You give us the resources to continue helping animals.
At KHS, we recognize that animal shelters give homeless and unwanted pets a second chance. But it does not prevent the continual cycle of pets entering into shelters and rescues each day.
We have identified the critical causes of pet abandonment, neglect and overpopulation and have concentrated our efforts on prevention. Through strategic programs and services, we have been able to keep pets with the families they already have and prevent new litters of unwanted puppies and kittens.
Our prevention-focused approach to these issues has resulted in few animals entering our local shelter, a significant reduction in shelter euthanasia, and accessibility to life-saving spay/neuter and essential veterinary services for low-income and impoverished pet owners.
By the numbers
In 2020, your support helped us achieve these primary service metrics:
> 3,400 cats and dogs spayed/neutered (over 80,000 since 2002!)
> 3,394 food bank visits from 705 clients
> 51,904 lbs of pet food and cat litter distributed
> 14 dog houses provided to dogs without adequate outdoor shelter
We also help animals and pet owners in many other ways. It's because of your support that we're able to continue.
