About Breckinridge County Animal Shelter

We are a small, rural Kentucky shelter with only 16 runs so adoptions and rescue are extremely important to us. The dogs and cats we take in are very well cared for under our supervision. Owner surrenders are immediately available for adoption. Any dog picked up as a stray must be held for the state mandated five day stray hold period before being released for adoption.

We also attempt to temperament test all dogs to ensure they are adoptable in regard to getting along with other dogs and even the shelter cat. Of course, dogs can behave differently, based on their environment and other factors. Our limited ability to spend long periods of time with each dog won't guarantee a dog doesn't or couldn't have "issues" going forward.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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.
