Petco Foundation Invests In Lifesaving Work of the Kentucky Humane Society
LOUISVILLE - March 27, 2018 – the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) announced it has been awarded a $22,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its spay/neuter services and foster care programs.
Located in Louisville, KHS is a nonprofit organization that offers pet adoptions, low-cost spay/neuter and veterinary services, and pet retention programs serving the Louisville Metro area.
The Petco Foundation investment will support free spay/neuter surgeries to pit bull-type dogs at the KHS S.N.I.P. Clinic, helping reduce the number of animals surrendered to local shelters. Funding will also support the KHS foster program; over 1,300 animals spend time in foster care each year before they are ready for adoption.
“We are so thrilled to partner with Petco Foundation in saving and improving the lives of shelter animals in Louisville,” said Lori Redmon, KHS President & CEO. “Their support means so much to the animals.”
