PETCO Grant of $10,000 will extend efforts to save more animal lives in Lawrence County, Ky.
Louisa, Ky. (March 6, 2019) – Lawrence County Humane Society of Louisa, Kentucky announced it has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its program to reduce the number of homeless kitten litters born each year throughout Lawrence County.
The Petco Foundation investment will help provide spay and neuter surgeries for family pets of low-income families in the community. In addition, surgeries are being provided to numerous free roaming community cats through Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) services.
“This Petco Foundation grant will greatly help us continue our lifesaving work,” said Beverly Pack, cat adoption coordinator at Lawrence County Humane Society. “By helping family pets, as well as free roaming cats throughout our community, there is no doubt this effort will significantly reduce the number of homeless kittens.”

About Lawrence County (KY) Humane Society
The Lawrence County Humane Society was incorporated in 1990 by a small group of people who were concerned about the ever-growing stray animal population in their community. We work closely with the animal control officers from both Lawrence and Magoffin counties to pick up stray animals, enforce county ordinances, and address cruelty to animal complaints. We strive to educate all age groups to promote humane attitudes and good treatment for all animals. And we work to reduce the over breeding of dogs and cats through public education programs and spay/neuter assistance programs.
