Local woman thankful for Unleashed Pet Rescue’s work, surprises them with award & $400

MISSION, Kan. -- A local woman thankful for the work her local shelter is doing in her community is now paying it forward.

Kellie Weaver nominated Unleashed Pet Rescue for the FOX4 award and $400 cash.

Weaver and her husband adopted two Chihuahua mixes from the shelter. Weaver said her family likes to say the doges really rescued them.

"It would be an empty world," Weaver said when FOX4 asked what life without the dogs would be like. "...We'd be lost without our babies."
