We serve the Louisville Kentucky area but talk in dogs and cats from other counties in the state. We also adopt outside of the Louisville area including out-of-state applicants.
We are the first no-kill shelter in Louisville Kentucky. Established in 1987, we provide a home-away-from-home atmosphere to our furry guests. We strive to not only place each dog and cat in the most suitable home based on its individual personality and needs but to also help each potential adopter find the dog or cat that best matches what they are looking for while fitting in with their lifestyle. Our dogs and cats stay with us until they are adopted regardless of how long it takes.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our pets can be seen at our shelter located at 12207 Westport Road in Louisville KY any time during our hours of operation - Wednesdays and Thursdays 11am-7pm; Fridays and Saturdays 11am-5pm, and Sundays 1pm-5pm. The shelter is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays as well as on major holidays.
Our Adoption Process:
All adoption fees include the $15 HomeAgain microchip registration fee. Adoption fees for altered canines vary from $175 to $325. Adoption fees for puppies too young to be altered range from $100 to $250. The adopter is also required to purchase a spay/neuter voucher (currently $60). There is an application process (application can be found on the Home Page of our website under the Adopt A Pet tab). We DO call all references and may, at our discretion, require a home visit. Adopters must be 21 years of age. Everyone who lives in the adopter's home (including all dogs if applying to adopt a dog) must visit the shelter before the adoption process can be completed. We never ship or transport our pets nor do we adopt them out as 'surprises.'
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.
