Adopting A Friend

We will ask that you complete an application online before arranging to visit the animal.  All our animals are in foster homes.  All our volunteers work full time jobs in addition to volunteer hours weekly for the shelter animals.  After the application has been reviewed and references checked then a visit with the animal will be arranged. You may feel that this is too much to ask just to adopt an animal.  However, our fosters have put hours of care, financial donations above the adoption fee and most important their hearts into the care of these animals.  All our animals were given "a time to live" because a volunteer stepped forwarded during their last day/s at the shelter.  We see animals dumped at our shelter weekly that owners state that they "rescued" or "adopted"  them only to walk away with the once "loved" animal given a death sentence.  There is caution when adopting our fosters because we want them to find their forever home...not one that ends back into a kill shelter.  We want adopters who are ready to commit to the animal for the rest of its life....we want adopters who are ready to love and appreciate the heart of the animal.

Who We Are

A Time To Live is a shelter support group that stands beside the Clark Co. Animal Shelter in Winchester, KY by helping with the needs of the shelter animals. Our volunteers are focusing on decreasing the shelter's population by placing animals in reputable rescues or responsible forever homes.  Volunteers organize events that raise public awareness of the adoptable homeless animals at the shelter.  Volunteers work with rescues and transport shelter animals.  ALL fundraising funds go toward helping the Clark Co. shelter animals.


Monthly Meetings ...1st Tuesday of every month at 6pm.

..Cairn Restaurant (meeting room in the back) Main Street, Winchester, KY



Come Visit Us

We are strictly a foster based organization.  A Time To Live volunteers visit our rural shelter weekly.  Many times our hearts are broken because an animal has not found rescue or a forever home.  The shelter is full and its time is up.  The animals listed on this petfinder site are in foster homes.  They were rescued by A Time To Live volunteers that could not leave them at the shelter.  Please read each bio for contact information or contact info@atimetolive.net
