The Menifee County Animal Shelter located in Frenchburg, KY is a non-profit volunteer group that operates the county shelter. Before we started handling the shelter, almost all of the animals were killed on-site and buried. A small group of volunteers felt compelled to change this so we began to manage the shelter. We rescue unwanted, neglected and abused cats and dogs that would otherwise be euthanized or left homeless. Our mission is to rescue and dramatically enhance the lives of these animals through community education and by providing high qualify foster care and medical attention, including spay and neuter care, for those animals in need. Working with the community, we strive to change the lives of these animals by matching each pet to the best possible home based on their individual needs and personality. We are very limited in the number of acceptable pplacements in our area due to the large value of animals we serve at any one time - we usually have 70-90 animals and only 9 kennel runs so it is essential for us to work quickly with rescues out of state to avoid having to euthanize our animals.. In the past year we serviced over 1200 animal.

Our Adoption Process:
An adoption form is available on our website (click on adoption form in the heading.) A placement interview is conducted and the proposed placement circumstances are reviewed. There is a small adoption fee for each animal to cover the costs of medical care.
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.
