Proudly Feeding American Journey

Kentucky Humane Society feeds our animals American Journey by Chewy. And every dog and cat adoption comes with a free starter bag, which helps set them up for a smooth transition into their forever homes.

We Can Hold an Animal for You!

Unless there is an adoption special involving the pet, a hold may be placed on a cat or dog with a $25 hold fee, paid by credit card, cash or check. The hold is valid until the close of the following business day. This $25 hold fee is in addition to the pet’s adoption fee and is nonrefundable, even if the adopter decides not to adopt. Holds may only be placed during adoption hours. No holds will be placed within an hour of the posted closing time for the adoption center.
