Because you are a supporter of the Kentucky Humane Society, we wanted you to be among the first to know about a dog we just saved.
An underweight dog who was found sleeping on trash bags a few miles from Maker’s Mark Distillery was rescued and brought to the Kentucky Humane Society.
Some animals have terribly difficult lives before they arrive at our doors. Danny is one of them. Read about his dramatic rescue and how you can help....
On September 26, a Kentucky Humane Society employee was driving home in Bullitt County when she learned a tiny kitten had been struck by a car. Sadly, no one had stopped to help.
On June sixth, a couple was awoken by screams and cries of panic coming from their backyard. What they saw sent them racing into their yard, horrified and speechless. A poor cat’s foot had been caught in between the boards of their privacy fence, leaving the distressed cat dangling upside down, trying to free himself. When they reached the fence they saw scratch marks, tuffs of cat hair and even teeth marks from where the desperate feline had tried to free himself. They made several attempts to free the cat’s leg with no success. Feeling the limb grow colder by the minute, they decided to take apart their fence and were finally able to free the trapped cat. The frantic couple then rushed the feline to the Kentucky Humane Society to see if anything could be done to help him.

The dogs, which range in age from 12 weeks to 10 years, are a variety of small breeds, including Yorkies, Shih tzus, Poodles, Maltese, Terriers and Hounds.
