Help Make J.B. Ogle a No Kill Facility

UPDATE--MARCH 20, 2013-

The city of Jeffersonville along with J.B. Ogle, is ending their partnership with us early. To read more about this please see our press release.

J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter and No Kill Louisville are partnering to create a No Kill community in Clark County, IN, by August 2013. Scroll down to learn more about the partnership and how it will work.

Meanwhile, we need YOUR help to make this a reality - through adoption, fostering, volunteering, donating or by simply spreading the word.

Here's how you can do one or more of those things:

FOSTER

high capacity months, YOU can take part by fostering for

No Kill Louisville or for JB Ogle directly.  

VOLUNTEER

there's something YOU can do to help. Sign up now!

Hope Fund Pets from J.B. Ogle

We're currently helping Cookie, a German Shepherd who came down with pneumonia. She's now out of the hospital and taking several anti-fungal medications. Please help us continue to raise the remaining funds needed for her treatment. Learn more here.

About J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter

The J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter is owned and operated by the City of Jeffersonville, but provides animal shelter services (not animal control, however) to other areas of Clark County through a series of 

inter-local agreements.​


Due to the work of the Clark County Spay and Neuter Program and animal rescue organizations such as the Humane Association of Clark County, the Kentuckiana Animal Rescue Organization, and the Kentucky Humane Society, the number of dogs euthanized annually at the J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter has

decreased dramatically.


Now, almost all adoptable dogs that come to the shelter find homes, and those that are euthanized generally fall into one of two categories: unadoptable due to illness or aggression, or an animal owner paying the shelter to put down an old or sick dog. 

About Our Partnership

J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter and No Kill Louisville are partnering to create a No Kill community in Clark County, IN, by August 2013.


Through this collaboration, No Kill Louisville will work directly with J.B. Ogle’s staff to increase adoptions – both on- and off-site – through public outreach, new program formation, and volunteer recruitment; work to increase the number of foster families available to J.B. Ogle for infant, senior, and ill pets or when the shelter is to capacity; provide fundraising support; and work to increase awareness and further development of the shelter’s spay/neuter programs including Trap-Neuter-Release for feral/unowned cats.


In addition, No Kill Louisville will pull directly from J.B. Ogle for the organization’s (NKL’s) new feline adoption program, work to set up more offsite adoptions through events and partnering with local businesses, and promote J.B. Ogle as the “featured shelter” of No Kill Louisville’s annual Million Mutt March, taking place this year on Saturday, October 27, in Cherokee Park in Louisville, KY.


As part of this partnership, J.B. Ogle will have no financial responsibility to No Kill Louisville but will work in collaboration with the non-profit organization to create a No Kill community in Clark County. Both groups will continue to work with local rescues, including Southern Indiana Animal Rescue, which are vital to create a No Kill model within a shelter setting.


"I'm excited about partnering with No Kill Louisville and moving towards making J.B. Ogle a No Kill facility,” Sarah Green, Director of J.B. Ogle said. “To make this a reality, we will need the community to get involved by fostering, volunteering, donating, or simply educating their neighbors about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. By taking a proactive stance regarding our county's overpopulation problem, we can ensure that every adoptable pet finds a home. "


“No Kill Louisville will continue to support shelters and rescues throughout the region, as we’ve done since we began NKL in April 2010, whether or not they’ve implemented all or portions of the No Kill model,” Jessica Reid, President of No Kill Louisville said of the partnership agreement. “However, thanks to Sarah Green’s compassionate leadership, we will be focusing our organization’s efforts on helping her realize her vision of a No Kill facility. We welcome this opportunity to prove the No Kill model is not only effective, but that our community’s pet lovers are ready for it.”


Understanding “No Kill”

The term “No Kill” does not mean no pet is euthanized. It simply means no adoptable pet will be killed. The current No Kill movement, happening in cities and counties across the country, adheres to the idea that only those pets that are hopelessly ill or injured or that are dangerous to people or other pets should be humanely euthanized. The term “No Kill” is used rather than “No Euthanasia” to illustrate this difference in the current, national model for No Kill shelters and rescues. To earn the title of a “No Kill facility” means euthanasia is at ten percent or less of pet intake at a facility. J.B. Ogle currently takes in an average of 2,500 pets annually.
