The Kind News is our largest educational program and we are proud of helping educate our youth in humane educational values.

Who We Are
A Voice For Animals (AVFA) is a Kentucky, nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) animal welfare organization. This organization was created by experienced, responsible pet owners and animal lovers who believe that rescuing, fostering, and adopting homeless animals is not enough. We must educate the community in responsible pet care, as well as, find forever homes for our rescues. Through humane educational programs, we hope to promote increased protection and quality of life for animals in South Central Kentucky.
The importance of spay/neuter cannot be stressed enough and our motto is "Spay Day, Everyday!." In addition to proper pet care and the importance of spay/neuter, we believe that education is key to dog bite prevention and preventing cruelty to animals and human violence.
We do not have a shelter facility and all animals rescued by our members are in foster care. For that reason, we are limited in the number of animals we can rescue to the number of available foster homes. While we are not rescuing, fostering and placing large numbers of animals in new homes, our adoption policy is designed to result in forever homes with the first placement. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help with our mission, please mail it to 1765 Pleasant Hill Road, Bowling Green, KY 42103. Thank you!
Adopting a friend
We charge an adoption fee for all of our pets. We strongly believe that something free may not be valued highly. Our fees depend on the amount that we have invested in that animal. All pets are spay/neutered and brought current on shots before adoption. Cats are FIV and FEL-L tested and dogs are heartworm tested if they are old enough. Generally our fees range from $25 and up. We require an adoption application be completed with references, especially a vet reference. We also perform a home visit at the applicant's convenience. We try to find a good match for the pet and the applicant. Just providing shelter, food and water is not enough. We do not adopt any dogs to be yard alarms. We are looking for inside homes, primarily, for our rescues. We do not ship our pets by air.
Our Adoption Package includes a Petco Coupon Booklet .
