  • 1. Go STHS

    by: Magsmum

    I'm reviewing a facility where the animals come first and the staff does everything possible to make the pups and cats comfortable and as happy as they can be. The kennel manager knows her stuff and keeps the reins tight and moving with ease. Helap them move into a fantastic new facility where they can focus more on the animals and vet care than the condition of the building... which is perfectly acceptable living conditions, but every penny helps!!!

    Pros

    The vet is amazing and she just loves animals

    Cons

    Needs an update is all

  • 2. My Experience

    by: duncansm83

    My husband and I had such a great experience when we went to adopt a cat from this shelter. In fact, we adopted 2 cats, Smokie and Miss Kitty. You could tell the staff love what they do and really care about the animals there. GREAT JOB!!!!

    Pros

    very clean, healthy animals

    Cons

    none

  • 3. Complete turnaround

    by: jcravens42

    This shelter went from being derided online and by the press to being one of the best shelters in the area. It's an example of what communities and volunteers can do when they combine forces to improve a situation.

    Pros

    Incredible success story

    Cons

    Needs a better web site

  • 6. New and improved shelter

    by: Bachw57

    Jacquie Cobb, the shelter manager, acting director, has wonderful new ideas to help the animals. One program that she has started is the foster program. If you are not ready or can not adopt an animal (especially a dog), please consider to volunteer as a foster parent for these dogs/cats. This really helps alleviate the overpopulation problem that most shelters are facing.\r\nThe shelter also takes animals on weekends to local PetSmart stores for adoption. Please visit your local PetSmart on Saturday to save an animal.\r\n

    Pros

    Young, new, true animal lover staff

    Cons

    Needs money, so HELP!

  • 7. a whole lot of love

    Cons

    small space

  • 8. Danielle Cobb

    by: dannicobb

    The staff is amazing, they all really care about the animals. One of their staff members, Jacqueline (my sister) cared a lot for a prospecting animal who came in. The dog was sick at the operation was something like $800. A vetrinarian friend of hers said they would do it for $200 as a favor. When funds weren't enough, she raised the money herself and the dog is now happily adopted.

    Pros

    Everything!

    Cons

    Nothing!

  • 10. Review of Henderson Humane Society

    by: why42085

    I believe this shelter has the basic tools to succeed - employees and volunteers who care and want to make a difference. They just need some help from their community and of course, donations!

    Pros

    Has a few good reliable employees who do their best and a few good volunteers who help

    Cons

    Not enough space, time, money or help from the community.

  • 11. Greta Place

    by: AshleyK08

    I have adopted two animals from the shelter. They helped me find the right pet for me and my family. Everyone was very nice to us and very wondeful to the animals.

    Pros

    Offers alot of help for anyone wanting to adopt a pet.

    Cons

    Very small for all the animals they need to house.

  • 12. Shelter is having problems

    by: Kalyn

    One of the staff members has disappeared with at least two female purebred Boxers from the shelters! The director kept saying the dogs would be back at the shelter tomorrow each day last week. On Friday, the staff member "fostering" the dogs was a no-show, no-call for work and they were unable to reach her. I sure hope that these dogs are NOT being taken from the shelter to be placed in at a puppy mill!!! They deserve better.

    Pros

    Some staff are caring and want to place animals

    Cons

    Unable to locate dogs in foster care

  • 13. Love my Henderson Girls!!

    Cons

    needs more more money

  • 14. Angel

    by: hairlesshorse

    We got Angel in Feb. The shelter could have been cleaner, but I have seen worse. The staff was very friendly. They let us foster Angel for two weeks to make sure that she was going to work for our family. She fit in very well, even the cat came around quickly. She did have a wicked case of kennel cough, but they did supply the meds to treat it.

    Pros

    Allowed us to foster our dog to see if she would work with our family

    Cons

    Could be cleaner

  • 15. Just got my dog

    by: dhobbs

    I got my dog from here about a week ago. She did have quite a few issues totaling $300+, but the Vet set us up with a 30-day insurance package. The insurance wont cover you up front, but you can mail it it. Holly is doing very well and I am so glad I saved her. My daughter loves her.

