We run an adoption center at Petsmart 4601 Outer loop. Cats are available for adoption 7 days a week and dogs are available Friday from 6 pm-Sunday at 5pm only. You might just find your best friend. Stop by to meet the animals. Even if you aren't looking to adopt, the attention you give them aids with their socialization. Help us help the animals.
ADOPTION FEES for most of our animals: DOGS & PUPPIES- varies, see individual posting, Right now we are having BIG adoption specials on cats and kittens. At this time our adoption fees are as follows: CATS $25 and KITTENS- $75.00
Any exceptions to this will be noted in the PetFinder descriptions. All adoptions require an approved application. All adoptions fees are nonrefundable.
Our adoption fee covers the spay/neuter of the animals, deworming, frontline, current vaccines, feline leukemia test for cats, and heartworm test for dogs over 6 months of age, microchipping and 1 month of pet insurance through Sheltercare. An Adoption Application must be completed for each potential adoption and approved by a shelter representative also an Adoption Agreement must be signed at the time of adoption. The welfare of the animals in our care is of utmost importance. We make every possible effort to ensure that our animals are placed in safe and loving environments.
If you are interested in seeing an animal that isn't at the adoption site we will gladly get you in touch with the foster home, or set up a time to view the animal at one of our adoption centers. You may call the shelter at 502-633-4033 and leave a message for our adoptions rep to call you back, or email firstname.lastname@example.org We will do our best to accomodate your needs to give our animals a new home.

VOLUNTEERING AND DONATIONS
We can always use volunteers in a number of areas such as fostering, education, fund-raising and volunteers to work at our office.
We are always in need of more foster homes. If you are interested in fostering an animal, please call us. The more foster homes we have, the more animals we can save. Since we are a no-kill shelter, we can only make space for new animals when existing animals are adopted, or when we get more foster homes. Won't you please help us help more animals today?
We are in dire need of volunteers for our offsite adoption locations in Louisville and Shelbyville, due to a lack of volunteer support, many dogs go unseen from week to week since no adoption staff is available. We apologize for hours being off at times, and dogs not showing, to help us, please volunteer, complete training for volunteers is available. Without you, innocent animals die. We are also seeking new foster parents, open your home up to a homeless animal, and help them become the perfect pet.
If you are interested in volunteering at the adoption centers or the shelter in Shelbyville, please call us at 1-502-633-4033. You may also send an e-mail to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We need volunteers to work in the office, help us take care of our cats, work with our dogs and to work on fund-raising and membership projects. Please call our volunteer coordinator, Nancy Guilliom at(502)829-9244 if you think you'd like to contribute your time and talents to help our animal friends.
As a non-profit group, finding financial support to enable us to continue our work is an ongoing struggle. There are many expenses involved in caring for the animals we have as well as expenses related to running our organization such as public relations, marketing, education, maintenance of our building and much more. It is very important that we get the word out about our work to raise public awareness and support.
We are currently seeking volunteers to help with adoptions in the Louisville area. The more help offered, the more lives saved. Would you like to make a difference?
