Thank you to Starbucks and Jeffrey Cawood for bringing together several local shelters and rescues to promote shelter dogs and the importance of spay and neutering. Here is the TV coverage of the event by WYMT TV, which features 2 of our adoptable dogs, Tinker (the black and white aussie collie mix) and Lady Jane (the beagle terrier mix).
The Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter has purchased a new building! The 10,000 square foot building on two-and-a-half acres of land is located along Busy Street in Corbin, KY. Renovations have begun and are expected to be completed by late summer. See the Times Tribune article for more details.
Check out the WBIR Channel 10 Knoxville coverage of the Raise the Wroof fundraiser, efforts to secure a permanent facility and an update on animals taken in and saved since the fire.
