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.

Dec 28, 2019: Late last night, the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) received a pregnant mare and her weanling colt from the same herd where 20 horses were found shot dead on a strip mine near the Pike and Floyd County line on Dec. 17.

The two survivors are recovering at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Willow Hope Farm in Simpsonville KY.

KHS Rescue Horse “Willow” is from This Same Herd

UPDATE: on Dec. 23, additional horses were found shot and killed on this strip mine. This brings the total number of horses killed from this herd to 20.

The Kentucky Humane Society is joining other animal welfare groups in asking the public for help finding the people responsible for killing 15 horses in Eastern Kentucky.

The horses – including pregnant mares and foals – were found shot dead on a strip mine on the Pike and Floyd County line Dec. 17. Local authorities believe the horses were hunted down and shot with a low caliber rifle.

The Kentucky Humane Society's Equine Program now has a new home. On Thursday, October 24, KHS dedicated Willow Hope Farm in Simpsonville. The farm is named after Willow, a recently found abandoned and extremely malnourished horses. Her will to survive inspired KHS  to name their new barn in her honor.
