The Purrfect Day Café opened on International Cat Day on August 8, 2019. Since then, more than 1,000 Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) cats have been adopted through the café – blowing past the goal of 300 annual adoptions that Purrfect Day Café and KHS set!

Dear Friend of the Animals,

When you look back on challenging times in your life, what do you recall most?

For me, it’s the helpers. Those people who saw I was struggling, reached out, and gave me a hand. They helped turn a difficult time into one of hope and healing.

The first Saturday in May is unforgettable in Kentucky, full of celebrations and traditions.

This year, we are inviting you to create a new tradition: during Derby, could you make a donation to help horses at the Kentucky Humane Society?

We want to tell you about Frannie—an orphaned foal we rescued when she was just three days old.

Dear Friend,

Knowing how much you care about innocent animals, I’m excited to tell you about an amazing matching gift opportunity – and to introduce you to our miracle kitten, Cheddar.

UPDATE JANUARY 2020: We are grateful to the ASPCA for their support of our Horse Help Line in 2019. The grant has ended, and we do not have funding to provide financial aid to struggling horse owners. However, we can still provide free advice and may be able to make referrals to other agencies who can help. 

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) has announced a new project to help keep owned horses out of risk and in their homes. The project is funded by a $50,000 grant from the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
