A local dog rescue group announced on Facebook Monday that it would be closing at the end of the month. 

No Kill Kern is a dog rescue that was created to help dogs at risk of euthanasia in Kern County shelters.

On Monday, Jennifer Webb posted on NKK's Facebook Page announcing that the rescue would be closing it's doors at the end of the month. 

The post did not give a reason why they were closing, but encouraged supporters to donate to other local dog rescue groups.  

The full post from Facebook is below:

It is with a heavy heart to announce that No Kill Kern Dog Rescue will be closing it's doors this month. We would like to sincerely thank our fosters, volunteers, supporters, and donors. Through their countless efforts we have been able to save over 400 dogs in Kern County during our tenure.

This is something to be proud of as every single one of our followers has been the heart and soul of No Kill Kern.

We encourage your support with other rescues and organizations such as Marley's Mutts, Pet Match Maker, Boxer and Bullies, Critters without Litters, Rocket Dog, Meow, and the Kern County Animal Services.

All of the dogs currently in our care are either in foster-to-adopt homes and they will be adopted or they are needing to be be placed with another rescue. The board of directors and our foster/adoption coordinator have been working diligently to ensure that all remaining animals in our care have been accepted by other rescues.

Again, we thank you for the support and hope to one day see Kern County become no kill.

Jennifer Webb, President of the Board
