Yesterday morning, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear issued an acclamation at the State Capitol that January is EthanAlmighty Shelter Animal Awareness Month. The acclamation is in recognition of Ethan’s 2022 Hero Dog Award and the attention he’s brought to shelter animals. The goal is to inspire peole to support and adopt from local animal shelters.
Our longtime supporters at the Frazier-Joy Family Foundation are so inspired by Ethan’s work on behalf of shelter animals that they have offered to match every donation made to KHS by midnight, January 29, up to $29,000! Ethan’s rescue anniversary is on January 29 – the day two years ago that he was left dying of starvation in KHS’ parking lot. Please donate today in Ethan’s honor to have your gift doubled, so we can be there for every animal who comes to our door in need of nutritious food, lifesaving medical care and human kindness.
“I am beyond thrilled that January is EthanAlmighty Shelter Animal Awareness Month,” said Jeff Callaway, Ethan’s Poppa. “This resilient dog who was left in a parking lot to die is now being recognized by the Governor for the incredible work he has done to help shelter animals in his home state and across the country.”
It has never been more important to support and adopt from local shelters. Shelters across Kentucky and the country are experiencing an increase in the number of animals entering their shelters while adoptions are down. In fact, the number of stray and owner surrender intakes nationwide are some of the highest they have been in years.
As the state’s largest adoption agency, we take in animals from overcrowded shelters in Louisville and Kentucky regularly to free up space and save lives. Please donate today so we can continue to be there for our shelter partners and help find loving homes for the animals in our community.
