Volunteers at work in Adair County

The newly organized Green River Animal Welfare League, is entering the phase where it can accept donations. "GRAWL", an easy-to-remember acronym for Green River Animal Welfare League, is a non-profit, all volunteer organization working to bring a much needed animal shelter to Adair County.
The group's mission is to provide humane shelter for unwanted, abused or neglected animals and to promote public education regarding the appropriate care and control of animals.

Since the organizational work first began earlier this year, people have been forming opinions and sharing them. Some misunderstandings have come out, such as when one member noted that shed been asked if this were the group in favor of gun control. Dr. Rexroat pointed out that there will be much communication in the first year, some right, yet much in need of clarification. Thats why attendance at the monthly meetings are so important.

GRAWL is open to the public and will meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. in the lower level of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce building on Burkesville Street. Mail your ideas and/or donations to: P.O. Box 370, Columbia, KY 42728.
