Tell me Something Good: Kenny Chesney Saved 1,000 Dogs' Lives

Thanks to Kenny and Big Dog Ranch Rescue, these innocents can now be adopted!

May 30, 2018

The recent hurricane season wroght devastation on the British and U.S. Virgin Islands.  A successive set of hurricanes, Irma and Maria, led to thousands being evacuated and displaced, and, sadly, thousands of pets were left behind as their families were forced to flee the storms.

Well, if you know anything about Kenny Chesney, you'd know this is something he would not stand for.

And he didn't.

Thanks to his foundation, Love for Love City, over 1,000 lives were saved, as animals were rescued, treated, and rehabilated, and are now available for adoption at Big Dog Ranch Rescue.  And Kenny didn't just lend his fame to the cause, or put his face on a human-interest story for the exposure; he actually paid for the planes and the boats to transport the animals to the mainland.

Says Lauree Simmons, Founder and President of Big Dog Ranch Rescue, "We are just so appreciative that he jumped in to help us, because without Love for Love City and Kenny Chesney...we wouldn't of been able to save these innocent lives."

As if that wasn't enough, Kenny oversaw a documentary about the rescue and it's efforts, which he played on stage in West Palm Beach, FL. at the Coral Sky Ampitheatre last week.

You wanted us to tell you something good...and we feel great about this.  Thank you to Kenny for remembering the defenseless among us who so often get overlooked in times of disaster, and for using your time, energy, resources, and popularity to do some good in this scary world.
