Birthday Parties

Host a Purrrfect Birthday Party for Your Kid!

Humane society birthday party for kids

The Kentucky Humane Society offers birthday parties to help your little animal lover celebrate their special day! It's sure to be a bow-WOW good time!

Intended for children ages 6 to 12 years old, each birthday party lasts 90 minutes.

  • 1-15 children $200 ($175 is tax-deductible)
  • Maximum number of children, 15. We cannot accommodate parties of 16 or more children.
  • Maximum number of adults, 8
  • Due to space limitations, animal visitation during parties is for child guests only.
  • Due the success rate of our spay and neuter efforts, KHS does not guarantee that puppies and/or kittens will be available for your party’s animal interaction session.  All efforts will be made by our shelter staff to include them when available.

Each party includes:

  • Decorations, tablecloths, plates, forks, napkins and Capri-Sun
  • Animal visits
  • Pet-related craft for each child to make and take home

Parties are available at the East Campus in east Louisville. 

Schedule your child's party with our furry friends TODAY! Call (502) 515-3145 or email [email protected] to reserve your party. Full payment is required when making your reservation.

Parties are offered on Saturdays during the following times:

  • 12:00 - 1:30
  • 2:00 - 3:30
  • 4:00 - 5:30

 Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance on a first come, first serve basis. 

Due to the active use of peanut butter at the shelter and adoption centers, we strongly recommend children with severe peanut allergies not attend birthday parties.



"This was the least stressful birthday party I've ever given! We showed up with the cake and loads of donations, and the Kentucky Humane Society did the rest!  The children were always entertained and learned valuable information that many would have never learned.  Many of the children, as well as the parents, have already asked if we're having the party there again next year.  The answer every year will be YES, until KHS tells us we're too old! Definitely TWO THUMBS up!  Keep up the great cause!"

"Our daughter’s birthday was wonderful. When she got in the car on the way home she said, “That was the most awesome birthday party ever!” KHS did a great job with everything!  Thank you for making Lauren’s special day extra special. I’m sure it was a party she will never forget."

Thanks to all at the East Campus location for a great birthday party! Our party hostess was super with the kids and the party room was adorable. The entire party planning and execution was so easy. Before I even had a chance to ask my daughter if she had fun, she said she wanted to have her party at KHS again next year. Great job!!!
