Kentucky Humane Society

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is a champion for companion animals. Through leadership, education and proactive solutions, we are creating more compassionate communities. Founded in 1884, KHS is one of the oldest animal welfare organizations in the nation and Kentucky's largest pet adoption agency. KHS reduces the number of animals in shelters through education, spay/neuter services and adoption. KHS also helps keep pets out of shelters and in their homes through proactive programs, such as affordable veterinary care, dog training classes and a free Pet Help Line, 502-509-4PET. For animals who enter the shelter, KHS provides medical assistance at our Sam Swope Pet Treatment & Lifesaving Center (TLC) on Steedly Drive. Dogs with behavioral challenges receive help at our Sam Swope Pet Retreat, which helps them become happy, healthy and ready for adoption. KHS' Equine C.A.R.E. program assists Kentucky's at-risk companion horses through adoption, gelding and education.
