WHO WE ARE
The Humane Society of Nelson County is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation which was formed in 1994. This organization cares for all sick and injured animals that find their way to the Nelson County Animal Shelter. The Nelson County Animal Shelter is run by the county government. Caring for sick, injured and immature animals is beyond the scope of what they can do. We offer the care these animals need until they are ready for adoption. These animals are housed in the homes of foster families. Adoptions are managed almost exclusively by the Animal Shelter, not the Humane Society.
We also provide spay/neuter for shelter animals and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for low income pet owners, offer behavioral modification and training information to help keep pets in their homes, offer humane education materials and visits to local schools and other organizations. We provide transport for animals going to rescue groups in and out of state. Call us at 502-349-2082
