Adopters Welcome!

Walk-ins Welcome with No Appointments Required

The Kentucky Humane Society is no longer requiring appointments for potential adopters looking to adopt companion animals.

Potential adopters can stop by the KHS East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane or the Sam Swope Pet Treatment & Lifesaving Center (also called the Main Campus) at 241 Steedly Drive during normal business hours. East Campus is open for adoptions Monday-Friday 10am-6pm and weekends 10am-5pm. The Main Campus is now open for adoptions seven days a week as well: Monday-Friday 11am-5pm and weekends 11am-4pm. Adoption counselors are happy to assist families in finding their perfect pet match. Masks are not required but are strongly recommended for visitors who are not vaccinated.

Hurricane Pets Going Up for Adoption

Earlier this month, the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) took in over 60 shelter animals from Louisiana communities ravaged by Hurricane Ida. Starting Thursday, September 16, some of the Louisiana dogs will be ready for adoption. Some of cats will be ready for loving homes starting on Friday. To help these deserving pets get great homes faster, KHS is inviting adopters to choose their adoption fees.

During our Adopters’ Choice special for hurricane pets, families are invited to choose their newest furry family members and then choose their adoption fees. Adopters must pay applicable pet licensing fees. Animals who are part of this special will be identified with “Hurricane Ida” after their names. The public is encouraged to check the this page often to see which animals are available and at which adoption centers. More animals will be added daily. More info


Adoptable Cats

Please click on the photos of cats you are interested in below for more information. This website is updated in real time; when an animal is adopted, they are removed from the site, and newly available animals are added throughout the day. We ask for your patience while we transition away from COVID restrictions. Thank you for your understanding!
