Review for Focus on Cumberland County Animal Shelter, Crossville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Foccas is an amazing Non-Profit in Crossville, Tn. I have known Jan & Mark Hendrixson for many years from volunteering at the Bread Of Life Mission Medical Clinic. I have never volunteered with such a kind and giving group of people. They try to get to abused and neglected dogs that are tied or chained to trees with no water & food or shelter and work with the owners to get them in a better situation. Through donations and fund raising, Foccas is putting the finishing touches on a new intake building for the Cumberland County Animal Shelter. Dogs will not have to stay out in the elements anymore and the building will have air and heat. They have food and litter drives to help the shelter when they need food. They find homes for dumped animals. They are trying so hard to change the laws in Cumberland County to punish animal cruelty and abusers with stronger penalties than a slap on the wrist. These people are so amazing. If not for Foccas, there would be so many more animals homeless and sick. Whenever there is a hurt animal and the owner can not be located, Foccas gets the animal to the vet and more times than not, ends up picking up the costs, finding a foster and eventually finding a loving home for the dog or cat. They also work with the schools on educating young children on how to care for a pet and not mistreat them. They have helped people build a fenced in area for their dog vs. being chained to a tree. That is not a life for a dog. I have volunteered for many different organizations but Foccas, by far, is the best one. I feel very blessed to be able to help them and get to know all those involved.

I joined this group in 2016 as a non-active member because of health issues with my husband. I volunteered with the Hendrixson's at the clinic at Bread Of Life for 5 years. I had to leave and lost contact. When I found out that they were now involved in FOCCAS, I had to get in touch and see what i could do to help. I have never met a large group of such caring people for our furry friends. FOCCAS is the voice for those furry friends that have no voice. They are all so hard working and will never give up. When there is a need to go get an animal running some where alone, a call goes out and someone is there and rescuing the dog or cat. They work with owners who can not care for their animals anymore. They have done so much for the Cumberland County Animal Shelter. When there is a need for supplies, members go out and get them and deliver to the shelter. it is amazing. I am so proud to be a member and hope some day I can take a more active role.. Cumberland County is so blessed to have a group like this and I hope more people will join and help in the future.
