Meet our special foster: Carolyn Slater -- Thursday October 15th, 2020

Carolyn Slater does a great job of fostering for Stover Animal Rescue!

Carolyn has cared for animals all her life. She and her husband farmed at their home outside Lincoln and Cole Camp; where she now cares for their remaining pets – a 30 year old and frisky pony named Scooter; his horse companion, Jack; three old chickens, Lassie (the rooster), and his ladies, Vivian and Louise; and four rescued dogs – a miniature Australian shepherd mix (Ben), a beagle mix (Rosie), a small terrier mix (Bruno), and a chihuahua/rat terrier mix (Bud). 
 
After having worked in a thrift shop in Lincoln for some time, Carolyn came to work at the Stover Animal Rescue Thrift Store in June 2019 as a volunteer to help the animals at our rescue. In November she began volunteer fostering for us as well, and is now fostering her seventh and eighth dog, Toby and Max, two Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix brothers. They are sweet and very active little guys; and already have adopters waiting for them.
Fosters are quite literally the life blood of any rescue; and ours is no different. There are always those special needs rescues that just need the extra attention and care only a foster home can provide. We assist with whatever you might need to be a successful foster home and would love to welcome you to our local foster home group!



Free food for your pets! -- Saturday September 26th, 2020

Mobile Pet Food Pantry

Stover Animal Rescue and The Meow Mission organize a Mobile Pet Food Pantry each last Saturday of the month. Please visit our pet food drive-through near the Picnic Shelter at the Stover Community Park. After you’ve filled out the outreach application, we’ll bring your free cat or dog food to your car. You are welcome to drop by from 12:00 to 2:00 PM. Please note: free food is limited to what we have available that day and will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. 

  • Each last Saturday of the month (till November)
  • 12:00 to 2:00 PM, or until we run out of food
  • Picnic Shelter, Community Park, Stover

Thank you donors

Many thanks to our pet food donors that help you keep your pets at home with you. Much of the pet food is from Rachael Ray and Eukanuba, distributed by Leslie Roste, the volunteer Pet Food Pantry Coordinator for Great Plains Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GPSPCA) in Merriam, KS. We are also grateful to several individual donors who bring us a variety of branded dog food when they have extra!

About Stover Animal Rescue

This event is one of the outreach services Stover Animal Rescue offers to the local community as we have available funding. We also provide TNR (trap/neuter/return) of community feral and stray cats. Furthermore, we offer pet supplies and assistance with essential medical expenses (including spay/neuter and vaccines) for community families to enable them to keep their pets during times of crisis, to help with difficult pet behaviors or meeting medical needs.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at our Mobile Pet Food Pantry!
