Oaklawn cancels Thursday's races

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Oaklawn management made the decision to cancel Thursday’s nine-race card after more than five inches of rain left the track too saturated for racing.

“The safety of the horses and riders is always our first concern,” said Director of Racing David Longinotti. “The rain began about 3 p.m. Tuesday and has barely stopped since.”

Oaklawn remains open for gaming and simulcast racing. The game room will remain open until 3 a.m. 

Live racing is scheduled to resume Friday with a 1:30 p.m. first post.

Court battle leaves dogs in limbo

Court battle leaves dogs in limbo

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Hundreds of Lonoke County dogs are in limbo at the Pulaski County Humane Society. They'll be there until a Supreme Court judge makes a decision. But it's getting costly.

"It's approximately two years, it will be two years, the end of June," said Dr. Teresa Medlock.

Dozens of dogs, 137 to be exact, have been at the Pulaski County Humane Society for the last two years.

They were taken from Sandra Nance's Lonoke County property in 2012 after a search by the Humane Society and Lonoke County Sheriff's Department found the dogs living in poor conditions.

"They are evidence in the court system case and so we're entrusted with their care until the resolution of the case," Medlock said.

Joey helps raise money for LR Animal Village play room

Joey helps raise money for LR Animal Village play room

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Little Rock Animal Village is raising money to build its new Cat Room, and THV's Joey the Garden Cat is on its fundraising team.

The new addition, to be called "Joey's Play Room," would give the cats at the Animal Village a place to get exercise and play, which they can't do very well in the cages they are typically confined to. The main goal of the Joey's Play Room is to give the felines a more active life and make them healthier, but it will also do more than that. With the cats playing at free will, potential new owners can see how they interact with others and how much energy they have. This would be a great way to help people determine which cat would best fit in their family and at their home.
