Adopting A Friend



There are thousands of animals that are in of a caring and loving home.  These animals have done nothing wrong, but some how they have ended up with no family, and no place to go.  Adopting an animal from the Owensboro Humane Society gives hope for more animals, as we adopt our animals out, we can provide shelter and care for more abandoned animals in the Owensboro area.


Our goal is to place animals in a happy and healthy environment and that this placement be for life. As the temporary haven for these homeless animals, we take our responsibility very seriously. Our caretakers spend many hours with the animals and can assist you in choosing an animal that will enrich your family life and who in turn will also have an enriched life themselves.


When you adopt from the Owensboro Humane Society, you are saving a life.  Not only have you saved a life, but you have also made a friend with the Owensboro Humane Society, and we will be with you every step of the way when it comes to your animal.  We can keep you informed on social events for you and your animal, offer you training classes and free nail clipping clinics.  We want you and your animal to grow together, play together, and trust each other so that you can live a long and happy life together.
