Thank you for your interest in adopting an Equine through The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS). To ensure that each of our horses finds a permanent and loving home, our application asks several detailed questions that are necessary for the screening process. All information will be kept completely confidential.

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) requires photos showing, at a minimum; fencing, gates, pasture, a barn/shelter photo, and a photo showing the stall if it’s to be used for the adopted equine as well as photos of any other equines owned by the applicant or housed on the property. KHS may ask for additional photos if details are unclear. All adopters must be 21 years of age or older
