 Boyle County Animal Control? 

Danville-Boyle County Humane Society?

What’s the difference? 

Although we're separate entities, Danville-Boyle County Humane Society (DBCHS) & Boyle County Animal Control work closely together. We share a building and phone number, resources, and a concern for the animals - and people! - in our community.  


Boyle County Animal Control is the government agency responsible for reuniting lost pets with their owners and enforcing laws pertaining to domestic animals in Boyle County. 

Contact them if you find a stray pet, lost your pet, suspect neglect or abuse, or have an encounter with an aggressive cat or dog. 

Stray animals are held for a minimum of five (5) days before they can be transferred to Danville-Boyle County Humane Society for adoption or rescue placement.

Boyle County Animal Control can be reached at 859.238.1117 during operating hours

Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  For more information on Animal Control visit the county website at

DBCHS finds new homes or reputable rescues for abandoned pets in Danville-Boyle County. In addition, we promote the humane treatment of companion animals through community education and spay/neuter programs.


DBCHS is a non-profit 501(c)3 that relies on donations, fundraisers, and grants to accomplish our mission of finding loving homes for the dogs and cats in our care. All cats and dogs will see the vet, be spayed/neutered, and vaccinated before adoption. 


If you are interested in adopting a pet from DBCHS please check out our adoptable animals here or call 859.238.1117 Monday - Friday between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. You can also visit our Facebook page.

 Thank you for considering adoption!
