We Still Need Your Help

We are doing adoptions again, but the funding crisis is still very real. The fact is, adoptions are not a source of income for Woodford Humane; our adoption fees only recoup a fraction of the cost of caring for each pet. With the cancellation of vital fundraising events, Covid-19 has wiped out over $130,000 in funding we need to carry us through 2020.

We need your help, now more than ever. Please act now.

Adoption Center Open By Appointment

Woodford Humane Society is open for adoptions by appointment only. Appointments must be made by phone starting at noon daily and you must know which pet you want to meet. Strict guidelines are in place to insure your and our health and safety as we begin to allow visitors back in; read this thoroughly before you call and plan your visit accordingly.

To our volunteers and our casual visitors: we miss you! We will let you know as soon as anything changes and we are able to safely welcome you back in. Thank you for your kind words and continued support in this difficult time.

Orders Closed: “Social Distancing” Limited Run!

Thanks to all who ordered! Our list is off to the printer and we expect to have shirts in hand by the end of the month. If you chose curbside pick-up, you’ll receive an email with those details once the shirts have arrived.

100% of proceeds help keep us up and running in a safe and socially distanced way! We hope you’ll wear them with pride and remind your friends to remain 9 dachshunds apart.

Canine Olympics Cancelled

For the first time in 37 years, there will be no Canine Olympics. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and with cases still on the rise, we cannot risk gathering hundreds of volunteers, staff, and visitors in one place. For Woodford Humane, this means an additional $30,000 shortfall in funding. If you have loved Canine Olympics over the years, please consider supporting it even in its absence: sponsor at your normal level, or simply make a donation that reflects what Canine Olympics means to you, to our community, and to the pets in our care.

Until we can compete safely again, keep training and stay well! You’re all gold medalists in our book.
