In August of this year, Hurricane Harvey devastated the state of Texas and left many animals in dire need of help. A small, dedicated team of staff members from the Kentucky Humane Society had the privilege of helping for nine days with the local shelters in Houston after the storm. During that time, KHS's team of four cared for the displaced animals and people by transporting pets and goods, feeding wildlife, cleaning and socializing. They fell in love with all of the pets they saw but one special dog stuck out in their minds- Betty Boop.
The Kentucky Humane Society helps dogs, cats and horses from Louisville and throughout Kentucky. KHS also assists communities hit hard by disaster, like Texas and Florida. Your donations allow us to do this, and we appreciate you for it! But can we ask for a little more?
We've been asked to help animals impacted by hurricanes. Here's what we're doing and how you can help.
From now through August 31, 2017, dogs 50 pounds or over and adult cats will have their adoption fees cut in half.
Did you know that the Kentucky Humane Society takes in pets from overcrowded shelters throughout Kentucky? Often these animals have little chance of adoption in their home communities due to overcrowding, limited adoption interest or scarce resources for medical care.
He was curled up next to the spare tire in the trunk. The person dropping him off did not want to dirty his car by allowing this dog the space and dignity of a drive inside the car. We rushed the emaciated Boxer mix into our veterinary office and examined him. Chief, a dog who should have been 60 pounds, came to the Kentucky Humane Society weighing only 31 pounds. Our veterinarian wondered aloud how he had survived this long. He was days, perhaps hours, away from death.
The pressure sores on his body told of a life in a small crate. His legs trembled as he tried to stand and walk. We acted quickly to provide him with the fluids and nutrition he could handle.
