Participants invited to register, raise money, and walk between Aug. 7-9 to support homeless animals; register by July 22 to get a T-shirt
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Kentucky Humane Society is changing its annual Waggin’ Trail Walk for the Animals to a virtual event. This means participants can choose to walk in their own neighborhoods, at a nearby park or even on a treadmill at home to help KHS save more lives.
After 23 successful years of partnering with Feeders Supply, KHS to centralize adoptions at three locations and increase pet retention services
LOUISVILLE KY – For 23 years, the Kentucky Humane Society and Feeders Supply have partnered to find loving homes for shelter dogs and cats, with Feeders Supply stores providing space for KHS adoption centers.
But with changes in animal welfare, KHS has decided to centralize their adoptions to three key locations: their East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane, their Sam Swope Pet Treatment & Lifesaving Center on Steedly Drive, and adoptions at Purrfect Day Café on Bardstown Road.
Funding will help to save more animal lives throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic
Louisville, KY — The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) for COVID-19 relief. The grant will help KHS fund essential lifesaving services during the pandemic.
The grant is part of the ASPCA’s national Relief and Recovery Initiative, which includes providing a minimum of $2 million in critical funding for animal welfare organizations whose programs, operations or fundraising capabilities have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
The Kentucky Humane Society is caring for an extremely emaciated Chihuahua with a body condition score of 1 out of 9, which is the lowest score an animal can have and still be alive. Her temperature was just 90 degrees (11 degrees lower than normal) when she arrived on June 15.
