Our Mission

We are a private, non-profit Kentucky corporation, qualified under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Our mission is to save and protect homeless animals through responsible adoptions, to provide humane care for all animals entrusted to us, to advocate for animal welfare, and to enhance the human-animal bond by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people in our community
