UPDATE DECEMBER 27, 2021: The Kentucky Humane Society Main Campus (Sam Swope Pet Treatment & Lifesaving Center) reopened for adoptions on Monday, December 27. We welcome the public to stop by the Main Campus at 241 Steedly Drive or East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane to meet adoptable pets. Both facilities will have shortened hours on Dec. 31 (New Year’s Eve) and will be closed on Saturday, January 1, 2022.
From an earlier post:
To assist shelter animals from tornado-impacted areas, the Kentucky Humane Society’s Sam Swope Treatment & Lifesaving Center (Main Campus) was turned into an emergency hub, and the campus was closed for adoptions until at least Sunday, December 26, 2021.
Pets are still available for adoption at the KHS East Campus located at 1000 Lyndon Lane, and cats will be available for adoption at Purrfect Day Café, 1741 Bardstown Rd., Louisville.
We are working to get as many shelter pets out of Kentucky as possible and into shelters that have space across the country. All the animals we take in were in Kentucky shelters before the storm and were not lost after the storm. The goal is to make space in rural shelters for incoming stray, injured and owner-surrendered animals.

A big thank you to WDRB News for coming out to discuss how KHS is helping Kentucky animal shelters in the wake of the December 11 deadly tornadoes that left a 200-mile path of destruction.
