Fire Destroys Shelter

For ongoing updates, please go to our Facebook page

The Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter experienced a devastating fire at about 10 p.m. on Friday, November 29, 2013. The fire completely destroyed the shelter. Fortunately many of the dogs were saved, but sadly most of the cats perished. We believe we have homes for all the dogs.

What we really need right now is money to help rebuild the shelter. Please make donations (which are tax deductible) to our official PayPal account at

You may also donate at the Forcht Bank in Corbin and London. The Corbin branch can be reached at 606-528-3660. The London branch can be reached at 606-864-9500.
