McCracken County Humane Society

The Best Things in Life Are Rescued

The McCracken County Humane Society accepts owner surrenders of healthy and adoptable animals within McCracken County. We also house animals brought to us by Animal Control and hold them as efforts are made to reunite them with their owners. If not claimed, these animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated and made available for adoption. We have been in operation for over 60 years as a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. We gladly accept monetary donations and new or gently used pet items as well as linens such as towels, sheets, blankets, etc.

All donations made to MCHS are tax deductible

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.

Pet of the Month

McCracken County Humane Society | Pet Adoption

 Hello! My name is MARLEY!

  • Breed: Terrier Mix
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 3 years
  • Size: Large (about 60#)
  • My adoption fee is $50

I came to the shelter in February of 2023. I was brought in by Animal Control as a stray. I was pregnant when I came in and all of my puppies have all found their forever homes. Now I need my forever home!


I am very friendly and sweet. I love kids and attention! I would love to be a lap dog and cuddle with you! I love playing outside and get the zoomies!! I am dog particular so would have to do a meet and greet before I go home. I don’t do well with cats.


I am spayed, current on all vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped and have been given monthly flea and tick preventative. I am heartworm negative and have been on monthly preventative since I came in.
