  • Animal rescue volunteers feel a calling to help

    “Dan and his staff... have made a bad situation as good as it could be,” Magistrate Roger Hartlage told the Fiscal Court on Dec. 20. “The working ethic these guys put out is second to none. They did not stop, and will not stop, until it’s done. I commend you for that.”

    Nobody knew just how big a task faced them at 25 Allyson Lane.

    But on Monday, Dec. 12, Henry County Animal Control Officer Dan Flinkfelt marshaled a few regular volunteers to assist in what one said was a big raid.

  • In recovery: Rescued dogs on the mend

    The 240 animals confiscated Dec. 12 from a puppy mill/hoarding situation on Allyson Lane in rural Campbellsburg have all found refuge with foster homes, veterinarians and animal rescue groups in the region, according to Henry County Animal Control Officer Dan Flinkfelt.

    So far, the majority of the animals have survived. Two cats that were removed from the property died in transit; one was euthanized after it tested positive for feline leukemia, a deadly, incurable and highly contagious disease.

  • Second-round shelter bids rejected

    Henry and Trimble County officials working together to build a new animal shelter were unpleasantly surprised Thursday, Dec. 15, when a second round of bids for the project came in at least $100,000 higher than the amount the counties have budgeted.

    The counties hope to build the 2,100-square-foot, cement block structure for $250,000 on land donated to Trimble County by Republic Services, owners of the Valley View Landfill.

  • Home for the Holidays

    While the Henry County Animal Shelter has been dealing with finding rescues and foster homes for the 240 animals confiscated from an alleged puppy mill in Campbellsburg last week, Animal Control Officer Dan Flinkfelt wants to remind area residents that he and his staff are still handling the routine tasks of running the facility.

    “We’re still spaying and neutering, and still doing everything we need to do” to operate the shelter, as well as going out on calls, as well as dealing with the overwhelming number of animals that were confiscated.

    Celebrate on a budget

    The holidays can be expensive, but you don’t have to break the bank to celebrate. Taking a few minutes to plan your holiday spending can help you avoid taking on debt.

  • One acre at a time

    Nearly all Henry County landowners have some portion of their land in trees.  This wooded portion can be just a fraction of an acre here or there, or it may be a sizeable area consisting of dozens or even hundreds of acres.   In fact, Henry County is nearly 25 percent covered in woodlands, with uses covering the gamut from wasteland to recreation to well managed timber.

  • Count the benefits of buying local

    When shopping runs you ragged, and you think there is no end to the trips to the Big City,” stop and think about the fact that Henry County has many good businesses that may offer just what you need without the hassle.
