Friends of the Shelter is a non-profit 501c3 that began in September 2009 to help the Ohio County Animal Shelter find homes for some of the 2,000 dogs and cats they receive every year.
Many are euthanized because they cannot find qualified homes.
We operate a weekly in-house spay/neuter clinic. This service is thanks in part to two veterinarians who provide surgeries at a reduced cost and grant monies received from national organizations and local sponsors.
We hope this will, in some small way, help decrease the pet overpopulation in our community.
If you would like more information about this service please contact us!
Who We Are
We are a small group of people who devote our time and resources to the homeless, abandoned, unwanted, and abused animals of Ohio County Kentucky.
Thanks to our New York associate, we are able to provide direct communication and transportation to the New England area for our foster dogs.
Contact information is listed in the description for dogs in our ocfriends-NY program. Your new best friend is waiting in Kentucky.
We earn extra cash by recycling empty printer cartridges, used cell phones and small electronics!
Recycle yours TODAY to help raise money for Friends. Call 270-779-0932 or 270-256-3960 for pick-up or to arrange delivery time.
Go green and help us earn some "green" for the homeless animals!
SPONSOR A PET IN NEED
You can help one of our dogs have a better chance of finding a forever home by becoming a part of our FOCAS group.
Friends takes in many harder-to-place dogs that will benefit from having a sponsor for part of their adoption fee or the cost of care.
Having a sponsor allows us to reduce the adoption fee or pay for medical care such as treatment for heartworm or mange. All donations are tax-deductible.
If you would like to sponsor a specific pet or simply donate for any dog in need, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Or, click the PayPal DONATE button below. Every dog adopted through us saves two lives, that of the one finding a home and the next one we are able to pull from the shelter or unsuitable home situation.
Adopting A FriendContact us by e-mail for information on any pet of interest to you. Or, click HERE for our preadoption application. We make every effort to accomodate potential adopters.
