McCracken County Humane Society

The Best Things in Life Are Rescued

The McCracken County Humane Society accepts owner surrenders of healthy animals. We have been in operation for over 60 year as a 501c(3) nonprofit organization serving McCracken County, Kentucky and surrounding counties and states. We operate solely on the generosity of donations.

What We Offer

Humane Society Services

Pet Adoptions

Spay & Neuter


Community Education

Donations & Volunteer

Our primary goal as a humane society is to find lifelong homes for all of our animals.

Upon intake of all animals, a health record is started and they are assessed, weighed, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped. All dogs and cats get rabies vaccinations and are spayed/neutered when age appropriate.

Our staff coordinates with our volunteers to teach essential training techniques. Combined with volunteers, we train our animals by using positive reinforcement methods. When trained, shelter dogs become better behaved, less stressed animals in the shelter environment; thus making them more desirable to potential adopters.