    Pros

    Affordable, 30-day insurance

    Cons

    Not knowing what you'll end up with

    Our dog Chopper came from here years ago. Since then it has greatly improved and hopefully will be even better in the future. Thanks for our great dog. He is a bundle of joy and energy and I'm glad we were able to give him a good home. Henderson, Keep up the good work. Because of you many homes have been blessed with great companions and many animals given a new lease on life. Dayrha, Michaela, Gracie and our dog, Chopper Dennis Allen

    by: Opiesnanny

    They have worked hard and made great progress!

    Cons

  • 19. Cares for Their Animals

    by: drc9221

    I like the Henderson County shelter for animals because they care about the animals that live there until they find a family to live with. I love how when they have to many animals instead of putting them to death they give them away free so that they have at least on more chance at finding a home. You are doing a great job keep it up.

    Pros

    Healthy animals

    Cons

    They animals have to live their.

  • 20. This shelter cares for the animals

    by: Dirtdevil

    I got my dog, Penny here last spring. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The adoption price is very reasonable considering they spay and place identity chips in the animal. Best of all, I have a pet that needs love and gives back her love and dedication 100% unconditionally.

    Pros

    The people are extremely helpful in the adoption process.

    Cons

    They could use more space for animals.

    by: Tammo

    This is a staff who works hard, not only for special events, but every day, every week and paramount in their fight is to find loving, caring homes for the animals they oversee. You could not ask for more dedicated and caring people. They just need more help to accomplish their goals.

  • 40. The river is raising. Henderson brings families back together.

    by: mizzmarty

    This shelter needs this makeover.We need to know, as the flooding continues, our lost pets have a safe place to go because The Henderson Shelter is where we are going to look for our pets,They have a careing staff who do their very best to find the families of all the pets who are homeless because of the flooding in this area.\r\n Because of the high water we see too many deer,opposum,racoon ect. killed on the highway because they are heading for high ground.Our pets head for home, and in some cases their home is not reachable due to high water,so they head for high ground too. I don't want to see our pets on the highway too.The henderson shelter is their for us and are working very hard to make sure our families are reunited.\r\n Even if they don't win I want to say Thanks Henderson for taking care of our pets.\r\n

    The staff and facility are helping keep our animals safe.

    They need a larger area and greater area for our lost family members

  • 46. Great Humane Society

    by: dlchurch

    Our school donated money to the Henderson Humane society and it was greatly appreciated and wisely used towards the animals. Also I bought a cat from there and it was a great choice of place to get a pet because our family loves this cat. If we could have a better cat I would like to know where it is located. This cat is loving to our family and a lot of fun.

    Pros

    Staff cares greatly of animals.

    Cons

    Pets need better conditions. Conditions aren't bad, but could always be better.

  • 47. They help animals in need

    by: LittleRedDog

    I am a very big animal love and i can't stand seeing a animal in any type of pain. I always call the Henderson Humane Society to come put up the animal if i cant find there owners or i see they are very thin. When i call they are very nice and come in a timely manner. But sometimes it does take a while to get someone to answer the phones or if it is after hours you have to call the police department to get someone to call you back. I have went to the Henderson Humane Society to take my nephews to walk and play with the animals there. Its clean and the people who work there are very friendly.

    Pros

    always come when you call them about a animal that is homeless

    Cons

    need a better system to get in touch with them after hours.

  • 48. Nice Shelter

    by: mellisa30

    Henderson Humaine Society is a great shelter! The people are wonderful and take great care of the animals there! The only problem is that they don't have the funding to do more for the shelter!! I wish they could have more fun-raisers in the community and more people that would volunteer to help them!! But overall I think Henderson Humaine Society does a GREAT JOB!!! Keep up the good work...

    Pros

    truely care about the animals

    by: ztT4MP17819327

    I just want to thank everyone who volunteers their time, home, love, and money to save an animal. There are so many animals that need people like you. I'm sure it gets stressful and times get harsh. But please always remember that you are the only people who care and love them. Without you they would die. God bless you and keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Saving Animals!

