You can do your part for Lexington Humane Society by donating an item from our Wish List. Our furry friends rely on the compassion and generosity of you, the community, and we couldn't continue our mission without your support.

As the largest adoption agency in Central KY we rely on the kindness of the community to support us in our efforts to provide love and care to abandoned animals.

Our life-saving programs are solely reliant on private donations and community support.  While cash donations are best since we can purchase food and supplies at a nonprofit discount, there are many items that we use daily and are happy to have donated.

In our efforts to "go green" and help the environment for our two and four-legged friends, we are no longer using shredded paper or newspapers for cage or catbox liners. We therefore are not in need of paper or newspaper donations.  We appreciate your efforts and support!  Please see below for other items that can help our furry friends.

Cash Donations. As a 501(c)3 organization, we are able to purchase supplies at a nonprofit discount and make each dollar go further.

  • Pull-tab canned cat food

To protect the health of our animals we request that any used animal items be thoroughly disinfected prior to donation.
