“This crucial grant will allow us to continue to offer our mission programs, including pet adoptions, spay/neuter and wellness services to owned pets, and assistance to needy families during this critical time,” says Andrea Blair, PR and Marketing Director.
KHS is Kentucky’s largest pet adoption agency and spay/neuter provider. It is also the largest provider of proactive programs designed to help keep pets in their homes and out of shelters.
“In addition to the unprecedented challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has created for people, it is also putting animals at risk by straining essential owner and shelter resources,” said ASPCA President and CEO Matt Bershadker. “Considering the vital role pets play in our lives – especially in times of crisis and stress – it’s extremely important to safeguard their welfare as much as we can, and we are grateful to the animal welfare community for stepping up, thinking creatively and courageously, and forging new paths to meet this need. Through the ASPCA Relief & Recovery Initiative, we are helping animals stay healthy and safe as we weather this crisis together.”
