We are an open admissions shelter meaning that we turn no pet away. We serve the following counties: Knox, Whitley, McCreary, and Clay. We also serve the following cities: Williamsburg, Corbin, Barbourville, and Manchester.
We are a non-profit organization that relies on donations to keep the doors open. We take in between six and seven thousand animals a year. We have a staff of three full time employees and three part time employees. We are in need of volunteers as well as foster families right now. Our wish list is for dog food, puppy food, cat food, cat litter, leashes, collars, flea shampoo, food bowls, water bottles, water buckets, small plastic baskets used for cat beds, bleach, and dishwashing liquid. There are many more things that we can use but this is what we need the most. Our organization was started in an effort to promote responsible pet ownership and humane public behavior towards animals and to provide a safe haven for stray and homeless animals. To operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes for the preventin of cruelty to animals. We acknowledge the great need for public awareness that promotes responsible pet ownership and also acknowledge the great need for a safe place of refuge for stray and homeless animals.
