The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is reminding people to check their car hoods for outside cats seeking warmth this winter, after an injured kitten was surrendered to the nonprofit animal shelter this week.
“In cold weather, outside cats sometimes crawl into car hoods seeking the warmth of a recently turned off engine. A bang on your car hood or a beep of your horn before starting the engine can give cats a chance to escape or make their presence known and can help save lives this winter,” said Megan Decker, KHS Media Manager.

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.

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 at 241 Steedly Drive, and adoptions at Purrfect Day Café on Bardstown Road.
Meet adoptable dogs and cats by booking an appointment! To facilitate social distancing, the Kentucky Humane Society is now offering adoptions by appointment at our East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and at our Sam Swope Pet Treatment & Lifesaving Center at 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. We are unable to allow walk-ins at this time, and appointments must be booked in advance.
Dear Friend of the Animals,
The animals at the Kentucky Humane Society desperately need your help.
Hundreds of dogs, cats and horses are in need of lifesaving care, loving attention and forever homes.
And during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s become even more challenging to help these animals. Our resources are stretched to the limit.
Now more than ever, it’s crucial that the Kentucky Humane Society is here for companion animals and the people who love them.
Donations are being matched through Thursday, April 23, so your gift will have TWICE the impact. The Joanne W. Gauntt Charitable Foundation is matching donations to the Kentucky Humane Society, up to a total of $35,000, to help us address the COVID-19 crisis.
Dear Friend of Animals,
I’m excited to tell you about an amazing matching gift opportunity — and to introduce you to two little lives you can help.
Right now, thanks to three amazing animal advocates, we have a $30,000 Spring Matching Gift Challenge! Every gift the Kentucky Humane Society receives before April 14 will be matched, dollar for dollar, until the challenge is met.
