Sky is a member of our adoption ambassador program. As part of our ambassador program, some of our feline and canine friends have the opportunity to live in foster homes. This allows our staff to learn more about each animal's individual personality and needs, while they are in a more comfortable living space, outside of the shelter setting. The goal of the Adoption Ambassador program is for these foster animals to be adopted directly from their foster home.

If you are interested in meeting Sky, please first submit an online adoption application located at Once we have received your adoption application, our foster team will follow up and provide you with more information.

Meet our big, beautiful potato Sky! Sky is a six-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier/Retriever mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society when her owner became very sick and could no longer care for her. When Sky arrived at KHS, she had a hard time settling and became rather depressed. When our staff noticed that the 84 lb cutie had stopped eating, we decided to send her into a foster home to help her out. In Sky's foster home, she is the perfect dog! She loves playing with toys, especially toys like Kongs and plush toys that squeak. Sky's foster parent says she is completely house-trained, does great being left alone and is never destructive. She mostly wants to lay on the couch or in her person's lap. In Sky's former home, she was jealous of the dog in the home and chased the kitty friend. Because of this, she needs a home where she can be the only pet. Sky also needs a home with kids ages 15 and older. Could you be the one for this gorgeous girl? Sky is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Owner Surrender:
I came to the Kentucky Humane Society because my owner could no longer care for me. I miss being in a home and have a lot of love to give.

Dog of the Day:
In October, Neil Huffman Subaru and Subaru of America are donating $100 toward the adoption fees of select dogs at the Kentucky Humane Society in honor of Subaru's "loves pets" month. One dog a day will be chosen to be added to this special. Because of this, Sky's adoption fee is $100 in October. Adopters in Jefferson County are responsible for $10.50 licensing, and donations are gratefully accepted!

Sponsor An Animal

We need your help to care for the thousands of dogs, cats, and horses we take in each year. The Kentucky Humane Society saves every adoptable animal and provides them with food, shelter, spay/neuter surgeries, medical and behavioral assistance and then finds them loving homes. Your sponsorship of a special animal will help us save more lives! In addition, you can choose to Sponsor a Animal in honor of a loved one (two-legged or four-legged).

For a sponsorship of $250 or more for a dog or cat – or $500 or more for a horse – you will receive a photo and information about your special animal. Learn more about the Sponsor a Animal program.
