Kentucky veterans going to the dogs (and cats) with program to boost second chance pet adoption

Pets for Patriots, Inc., a not-for-profit that connects shelter pets with U.S. veterans, wounded warriors and service members, is joining forces with the Kentucky Humane Society to increase the adoption of adult and other at-risk shelter animals. Jefferson Animal Hospital East will offer discounted veterinary care to dogs and cats adopted through the Pets for Patriots program.

“Kentucky Humane Society is proud to join the Pets for Patriots program,” says Lori Kane Redmon, KHS President and CEO. “We are honored to help veterans in our community find a lifelong friend.”

Notes Redmon, KHS provides shelter, foster care and adoptions to over 6,000 dogs and cats each year. “We strive every day to find loving homes for the deserving animals in our care, and the focus of this program will give many of them a second chance at a great life. This partnership is an excellent way to bring awareness to our mission and say “thank you” to those who served our country. Our men and women returning from service need the unconditional friendship and love these animals will provide.”
