Dec. 3 is #GivingTuesday! In the next 24 hours, we want to do something big. With YOUR help, we hope to raise $10,000. This is enough to prepare an additional 40 animals for adoption. DONATE NOW

It takes $250 to provide each animal with food, medical care and a warm place to stay until they find their forever home. On this national day of giving, will you make a lifesaving gift to help the dogs, cats and horses in our care? We will share our progress throughout the day on Facebook and Twitter.

Let’s see how many more animals can we can save because of you and other kind donors!

Dear Friend of the Animals,

At just six weeks of age, Ruby had already known a lifetime of heartache.

She was abandoned by her owners in rural Kentucky. By the time her rescuers found her and brought her to the Kentucky Humane Society, both of her front legs were broken, and the tiny puppy was fighting for her life.

Without help, Ruby wouldn’t survive much longer. She needed urgent medical care to relieve her pain — and plenty of food, and loving attention to regain her strength and spirit.

A number of the cats arrived at KHS suffering from upper respiratory and eye infections, possibly due to overcrowding in the home where they were rescued, according to Andrea Blair, KHS spokesperson.

To anyone who has worked with Miniature horses, it’s no surprise that these little horses can have mighty big personalities.

This is especially true with Henry, Maggie and Hope.

These three “minis,” as Miniature horses are often called, were more than a handful. These horses had never been trained, and after their owner died, they were taken in by another relative. Vanessa and her boyfriend had no experience with horses, but they loved their uncle, and they wanted to try to take care of the minis in honor of him.
