Our mission is to provide services that safeguard the health of the Jessamine County residents, no matter if they are two-legged or four-legged. We humanely house and care for the animals in our charge and make efforts to protect the animals who are not from abuse and neglect. We outreach to the community to inform citizens on responsible ownership and ask that the public report cruelty or stray animals so that we may respond. We also adopt out the many cats and dogs we rescue, so check out our adoption page for available animals if you’re looking for a new furry family member!

We rely heavily on the support of the local community to keep all of our animals happy and healthy until they can be adopted. Donations allow us to vaccinate, spay or neuter, feed, socialize, train, and otherwise provide for our animals and their well-being while they are in our charge. Support can be shown in many ways, from good donations to monetary support. For more information on how to support our shelter, from specifics on what items may be donated to or how to sign up to volunteer with the animals, check out the links below.
