Central Kentucky area including Mt. Sterling, Winchester, Lexington and other areas when contacted.
We are a humane society established in 1982 and have worked without a physical facility doing neglect and cruelty investigations and follow-ups as well as rescue and adoptions from the county shelter and directly from the community. We work with a humane society in New Hampshire and transport dogs several times per year in addition to local adoptions. We have just finished building a small shelter/spay neuter clinic. We are located in an area that has a high kill county shelter and we believe the only long term solution is to promote spays and neuters in every way possible.
Our Adoption Process:
Application is online and is required. You may fill out an application here: http://www.gatewayareahumane.com/adopt-form.html. We require a vet reference that can be verified. Large dogs must be going to a home with a fenced yard or on a farm not close to a highway. Contract requires that the animal be returned to us if the adopter can not keep or does not want to keep the animal. Adoption fees vary.
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.
