Millie came to the Bollinger County Stray Project like too many others: in pitiful shape. One hot and muggy morning in May 2013, the local veterinarians came to work to find a homemade crate, made with a small dog playpen and strapped to two pieces of particle board. The “pen” was set in the(…)

The BCSP has designed a simple adoption contract. We have a great selection of quality pets and prices for their adoption are very reasonable. Our Pets
Donations of any amount are most appreciated and all proceeds go toward the care and medical needs of pets we care for, and seek loving homes for. Donate

When you support our partners, you support BCSP! Please show your appreciation of their sacrifices which have helped us in our efforts.
Volunteers in the community willing to foster animals until permanent homes can be found are the best resource we have! These unpaid heroes take pets into their homes and provide care and a loving environment for absolutely no monetary gain.
The volunteers who pick up abandoned animals and care for them, or transport dogs to new homes, vets or foster care, are not paid for their time, gas or mileage. They are true humanitarians who need your support!