    Cons

    It never ends!

  • 57. "AWSOME"

    by: memebug

    I just have to say that the Staff and the Vet at the Henderson Human Society are "AWSOME" that is the only word that I can think of right now. They are friendly, caring, and they know how to handle and conduct themselves, they are very knowledgeable of their duties and if you need them they are there regardless of the time of day or night. The Staff is a group of hard working individuals, they thrive on their ability to help each animal to the fullest and to nurse the sick back to health and to rehabilitate the ones that need to be helped with slight behavorial problems, The staff is wonderful and always have a smiling face when you go into the office to see how they are or to take our Rescue dog in to show them how much he has grown. I would really love to see them win they so deserve the make over, we are a small community and don't get a lot of help. We can make this happen we are in the top 20 come on people of Henderson lets pull together and make this happen......

    Pros

    Great Attitudes

    Cons

    None

  • 58. Very dedicated workers!

    by: brooke4268

  • 61. Wonderful shelter

    by: ztT4MP45738281_DEAD_

    I have to say the wonderful staff at Henderson Shelter are such hard working people. They wear many hats to get what needs to be done and are always going above and beyond the call of duty. I can't think of a more deserving shelter to win this contest. It has been a long road of many hardships and would be great to help out so many animals to have much better lives.

    Pros

    Just an all around great place.

    Cons

    Need more money

  • 64. My Cat

    by: tiggroos03

    In 1992 I went to the Henderson Humane Society to get a puppy and had no intentions of getting a cat. I looked at several dogs and could not make up mind. Going to where the dogs were at, I had to go by the cats and noticed a kitten, a very cute kitten and came home with him. I named him Tigger. For 14 years he was with me until he got sick. I had to put him to sleep and I took him back to the humane society for their help. They were so nice and supportive. We also had a Yorkie that was 12 years old that got sick last year and passed on. At this time we dont have any pets, but want to get one in the near future and I will go back to HHS.

    Pros

    Very caring people

    Cons

    none

  • 65. a lot better place than it used to be

    by: Pa

    Thank you  Thank you for doing what you do!!!p.s.  I have found out if we vote on each others  reviews, vote if the review was helpful for not, that it gives that person points.    So if we all vote on the other members reviews we might get back in the top 20.     just an idea to get more points

    Pros

    They seem to actually care about the animal

    Cons

    it is sad that they are not a no kill

  • 67. Great Place To Find A Friend

    by: knightf

    Have never paid for a pet. Always try to take in a dog that has outlived its usefullness. Hard to say no to a "homeless" pet. That's why my dogs eat me out of house and home.\r\nUntil we all spay or neuter our pets, there will always be a need for good shelters.\r\nHenderson Humane Society is that place.\r\n

    Pros

    They work hard at a thankless job.

    Cons

    Need better facilities.

  • 68. Perfect!

    the facility needs some work but they are having trouble with finances

  • 69. Trying hard to help the community, thanks!

    by: rbumps

    We should all take a moment and thank this shelter for all they do. There are so many irresponsible pet owners, and the animals fall back to the shelters to be cared for. Kudos to your efforts, and glad I could help out by joining this site!

    This shelter needs help people! It is a huge shame that the city won't do their part. Do they want to see the animals suffer on the streets? I'd hope not, so they need to get their act togather and help this animal shelter out! This shelter seems to really be trying, and more people should spend their money on things that matter instead of 2008's most popular car or whatever.

    Pros

    Great

    Cons

    Bad

  • 72. Help The Animals

  • 73. Well said Kellee!

    by: Angelmae

    We are in the same boat. Wish we all could win this. I really am puzzled as to why we all have to work so hard to do the community a service!!! They should be helping us!!

