Meet Fern!

Fern came to the Home At Last Animal Shelter in Salvisa, Kentucky, with her mother and eight siblings at only ten days old in the spring of 2000.

They were found in a barrel in a very rural KY community where strays are “controlled” by poisoning or shooting. They have all been adopted, now only Fern and her brother Woodrow remain.

These beautiful shepherd mixes are sweet, though a bit shy of newcomers since they haven’t spent much time off of the sanctuary grounds. They are full of energy, but calm down easily for one-on-one attention. Fern has always been a bit stockier than her siblings and is the most playful.

Home At Last Animal Sanctuary, accredited by the American Sanctuary Association, provides lifetime care for many animals including dogs, cats, pigs, cows, goats, rabbits and a horse, and includes a separate wildlife refuge.

They are a for-life sanctuary, emphasizing the concept of compassion and offering exceptional quality of life for many formerly abandoned or abused animals. Programs include rescue, adoption, educational outreach, low-income spay/neuter assistance, and feral trap/spay/neuter/release.
