Pet Lovers United, Inc., is a unique and one of a kind, no-kill animal rescue. Not only do we share pictures of UP FOR ADOPTION PETS THAT WAS ONCE HOMELESS, ABUSED OR THROWN AWAY DOGS, CATS AND OTHER ANIMALS, we educate and inform you of "immediate and/or urgent situations in this area". Not only do we post on facebook and our web site, missing and found pets, we also inform and educate you, the public, on animal abuse, dog fights that are weekly in this area, dog thefts, bad backyard breeders, dog "flippers" and community happenings that keep you informed concerning situations in your neighborhood, county, town or other area. We adopt out animals to "QUALITY" homes, NOT "QUANTITY". Number of weekly or monthly adoptions are of unimportance to us. Quality, loving homes is what Pet Lovers United, Inc. is seeking. We do NOT take any of our animals or animals that we may pull from the local kill shelter to Pet Smart in near by towns and adopt out on the spot. We screen each "POTENTIAL" family/individual for any animal, even if we are only the middle man for the animal. Any person or family, in Madisonville-Hopkins County, Kentucky or out of state is welcome to apply for a pet we may have or the middle man to adopt out. We are a group of volunteers that is trying to save the animals one by one or two by two. Second chance homes with loving person(s) or family is what we are seeking for any and all animals. Pet Lovers United's facebook page is full of pictures of animals up for adoption, missing-found pets and community need to know matters concerning animals. In 2015, Pet Lovers United, Inc. produced a NEW facebook page for "just missing" pets, Missing Hopkins Co & Ky Pets. Pet Lovers United, Inc., was the first no-kill animal rescue around Madisonville-Hopkins County when formed over 25 years ago besides loving individuals rescuing from their home on a one by one basis.

Who We Are

We are a LEGIT 501 (c) 3, no-kill animal organization in Hopkins County. Pet Lovers United, Inc. does not have a building location to house our animals. Therefore, we must place them in foster homes. We periodically board pet(s) in emergency cases (boarding two housebroken dogs at present). When boarding animals to save their life (lives), it requires many donations to pay monthly boarding. We do not receive "free" boarding for our animals. We are all volunteers. We operate off of fundraisers and the public's donations. We warn the public of hazards to the animals in Hopkins County like weekly, illegal dog fighting, dog theft for the dog fights, dog theft for resale to research laboratories, bad breeders obtaining "free" or "found" house pets for their breeding endeavors. We have wonderful inside, outside dogs and cats (all ages, breeds, color and size) plus a list of "barn/farm cats" up for adoption. See pictures on the following page(s). Currently, it is taking $390 per month to care for the animals in our care. This does not include any vetting that may be required by those animals or any "emergency assistance" we provide to animals in the community that may need vetting to help live a happy, normal life with their owner (if we have your assistance). If you are interested in any of our animals, please send all required information requested in "Adopting A Friend" area. This DOES NOT bind you to our animals. You are welcome to back out at any time. Most of our animals are taken to one of the vet offices Pet Lovers United, Inc., chooses to have any necessary work...spay/neuter/shots, given. *Any new pet owner must provide all requested information and you WILL be screened and home visit if we do not know you personally. Remember, Pet Lovers United, Inc. is on Facebook. Since losing our business phone due to the fast slowing of the economy, it has made it extremely difficulty (but NOT IMPOSSIBLE) on our rescue to communicate with the public to get our animals adopted. However, anyone interested in adopting or assisting this rescue, may contact us at our email address at Remember, there are two Belinda Adcocks in Madisonville. The Belinda Adcock that works with animals and this rescue can always be reached at the email address listed. Our Belinda Adcock is NOT the Belinda Adcock listed in the phone directory on McLeod Lane in Madisonville or related to any Adcock in the phone directory in Hopkins County. You may reach our Belinda Adcock at Our web site address is: We, as a village, save one pet at a time. If you would like to send a tax deductible donation since we are a 501 c 3 rescue (all positions are volunteer and no overhead cost). All donations go 100% on the animals up for adoption and/or relocating animals like feral cats to loving farm homes, after being tested for all disease and spayed/neutered. Mail your donation to Pet Lovers United, Inc., PO Box 1701, Madisonville, Kentucky 42431. No donation is too small. We are trying to help families that have lost their job(s) and if you would like to know what type of dog food we need, please contact us today. We have many, many wonderful dogs and cats (inside and/or outside) up for adoption. Some may already be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped!
