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

As a private, non-profit animal welfare agency and the state's largest no-kill shelter, the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) finds loving homes for more than 6,500 cats and dogs a year at our nine adoption locations in Louisville and Southern Indiana. We also spay or neuter more than 10,000 local cats and dogs a year - helping reduce the number of unwanted pets.

Thanks to the community’s continued support, we’re making Louisville and its surrounding areas a better place for local cats and dogs 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 here to help you have a better relationship with your beloved pet.
