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 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. Our grant enables 2,500 dog owners to receive advice through KHS's Pet Help Line so that each family is offered resources to help them keep their pets as alternatives to surrender. In addition, the grant will help KHS to provide 110 low-income pet owners with financial assistance to enable them to keep their dogs healthy and in the home. Assistance comes in the form of vouchers which provide access to subsidized spay/neuter surgeries, 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. Furthermore, Dogs Trust USA is also providing funds to support free Pit-Bull spay/neuters for 85 dogs.
