A Pulaski graduate has made her way home from North Carolina, fleeing from the hurricane. With her, she’s brought three dogs who she hopes will be adopted soon.
Kaylee Lowery and her 4-year-old daughter Alaina drove 16 hours straight from North Carolina to get to their relatives house in Pulaski.
That drive would be difficult enough with just the two of them, but Lowery wouldn’t leave the animal shelter she volunteers at without trying taking a few extra passengers.
She brought six dogs in total.
“I pretty much just decided that I was going to take them,” Lowery said. “I told the shelter that whoever could fit in my car they were going to ship with me.”
By bringing the three dogs all this way, it gives them a chance to one day be adopted.
“My biggest concern was the dogs and my kid and get them out of there alive,” she said. “What else do I have to come back to? Everything else is replaceable.”
Lowery plans to stay for at least two weeks before deciding when to load up the dogs again and head back to North Carolina.
