Our priority has always been to provide the safest and most conducive environment for animals to find homes.

  • We have found limiting visitos has resulted in drastic improvement in animal health and behavior
    • Less visitors = Less stress on the animals
    • Less visitors = Less sick animals
       
  • We are focused on individuals entering the adoption process and those actively seeking to adopt.
     
  • All adoption paperwork and visits with the animals must begin 2 hours prior to close at our Everyday Adoption Center, located inside PetSmart in Hamburg, and 1 hour prior to close at our Main Adoption Center, located at 1600 Old Frankfort Pike. Click to view complete hours/location information here
     
  • Have children? No problem. For your safety and the safety of the animals, we may ask to meet with our adoptable animals in smaller groups before meeting as a full family. If you have more than 1 child, please plan to bring 2 adults. 
     
  • Want to adopt? Great! No appointment is required. We do ask for you to know which animal you would like to meet before visiting our Everyday Adoption Center at PetSmart in Hamburg. You can view all the animals currently available to adopt here. Our Everyday Adoption Center can be reached at 859-264-1742 with any questions.
     
  • Those interested in adopting will be asked to fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire prior to meeting an animal. You must be completely approved for adoption before meeting the animals at our Everyday Adoption Center. You are welcome to print and complete the pre-adoption questionnaire before your visit to bring with you. At this time we are not able to approve adopters via email or social media.
     
  • Only 4 customers at a time will be allowed in the kennel area at our Everyday Adoption Center, located inside PetSmart in Hamburg, and staff at our Main Adoption Center, located at 1600 Old Frankfort Pike, will monitor the number of visitors and regulate as needed. If we are at capacity, you may be asked to wait in your car.
