UPDATE:  Following up on the story we posted on Tuesday, Kellye LeBoff , Director of Jurassic Bark Rescue, shared what is happening with the family she assisted earlier in the week that had been turned out of their home.

They are presently in an extended stay motel for which Jurassic Bark is covering the bill.  The organization has gotten the family connected to a variety of social services and Kellye is now working with them in the hopes of getting their dogs spayed and neutered, although she admits, that particular part of the process is taking some educating.


Facebook friend and donors have been extremely generous in providing clothing for the children and food for the family, but has slowed down considerably.  Kellye has paid for this week’s accommodations out of her own pocket ($475.00), which has been a challenge for her, as well.  That aside, her main concern is the family does not lose the place in which they are presently located.
