Kentucky Humane Society

The Mission: The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) advocates the humane treatment of companion animals through leadership and proactive solutions to pet overpopulation, including adoptions, education and spay/neuter efforts. Who We Are: As the state's oldest animal welfare agency, the Kentucky Humane Society has been providing shelter, food and medical care for thousands of unwanted animals each year since 1884. Thanks to the community's continued support, we're making Louisville and the surrounding area a better place for our furry friends and the people who love them.

Adoption Process

It is often possible to adopt your new best friend on the spot...Here is how our adoption process works: First, if you want to adopt a dog, you will complete our Pawsitive PetMatchTM survey. An adoption counselor will review the survey with you to help you find a good match for your family, lifestyle and expectations. Feel free to ask questions you may have about pet breeds, caring for a pet or whatever you would like! Our knowledgeable staff are glad to offer advice and answer your questions. Once you visit with our adoptable pets and select the one for you and your family, you will complete an adoption application. All adoption applications are reviewed by a trained adoption counselor. After approval, you will begin the adoption paperwork, as well as pay the adoption fee and any other applicable fees. At this time, you will also learn about other KHS services that will help create a lasting bond between you and your new pet. Take home your new best friend!
