Petco Foundation Gives KHS $9,000 to Save Lives

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) announced Oct. 20, 2020, that it has been awarded a $9,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its Love 120 initiative which aims to improve animal welfare in rural counties in Kentucky.

Based in Louisville, the Kentucky Humane Society is Kentucky’s largest pet adoption agency and proactive animal welfare organization. Through KHS’ Love 120 initiative, the nonprofit agency is focused on improving the lives of companion animals in all 120 Kentucky counties within the next decade. KHS will use the Petco Foundation investment to empower rural shelters to increase their lifesaving capacities. Last year, KHS worked with shelters in 35 of Kentucky’s 120 counties by transferring in animals for adoption and by providing much-needed give-back fees to many shelters.

Make Falling in Love Possible

Dogs like Mamaw need your love. This sweet senior found herself at the Kentucky Humane Society when she was turned in as a stray, and no one came for her.

When a dog or cat gets on in years, being turned in to a shelter is very difficult for them. They are lonely and confused. They don’t understand why they aren’t at home with their families, napping on a comfy bed.

It’s heartbreaking to see our senior dogs — like Mamaw — waiting patiently, looking out at everyone who comes in with hope in their eyes and a wag in their tails. The worst part is when their hope starts to fade. We’ve seen many senior animals give up.
