Pet Re-Homing Service
Our lives change. Sometimes its job-related. Sometimes it's health related. Sometimes its lifestyle related. Whatever the reason, sometimes it's just not possible to keep the pets that we have come to love so dearly. The volunteers at Somerset-Pulaski County Humane Society are besieged daily with requests for help re-homing pets -- literally hundreds of requests each month. As much as we truly WANT to help find these animals a loving new furever home, we are a small rescue organization, with a limited number of foster homes in which to place animals. We try very hard to help folks needing to re-home their pets know that "free to good home" is a very risky thing for the animals being re-homed, unless they REALLY know the person to whom they are giving the animal. That's why we feel so bad when all of our foster homes are full, and all of our rescue friends are in the same situation--our hands are tied, and it usually is the animal that suffers.
Fortunately, there IS a solution for those that can keep their pets for just a little while longer! It's called REHOME by Adopt-A-Pet. It's a safe, reliable way to re-home your pet. Just click the button below to find a perfect new home for your pet(s).
If you see abuse, neglect, or abandonment call the Pulaski County Animal Shelter at 606-679-6432 and/or call 911 until someone responds.
The Somerset-Pulaski County Humane Society is all about saving animals from a life of abuse and neglect. That said, we do not and can not go around seizing animals or make visits regarding abused abandoned or neglected animals. Without permission from a home owner we can't enter private property.
We are a PRIVATE rescue group -- NOT law enforcement, NOT animal control. We receive many calls regarding abuse and neglect. Those calls are turned over to Pulaski County Animal Control and the police to handle.
Often, we can take in animals that have been abandoned, who's owners have unexpectedly died, animals that have been hit by cars, or desperately need veterinary care for any number of reasons. Our ability to do this is certainly not limited by our hearts, but by the availability of foster homes in which to place them and funds to care for them! Want to help?

While it is not always something we can offer, we understand that sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sometimes these bad things include financial strife.
If you have run headlong into one of these situations, and need assistance with pet food or supplies, please contact us. We will do the best we can to help.
Sometimes people are in very difficult situations. Sometimes people love their pets so much, that love keeps them from getting help for themselves. Sometimes, that means staying is a situation of domestic violence, because they can't go to a victim's shelter with their animals. Sometimes it means not seeking treatment for a health issue because there is no one that could care for their pet(s) while they are away. Sometimes, a person might have lost their home, through no fault of their own, and in order to survive, they feel that they have to surrender their pet, but can't bear to lose their pet, too. That's where "Soft Landings" can step up to help.
Our Soft Landings program provides short-term foster care for the pets that might otherwise have to be surrendered or might prevent the human from getting the help they need. We will provide food, veterinary care, and loving home for the pet for a limited time, allowing the human to get back on their feet. Of course, this foster care is provided free of charge to the pet's owner. Once their lives have stabilized, the pet is returned and they can live happily ever after!
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), is the humane approach to addressing community cat populations. It works wonders, by saving cats’ lives and is effective. TNR improves the lives of cats, addresses community concerns, reduces complaints about cats, and stops the breeding cycle. TNR improves the co-existence between outdoor cats and humans in our shared environment. Scientific studies and communities with TNR programs are proof that TNR reduces and stabilizes populations of community cats.
Here in Somerset, KY we recognize that the number of feral cats in our community is huge! This is why the Pulaski County Humane Society has initiated our TNR program.
If you would like to be a positive force that benefits both the humans and the cats in our community, please click the green button below to become a volunteer! Be sure to tell us in "comments" that you'd like to be part of our TNR team!
