Charlotte Needs You On Wednesday afternoon, a dog arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society in critical condition. This poor pup, who we’ve been calling Charlotte, appears to have had her back right leg stuck in something, causing her leg to lose blood flow and turn gangrenous. Charlotte’s leg tissue was rotting, infected and infested with maggots. Without immediate action, her injuries could have been fatal. Donate We performed emergency amputation surgery to save Charlotte from sepsis and in turn, save her life. Thankfully she is recovering well and seems to be on the mend ..read more

Oliver Update – 6/21/24 We’re happy to share that Oliver survived another night. This one-year-old dog came to KHS just two days ago after being found in a rural county as a stray. Oliver has been starving for so long that his hip bones, spine and ribs are visible to the naked eye. He weighs only 30 pounds when he should be at least 60, leaving him lethargic and weak. Oliver is receiving round-the-clock care including I.V. fluids, medication and nutrition. He’s been able to eat in small amounts, but drinking an alarming amount of water – a symptom of diabetes. Bl ..read more

When Celia arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society, we noticed she wasn’t putting any weight on her front right leg. Worried, our veterinary team immediately took her in for x-rays. What we saw broke our hearts. We discovered that not only was Celia’s leg severely broken but it was also littered with shrapnel. This leads us to believe that this sweet girl was the victim of a gunshot, which ultimately caused her leg to break. The bullets did irreparable damage to Celia’s leg, and our vet team decided that amputation was the only way to guarantee a full recovery. We performed the ..read more

When Clarabelle and her ten puppies arrived at our East Campus unexpectedly, we were heartbroken to discover how she was found. This sweet mama was rescued from the side of the highway by a trio of teenage boys who spotted her cowering next to a plastic tote containing her ten puppies.  Our team knew this young family needed help immediately, and even though we were at full capacity from another emergency intake, we welcomed them in. We set Clarabelle up in a spacious room so she could comfortably care for her babies while our staff cared for her. Clarabelle was severely underweight, an ..read more
