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.
March in Louisville brings spring flowers, showers – and the arrival of kittens. The Purrfect Day Café is helping the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) prepare for incoming felines by hosting a Kitten Shower on Sunday, March 29, 3-6 pm. Purrfect Day Café is located at 1741 Bardstown Road in the Highlands.
Now is a fantastic time to adopt a feline companion! Most adult cats at KHS can be adopted for just $25. Cats who are part of this discount have "$25" after their names at www.kyhumane.org/adoptable-cats. Visit cats on special at our East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and at seven Feeders Supply stores.
The Kentucky Humane Society’s S.N.I.P. Clinic wants you to ring in the New Year by making a resolution to neuter your male cat during their “Happy Neuter Year” campaign. In January, it’s just $20 to neuter a male cat at the KHS S.N.I.P. Clinic.
“Neutering male pets is a simple surgery that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, fighting, and urine marking,” says Karen Koenig, KHS Vice President of Animal Welfare. “It also guarantees your pet does not add to the pet overpopulation problem.”
On October 9 the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) received 14 cats who were rescued by Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) during their “Operation Feline Freedom." The cats were removed from a former cat sanctuary in Morris Chapel, TN.
A number of the cats arrived at KHS suffering from upper respiratory and eye infections, possibly due to overcrowding in the home where they were rescued, according to Andrea Blair, KHS spokesperson.
The Purrfect Day Café opened on International Cat Day on August 8, 2019. Since then, more than 1,000 Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) cats have been adopted through the café – blowing past the goal of 300 annual adoptions that Purrfect Day Café and KHS set!
Purrfect Day Cafe entered a video for Jackson Galaxy's Cat Pawsitive National High-Five Day Contest - and now we need YOU to vote to help the Kentucky Humane Society win a grant award!
