Saturday marked the beginning of a new chapter for the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter.

More than a year has passed since the shelter’s Woodbine location was diminished to rubble following a fire. But on Saturday, the doors to the shelter’s new building were opened for business.

The days of operating a temporary shelter out of an old tractor repair shop are now in the past for the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter. Now, dogs and cats are housed in a building three times the size of the original shelter that was destroyed.

The new shelter located on Busy Lane in Corbin has space for 55 enclosed concrete block dog kennels, many of which has doggy doors to allow the animals to run in and out as they wish.

Cats will also have their own separate living space to keep the noise of barking dogs at bay, which will result in few nuisances for the felines.

Anyone interested in welcoming a new dog or cat to their family can stop by and meet the animals Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Dogs and puppies have an adoption fee of $65 while cats and kittens have a $45 adoption fee. Adopted animals are immunized and come with a voucher to spay or neuter at no cost at a local veterinarian.
