What Your Attendance Supports

Proceeds from Tuxes & Tails benefit cats and dogs at the Kentucky Humane Society, a local nonprofit animal welfare agency that finds loving homes for more than 6,000 pets each year and helps the community by spaying or neutering more than 10,000 pets annually at its donor-supported S.N.I.P. Clinic. KHS saves every adoptable pet it takes in. Last year more than 90% of the pets who came through our doors found their forever homes.

About Last Year's Gala

A big thank you to everyone who came out to our Tuxes & Tails Gala in 2015, at the Galt House! 

The evening was a huge success, with happy and enthusiastic supporters of the Kentucky Humane Society's mission. We couldn't have done it without all the wonderful volunteers who pitched in and without our generous sponsors and businesses and individuals who donated items to our auctions. Thank you to all who were involved in this event!


Help Me Heal

In 2015 KHS was able to save more than 313 cats and dogs medically fragile pets and 802 behaviorally challenged pets thanks to donations made to Help Me Heal, which pay for medical and behavior help for our most fragile pets. Through this fund, we have helped pets like Dante, a beautiful young Pit Bull Terrier with a serious heart defect, and Trucker, a cat hurled from a car and left for dead. Through this fund, we have saved lives.  Donate to Help Me Heal
