KHS, ASPCA and GreaterGood.org Support Rural Shelters
Almost every day of the week, needy animals are transported to the Kentucky Humane Society’s adoption program from overcrowded shelters. This journey helps KHS save the lives of over 3,500 animals a year.
“Often, rural shelters struggle with too many unwanted pets coming in and not enough resources to care for them,” explains Kristin Seaman, KHS Transport Manager.
To assist Kentucky’s rural shelters, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) and GreaterGood.org have both contributed $10,000 to KHS’ rural transport program.
KHS will give the $20,000 to partner shelters in the form of free vaccines and preventives, gas cards, and funds that shelters can use for spay/neuter surgeries for owned pets or medical care for shelter animals.
“The goal is to help rural shelters create proactive, long-term solutions to reduce overcrowding and ensure that more pets find loving homes,” says Kristin.
