Nicholas County Animal Welfare Society
Who We Are:
The Nicholas County Animal Welfare Society was founded
in 2008, with the goal of helping homeless animals in
Nicholas County, Kentucky. We are a 501c3 organization.
We receive no county or state funding, and rely entirely
upon donations and fundraising to help our animals. We
have found new homes or rescue for hundreds of animals,
and reduced the shelter euthanasia rate by over 85%, saving
lives as well as saving the county thousands of dollars each
Our future focus will be on spay-neuter programs,
educational outreach, and fundraising events so we can
continue to save animals.
Our organization tries to pull as many animals as possible
from the county shelter once their hold period is up; however
the Nicholas County Fiscal Court runs the county shelter
and makes all final decisions regarding euthanasia.
4th Monday of each month,
at the Nicholas County
Health Dept. meeting room,
at 6:15 pm.
All are welcome!
