About Kentucky Pets Alive formerly Shelby County No Kill Mission
About Our Rescue Group...
Kentucky Pets Alive is a volunteer based 501c(3) organization that was originally formed in August 2008 as Shelby County No Kill Mission of Kentucky, Inc. with the mission to save all adoptable animals at The Shelby County Animal Shelter , which was an open admission municipal shelter until July 2014. We assisted the shelter in becoming the first no kill community shelter in Kentucky and helped maintain the no kill status for 6 years by providing the following programs: foster care, microchips for every animal adopted, collars and leashes for transported animals, medical care/supplies to sick and injured, the operation and funding of an inhouse spay/neuter clinic, offsite adoption sites/events and volunteers to assist with the physical/emotional care of the animals. During these six years, over 10,000 animals left the shelter alive.
In August 2014, Shelby County No Kill Mission and the Shelby County Animal Shelter went separate ways. The mission of saving some but not all was not our mission. We changed our name but not our mission. Our new name, Kentucky Pets Alive, continues to reflect our mission: Every Life Matters.
We continue to assist the animals in Shelby County, but we are also assisting other counties who are actively striving to save all adoptable pets. We are now assisting Jefferson, Anderson and Daviess counties. As our volunteer and support base grows, so will our areas of assistance.
