Bowling Green / Warren County Humane Society
The Humane Society helps adopt animals into responsible homes and vigorously promotes the importance of spaying/neutering all pets. Learn about the many services that they offer, as well as what you can do to help.
The BGWC Humane Society is located at 1924 Louisville Road in Bowling Green, Kentucky. If you are interested in volunteering or adopting an animal for you or your family, please call 270-842-8572 or visit the Humane Society's web page for more information.
The Humane Society has kittens, puppies, cats and dogs of all sizes and descriptions available for adoption at the shelter. The adoption fee of $75 pays our vets for a check-up, worming, a rabies shot, the first distemper shot, and spaying or neutering. We screen all adopters to see if they will be loving, responsible caregivers.
To find more information about animals that are available for adoption, please visit the following web page. These animals are currently up for adoption at the animal shelter and due to limited space these animals will be euthanized to make room for incoming animals. If you have been considering a pet for yourself or your family now is the perfect time to adopt one at the animal shelter.
Six veterinarians in Warren, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, and Simpson counties participate in the Humane Society's Prevent-A-Litter program, which offers low-cost spay/neuter certificates to individuals on limited incomes. This is run on-site in the shelter at the Spay/Neuter Clinic and is available to all residents of Warren County. Spays/Neuters for dogs are $65 and for cats are $45. If the animal is not current on Rabies Vaccine, which is required , then there is an additional $6.
The Humane Society shelter cares for over 6,000 homeless, lost, injured, and abused animals every year. Most are dogs and cats, but we never turn away an animal of any kind.
The Humane Society operates an emergency rescue service 24 hours a day, seven days a week for injured, sick, and abused animals.
The Humane Society seeks to educate both children and adults on responsible care and humane treatment of animals. Our volunteers make presentations at schools, the Public Library, Girls' Inc., daycare centers, etc.
The Humane Society investigates all reports of neglected and mistreated animals, confiscates them when necessary, and takes abusers to court.
The Humane Society spends over $5,000 a year of donation money for treatment of injured and sick animals.
