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. 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 us at 502-633-4033 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 on-going 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? Donations may be sent to 400 Hudson Blvd Shelbyville, KY 40065. We are a 501(c)3 organization and donations are tax deductible.
Please contact us to find out when our next one-hour New Volunteer Training Class is scheduled. There is no charge for the class, but those attending are encouraged to bring something for the animals such as dog/cat toys, cleaning supplies, paper towels, collars/leashes, stainless steel food bowls, kitty litter, or laundry detergent. A newly designed Shelby County Humane Society volunteer t-shirt will be available for $10.00. We will discuss types of jobs where volunteers are needed. Pre-registration for the class is required. Contact Nancy Guilliom, Volunteer Coordinator, by e-mail or by calling 502-500-5959.
