Adoption Center Open By Appointment

Due to ongoing understaffing, the Adoption Center is currently open by appointment. Check out our adoptable pets here and give us a call if you see somebody you’d like to meet or know more about! Thanks in advance for your understanding. Appointments are not required to volunteer or drop off donations.

Appointments are booked by phone starting at 10:00 am daily. Call 859.873.5491 to schedule! But first…read this.

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.
