Every day dogs, cats and horses come to the Kentucky Humane Society in need of love, attention and medical care. For an ordinary dog or cat, we spend an average of $250 to spay/neuter, vaccinate and microchip the animal, preparing them for their forever homes. Your donations make that possible. You help animals prepare to find homes. Thank you.

Dear Friends of KHS,

Hi! My name is Beth, and I work for the Kentucky Humane Society. I’m also a donor. When I’m asked, “why do you give to the Kentucky Humane Society?” My first thought is how could I not give?

Today we share a foster's experience in her own words.

My name is Tina Dotson. I am a licensed optician and I manage the 20/20 Eye Care store in Shepherdsville, KY. I am married and have three grown children.
My husband, John, and I are volunteer fosters for the Kentucky Humane Society. I primarily foster pregnant or nursing mamas.

Eager to give back to her community, Jennifer Schoenegge joined our team of volunteers, assisting with our shelter’s unique Pet Photography Program. The primary purpose of Pet Photography is to take portraits of adoptable animals and place the images on the main website for the general public to view. These lifesaving photos contribute to many of our animal’s finding their forever homes!
