Important Notice: Appointments Required

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Pets4Life Louisville has moved to an ‘Appointment-Only’ Curbside model. This is to provide a safer environment for both volunteers and clients. In addition, due to many community centers being closed, the number of clinics has been reduced. If your pet needs an appointment, please make a request by completing this Appointment Request Form.

Make a donation to help people keep their Pets4Life. We are an all-volunteer organization which means that 100% of your donation goes directly to helping animals.

  • $10 donation: Provides a microchip to reunite a lost pet with owner
  • $25 donation: Provides a wellness exam for a cat or dog
  • $50-$75 donation: Provides a spay/neuter to reduce unwanted births
  • $500 donation: Sponsor a Spay/Neuter clinic for 8-10 pets
  • $750 donation: Sponsor a Wellness clinic for up to 50 pets

Serving, Striving, Reaching & Meeting

Most people love their pets regardless of socioeconomic status or variations in culture

Serving the systemically poor who (along with their pets) have historically suffered in silence. Typically, their pets have never seen a vet or received basic vet care.

Striving to increase pet retention, reduce animal suffering & increase spay/neuter in
underserved areas of our city

Reaching people/pets in the most marginalized areas of Louisville who do not have access to vet care & who do not have the means to pay traditional veterinary fees

Meeting people where they are in their own neighborhoods creating a ripple effect of positive change in the community for long-term impact
