The most telling sign of their success was a conscience decision to become No Kill, and then not being afraid of the hard work it takes to achieve it. Even more impressive is that their mission includes the Pulaski Pound:
"The Pulaski County Humane Society office is located in the Pulaski County Animal Shelter & Humane Education Center, which allows us to work side-by-side with Pulaski County Animal Control.
We help provide medical care and other needs to make both PCHS and Animal Control animals as comfortable as possible during their stay at the shelter. Unfortunately, the tragedy of pet overpopulation in the United States even spreads to our small community, so PCHS works to promote the adoption and rescue of these animals.
We do everything we can to help prevent the euthanasia of adoptable pets"
Last week, Angels of Assisi was honored to help support their mission with the arrival of 10 dogs, most of whom came from a puppy mill situation.

We would like to thank the dedicated staff and volunteers in Pulaski County, who are absolutely making a difference in their community. Keep up the good work, and here in Roanoke we're aspiring to follow in your footsteps.
