About Our Shelter:MISSION:
KHS advocates the humane treatment of companion animals through leadership and proactive solutions to pet over population.
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. To schedule an appointment, please call (502) 636-FIX1 [636-3491].
