The Woodford Humane Society is a non-profit animal adoption center in Versailles, Kentucky. We care for the homeless and unwanted animals in Woodford County, surrounding counties, as well as animals from other states. We have welcomed thousands of animals since 1975 and strive to find good, loving homes for all of them. A careful screening process helps us match the right animals to the right adoptive homes.

With no government funding, we are completely dependent on private contributions to continue to provide care to 1,000 animals each year. We are proud to maintain an annual placement rate of over 95% - three times the national average.

At any given time, we are home to approximately 200 animals available for adoption. Adoption counselors are on staff to assist with the selection of a new pet. Our goal is to help you make a match that will last a lifetime.

Adoption fees include spay or neuter surgery, a Home Again microchip, vaccinations and deworming, feline leukemia and FIV screening for cats, heartworm screening for dogs, rabies vaccination, and a free veterinary check-up.

We provide counseling and offer advice for topics such as obedience training, housebreaking, helping your pet adapt to a new home and other behavioral issues.

Our open-door policy means that we take in animals in need, regardless of their temperament, health, age or breed as long as we have the room to accommodate them. All of our animals are evaluated based on health, known history and temperament before being placed for adoption. We get to know our animals well and provide the enrichment and the playtime they need to stay happy.

We never set a time limit for adoptable animals to find a new home -- in fact, many animals have remained here a year or more while awaiting their new home. Cageless cat rooms and spacious play yards for our dogs keep our pets happy while they await adoption. Click here to learn more about our Adoption Center and facilities.

Owner-surrendered animals are by appointment. This ensures that we have available space and reduces stress for everyone. For information about surrendering your pet, please click here. We do not provide Animal Control services for Woodford County. If you find a stray animal in Woodford County, or have a complaint about neglect, please contact Woodford County Animal Control at 859-879-0598. We will bring unclaimed stray pets to our facility for adoption once their required stray days have elapsed.
