Donate to animal shelter in memory of previous pets

May 22, 2013 — The editor:

This week, as we remember loved ones who have passed on, I would like to remind everyone not to forget any four legged friends who have passed on as well. 

We as a society are reminded daily of the riches and joy that these animals bring to our lives. Whether it is a dog, cat, or any other cuddly animal, no one can deny the impact they have on us. I know as an Afghanistan veteran, I have my dogs to thank for helping me through some tough times. Whether it is enticing me into a competitive game of fetch, or just a simple sit down in our favorite recliner for a quick nap, the joy that comes from it is a blessing. 

I encourage everyone who reads this and knows where I am coming from, to join me in honoring my deceased beloved friends by donating to the Boyd County Animal Shelter this Memorial Day. From May 26 through June 1, during the second annual “You are remembered” campaign, the animal shelter will display the pictures of your beloved pets in the shelter and, with your permission, post them online for all to see. Just bring a bag of dog food and picture of your pet to the shelter and they will proudly display your pet for all to see how much they were a part of your lives. 

This is a great way to honor your pet and help the many other homeless and abandoned pets that are still in need. You can contact the animal shelter at 324- 0745 for more information. I hope to see you all there and am looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful pictures. You never know, while you are there, you may find another best friend.

  • Be careful of those you trust

    I would like to respond in answer to Charles Wallace's pitiful letter to avenge himself against the “stuff told” by the Health Department in the Eastern KY Voice this Friday. Folks, it’s simple. He has lost two major battles against us “girls” here at the Health Department and we were in anticipation of the third battle starting.

  • Olive Hill Health Department: Raising questions

    During the last health department meeting, information was provided to employees regarding the closing of the Olive Hill Health Department branch, which I had previously asked about. They informed me they did not have the revenue to keep it open. If the health department was not closed in Olive Hill it would be hundreds of thousands of dollars in the red.

  • Get involved with your local chamber

    Are you involved with your local chamber of commerce? Chambers of Commerce are a great way to make business contacts, and even friends.

  • Alcohol sales would hurt Olive Hill

    I am 64 years old and I have lived in the city limits of Olive Hill my entire life. I have seen Olive Hill when it was prosperous and I have seen it when it was not so prosperous.

  • Against liquor sales in Olive Hill

    Along the roadways of our little town, we see signs urging us to vote YES for legal liquor sales in Olive Hill. Sadly, we see no signs urging us to vote NO!

  • In appreciation of Pastor Barrell

    Some members of the Lower Grassy Church of Christ, in my opinion, should hang their heads in shame. On February 23, 2014 a wonderful man of God and their Pastor Larry Barrell was dismissed from preaching.
