During National Volunteer Week 9 (April 19-25), we have a special message to our amazing volunteers.
Now more than ever, it’s crucial that the Kentucky Humane Society is here for companion animals and the people who love them.
Donations are being matched through Thursday, April 23, so your gift will have TWICE the impact. The Joanne W. Gauntt Charitable Foundation is matching donations to the Kentucky Humane Society, up to a total of $35,000, to help us address the COVID-19 crisis.
Dear Friend of Animals,
I’m excited to tell you about an amazing matching gift opportunity — and to introduce you to two little lives you can help.
Right now, thanks to three amazing animal advocates, we have a $30,000 Spring Matching Gift Challenge! Every gift the Kentucky Humane Society receives before April 14 will be matched, dollar for dollar, until the challenge is met.
Thanks to our foster families, the Kentucky Humane Society has won a $5,000 prize from Maddie’s Fund, a national family foundation established by Dave and Cheryl Duffield to revolutionize the status and well-being of companion animals, for having the most shelter animal adoptions of a large organization during Maddie’s Fund’s national Foster Express Challenge.
The Foster Express Challenge focused on short-term fostering of shelter animals (which ranged from two-hour field trips to staying with foster families for one to 14 days) November 22, 2019, through January 10, 2020. This Challenge was designed to help shelters get more dogs and cats out of the shelter during the hectic holiday season, get them more exposure and attract new foster caregivers.
