Make a Friend, Save a Life!
Welcome to the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter (KWAS) website! We are a non-profit organization dedicated to placing abandoned or relinquished animals into appropriate homes and reducing over-population through education and spay and neuter programs. KWAS serves the communities and animals in 4 counties in southeastern Kentucky: Knox, Whitley, McCreary and Clay. We accomplish our mission by working with volunteers, rescue groups, Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio shelters, foster homes and veterinarians. Through our efforts, we rescue and place hundreds of animals per year in well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. We are also a community resource to pet owners by providing information on responsible pet ownership, education and assistance on the critical decision to spay and neuter pets and positive training methods.
Animals for adoption at the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter are posted on our Facebook page at Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter. Go to Adopt a Dog or Adopt a Cat for details on how to view our animals for adoption. Better yet, stop by the shelter to meet them in person. Animals at the shelter are also placed in two local newspapers. The “Times Tribune” will show them in the Around Town section of the paper and the “News Journal” will show them in Wednesday’s paper.
