Every day, the Kentucky Humane Society takes in needy dogs, cats and horses. Whatever their experiences were before they come to our doors, our goal is to help them become healthy, happy companion animals who are ready for adoption.
Concerned citizens have donated $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) who shot Ziggy, a 5-week-old kitten, with a BB gun.
Kentucky Humane Society offers month-long special in honor of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is celebrating Adopt a Shelter Cat Month by waiving adoption fees on all cats age one year and older the entire month of June.
The special is valid at all 10 KHS adoption centers, including its East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and nine adoption centers in Feeders Supply stores.
UPDATE: Prince, Queenie and their kittens who were found abandoned in containers last week on KHS property are all doing well. The three older kittens who were found with Prince were determined to be around four months of age and have been named Licorice, Thorne and Salem. After receiving a clean bill of health from our veterinarian, all three kittens have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
On Monday afternoon, a Kentucky Humane Society staff member found two containers taped shut in front of a locked door at our main facility. The first box contained a gray mother cat, whom we named Queenie, and 6 young kittens. The second box had a male cat with 3 older kittens. We named the adult cat Prince. While the person who abandoned the cats had tried to poke holes in the plastic container, none of the holes actually penetrated the walls, leaving the cats with no airflow. Heat rolled out of the container as we cut it open. However, we were relieved to see that all the cats survived their time in these makeshift ovens and appear to be healthy.
