“It wasn’t just to have a small building,” said Arrow Fund president & founder Rebecca Eaves. “It was my dream, is exactly what’s happening. It is the Arrow Fund Animal Rescue Complex. It is a way to educate the public to come out and see what we do. Come out and adopt these animals.”

The group still needs to raise $850,000 to meet their $1.5 million goal.

The complex will be is scheduled to open next summer in Jeffersontown, and will have more space and resources to help abused and neglected animals.
