Our History

Pets In Need Society (PINS) is non-profit, 501(c)(3), total volunteer organization in Meade County Kentucky that was started in January 2000.  At its inception, a small group of caring and compassionate people met to address the deplorable conditions at the Meade County animal shelter.  Led by founding President, Karen Kennedy, and Vice President, Deb Sobel, the group quickly organized and planned for a major renovation of the shelter.  By November 2001, PINS volunteers and supporters had transformed the once neglected, disease ridden dog pound into a functional, clean and healthy animal shelter where residents can recover lost pets or adopt new ones.  It took hundreds of hours of volunteer labor and $55,000 of donated funds and materials for the shelter to become a respectable facility for Meade County residents.
