Adopt Dogs


On April 23, National Lost Dog and Cat Awareness Day, Petco Love - formerly known as the Petco Foundation - launched Petco Lost Love, a new, searchable national database that uses patented facial recognition technology to make finding lost pets quicker and easier.

Pets are often afraid of fireworks – resulting in some dogs and cats becoming destructive or escaping and getting lost during celebrations.

To help prepare pets for this year’s Thunder Over Louisville on Saturday, April 17, the Kentucky Humane Society has a number of tips for owners.

This year’s Thunder Over Louisville will be spread out in five locations starting at 9:30 p.m. These locations will not be released until the night of the show, but Kentucky Derby Festival officials say they will be in the north, south, east and west of Louisville, as well as in southern Indiana. Officials also say the show will focus more on color and less on loud booms.


Ethan the rescue was adopted by his foster family on March 10, 2021! Watch the adoption celebration on Facebook Live.

Ethan was dumped dying at the Kentucky Humane Society on January 29. But against all odds – Ethan, whose name means "enduring" and "long lived" in Hebrew – not only survived, but he is now a happy, healthy dog who has become a symbol of hope and love for so many.
