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.
Funding will help to save more animal lives throughout the COVID-19 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 (KHS) has received a COVID-19 Relief Fund grant from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to help dog, cat and horse owners struggling during the coronavirus outbreak. The goal is to help keep animals in their homes and out of shelters, according to KHS.
