Petal, Saved by the Help Me Heal
Learn about Petal, an amazing pug puppy who overcame severe mange thanks to donations made to our Help Me Heal Fund. Over the last year KHS was able to save more than 200 cats and dogs thanks to donations made to this fund, which pay for medical and behavior help for our most fragile pets.
Donations Help Our Most Fragile Pets
Many pets arrive at the Kentucky Humane Society with broken spirits or bodies. Some come to KHS in pain from untreated illness, disease or traumatic accidents. Some exhibit behavior issues such as fear or anxiety. Other have been physically or emotionally harmed by humans.
To help our most fragile pets, KHS has a special donor-supported, restricted fund called the "Help Me Heal" Fund (formerly called "Fund a Need"). The mission of this fund is to heal the bodies and spirits of our neediest pets - those who require medical diagnosis and treatment or advanced behavior help before they can be adopted.
Over the last year KHS used more than $37,000 in Help Me Heal donations to save 200 of our neediest dogs and cats. With so many special needs pets in our care, this fund is getting low.
