With your participation, we were able to raise over $265,000 for the animals at the Kentucky Humane Society - making the 2019 Tuxes & Tails Gala the most successful in KHS history! Included in this total was over $80,000 that was raised for our TLC Fund, which pays for medical or behavioral help to our most fragile animals.
What do the results of the Gala mean? It means we can continue to provide the best care to over 6,000 dogs, cats and horses who arrive at our doors each year! Animals like:
- Kobe, a sweet, loving 7-year-old Labrador Retriever mix who underwent surgery this week to address a series of tumors wrapped around a back leg.
- Silver Fox, a beautiful and social 20-year-old Quarter Horse who is at our Equine Barn to gain weight before he is ready for adoption.
- Calen, a tiny kitten who came to KHS from a rural shelter last week and is growing stronger every day in a foster home.
We want to give a special thank you to our honorary chairs, Cynthia Parnell Collier and Dr. Allan Parnell, for their dedication to our lifesaving mission, and for their support which inspired so many others to give. Another big thank you to our in-kind donors for all their amazing and beautiful auction items that raised over $65,000! We also want to recognize our Tuxes & Tails Committee Chair Cathy Shircliff, who provided leadership and helped ensure that this Gala was one for the record books.
On behalf of the animals, thank you for your compassion!
Vice President of Outreach
