Pulaski County Humane Society

We hope you find this page helpful. The Pulaski County Humane Society will be posting more useful links, so check in often.

Find out more about Animal abuse and neglect by clicking the link below. 

We understand how many have been affected by the economic down fall. Below you will find links to other low cost spay/neuter clinics. Please keep in mind that these are located up northwest(near Lexington), but well worth the drive if you have more than one animal.

Happy Paws
