APRIL is an adorable little Diluted Calico female who is as sweet as a peach pie!!! She came to the Shelter as a tiny baby and has been at the Shelter way too long. And we don't understand why she hasn't been adopted because she is such a sweet, loving little girl!!!! APRIL would make a great addition to any home and she gets along well with her playmates at the Shelter. Won't YOU give APRIL a loving forever home today?
This is LOGAN and he is just a big "Teddy Bear" of a kitty. Oh my goodness!!!! You just won't believe what a sweetheart this guy is!! He loves attention and loves to be petted--just can't get enough human interaction. He gets along very well with the other kitties who share his room. LOGAN would make a great addition to any family!!
DELAWARE is sporting her gorgeous Fall colors of orange black in true fashion of a Tortoiseshell kitty!! And she’s trying to tell you what a great girl she is too!! DELAWARE came to the Shelter with a litter of kittens, who are now weaned, so she is hoping her own special human will come find her and take her home right away. Are YOU that special human to give DELAWARE lots of love and a forever home?
MISSOURI is an adorable, very sweet girl. She has very unique coloring with her brown & black Tiger Stripe Tabby markings with a hint of light orange spattered on her body and a cute orange stripe up her nose. MISSOURI is our longest resident having come to the Shelter in May 2013. Even though she is a little shy, she loves to be petted. We have no idea why this adorable, loving girl has not found her own special human to love her and take her home. MISSOURI would make a great companion in a home that is a little on the quiet side.

LOLA is a big, gorgeous, short haired Tortoiseshell kitty who is definitely a Princess. She loves attention and she loves to play...but it's kinda like she really doesn't want you to see her playing because she is such a Diva!!! She came to the Shelter with a litter of 4 kittens (our orange Tiger named LINNY is one of her babies); she has raised her babies so it's time for someone to receive her love and attention. LOLA would make a great companion in any home. REDUCED ADOPTION FEE ONLY $40.00!!

Louisa, KY -- A motorcycle poker run, which has been a past fundraiser for the Lawrence County Humane Society and Animal Shelter, was revived Saturday, August 23.
Heavy rains from the storms that swept through the region the afternoon and evening before, was the most likely cause of a small turnout, none the less, several riders participated in the event, helping to raise money for the organization who operates largely on fundraisers and donations.
Registration for the ride began at 10:00 am at the Food Land Plaza in Louisa, where riders were served donuts and drinks, and had the opportunity to meet other riders as well as purchase tickets for door prizes, and a Gatlinburg Vacation Getaway.
Riders drew their first card, then the ride kicked off at 11:00 am, led by local resident Todd Moran, and winded through the scenic Lawrence County countryside of Fallsburg, Webbville, and Blaine.
The first stop and card drawing was at Fallsburg Country Store, where riders had an opportunity to purchase snacks and drinks. The second stop was an area in Webbville known as 'The Wetlands,' where riders stretched their legs and drew another card. The third and final stop on the route was at Ferguson's Market in Blaine where riders enjoyed seeing the store's antiques and unique items, as well as quench their thirst. Some even visited the fancy outhouse! Another card was drawn which narrowed down the poker hands, and it all came down to the final card which would be drawn at the conclusion of the ride.
When the riders returned to the plaza, members of the Humane Society were waiting to welcome them back and lunch was served. The final card was drawn and prizes were awarded.
The rider from farthest away winner was Joe Green, from Charleston, WV. The youngest rider award went to William Copley, 12. The oldest rider award winner was James Allen, over 60. The worst poker hand award went to Todd Moran. Winners were able to choose from several great prizes including restaurant gift cards, flashlights, knives, etc. The best poker hand and grand prize winner of two pair; queens and nines, was Steve Bowen of Louisa, who received a trophy and a $30 gift certificate to Applebee's.
The rain held off, and although the ride was small, everyone had a good time; riding for a good and much needed cause.
The Lawrence County Humane Society would like to thank all the riders who participated, and everyone else who helped organize and sponsor this event. They hope to make it a yearly event once again.
