 If you have questions regarding spay/neuter assistance, please call Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter at (502) 437-4227. 




Buried Treasure Thrift Shop is owned and operated by Hardin County Pet Protection.  HCPP is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1988 with the goal of reducing pet overpopulation, promoting pet adoption and bettering the lives of pets in Hardin and surrounding rural Kentucky counties.  To date, HCPP has subsidized over 30,000 spay/neuter surgeries!


In September of 2016 we established a partnership between HCPP and Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter. FOHCAS now manages all spay/neuter applications and surgical scheduling which allows HCPP to focus on essential fund-raising efforts.

Proceeds from Buried Treasure Thrift Shop are one of our primary sources of funding.  Buried Treasure accepts donations of household items from the community.  The profit from the sale of those donated items is then gifted to FOHCAS to assist with spay/neuter surgeries as well as to other local animal charities.  All donations are tax deductible and vital to the continuation of the work we do.
