Fort Knox Stray Animal Shelter


The Fort Knox Stray Animal Facility houses all stray animals found on Fort Knox. Our mission is to place dogs and cats in responsible, loving homes; provide humane education; and encourage spaying and neutering. Our staff also ensures that any obvious medical conditions are treated promptly and the animals are fed a proper diet. All pets brought to the facility will be spayed or neutered, dewormed, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested for:

  • Cats: feline leukemia virus, feline immunodeficiency virus, and heartworm negative.
  • Dogs: heartworm negative (adult dogs).

Pet Adoption

Our animals are adopted for the sole purpose of being permanently placed in a responsible, loving homes. Animals adopted from our facility will not be resold, abused, neglected, and used for fighting or laboratory research. All of our animals have been spayed/neutered, dewormed, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested Feline Leukemia Virus/Feline Immunodeficiency Virus /heartworm negative (cats) or heartworm negative (adult dogs). We cannot guarantee, nor can we be responsible for the health of the animal once it’s been adopted. Spaying or neutering is a requirement for adoption. If the animal has not reached the proper age to be spayed or neutered, we will set a time for you to bring the animal back to us so the operation can be performed.

All animals brought to the facility are held for five working days before they become available for adoption.

We have many cats and dogs available for immediate adoption. Please help give one of these animals the love and care they deserve.

Adoption Fees: Dog - $85 | Cat - $75
