Special thanks for 5K Run/Walk support

CORBIN — The 5K Run/Walk for Homeless Animals on Sept. 22 was a huge success!

Special thanks to all of the sponsors and participants who made it possible: The Times-Tribune, News Journal, Barbourville Advocate, and Sentinel Echo, the radio stations, the Runners Shop, Owens Auto Shop, Angie Singley and Candace Cornett from the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Center, Community Trust Bank, Sav-Rite pharmacy, Hometown Bank, Mike’s Mini Barns, Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co., Tom Blair and State Farm, Tri County Cineplex, Brentwood Pharmacy, Gina Paul and the Whitley County High School Cross Country Team. Special thanks to Dr. Michael Culver and the Williamsburg Veterinarian Clinic, Dr. Castle and the Tri County Veterinarian Clinic, and Dr. Tammy and Mark Smith and Knox County Veterinarian Services. Special thanks to Corbin High School for letting us start the event at the track, and to Chris Jones and the Falls Road Runners for all of their help. Thank you to everyone for your support.

The shelter appreciates any help for animals in need, and this event helps raise funds to provide a temporary home for them while they wait for a permanent home. We are excited to have another event next year, same time and place. Hope to see you all there!   

Thank you so much for helping homeless animals.

  • Our representatives should co-sponor the PAST Act

    As a horse lover and Kentuckian, I support H.R. 1518/S. 1406, the PAST Act, which will reform the federal Horse Protection Act to end the abusive practice of soring walking horses for the sake of an exaggerated and grotesque gait.

    This letter is written in support of a letter to the editor written by Linda Lee Adkins about the upcoming Whitley County Sheriff’s election. There is a great problem that has and continues to plague Whitley County — drugs!
