The Somerset-Pulaski County Humane Society is a designated 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Our mission is multi-faceted, focusing on the areas of:
Seeing a need for energetic, non-profit animal advocacy and rescue work in Pulaski and surrounding counties, the Somerset-Pulaski County Humane Society was founded in June,1989. We have been offering low cost spay neuter clinics from the very beginning. We originally began our clinic at the county fairgrounds. Then, we relocated to a farm in Eubank that the we owned briefly, and then moved to a rented house on US 80. Next, the Hal Rogers Fire Training Center graciously loaned space to us once a month so we could continue to run our clinic. Prior to 2014, we utilized a mobile surgery vet based out of Glasgow, Kentucky.
Now, we proudly have a place to call our own. We purchased the facility on Chris Way in 2012. In 2014, a local vet committed to helping us at least twice each month. This has enabled us to greatly increase the number of animals altered.
Our pledge to the animals in our care is to provide a loving foster home, to promote socialization, and learn to be part of a family.
The Somerset-Pulaski County Humane Society is a private, local animal welfare organization.
We are not in any way affiliated with the Pulaski County Animal Shelter. We collaborate frequently with the Pulaski County Animal Shelter on an as needed and case by case basis.
Did you know
that we are only affiliated with the much larger HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) in name only?
We receive NO financial support through the HSUS or your tax dollars
(other than the occasional grant for which we compete).
This is why YOUR support is critical to us!
We operate solely through the generosity of donations from people like you, and donations from a few local companies.
We also work hard to apply for grants from outside foundations and much larger rescue organizations.
There is fierce competition for these grants, and never a guarantee that we will receive funding just because we have applied.
Our amazing team of volunteers are committed to helping animals in Pulaski and surrounding counties. We take our convictions and turn them into action. It is, serious, and at times, heartbreaking work!
Operating as a 100% volunteer organization, with no paid positions, many of us also work full time. Thus, we are not always immediately available. We work hard so we can help animals in need and support our families at the same time! We rescue locally and beyond.
