Dogs of the Month


BLACKJACK is a male Belgian Shepherd mix estimated at 2 yrs of age. Blackjack came to the shelter as a stray and is a wonderful boy. He is great with the other dogs in his foster home and his foster Dad has been working with him on basic obedience. This boy has been with us for a while now so this handsome boy is anxiously awaiting a forever home. He is so handsome with his solid black plush coat. And he has a great temperament and disposition. What's not to love about this boy? Could you be that special someone that will change Blackjack's world?


LANCE is a wonderful male Shepherd mix estimated at 2 yrs of age. Lance came to the shelter from Lawrence County after he was found running Isaac Park Road in front of the shelter. He was so afraid to be caught and it took a bit to catch him but once we did, he calmed down and now is one of the first to run up for lovings! Lance would make someone a wonderful companion and a large yard to run and play in would be ideal for this boy. Have you got room in your heart and home for Lance?

Cats of the month

LOLA is a big, gorgeous, short haired Tortoiseshell kitty who is definitely a Princess. She loves attention and she loves to play...but it's kinda like she really doesn't want you to see her playing because she is such a Diva!!! She came to the Shelter with a litter of 4 kittens (our orange Tiger named LINNY is one of her babies); she has raised her babies so it's time for someone to receive her love and attention. LOLA would make a great companion in any home. REDUCED ADOPTION FEE ONLY $40.00!!

LINNY is a big gorgeous orange Tiger Stripe Tabby. He was raised in a foster home until he was several months old and then brought to the Shelter. But he has been here way too long and he needs to find a loving forever home right away. REDUCED ADOPTION FEE ONLY $40.00!!

Funding And Volunteers Needed!!! ASAP!!!

We are in terrible need of funding and volunteers for the running of the shelter. We are always over budget and it is hard to continue at this rate. If the shelter would ever close, there would be NO SHELTER for these animals in the near future. These animals will be taken to another shelter with a much lower adoption rate. If you can help us in any way, please contact the shelter before 3PM Mon-Fri at (606) 673-4509 or after hours/weekends, call Kim at 606-638-0512 or Email:

Foster Homes NEEDED!!!

We are in DESPERATE need of foster homes for both dogs and cats. There is a great need for foster homes for adopted animals awaiting transports to their new homes. All of the animals in foster care are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and dewormed. If you are willing to foster a dog, cat or even a litter of kittens or puppies, please call Kim at 606-638-0512 or Email: for more details.

SAVE AN ANIMAL!!! BE A FOSTER PARENT TODAY!!! Even if you cannot foster or adopt one of our pets, but you would like to do something to help, you may sponsor any pet on our website for a sponsorship fee of $25. This fee will be used to feed, house and provide any veterinary care the pet may require.
