We are so excited that the Kentucky Humane Society won a $50,000 grant from Petco Foundation's Holiday Wishes Campaign - thanks to an inspiring story about how one little dog helped our shelter veterinarian learn that love is the best medicine.
Lillian Brooks is a volunteer at the S.N.I.P. Clinic assisting within the recovery department. Her primary duties include caring for kittens after their spay/neuter surgeries. Additionally, Lillian volunteers with Alley Cat Advocates, which partners with the S.N.I.P Clinic for spay/neuters. Lillian will often come back to the clinic in the evenings to prep the new kittens from Alley Cat Advocates for their surgeries and feed those that are awake.
Every day dogs, cats and horses come to the Kentucky Humane Society in need of love, attention and medical care. For an ordinary dog or cat, we spend an average of $250 to spay/neuter, vaccinate and microchip the animal, preparing them for their forever homes. Your donations make that possible. You help animals prepare to find homes. Thank you.
