Giving hope to the homeless.

In this case, King’s Harvest is reaching out to pets.

King’s Harvest Pet Rescue in Scott County has purchased a building on West Central Park Avenue in Davenport.

The organization plans to open a shelter there later this year.

King’s Harvest Pet Rescue takes in cats at its existing shelter in Davenport.

At the new shelter, they will also be able to provide room for dogs.

In many cases, the people who own these pets are homeless and cannot afford to care for them.

Somebody might have been evicted from an apartment and is living in a shelter where pets are not allowed.

Volunteers help to feed the pets. They keep the pets vaccinated.

They have a low cost spay and neuter program.

The organization runs on private donations and volunteers.

The shelter is no-kill and the goal, if possible, is to re-unite the animal with its owner.

Volunteer Sabrina Witt says it does put a smile on your face because the pets have been given another chance. They have the opportunity to find a new owner and a new home.

In some cases, they are adopted out.

Cats and dogs getting another chance.
