Can one day make a difference?
Yes it can, for the life of an animal in desperate need of medical
attention, food and a home!
Give for Good Louisville is one day when our whole community comes
together to be positive and do something good. When you make a
donation on Friday, September 17th, your donation will be matched by
two generous volunteers up to $3000!
Your donation will help us purchase items at the top of our "Needs"
list, such as:
to charities who get the most unique donations (a donation of $10 or
more from one individual) during a given time or randomly drawn!
This comes on the heels of another fundraiser, but even if you have
given, please consider a $10 donation to help us increase the number
of donations received, making us eligible for prize money out of the
$375,000 prize pool! It all adds up to do great things for the Humane
Society of Oldham County and the animals we care for.

Miss Emma is still looking for her Fur-Ever home!
Emma is the queen of her castle. But it’s time for her to have her own castle 🏰 to live in forever!
She loves laying by the front door or in the sunroom watching people go by. A Rottweiler/Shepherd mix, Emma is almost 6 and weighs more than 90 pounds. She's basically easy going, but needs to be the only animal in the house. She's great with kids!
She enjoys her chew bones and can brag that she has had great vet care her whole life, is crate-trained and has wonderful house manners.
She does like to go outside and run about a bit and show off her personality.
She is enjoying her time in foster care until she finds her forever home.
Emma is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and tested negative for Heartworm, Lyme, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasma.
If you would like to meet Emma, please fill out an adoption application and send it here.
You can find our application here.

We need fosters!
Kitten season is in full swing, and we are in desperate need of foster homes. As always this time of the year, it's an explosion of cat babies. Lots and lots of them. And lots of people who find themselves unable to care for them turn to us. It doesn't take long for us to run out of room at our facility.
We are also helping with an awful hoarding situation of cats and kittens, and need fosters to help get these cats to safety. The owner moved from their home and left a large group of cats in the house with little food or water. By the time someone was able to get into the house, many of the cats were dead. The remaining cats were evicted outside by authorities and are emaciated and in need of TLC and medical care to become healthy and adoptable.
HSOC will take care of all supplies, vetting, and medicines(if needed).
If you're interested in helping out in either situation, visit our website and fill out the foster application, which you can find here.
If you have questions or would like more information, email or call us.

A happy adoption story
My husband Tom and I (Mary) decided we needed a cat closer to our kitten Autumns age and energy level, to befriend her as our two older cats weren’t enjoying her antics. We went to the Lucky Cat Cafe and that’s where we met Buddy. An 11 year old long-haired cat who would walk through the cafe talking to anyone who would notice, getting verbal hello’s to multiple loves and pettings in return. Buddy was kicked outside and abandoned by his owner. So many pets through no fault of their own are abandoned, mistreated, and some have had owners who have died. Adoption is a win-win situation for the pet and the new owners. Pets want the same thing we do- a home, family, routine and lots of love. As we all meld together as a family unit you see such appreciation paid with lots of kisses, purrs, wanting to sit by you or on you, it warms your heart and soul. We also met a short haired black cat named Johnson (now Shadow) who we knew would be perfect for Autumn, so we left with 2 cats to join the Nolan family.
As with all new pets, we have them checked out by our vet. It turns out that Buddy has an irregular heart beat which we were fortunate enough to learn so we could medicate him. His appetite and energy level has moderately increased. We are grateful to the Humane Society of Oldham County for saving Buddy and Shadow and giving us the opportunity to adopt them. Autumn is extremely happy with her play mate, Shadow preens her, cuddles and they play together. Buddy loves lap time and will go back and forth between Tom and I, I believe he's giving us points, LOL. Please consider senior cats when you adopt they deserve a loving family in their golden years and you will definitely be rewarded.

- The builder is done with his part of the project. A huge shout out to Jim Rollins with Walters Buildings which is headquartered in Allenton, Wisconsin. Jim and his team not only did a fantastic job, but were also incredibly good to us. Without Jim's foresight, the crazy rise in construction materials would have stalled our build for sure. HSOC definitely gives Jim a 5 star recommendation!!
- Grading on the property still needs to be done followed by landscape work. Inside projects like shelving, installing crates, etc. have started. Our move in date is not yet set - that in itself will be a big project.
