Six-week-old Jewel is an adorable tabby who came to the Kentucky Humane Society at the end of September. When little Jewel arrived at KHS, she was under a month old and in dire shape. The poor kitten was suffering from multiple fractures to her ribs, pelvis and vertebrae—most likely caused by being either stepped on or kicked. She was extremely lethargic, couldn’t stand or walk, and in so much pain that her eyes would swell with tears any time our staff gingerly picked her up to feed her. We weren’t sure whether Jewel would have the strength to survive, but we knew she deserved a chance.
Every day, the Kentucky Humane Society takes in needy dogs, cats and horses. Whatever their experiences were before they come to our doors, our goal is to help them become healthy, happy companion animals who are ready for adoption.
Concerned citizens have donated $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) who shot Ziggy, a 5-week-old kitten, with a BB gun.
Kentucky Humane Society offers month-long special in honor of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is celebrating Adopt a Shelter Cat Month by waiving adoption fees on all cats age one year and older the entire month of June.
The special is valid at all 10 KHS adoption centers, including its East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and nine adoption centers in Feeders Supply stores.
UPDATE: Prince, Queenie and their kittens who were found abandoned in containers last week on KHS property are all doing well. The three older kittens who were found with Prince were determined to be around four months of age and have been named Licorice, Thorne and Salem. After receiving a clean bill of health from our veterinarian, all three kittens have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
