The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS), located in Louisville, KY, is Kentucky's oldest animal welfare organization, founded in 1884, and the state’s largest pet adoption agency.
We continue to support Kentucky Humane Society's efforts to assist Louisville dog owners to keep their dogs out of shelters and happy and healthy in their homes. The grant allows for 2,500 dog owners to receive advise through their Pet Help Line. 110 qualifying owners can then access vouchers for subsidized spay/neuter, preventatives, emergency medical costs, basic veterinary care, apartment pet deposits and temporary foster care for dogs owned by domestic abuse survivors and homeless people seeking secure housing. This year in addition we are funding free Pit-Bull spay/neuters for 85 dogs.
KHS is a champion for companion animals. Through leadership, education and proactive solutions, they aim to create more compassionate communities. KHS runs many outreach programs including temporary foster care for dogs owned by domestic abuse survivors and homeless people seeking secure housing, the running of a Pet Help Line dog owners, and financial assistance vouchers for low-income pet owners' veterinary bills.
