Welcome to PAWS Shelter Foundation, Inc.

Elizabethtown, Kentucky will soon be welcoming a new Hardin County Animal Shelter. PAWS (Pets.Are.Worth.Saving) Animal Foundation, Inc has been created to fund a new improved Hardin County Animal Shelter. A building has been purchased at 220 Peterson Drive, Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Designs are in works to make this a state of the art animal shelter and pet adoption facility serving all of Hardin County.

The old animal shelter was donated to the county in 1956 by Jan and Bill Schmidt. It was a wonderful blessing at the time but has become an outdated animal rescue facility that is not pet adoption friendly.

We advocate the humane treatment of all animals, and strive to create a warm shelter facility for the animals of Hardin County. For more information about PAWS Shelter Foundation, Inc. please feel free to contact us.
