I haven’t been to the Unicoi County shelter in a long time, and I have been feeling a need to get back.

One of the reasons I wanted to visit is the staff at the shelter, and the things I’ve been reading about on social media. Kevin King and those who work with him have been making positive changes in Unicoi, and keeping an eye on the happenings at other shelters and locations to boot.

There have been plenty of things said and heard lately about goings on in the area, and I wanted to see for myself what might be happening in Erwin.

All I can report are positives. Plenty of positives. Positive attitudes, people working hard, animals being cared for in a clean and healthy environment, and good people visiting and spending time. I’d say things are going well.



You can visit the Unicoi County Animal Shelter at 185 N. Industrial Drive in Erwin, or visit online at wcjcanimalshelter.org. You can also call at 423-743-3071.
