A building in Davenport will be turned into a no-kill animal shelter.

King’s Harvest Pet Rescue purchased a building at 2504 W. Central Park and will be opening it to house dogs and cats.

Director of King’s Harvest, Terri Gleize indicated that the new project was made possible by a man named Coy Bullard, who had a passion for rescuing animals. He provided funding for the building’s purchase.

The new rescue shelter is 6,000 square feet, and the goal, aside from saving pets from homelessness and euthanasia, is to educate the community on the benefits of spay, neuter, and training.

The organization is looking for volunteers to help with some construction in the shelter, and volunteers to help care for the animals. They will also rely on donations to keep the shelter open.

If you would like to volunteer, visit their website and fill out a form for the Pet Rescue. Donations can be made on the website, or they can be mailed to 5837 Wisconsin Avenue, Davenport, Iowa 52806. Please write “Pet Rescue” in the memo line.

If you have questions, you can call 563-570-4536 for information.
