Holly’s Place specializes in giving dogs and cats second chances, but the animal rescue also did the same for Cathy Miller. Last Christmas, Miller’s
dog, Colby, just “woke up sick,” she said. So sick, that Miller, who lives in Lawrenceburg, knew she needed to get him to an emergency clinic in Lexington. “I didn’t get Colby to Lexington in time, and he died in my arms on the way,” she said. “I had so much guilt.”

Miller felt like she let Colby down and that she should have been able to do more for him, she said. “I finally realized that even though I couldn’t help Colby, I could maybe help some other animal,” she said.
