Welcome to PAWS Shelter Foundation, Inc.

PAWS (Pets.Are.Worth.Saving) Animal Foundation, Inc has been created to fund a new improved Hardin County Animal Shelter. Elizabethtown, Kentucky will soon be welcoming a new Hardin County Animal Shelter. 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 It was a wonderful blessing at the time but has become an outdated animal rescue facility that is not pet adoption friendly.

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.

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 please feel free to contact us.
