Funding will help to save more animal lives throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic
Louisville, KY — The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) for COVID-19 relief. The grant will help KHS fund essential lifesaving services during the pandemic.
The grant is part of the ASPCA’s national Relief and Recovery Initiative, which includes providing a minimum of $2 million in critical funding for animal welfare organizations whose programs, operations or fundraising capabilities have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
Dear Friend of the Animals,
The animals at the Kentucky Humane Society desperately need your help.
Hundreds of dogs, cats and horses are in need of lifesaving care, loving attention and forever homes.
And during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s become even more challenging to help these animals. Our resources are stretched to the limit.
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) has received a COVID-19 Relief Fund grant from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to help dog, cat and horse owners struggling during the coronavirus outbreak. The goal is to help keep animals in their homes and out of shelters, according to KHS.
