Kentucky Humane Society receives grant to help tornado-affected areas

A new national initiative is helping Kentucky animal shelters affected by deadly December tornadoes. PetSmart Charities has awarded the Kentucky Humane Society a grant of $ 125,000 to provide financial assistance and supplies to local animal shelters in communities affected by tornadoes. Before the deadly storms, many of Kentucky’s shelters were in critical condition and lacking resources. The storm brought additional stress to housing, feeding and caring for animals displaced by the storms and providing essential supplies to pet owners. “It will really help pay those medical bills. Plus, this grant can also be used to buy vaccines, pet food. They can also use this money to provide financial support to pet owners in the community,” KHS spokesperson Andrea Blair said. “The grant will be distributed through the Kentucky Humane Society’s LOVE 120 program. The LOVE 120 program aims to positively impact pets in all 120 counties of Kentucky.”
