81 cents of every dollar generated goes directly to fund pet programs and services at KHS. We rely solely on donations from private supporters to care for thousands of needy dogs and cats each year.
KHS has been awarded the highest possible rating by Charity Navigator, the nation’s leading independent evaluator of non-profits. KHS is one of only nine non-profits in Kentucky and the only animal group in Kentucky or Indiana to receive this four-star rating.
As a private, non-profit organization, KHS receives no state or federal funding from any entity and relies upon the support of private individuals, organizations and corporations to continue our mission.
No, we will not sell, give or trade a donor's personal information to any other entity in existence unless we receive written permission from the donor or, lacking that, provide donors with an easy and user-friendly way to opt out of having their information sold or traded.
At the Kentucky Humane Society, we support the Donor Bill of Rights, as approved by many organizations including the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
All you need to bring is yourself! If interested in participating in our volunteer membership program (which is optional), please bring $25 in cash or check or you may pay via credit card.
The volunteer membership program is an optional program for our most dedicated volunteers. As a volunteer member, you receive discounts for programs and services offered by the Kentucky Humane Society (adoptions, behavior training, pet resorts and more), a KHS pet calendar and other exciting benefits.
As an adult volunteer, it will depend on which volunteer programs you select for participation, as some opportunities require training and a time commitment, while others do not. This is discussed in more detail at the orientation. As a student volunteer, you are asked to volunteer 2 hours per week for a four-month period. As a junior volunteer, you will be asked to volunteer at least 3 hours per month with a parent or guardian for a 6-month period.
