Kentucky Humane Society was founded in 1884 in Louisville, Kentucky's oldest and largest pet adoption agency. We have been supporting their Pet Retention of Owned Dogs Program since 2019, to offer resources to owners who are considering surrendering their dogs. This year 115 dogs will benefit from services spanning from routine wellness vouchers to temporary pet boarding and pet apartment deposits. In addition, 150 dogs and their owners will be provided with post-adoption behaviour and training support, to minimise behaviour related kennel returns. Pit Bull type dogs make up a disproportionate number of canine intakes at shelters in the state. We will also be contributing to curbing this through the free spay and neuter of 150 owned Pit Bull type dogs in Louisville.
