Who We Are

The Kentucky Humane Society  is the oldest animal agency in Kentucky, largest animal welfare organization and largest no-kill shelter in the state. As a private, non-profit animal welfare agency, KHS has been providing shelter, food and medical care for thousands of unwanted animals each year for more than 125 years.

Thanks to the community’s continued support, we’re making Louisville and its surrounding areas a better place for our four-legged friends and the people who love them.

We do more than you think!

In addition to finding loving homes for more than 6,000 cats and dogs a year, KHS provides the following services to pets and their people:
