Barbourville Nursing home residents had a little extra company on Friday. The Knox-Whitley animal shelter hosted an adoption event at the nursing home where the residents got to play with the animals while they were also up for adoption.

“We brought three dogs today and one got adopted,” said Brandi White, a volunteer for the Animal Shelter, Friday at the event. The nursing home was also thinking of adopting Friday.
