Kentucky Humane Society
Award Date: December 21, 2018
To create real and systemic change for companion animals across Kentucky, the Kentucky Humane Society has developed a 3-year pilot program called “LOVE 120.” This program will provide resources and support to struggling but aspiring rural communities to help them create their own long-term, sustainable solutions to improve animal welfare and to inspire other communities to do the same.
LOVE 120 is a 10-year strategy to positively impact all 120 Kentucky counties. To ensure the greatest reach, the pilot program of this state-wide initiative is divided into three regions: Eastern Kentucky (Letcher County), Western Kentucky (Graves County) and Central Kentucky (Breckinridge County). The poverty rate in these rural counties is high – particularly in Letcher County at 31.6% –and accessible veterinary care and adequate sheltering resources is lacking.
