We took in this boy River late last week. As you can see, he is severely emaciated. He spent the first few days being hospitalized at Tri County Animal Clinic getting fluids, testing, bloodwork, etc. He is now at our Open Arms Animal Shelter. He came with a large vet bill as well. We need to raise around $718 to cover his vet bill. He is doing better but recovery will take awhile. You can donate through our PayPal at, through mail at PO Box 1331, LOUISA Ky 41230, or by calling TCAC at 606-673-1344 or 1144 and saying paying towards the River the emaciated boxer on our account. Please specify however you pay that donation is for River the Boxer. As always, we thank you for your help! Please share!


We got a call about this boy needing help in the Fallsburg area on a Sat eve. He had injuries to one side of his head. Of course we said yes! Upon taking him to the vet, it was determined he had an old injury to the side of his head from either blunt force trauma or hit by a car. He suffered no side effects other than to his eye. Recently, we had to make the decision to remove the eye as it was staying infected and irritated. The bill for the eye removal was $310 and we could use some help with it if anyone can find it in their heart to help. Donations can be made to PayPal at or mailed to the Lawrence County Humane Society at PO Box 1331, LOUISA Ky 41230. Please share and donate if you can! The first 3 pics show him after surgery and the last is when we first got him. Thanks as always.

The Open Arms Animal Shelter has a reclaim fee of $10.00 dollars per day starting
with the day the animal is brought in. All animals are vaccinated and wormed when they come in. Those costs will Need to be paid when the animal is reclaimed. On
the fifth day the animal becomes the Legal property of the animal shelter and
will have to be adopted back which means it will have to be spayed and or neutered plus any other expenses will need to be paid that have occurred.


Please make LC Humane Society your payroll deduction organization with United Way or Combined Federal Campaign.
For United Way write in Lawrence County Humane Society (Louisa, KY); for Combined Federal Campaign put #77458.  Thank You!
