Kyler began volunteering at BCASI with his family when he was in elementary school. Over the years, he had helped BCASI with education, fundraising, and newsletter publication. Congratulations to Kyler Heron on his selection as the 2014 recipient of the Carl Coleman Friend to Animals Scholarship.
This is Stitch, our latest Hope Dog. His name comes from the many stitches he received. He is a sweet and humble boy. After recuperating he will be available for adoption.
Blount County Animal Shelter, Inc. (BCASI) was formed in 2002 to address the problem of stray and abandoned animals. Local law enforcement estimated that thousands of stray dogs ran in packs in the rural areas. Our movement was instrumental in the hiring of the first ever animal control officer.
