GPS doesn’t always work so here are directions.

From Clarksburg, take I-79 South to Exit 115.  It will say Philippi -  Alderson Broaddus University.  Turn left onto Rt. 20 South.  Follow this until it splits, then bear LEFT onto Rt. 57 East.  This road will deadend into Rt. 119.  Turn LEFT and follow into the town of Philippi.  Turn RIGHT onto Rt. 250 South (either thru the covered bridge or the bypass) Follow for about 6 miles.  You will pass the WV State Police barracks on the left, then the Philip Barbour High School. Shortly after, you will see a sign for REEVES road on the right.  It is across from Poor Ralph’s country store. Turn onto REEVES, then take the very next road on right.  You are one mile from the kennel at this point.  Go a half mile, then turn LEFT across the little bridge, the sign will say Mt. Liberty.  Go another half mile, and turn left at the kennel sign.

From Elkins, take Rt. 33 towards Buckhannon.  Turn right onto Rt. 250 North, going thru the small towns of Junior and Belington.  Stay on Rt. 250.  You will go past the Barbour County Fairgrounds on the left.  About 2 miles you will see Poor Ralph’s country store on the right, turn left onto REEVES Road and follow the above directions to the kennel.
