“Thank you…We can’t thank you enough for your help,” Enid Wallace, Little Hills volunteer, told Geneva Cross as tears filled her eyes. Geneva proudly helped load the bags of dog food to be used to help feed the dogs rescued by the Little Hills of Kentucky organization.

Geneva Cross and other elders of Clinton County Care and Rehabilitation Center wanted to have a dog food drive for this rescue organization after they visited the facility back in February. Arica Collins and Janet Webb came to visit with the elders to tell of how “Little Hills” got started and to relay their goals. Geneva, after interacting with the two rescue dogs that were brought, decided it was time that the home needed to help out.

Elders collected bags of dog food donated by employees for the entire month of March and presented the organization with this surprise on April 11, 2012. Geneva and others want to continue to help Little Hills of Kentucky throughout the rest of the year with more dog food drives and other projects.
