Main Campus Closed - Monday, August 25

The Kentucky Humane Society's Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, will be closed to the public Monday, August 25, for a periodic deep cleaning. This includes Adoptions and Admissions. Volunteer and staff will report as usual. Please visit one of our other adoption locations on this date. We will reopen Tuesday for regular hours.

Our 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

KHS is the oldest animal agency in Kentucky and the largest animal welfare organization in the state. As a private, non-profit animal welfare agency, KHS finds loving homes for more than 6,000 cats and dogs a year.

For more than 125 years, KHS has been providing shelter, food and medical care for thousands of unwanted animals each year. Thanks to the community’s continued support, we’re making Louisville and its surrounding areas a better place for our four-legged friends and the people who love them.

KHS does more than you probably think! Not only are we here to help the area’s homeless cats and dogs, but we’re also here to help you have a better relationship with your beloved companion animal. More about KHS
