Looking to rehome an animal?

At this time, NKL does not have a facility or shelter. All of the animals in our foster/adoption program are in foster homes of volunteers and other pet lovers in the community. Our focus is to get the animals out of the shelter, however, we try to prevent them from going to the shelter as well.

Please try the following resources for re-homing your animal:


  • Louisville Metro Animal Services (LMAS) is now a NO KILL facility!

  • The Kentucky Humane Society has launched a courtesy re-homing service. They can be reached at (502) 509-4PET.

Here are some additional resources that may be of help:.



***In order to courtesy post, we require that your animal be up to date on all vaccinations and be spayed/neutered. 
 If this has not be done yet, please let us know, we can get you vouchers for these services.***

1. A bio of the animal that includes name, approximate age, approximate weight and some characteristics of the animal's personality that will personalize our description

2. Tell us if the animal is good with other dogs, cats and children, if you know that information. We also need to know if the animal is not good with any of those three.

3. Send 3 good pictures of the animal. Excellent quality pictures are extremely important. They should have good lighting, be close ups and include a head-shot, pics with other animals and/or children (if possible), pics that capture personality, etc.

4. Provide the name and email for the contact person for the animal.

**You must respond to inquiries within 24 hours of No Kill Louisville sending them to you. Failure to respond in a timely fashion will result in your courtesy post being removed.
