Director’s Message

Welcome to the Animal Care Society

I would first like to thank our many supporters who have helped us continue our mission of finding forever homes for hundreds of dogs and cats every year. As the first no-kill animal shelter in Louisville, we are proud to say that we have saved the lives of over 6,000 animals!

I started in the position of Executive Director in June of 2021, and I have been amazed at the community’s support of animal welfare. Our monthly goal is to find 40 new homes for our dogs and cats, and every month the ACS staff & volunteers have been far exceeding this goal! We hope that annually we are able to impact the lives of over 500 animals.

One of my favorite shelter stories since starting was that of Gigi. One year old Gigi found her way to us when her Louisville family lose their home. A week after arriving at ACS we discovered that she was pregnant, so we immediately put her in a foster home. She soon had 9 puppies! Nine! Thankfully she was an incredible mom, and all puppies and Gigi were able to find their “fur”ever homes.

One of our newest developments that I am very excited for is our new volunteer program that we will have implemented by the end of 2021. We will be offering 12 new specific volunteer positions, offering the community the ability to make a difference in the lives of our animals. If you are interested in learning about our all new volunteer program, please reach out at

Animal Care Society is supported solely by contributions, grants, bequests, and annual fundraising efforts. We receive no government funding, so if you are able please consider giving to our Spirit Fund, sponsoring a dog or cat, or putting ACS in your will. Your donations better the lives of so many 4 legged friends that find their way to ACS.

The Animal Care Society is proud of what we have accomplished, rehoming thousands of pets into forever loving homes.  We could not have accomplished this without community support and our loyal members.  We invite and encourage anyone, who is not a member of ACS, to join us in our quest to continue our mission and to meet the demands of homeless pets in our community, who cannot speak for themselves.

Thank You,

Jennifer Tsegai
Executive Director
