The Woodford Humane Society was incorporated as a 501c3 non-profit organization in 1975 and has operated in its current location since 1981.
Our open-door policy means that we accept all owner-surrendered animals in need, regardless of their temperament, health, origin, age or breed, so long as space allows. We receive over twelve-hundred animals each year from locations throughout Kentucky and other states.
We take pride in caring for each of our animals as individuals and strive to make their living conditions better each day rather than allowing their personality, training and love for life to deteriorate.
We are home to more than two hundred animals at any given time. Adoptable animals are held at our facility or in foster homes for as long as health and behavior permit. We have no time limit for adoptable animals to find their new home.
When animals are turned in to us, we ask the relinquishing owner to fill out an information form about the animal in order to help us get a clear picture of the animal. In addition, we employ temperament testing on dogs in order to assess each dog’s personality so we can do our best to match them to their ideal home. We also use a three-page adoption application that helps us identify issues that could prevent a successful adoption.
Adoption fees vary depending on the season, but generally, the fees range from $20-$70 for cats and kittens, and are $60-$140 for dogs and puppies. The adoption fee includes the spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, disease and heartworm testing, deworming and a coupon for a free rabies shot and veterinary exam. We offer post-adoption counseling and obedience training to help new adopters settle in with their new family member.