    Pros

    hard workers, good heart

    Cons

    need funding,

  • 74. Awesome!

    by: Mahou

    The HHS is trying very hard to make their site better for the animals, and its a real shame the city isn't helping out more. If people went and spent a single day with all of these animals, and saw how much the staff tries to help them, I'm sure they would be willing to dig into their pockets and donate.\n\nThe shelter has turned around so quickly from how it was before. Now it's your time to shine, people. Help the shelter win this, help the shelter save more lives. Help them help YOUR mistakes.

    Pros

    Very nice people, awesome animals

    Cons

    Need more space (which this will hopefully provide!)

    by: AngelikaSkaggs

    These people, both the staff and volunteers, are loving and caring toward the animals and the public who come in...Every time I have walked thru the doors to take food or just to ask about adoptions, I have always been treated with respect and kindness. I couldn't look those animals in the eyes and not cry every day...I don't know how they continue to perform their jobs and still keep their hearts!!\r\nBut we need more room and a better facility...BAD!!

  • 82. Amazing Volunteers

    by: brinibug

    THe Henderson Humane Society has the most dedicated, hardest working volunteers of just about any organization I know. So many people devote their free time to finding homes for the animals who end up there, as well as keeping the animals comfortable and loving on them while they're there.

  • 89. Best Place For Animals!!!

    by: mikeac22

    This shelter is full of staff and volunteers that truly care for animals. They all have a huge heart and definitely make taking care of animals a top priority in their lives. They work more with what little they have than most shelters do with tons of resources. They are all very hard, loving workers.

    Wonderful Staff

    Cons

  • 90. God's Creatures

    by: KYBred

    Only a couple of years ago, this shelter had a very bad reputation. With the staff and volunteers they have now, along with all the dedicated people who help out (either physically or financially), this shelter has evolved into an outstanding place for unwanted creatures to call their temporary home. I always appreciate anyone who takes care of God's creatures.

    Pros

    Can Do Attitude

    Cons

    None

  • 91. We love our Shelter!!!

    by: casper

    This is a great place with a lot of heart. The only thing I think that would make this a better place is if we could win the make-over!! The staff is certainly deserving, as they are all here for the right reasons. The volunteers are the best, and the animals defininitely deserve a new facility to better meet their needs!! Henderson is a great place to live, filled with quality people like the ones that you will find right here at the shelter.

    Pros

    Great Staff!

    Cons

    need a new facility!!

  • 92. Adoption with ease

    by: Mulysa

    One day while at home messing on the computer and 1/2 way listening to the television I heard something about a "special needs" boston terrier who was looking for a home. I grabbed my phone to call my parents who are boston lovers. Mom said she wanted the animal before she even told dad about him. Dad asked me to call about him....\r\n\r\n\r\nIt was a very active 20 minutes of so before my dad called and asked if I had the $80 to go pick up his new friend. \r\n\r\nI did and I have to say the people were AWESOME!\r\n\r\n\r\n~\r\nOne Eyed Willy's Human Sister =)

    Pros

    Knowledgable friendly staff

    Cons

  • 93. Proud of HCHS

    by: karynfranks

    When spending time with the employees and volunteers of the HCHS, you quickly realize how important what they are doing is to each of them. It is not just about a paycheck, it is about giving animals a chance- giving each animal that comes through the door an uncondtional love and attention that they may never have known if not for the compassion of these employees and volunteers. When you listen to the staff members talk about the animals, call them by name, talk about their different personalities, it is very apparent how much they care. They work so hard to find ways to raise money so the animals can have all they need and hopefully a little extra. Henderson is very lucky to have a facility with the standards of our shelter and for those who work so unselfishly to keep setting the standards higher. It is truly a Humane Society we can be proud of!

    Pros

    Dedicated staff and volunteers

    Cons

    None

  • 94. Help the poor animals!!

    by: ztT4MP57927154

    The people that work here are wonderful!! They give the pets baths, they feed them, they take them on walks, and they take time to play with them!! I love going there to help out! If it only had a little bit more room it would be even better. The human society here is great!!

    Pros

    They take very good care of the pets!!

    Cons

    This place does not have very much space and thats what they need!!

  • 96. a better place

    by: Darnell

    With the newspaper articles, being at Petsmart, being on tv and having other different programs it seems the people there now really care about the animals but it hasn't always been that way. It use to be a horrible place.

