KHS and 15 other animal shelters assist Humane Society of the Delta in Helena AR

Last week, the Kentucky Humane Society and 15 other animal shelters joined Bissell Pet Foundation on an urgent rescue mission in southeast Arkansas. The shelters transported out 240 dogs and 30 cats from the Humane Society of the Delta, an overcrowded and under-resourced shelter in Helena, where more than 100 dogs were living in outdoor kennels.

The animals will be going to shelters across the country, where they will be placed for adoption. KHS took in 11 dogs, including six who were ill from heartworms and a dog needing an amputation. KHS also transported an additional 10 dogs to Lexington Humane Society.

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is reminding people to check their car hoods for outside cats seeking warmth this winter, after an injured kitten was surrendered to the nonprofit animal shelter this week.

“In cold weather, outside cats sometimes crawl into car hoods seeking the warmth of a recently turned off engine. A bang on your car hood or a beep of your horn before starting the engine can give cats a chance to escape or make their presence known and can help save lives this winter,” said Megan Decker, KHS Media Manager.
