Prior to the flooding of eastern Kentucky, the nonprofit sent supplies to the town of Goshen, which was hit by a hurricane in early July.

Through their volunteer work, the Coplin family found that many families had to hand over their pets because they no longer had the means to support them. Other times, husband and wife discover dogs and cats wandering around lost and shipped to an overcrowded shelter. Oftentimes, contact with their families was never re-established.

“The only thing they can’t lose now is their furry friend, and that’s all they can hold on to now,” said William.

Hours after the flood, the nonprofit posted on its Facebook page asking the community to help fill the truck. Margaret and William said the donations have been consistent but should continue over the next few months, if not years.

“This is going to go on for two years, and we’ll be back there not just once or twice but not until it’s done,” William said.
