No-kill shelter looking to start

Greensburg Daily News

Greensburg — Chris and Brianna Ramey are attempting to open a no-kill animal shelter named “Lucy’s Rescue Center” in Decatur County.

The rescue would never use euthanasia, regardless if an animal is unable to be adopted, or does not receive any potential adopters.

The shelter would be a 501(c)3 organization, and the Rameys have started fundraising and plan on working with local rescue centers.

Lucy’s Rescue Center is looking for monetary donations, pet beds, cat litter, grooming products, toys, cleaning supplies, dog crates, dog houses, kennels, land and a building. Eventually the shelter will need volunteers.

“We are searching for a building or a piece of land that we will build on,” said Brianna Ramey.

She implored anyone who'd be willing to work with the Rameys on lower rent for land or a building to contact them at

“We are very excited to do this for the animals,” said Ramey.

The Rameys said they plan on beginning with dogs and cats; their goal is to reduce the county euthanasia rate. They wish to give all animals a second chance at finding a “forever home” with a loving family.

The Rameys can be contacted at
