Nicholas County Animal Welfare Society
Who We Are:
As a 501c3 organization, the Nicholas County Animal Welfare Society was founded in 2008, with the goal of helping homeless animals in Nicholas County, Kentucky. During our first eight years, we found new homes or rescue for over 1200 animals, and reduced the shelter euthanasia rate by over 85%. We applied for a grant on behalf of the county which resulted in funding for a new animal shelter, and we provided thousands of dollars in materials to help furnish it. We also helped develop procedures for the shelter's operations, which now comply with state animal welfare laws.

Our current focus is on spay-neuter programs, educational outreach, and fundraising events so we can continue to support the Nicholas County shelter, as well as the Paris Animal Welfare Society shelter in Paris, KY.

Next Meeting:
4th Wednesday of each month, at the Nicholas County Health Dept. meeting room, at 5:15 pm.
All are welcome!
Low Cost Spay/Neuter:

Register today at the Nicholas County Library and help reduce unwanted, homeless animals in Nicholas County.
