Henry, Spencer and Trimble Counties
Founded in 1884, the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is the oldest and largest animal welfare agency in the state thanks to private supporters. As the area’s number one resource for pets and pet services, KHS is dedicated to improving the welfare of companion animals in our area.
As Louisville's only private, non-profit animal agency that also is open admissions, KHS chooses to accept any and all animals in need. Through adoptions, education programs and spay/neuter efforts, KHS offers proactive solutions to the pet overpopulation crisis in our area.
Donor support and special fundraising events enable KHS to continue sheltering and providing care for thousands of needy, unwanted animals each year. We do not receive any state or federal funding from any entity, nor do we receive any funding from the Humane Society of the United States or the American Humane Association.
In addition to campuses in Jefferson, Henry, Spencer and Trimble counties, KHS also has seven Feeders Supply adoption sites and multiple behavior training locations all over metro Louisville.
The Kentucky Humane Society also has a full-time spay/neuter clinic in Louisville. As the region's first clinic of its kind, the S.N.I.P. Clinic's high-quality, high-volume approach is a milestone, as the area's first program large enough to successfully combat pet overpopulation by having the singular focus of providing affordable spay/neuter surgeries for low-income individuals.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
