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
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.
4th Wednesday of each
month, at the Nicholas
County Health Dept. meeting
room, at 5:15 pm.
All are welcome!
