This precious girl needs a furever home and she is waiting on you.  Meet Opal Y'ALL!

They THINK Opal is a 14-week old beagle/dachshund/lab mix.  She and her brother were pulled from a neighboring shelter. Unfortunately the evening they came home, the brother was diagnosed with parvo and died.

Opal also came down with it but she recovered and she is full of spunk. Opal is still taking some meds for some parasites but other than that, she is quite healthy. Opal is not house trained. She loves, loves, loves other dogs. She loves toys. She is a little shy and is not really too sure of people. With love, patience, and positive attention, she will overcome this. And the leash…well, that thing can go you know where. Since she’s not mastered the leash yet, she will need a fenced-in yard to keep her safe.

Opal is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. If you are interested in Opal, please go to and fill out an application.

Reid's Orchard is one of our family's favorite places to just go and hang out whether we're picking apples or playing in Reidland. I recently visited and they had some cute new furry faces.

Owensboro Cat Think's He's A Person FOR REAL!

Let's be honest you're either a cat person or you're not. Cats are fickle and funny but we found an Owensboro cat who thinks he's a person. We think you'll love him.