    Pros

    they seem to actually care about the animals

    Cons

    it is sad that they are not a no kill like Vanderburgh humane society

  • 97. changes for the better

    by: mitzid

    I believe this facility provides a good and much needed service to the community. The staff is attentive to the community needs but are in need of more financial means to improve the quality of housing through expansion of these services such as animal control and the housing availability for the animals that are rescued

    Pros

    The facility has make great improvements to provide an alternative for the community animal control issues

    Cons

    The facility is not big enough nor does it have a quarenteen area for incoming animals which may have infectious disease

  • 99. Friendly & helpful!

    by: bogey50

    When we were ready to choose a pet they let us visit as long and often as we wanted untill we could find a dog we thought would fit into our family.\r\nThey let us bring him home to visit and make sure he would get along with everyone. Needless to say he was a keeper!\r\nThe staff and volunteers are all so kind and understanding. \r\nHenderson should be proud of the great job they are doing.\r\nI know I am.

    Pros

    always welcoming, friendly,as well as letting you take time to find the perfect pet for your family.

    Cons

    small building with limited resources.

    by: Gene1

    Cons

    I did not see anything negative

  • 101. Humane Society of Henderson County

    by: drmgfisher

    The Humane Society of Henderson County is a changed place starting a couple of years ago. They have gone from no system and keeping up with the dogs, to a computerized system which tracks all aspects of care and treatments, etc.\r\nThey have cleaned up the facility and do all that can be done for disease control with what they have to work with. The shelter has become a place that the community can be proud of instead of an eye sore and embarassment

    Pros

    Great staff and volunteer base

    Cons

    the building has a lot of problems

  • 102. Great

    by: rjlupinskat

    A group of dedicated individuals doing the best they can with an old facility.

  • 108. Help

    by: stacyrenae

    The staff of the Henderson Humane Society does the best they can do for Henderson's homeless pets, with the resources available to them. The number of adoptions are up from recent years due to new management of the shelter. However, more funding would enable these dedicated employees and volunteers to provide optimum care for pets waiting for loving homes.

    Pros

    Dedicated staff

    Cons

    Building in need of repair and improvements

    by: allielynne

    Im a college student and was taking a photography class, and for my final project, my task was to capture people interacting with other people or animals that they loved. So, I thought what better place to be in than the Henderson Animal Shelter!? They were very welcoming and greatful that I decided to take pictures of their shelter and accomodated me tremendously. I developed the pictures and gave copies to them and they were so pleased and grateful, they even hung them up on the wall in their hallway! It was a great experience with wonderful people and animals.(and I ended up getting a good grade on my project ;)

  • 130. Fantastic Turnaround - A Ways to Go!!

    by: Katiesmama

    The Humane Society of Henderson County has completely turned this formerly sub-standard shelter into an award winning shelter in two years. We have caring employees and volunteers who work tirelessly to find homes for the animals, maintain good conditions for them while in the shelter and do fund raising. Our facility is too small - we do not have enough space for the number of animals we get (we are required to take any and all animals brought to us or found as strays). Sometimes it gets a little crowded because we do our best to be as close to a no-kill shelter as we can. (We only put down those too ill to recover or viscious animals which would be unadoptable). Our vet needs more space and equipment in order to take proper care of the animals, and our office equipment is outdated and inefficient. But we all truly love and care about each animal and do everything we can to make them feel loved while they are in our care. We give the animals "kennel" names and the office staff can identify and recite the traits of any animal in our care. There is never enough money coming in but we all do our best with what we have.

