KHS is one of 95 shelters competing in the ASPCA $100K Challenge qualifying heat for grants totaling $300,000, including a top prize of $100,000.
“This is a great way to engage our community,” said Lori Redmon, President and CEO. “Winning this grant will go far in helping us continue our proactive spay/neuter, adoption and education programs.”
The 2011 ASPCA $100K Challenge is a nationwide competition for animal shelters (and their communities) aiming to get more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before. The first phase, the Qualifying Heat, sees registered shelters compete to get the most online votes from their supporters. The 50 shelters with the most votes become the official contestants for the 2011 ASPCA $100K Challenge.
The Kentucky Humane Society, founded in 1884, advocates the humane treatment of companion animals through leadership and proactive solutions to pet overpopulation, including adoptions, education and spay/neuter efforts.
