Kayla Denney always knew that she wanted to dedicate her life to fighting for animals. However, when she was left in charge of the Shelter in Taft, Texas; she knew it would be one of the most difficult tasks in her life. The place was a complete mess and hundreds of dogs were arriving to spend their last days before being sadly euthanized. Making a difference would not be easy.
Wednesdays were the days when they ended their lives. It was terrible.
To begin with, there was no electricity in the entire building. There was a single hose for cleaning the cages. There was only something in large quantities and it is linked to the lethal chemical with which they “solved” the problem of the huge number of dogs that kept coming. It was just outrageous but Kayla was the person to make this all come to an end.
The animals looked very sad. Even the building looked unwilling to do anything. It was time for a change.
From her first day, Kayla met with Police Chief John Cornish and they discovered they had one goal in common: to make the shelter a place where no animals would lose their lives. They drew up a careful plan and since then they have only seen that beautiful dream come true before their eyes.
All dogs deserve a chance.
Kayla managed to make a network of people who were willing to fight for the dogs. She contacted more than 3,000 volunteers who volunteered to provide temporary and permanent homes and many donations. Through social networks you could see the enormous change that she was having in the shelter.
Kayla won the Heroes Anonymous award from The Petco Foundation
This only inspired more and more people to join in this beautiful transformation. The result is a real success: In the five months that it has been administered, not a single dog has received the lethal and unjust injection.
Since November 1, we have saved 565 dogs and cats in Taft.
Kayla receives the thanks of all the furry ones every day, but she has also won important cash prizes that have allowed her to continue giving everything for her shelter. She has big plans to use these funds to make the dogs very happy.
I want us to have a grassy area where they can play and meet the families. It is not fair that all the time they are in cement.
There is no doubt that Kayla deserves this award. Her shelter has been completely unrecognizable thanks to her and the sad expressions of the dogs with a thing of the past.
She shares this note in support of the Taft shelter. No dog deserves to lose his life with an injection without first knowing the love of a family.
