We are excited to share that Jean Frazier, a dedicated animal lover, has generously offered to match every donation we receive before midnight tomorrow, January 13, up to $5,000. This generous match is in honor of our work to support Eastern Kentucky shelters and animals as they continue to struggle after July’s catastrophic floods. Please donate today to help even more animals in Eastern Kentucky.
Last week, we took in 29 large homeless dogs from rural Eastern Kentucky shelters in the flood region. Their communities are financially devastated, there’s a shortage of safe housing, and pets are being surrendered to shelters that are overwhelmed with homeless animals. By taking in these dogs, we are helping make space in the rural shelters so they can support their communities and reduce animal suffering in the region.
The dogs arrived at KHS in good spirits and gobbled down every bite of food we offered. We medically assessed each one and discovered that twelve were suffering from upper respiratory infections (URI). One, whom we named Kenny, had trouble standing and was so weak we had to take him straight into emergency care. We learned that his URI had progressed to a dangerous case of pneumonia. We are thankful that our veterinary team was able to treat Kenny and the other sick dogs, and they are all on the road to a full recovery. All 29 of these deserving dogs are being cared for at KHS or in foster homes until they are ready for adoption.
Your support makes it possible for KHS to be there for shelters and animals in Louisville and throughout Kentucky when they are in crisis and have nowhere else to turn. Please donate today and together, we can save even more animals in our community. We are so grateful for your support. Thank you.
