The Shelby County Humane Society is a non-profit, no-kill shelter located in Shelbyville, Kentucky. "No-kill" means animals stay with us or in foster homes until they are adopted. No animal is euthanized unless it is medically necessary. Our work includes rescue of homeless animals, pet adoptions, a spay/neuter program and humane education. It is our goal to provide these services to the best of our ability in the hope that we can significantly reduce the number of unwanted and homeless animals in our community, as well as educating the public about responsible pet ownership. We gratefully accept donations and any volunteer time you have to offer.
The Shelby County Humane Society is a group of people who love animals. We are a society because we share these common beliefs:
We believe it is morally wrong to kill companion animals just because there are "too many of them".
We believe that it is part of the responsibility of all human beings to be kind and take care of animals. Consequently, if there are more animals than homes, we have a responsibility to control the population by spaying and neutering these animals so they do not continue to multiply.
We believe that it is reasonable to require by law that people take care of their animals, which includes providing proper housing, veterinary care and having them spayed and neutered unless they are excellent specimens of their breed and being bred with the intention of improving their breed.
We believe that the humane way to handle feral cats is to trap them in live traps, spay/neuter and vaccinate them to be returned to an area where someone has agreed to feed and watch over the group.
Our vision is to build a state of the art, green facility on the 17 acre Mary Gaylord McClean Campus located at 400 Hudson Blvd in Shelbyville KY that will provide a safe haven for lost, abandoned and displaced animals. Our new facility will be a place where animal lovers can come to see our adoptable companion animals in a beautiful setting which is centered on the physical and emotional needs of the animals and the people who love them.