    Pros

    Well cared for animals, has own veterinarian

    Cons

    Not enough space for pets, vet services

  • 134. The Snowball Effect

    by: philter

    Numerous kudos could be given for valuable aspects of the staff, grounds, and operation, but I won't get into the specifics on each subject. I'm only going to mention one (which at first glance might appear to designate negative connotations, but if you'll read on you'll discover that it's just the opposite).\r\n\r\nEvery successful business, organization, or any structured group is centered around a single idea, one passion that extends beyond T-crossing and dollars and cents...a centralized 'theme' of it all that acts upon all levels, seeping into the farthest branches infectiously and without conscious intent. And at the core of it all in the Henderson Humane Society? The staff and what lies within their own cores...They care. It might sound far too simplistic to envelope this entire review, but it's the most important quality in my eyes because no living thing within the walls can remain untouched by the fact. Employees and volunteers that truly care impact everything, creating an environment that prevents oversight and promotes improvement all around.\r\n\r\nIt isn't difficult to recognize the difference between a passion and an obligation. And within the eyes of the staff here in Henderson, the last thing you'll ever guess is that they're at work. Everything else radiates from this one simple thing. They care, and everything else either has or will be resolved directly because of it.\r\n

    Pros

    caring staff

    Cons

    Additional space could never be a bad thing.

  • 135. Wonderful facility with a caring staff

    by: myrapolley

    Not only does the staff put in their regular hours during the work week, but they volunteer just as many hours to help the animals after business hours and on weekends! The employees are truly dedicated to helping the animals. \r\n\r\nYou don't often find that level of commitment in the animal shelter environment. I love being a part of such a wonderful organization.

  • 139. animals

    by: dreed

    the animal shelter has had a rough time with staffing and financial issues. when i started volunteering i ofter wondered who was there that really cared. when i stopped volunteering. improvenent was going on. the animals were getting better care and actually the new staff cared. the acting director at this time loves animals and has their best of interest at heart. i quit volunteering because i got real close to one of the dogs and he had to be put down. the staff has wants these animals to have a good and safe home. that is why screening is done on each application. the staff greet each and everyone with a smile. cleanliness is good according to people that i have talked to.

    Pros

    caring staff

    Cons

  • 145. What a turnaround

    by: OpalZ

    This place has made such an amazing turn around. Last year they were shelter of the year. They could still use volunteers to help get these babies adopted. One thing I think is just great is that they have waived adoption fee days. it is just great to know that they would rather waive the adoption fee than to have the unfortunate circumstances that go along with shelter over crowding.

    Pros

    Such a caring group of people

    Cons

    none to list

  • 146. A home away from home

    by: AprilHogan

    My daughter and I just love animals, we love volunteering at the shelter. Everyone there is so nice and helpful and the place and animals are well taken care of. When I was a little girl I always thought of the animal shelter as a place that was horrible for animals- they were just waiting their turn to be put down. Now, after volunteering for several months I know that's not true at all. All the animals are so loved and everyone works so hard at finding good homes for them. It's so rewarding finding homes for those special animals, and they are all so special.

    Pros

    The Henderson Humane Society is the friendliest, cleanest, most loving shelter around

    Cons

    We could always use more volunteers to help out with daily chores

  • 147. THIS HUMANE SOCIETY HAS CAME A LONG WAY

  • 148. Love it!

    by: harleysmom

    I volunteered here for a year and love the place - it is where I rescued my baby from. They are out for the total welfare of the animals. I only wish they could have a larger and better facility, but since the income is soley from donations its hard - I would love to see them grow - they deserve it and I'm hoping all these little points we have add up and we can help them get one.

    Pros

    The staff and volunteers - its the best

    Cons

    small due to income soley from donations

  • 151. Deserving Shelter

    by: Togabmax

    This shelter has been throught tremendous changes in the last year and a half. It has gone from being a disgrace to being named shelter of the year by the state animal care and control association. This was due to the tireless dedication of Dr John Dunaway (now retired) and his staff. It is a clean well run facility that we are all proud of. This shelter has been through such hard times and overcome many obstacles. They desperately need a bigger facility. Our dedicated workers and vet need more space to do their job.

