OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
* To offer low cost, high quality spay and neuter services to the community in an effort to reduce the number of homeless animals.

The Shelby County Humane Society is a non-profit, no-kill rescue located in Shelbyville, Kentucky. "No-kill" means animals stay with us or in foster homes until they are adopted. No animal is euthanized unless it is medically necessary. Our work includes rescue of homeless animals, pet adoptions, a spay/neuter program, The Buddy Bus Transport Program, Chains No More and and humane education. It is our goal to provide these services to the best of our ability in the hope that we can significantly reduce the number of unwanted and homeless animals in our community, as well as educating the public about responsible pet ownership. We gratefully accept donations and any volunteer time you have to offer.
