Whoa! The Chronicle has a new look!

Don't be scared. We've revamped our monthly newsletter, but our regular content hasn't changed. You will still find news on our latest fundraisers and events, profiles of featured pets, and links to all of our No Kill resources.

Join us for Paws in the Patio and eat like a No Kill Warrior

Join us this Tuesday, April 23rd, at Genghis Grill in Springhurst (4002 Towne Center Drive, across from Meijer) for Warrior Night Paws on the Patio, a fundraiser/adoption event. 20% of sales and 100% of tips from the cash tip jar on Warrior Night will be donated to No Kill Louisville. To show appreciation for your support (and your stomachs), No Kill board members and volunteers will help deliver your food. So come hungry! Genghis Grill bowls start at $8.49 (kids menu starts at $3.99) and can be customized with more than 80 different fresh ingredients.

A variety of our loving animals will be in attendance (outside, of course).
Please come, eat, meet, fall in love, and adopt with us this Tuesday.

Give to us, so we can give back

This Wednesday April 24th is Kentucky Gives Day, when every Kentuckian is urged to donate their money or time to a worthy nonprofit in the community. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to fund our popular Pet Food Bank for the rest of this year. Securing funds for the rest of the year means more than 800 low-income families will receive temporary assistance feeding their pets, and we can focus on our fostering, adopting, spaying/neutering and other no-kill missions. Give a little, or give a lot. Whatever you can helps. Click here for our Kentucky Gives Day page.

April's Featured Pets

Brownie is a male kitty that loves to play and be petted and held. According to his foster mommy, he's friendly with all other cats, loves toys and laser lights. Brownie is already neutered, vaccinated, litter box trained, FeLuk tested (neg) and ready to be adopted.

Learn more about Brownie.

If you are interested in
adopting Brownie, Ginger
or any of our loving


Ginger was taken to a local veterinarian to be euthanized because of her age. Luckily, the vet thought she still had a few good years left and asked us to foster her. We did, and now she's looking for her forever home.

Housebroken and up-to-date with shots, Ginger gets around pretty well but some arthritis makes stairs a bit tricky. At night, her old eyes give her some trouble because of cataracts, but during the day she sees reasonably well.

Can you give her the home she deserves for her twilight years?

Volunteer of the Month: Stacy Mercord

Stacy Mercord

Stacy Mercord grew up in Colorado and moved to Louisville after working in Europe as a school librarian. She is an animal lover who shares her home with a therapy dog named Sam and Tria, who she describes as "the most precocious little three-legged cat." When Stacy heard that one of our four-legged best friends is killed every nine seconds in America, she knew she had to help stop that. She volunteers with the fundraising committee and also helps with various events throughout the year. She told us, "I know we can all work together to make Louisville one of the many no kill cities in America!"

With volunteers like Stacy, we know we can, too.

Be like Stacy. Get Involved.

Here are a few ways you can:

  • DONATE. We are setup for one-time gifts as well as reoccuring monthly donations.
  • VOLUNTEER. We hold events several times a month and are always in need.
  • FOSTER. No Kill Lou doesn't operate a shelter. All of our rescues are housed temporarily by dedicated fosters.
  • LIKE. Our Facebook page is the best place for current news, adoptions and info.
  • LEARN. No Kill Louisville envisions a community where no adoptable pet or feral cat is killed. Find out exactly what that means... and how we can achieve it.

Important reminders about our Pet Food Bank

Effective May 1st, the Pet Food Bank will be open on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month only. Hours will be expanded and run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Also beginning next month, our Pet Food Bank assistance will be income-based. You will need to show proof of your household income and be within the guidelines to participate in the program. If you want more information on the income limits, please e-mail Susan at a4katpal@yahoo.com.

One last reminder: No pets are allowed in the Pet Food Bank OR the parking lot of the building. We will not serve anyone who leaves their pet in their vehicle.
