Local Kohl's Gives Back to KHS Pets!

On Tuesday, June 11, a group of local Kohl’s employees volunteered their time at Dog Day at the Park, a fundraising event supporting the Kentucky Humane Society.

Dog Day at the Park is an annual fundraiser that allows people to enjoy a baseball game with their dog at Louisville Slugger Field. Human tickets are $8 and dog tickets are $3 with the tickets purchased for dogs benefiting the animals of the Kentucky Humane Society.

The wonderful team of volunteers from Kohl’s helped check in a record-high 859 dogs at the stadium and we couldn’t be more grateful for their help and support. Kohl’s is part of a Dollars for Doers program, where their company will donate money to KHS based on the hours their employees volunteer. Thanks to their volunteer efforts, KHS will be awarded a $500 donation. We want to say a special thank you to the Kohl’s employees for their impact on our shelter animals!

Does your company participate in a volunteer grant program such as Dollars for Doers? Examples of these companies include Humana, Sprint, The Gap Corporation and so much more. Not sure if your workplace participates? Let us know, and we can look up the information!

For companies with volunteer grant programs, we are happy to arrange a puppy or kitten visit to your office to talk more volunteer opportunities. Please contact our Volunteer Manager Savannah at [email protected] for more information.
