The Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter is a 501c3 registered non-profit organization located in Corbin, Kentucky, and dedicated to placing abandoned or relinquished animals into appropriate homes. We accomplish this 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.
The Knox Whitley Animal Shelter will gladly work with you to help you determine what animal will best match your needs and wants for your future pet. We can help you think through your options for breed, size, temperament and age of the pet. We can show you the pets we have available for adoption to see which matches your needs the best. Once you have selected a pet to adopt, you then complete a short screening process, which includes a discussion on your plans for providing an adequate home and care for your new pet. Finally, we will work with you to make an appointment for your new pet to be spayed or neutered, if the animal is old enough.
