Pets4Life Louisville

Pets4Life Louisville is a 501C3 non-profit group that provides animal wellness resources & information to under-served pet families. Programming is modeled after the Humane Society of the United States’ Pets for Life initiative. We provide resources to help people keep their pets4life!   We hold pop-up vet clinics with a focus on 8 Louisville zip codes that do not have any veterinary clinics. Look for us in a neighborhood near you!

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

2024 Pets4Life Louisville News

In 2024 we are working on these initiatives:

Wellness & Preventative Clinics in our target zip codes. We will continue offering two main types of events: Vaccine Clinics & Wellness Clinics in our 8 target zip code areas. These clinics offer basic wellness and preventative care. IMPORTANT: We are not equipped to provide emergency vet care or provide more complex services such as diagnostic testing, surgeries, and treatment for chronic conditions. In addition, we cannot do not provide funding for these services.

Establishing the Pets4Life Petcare Hub: We are in the process of trying to respond better to pet family needs through the establishment of a Petcare Hub Customer Service Center. This will be the portal to accessing Pets4Life services as well as providing information and help to connect people to other pet resources . As of now we are providing clinic sign-ups and building our contact list, and providing pet resources, but the service center will expand over time. Please visit the Pets4Life Petcare Hub.

Petsmart Incubator Grant: Working with Petsmart Charities and University of Denver IHAC, we are conducting research in the 40210 zip code area. The year 2024 is focused on establishing relationships and understanding the true needs of the community with the goal of finding solutions for sustainable pet and vet care in the future.
