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.”

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.

Dear Friend of the Animals,

At just six weeks of age, Ruby had already known a lifetime of heartache.

She was abandoned by her owners in rural Kentucky. By the time her rescuers found her and brought her to the Kentucky Humane Society, both of her front legs were broken, and the tiny puppy was fighting for her life.

Without help, Ruby wouldn’t survive much longer. She needed urgent medical care to relieve her pain — and plenty of food, and loving attention to regain her strength and spirit.
