RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) – Linsey Heimer has been nominated for the honor of My Town Hero by Kayla Ernest.

Ernest said Heimer devotes her life to saving stray and abandoned dogs in the Dardanelle and Russellville area. She said Heimer is constantly busy saving, fostering, vetting, and rescuing from the surrounding shelters before the dogs are euthanized. 

“She is responsible for making sure the animals are spayed or neutered and have had a complete health check and certification before they are transported to a rescue in or around surrounding states,” Ernest said.

Heimer raises funds for all of this through donations on Facebook and shares the animals’ stories from beginning to end.
