What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Out mission is to build a no kill Louisville, where no adoptable animal is euthanized because of resources, space, or economics. Animals are put down in our city shelters due to lack of space. Our work is geared to getting those adoptable animals out of the shelter, into foster care, until they can be adopted, thus giving space for new animals to enter the shelter without putting the currently housed animals at risk.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To help make Louisville a no kill city where are all shelters are no kill, having a 90% live release rate.

Our current programs are instrumental in our mission.
Our spay/neuter program offers low or no cost spay/neuter surgeries, preventing unwanted litters.
Our Pet Food Bank helps provide food and supplies to low or no income families that are struggling to feed their animals. Keeping healthy and happy animals in homes where they are loved and out of the shelters.
Our Foster/Adoption program pulls adoptable animals from shelters and places them in foster care until they can be adopted. Thus, giving space for new animals to enter the shelter without putting the currently housed animals at risk.

We are an all-volunteer organization comprised of a "working" Board of Directors, several committees, and many hard-working, compassionate volunteers. We communicate well, are committed to seeing our goals through, and are dedicated to the life saving work. Our volunteers offer a variety of skills which help us continue successful programs to save more animals lives.

With our biggest goal of helping our city shelter gain and maintain no kill status, our next goal is to build our own No Kill Facility where we can offer run all our programs in house and help house animals that are needing to find forever homes.
