Mercer Humane Society



 On behalf of the Mercer Humane Society, we THANK YOU for viewing our website and hope this is the first of many visits! We may be small in numbers; however, we are BIG in determination and heart. We strive to make a positive difference in the lives of animals that so desperately need someone to care. We have many wonderful animals who are just waiting to come into your lives and bring love to you and your family so please check out our adoptable pets. We also offer advice and resources for questions/situations you may encounter. If you have questions, interest, time or talents to help us HELP the homeless animals in Mercer County, please contact us



We hold adoption events as often as we can. We will update the events as they are planned but if you are thinking of adopting contact us. 




This is Slick (now Stonewall) in his new home in Shelbyville, KY. He now has a 1 acre fenced yard to run in with his new greyhound buddies (that also came from Mercer Co. a few years ago). The family that adopted him worked with the Shamrock Greyhound rescue and are very knowledgeable about Greyhounds. They have also previously had a blind dog and know about that too. Stonewall has now visited the Canine Ophthalmologist in Cincinnati, OH. They have determined his vision can't be improved. Unfortunately the condition will progress and he will eventually lose the light and shadow vision he has. He is on treatment to slow that progression. We are so thrilled that this sweet boy has found such a wonderful family that is giving him all the things he deserves.
