Be Nugget Kind
[ ˈbē / ˈnə-gət / kīnd ]

Kindness without expectations or limitations, a selfless kindness

At Chicken Nugget and Gang, we operate by our slogan: Be Nugget Kind. Being Nugget Kind is spreading kindness without expecting anything from anyone else, it’s a selfless kindness. To that end, we are celebrating February with Be Nugget Kind Month, where we and our community friends and partners will be taking the time to spread a little kindness across Boone County. We hope you’ll celebrate with us! 

A little bit about our rescue: we aren’t a typical animal rescue and it is not our goal to limit ourselves to being one! The majority of the animals we work with the small, exotic animals, the ones that the Humane Society and other shelters aren’t set up to take. A small portion of our sanctuary are permanent residents who are either too old or have been through too much to adopt out. On occasion, we take litters of puppies or kittens. We also assist with vet bills, pet food, and other unexpected costs that arise for pet owners. However, we don’t limit ourselves to just pet related assistance- we strive to be a support system for the community as a whole, this includes teaming up with other rescues and shelters to get things done! 

For 2024, we are aiming to reach new heights with our rescue, and part of this is funding our need for an adoption and educational center. Help us reach our goal! Every dollar counts.

Have a great February and don’t forget to Be Nugget Kind!

Every year, approximately 6.5 million pets are adopted and then dumped on the side of a road or at a shelter. Of these, 1.5 million will be euthanized due to overcrowding and lack of funding.