    Pros

    Employees work tirelessly

    Cons

    Needs more space

  • 152. help us grow!

    by: cheyanne4

    My older sister volunteers with the Henderson Humane society and she takes me a long when she can. I like going to petsmart for adoptathons. We try our hardest to get all the dogs and cats homes there! Dogs Night out on tuesday nights is also something I help with. I think it is one of the best things we do. We get all the dogs out and let them stretch their legs, clean the cages, give them treats, lots of love and a nice clean blanket to sleep on! Dogs Night Out is very good for the dogs because it gives them a chance to be loved all over and get some much needed exercise. Volunteers spend about 2 hours every tuesday putting on dogs night out. The staff at shelter and the volunteers are nice caring animal lovers. We really need this makeover. We have needed it for many,many years. With a bigger facility we could do so much more. The Henderson Humane Society is very deserving of this makeover, please do what you can to help us win!!

    Pros

    petsmart adoptathons, dogs night out, volunteers

    Cons

    size of the shelter

    by: haley123

    My sister has a lab. She breed the lab and the mom got a disease and was no longer able to nurse the puppies. We went to the Humane Society hoping to find a replacement mother, instead we found a staff that was willing to help bottle feed. Even though they didn't a have pregnant dog we could use they did have a person that could help a lot. We were very pleased. They saved 9 puppies life.

    No pregnant mother.

    My husband and I just started volunteering there and love trying to help out the animals with finding a home. They need this makeover to make more space for the animals that are looking for homes. The makover would be a wonderful thing for the shelter. It would be used in a way that would put the animals needs first. The volunteers have nothing but love in their hearts and just want what is best for the animals. Please help our shelter!

  • 158. Helping Aniamls in Henderson, KY

    by: Kevin61

    The staff at the Henderson Humane Society is concerned with the welfare of every animal that it shelters. Operating on donations alone, the shelter staff and its volunteers work hard to find homes for each animal as quickly as possible. Using Internet web sites, email, local media and word-of-mouth, the HHS staff and volunteers do everything possible to see that sheltered animals find good and loving homes. \r\n\r\nThroughout the week, the HHS staff and volunteers provide love and attention to the animals that they shelter. All work to provide clean, dry bedding each day. A Vet is on staff to insure that all animals in the shelter remain healthy. Everyone pitches-in to insure the animals are fed and have good, clean water. While the animals see some exercise during the week, Tuesday evenings are special because many of the volunteers provide exercise and interaction for the dogs in the shelter from 5:30PM to 7:30PM. At the end of the evening, the dogs are provided treats and warm blankets to sleep on! \r\n\r\nThe Henderson Kentucky Humane Society has the best staff and volunteers! Every animal sheltered there knows they are loved! \r\n\r\nThe Henderson Humane Society operates on donations alone. Please help if you can. Help us save these wonderful animals!\r\n

    Pros

    The best staff! They give each animal love and do everyhting possible to help each of them!

    Cons

    The have not formal funding.

  • 159. Our humane society!

    by: missydawn89

    The Henderson County Humane Society has taught me a lot since I started volunteering there. It makes me feel as if I am giving back in some way. The workers at HCHS are extremely friendly and offer there help in any way that they can. HCHS could definitely use a shelter makeover however. They treat the animals wonderfully, and deserve a bigger space to work in. The foster program at HCHS is wonderful. It allows you to take an animal home and make sure everything goes well. You can also keep the pet until you get more money. This is an excellent program that I haven't seen anywhere else.

    Pros

    Friendly service, foster program, volunteer incentives.

    Cons

    Small building, limited resources

  • 160. Help Us Help Them!!

Go out and see for yourselves, it is a tiny place filled with lots of love and care for many, many unwanted and abandoned animals.

    Pros

    This staff is doing the absolute best with what they have.

    Cons

    The shelter is very limited on space, noise factor may deter people from coming out.

  • 161. help the Henderson Humane Society!

    by: kduncan

    The Henderson County Humane Society is a facility too small for what it is expected to take on. They desperately need and deserve a makeover. There are so many issues with things like size and location that hinder them in getting ahead. The Henderson Humane Society staff and volunteers are caring and dedicated to these animals. Many go above and beyond what is expected of them. They do everything they can to find them homes or rescues to go to.

    Pros

    Caring dedicated people, great potential

    Cons

    Size, location
