescue plans to pursue criminal charges.
