Since the foundation of the McCracken County Humane Society in 1951, our mission has been to facilitate and advocate for the humane treatment and welfare of all animals. We vow to educate against animal cruelty and the prevention of overpopulation and confront inhumane practices.
Our purpose at this humane society is to establish and maintain a facility that promotes and provides a healthy, safe living environment for unwanted but adoptable, owner surrender animals. With the generous help of shelter employees and volunteers that selflessly give their time, we commit that these animals are treated as our own and are given the love and attention that they deserve until we are able to place them with a person/persons that can give them a suitable permanent loving home.
The animals that are in our care are walked, exercised, groomed, socialized and provided health care. We do not euthanize simply for lack of space or have any time limited policy for determining animal euthanization.
We believe in celebrating pets and in providing health, well-being and meaningful social change for any animal that needs a home. We strive to be a well-organized, efficient humane society “home” for all of those in need.
