Kenton County Animal Services (KCAS) has reached an overpopulation of dogs in their care and is looking to the public for help in the form of adoptions, fosters and rescues.

In January, KCAS took in 194 animals, 117 dogs and 77 cats. Compared to January 2022, this is a 52% increase. 

The facility can safely house 60 dogs and 60 cats. There are 94 dogs on site right now. To see all available animals, visit the KCAS adoption site.

The adoption fee for pets is usually $125; however, through Feb. 5, the fee is reduced to $50. Each animal receives a first round of vaccinations, a flea/tick preventative, dewormer, a microchip (registered to the new adopter), and is spayed/neutered. 

When you foster with KCAS, they provide supplies and medical care; you provide a loving temporary home. Learn more and apply here.

Rescues who are able to provide assistance, please contact KCAS Director Kelsey Maccombs at [email protected]

If you have lost a pet, you can view a list of found dogs that have been brought to the shelter online here.

For questions or more information, call KCAS at (859) 356-7400, or email at [email protected]. Kenton County Animal Services is located at 1020 Mary Laidley Drive in Covington.
