There are just too many-too many unwanted puppies, kittens, dogs, cats, rabbits, and more. I thought this 7 years ago when I became the president of the Lexington Humane Society (LHS) and it remains true today.

Thankfully, the hard work LHS has put forth over the years and the steadfast focus we have on offering free and low-cost spay/neuter programs to prevent unwanted litters; education programs to encourage life-long responsible pet ownership; and the promotion of adoption as the best option have dramatically decreased the amount of stray, unwanted, and relinquished animals we receive each year.

While we have had a significant decrease in the number of homeless animals in our community, there are still too many discarded animals in need of our help-and not just in our immediate area. Our standard of care and adoption success rate are so well respected, we are inundated with requests to help with crisis situations across Kentucky. I'm proud to say that thanks to our accomplishments and success locally, we are able to reach out and help wherever the need may be.
