A Pro-Life Shelter 

The WRHS Second Annual Yard Sale is FRIDAY July 25th & SATURDAY 26th at 8 am in the old JC PENNEY building at 531 15th St. downtown Bedford on the corner of 15th & J st. 

We have collectibles, antiques, electronics, furniture, outside items (lawn mower & weedeaters), sporting goods, books, purses, Christmas items, household items, and lots of misc. too numerous to name! We will also have some available animals. 
Come down and support the shelter and help out the homeless animals of Lawrence County and find a bargain too rain or shine! 
Thanks to the Bedford Urban Enterprise Association & Trudie Dillman for allowing us to use the old JC Penney building. 


Meet Jerry, he's a very sweet older boy, who is mostly housebroke and probably would do well if he could be let out more often. He's about 10 years old but is still in good health. He walks well on a leash. He's just a laid back boy that would lay at your feet and just soak up some attention for the rest of his life. Who knows Jerry's story and why he ended up at the shelter but he so wants a family to love him. He has such a sad cry wanting to go to a home. Does he look like he could be your new best friend? Come to White River Humane Society and take Jerry for a walk.

This beautiful girl is India, she is very sweet and loving. If only this sweet little gal could tell us her story, she came into the shelter with the pads on all 4 feet burnt and a large bruise on her stomach. India is a great girl and needs a loving forever home. India likes other cats and people and doesn't seem bothered by dogs. Come to the shelter and meet this sweet girl.
