We are the Humane Society of Calloway County and are located in Murray, Kentucky, in the Weaks (Senior Center) Building. Here in Calloway, it's the animal lovers who make a difference to literally thousands of animals and thousands of people. We have a motto at the Humane Society: Every time we help an animal, we're also helping a person. Our organization is a non-profit organization with 501c3 status. Office hours are Monday - Thursday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For contact information on particular animals, please contact the number or numbers provided in their description should you need information outside of normal business hours. Or, you may also email us at


All of our animals are in foster care. We have a small foster network where we place animals that are homeless or who have been rescued out of the Murray Calloway Animal Shelter. Our members also participate with dog and puppy rescues and assist animals in need in the community through our E-list and Animal Assistance Program. We will be glad to give you more information on any animal in our care, just give us a call.

All cats are tested for FeLV/FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, spayed or neutered, given flea and tick protection and microchipped. The adoption fee goes back into the program to help support the needs of the next rescued animal.

Our dogs are tested for heartworm, vaccinated, spayed and neutered, dewormed, microchipped and given flea and heartworm protection.

An application for adoption must be approved, interview and/or home visit conducted and a contract completed upon adopting any animal.

Our adoption fee is $50.00 for cats and kittens. For dogs, the fee ranges between $125 and $250 depending on the amount of vet care received. An adoption fee for a puppy or dog is specified within his or her profile.

    The Humane Society of Calloway County is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the animals of Calloway County. We rely heavily on assistance from volunteers and Good Samaritans in the community. Without our fellow animals lovers help, we would not be able to fund our programs and provide assistance to pets and pet owners when it is needed. We urgently need your financial support to continue our programs. EVERY penny that we receive comes from donations and memberships. We promise that your donation will be spent to further our programs. If you would prefer, you may specify which program you would like to assist.
