A “Fur”ever Home
By JAMIE PATTERSON
Doris Campbell has opened her home up to hundreds of guests, many with big names like Oprah, Sonny and Cher.
Oprah’s best friend, Gayle, even moved in with the Campbell family after her short stay tugged at a few heartstrings.
But don’t get those autograph books ready because all of Doris’ four-legged guests are treated like celebrities at the Campbell homestead.
“I give them all nicknames so I can remember them better,” Doris said, rubbing the head of eager dog. “I had four at one time that I had to name Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel.”
Doris, who lives in the Nod community, has transformed her property into a safe haven for animals. Working with the Community Animal Rescue and Adoption Inc., a no-kill animal shelter in Clinton, she serves as a foster shelter for many animals who are waiting to be adopted.
A former barn has been remodeled into a hospital area where many abused and injured animals are treated. A few arrive from concerned neighbors and friends, but many are brought by Doris herself from Dumpsters and other places.
Known as Campbell Junction, Doris and her husband Billy have opened their home and hearts to hundreds of animals.
