Dogs of the Month


IVY AND OSCAR are a female yellow lab mix and a black lab mix estimated at 4-6 mths of age. Both came to the home of a lady who is now trying to find a forever home for them. Due to the tight bond between them, they will have to go to one home and will not be separated. Could you be that special someone that will change Ivy and Oscar's world?


JULES is a sweet male Black lab/bully mix estimated at 1.5 yrs of age. Jules came to the shelter as a stray when he was 6 mths of age and he has been with us over a year now. Jules went through 6 wks of basic obedience training and he is doing so great. He is our resident puppy kisser...adores puppies....and he is playing with other dogs along the fence but Jules really thrives and wants all of the attention of an only pet. We all love Jules so much but the shelter is not the place for him to live. Any adopters or rescue who can help him? You must have no small children but Jules is rompy and strong and will knock over a small child and we would prefer he be an only dog just because that is when he is happiest. He is waiting for someone to love. Can anyone help Jules? Have you got room in your heart and home for this awesome boy? Jules weighs 45 lbs and has the build of a lab and the personality of a lab as well.

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:
