Triple Your Gift Before Midnight December 31
We are thrilled to announce that our good friends at the Purrfect Day Café have offered to match every dollar donated by midnight tomorrow, December 31, up to $5,000. This generous surprise match is in honor of the more than 7,300 cats and kittens from the Kentucky Humane Society who have found loving homes through the Purrfect Day Café in the past four years.
It is also in addition to a surprise match from our Board of Directors. They were so inspired that we met our $40,000 Petco Love match, they have offered to match donations made before midnight tomorrow up to $35,000! So your gift today will help three times as many Kentucky animals who have nowhere else to turn!
Thanks to generous supporters like you, we are able to help animals like Elijah. This one-year-old kitty came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded rural shelter in terrible shape. He was suffering from an upper respiratory infection, a urinary tract infection, and a polyp on the roof of his mouth. On top of all that, poor Elijah also had Feline Idiopathic Cystitis (FIC), a stress-related disorder, and Horner’s syndrome, a neurological disorder that affected his facial muscles. Determined to help this sweet kitty, our veterinary team gave him medicine to treat his infections and removed his painful polyp. We placed him in a quiet foster home to reduce his stress to allow him to heal from FIC and Horner’s syndrome. When Elijah recovered and returned to the shelter, he struggled to find the perfect family. After several weeks, we took Elijah to the Purrfect Day Café in Louisville, where he could meet and interact with many families every day to find the purrfect home – and it worked! Elijah met his forever family and is now in a loving home.
KHS has partnered with the Purrfect Day Café since 2018 to help find loving homes for thousands of cats and kittens like Elijah who come to KHS each year. Located in Louisville and Covington, the Purrfect Day Café has been pivotal in increasing the number of cat adoptions in our area and making a meaningful impact in reducing the number of homeless animals throughout Kentucky. Thanks to our partnership with the Purrfect Day Café, thousands more animals like Elijah will find their forever homes.
Your gift today will help KHS continue to give animals like Elijah the care they need until they are ready for their forever home. Whether they are adopted from KHS adoption centers or the Purrfect Day Café, your support gives deserving animals a second chance to live a happy and healthy life with a loving family.
