Appointments Required for Adoptions

Due to ongoing staff shortages, we are currently operating by appointment. Please click here and read carefully before calling to schedule your visit. Thank you for your patience and understanding as our small team continues to tackle a very big job.

Why Shelters Are In Crisis

…and what you can do to help. Shelters across the country are facing an unprecedented overcrowding crisis driven by increased owner surrenders and record-low adoptions. In many ways, 2022 was our worst year since recordkeeping began in 2002. Learn more about how Woodford Humane is being impacted, and how you can help.

Canine Olympics is October 22!

Get ready for canine competitions, local vendors, silent auction, raffle, and more, all with a must-love-dogs fall festival atmosphere! Brush up on your dog’s best tricks, from snacking to costumes to frisbee, and we’ll see you at the games.
