Serving rural Anderson County in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky, Anderson Humane Society (AHS) is a largely volunteer shelter, founded as a grassroots organization in 1975 with a focus on helping stray animals. As membership grew, AHS expanded its role to include addressing animal welfare issues, facilitating adoptions and rescues, and offering education programs and low-cost vaccine and spay/neuter programs. AHS works to make a better world for all animals by providing shelter, educating the community about humane care and treatment, advocating for animal welfare, and linking pets and people to enrich the lives of both.
AHS is honored to receive a grant from the Grey Muzzle Organization, which will help it provide medical and dental care for senior dogs at the shelter and in foster care and will also expand the shelter’s ability to offer financial support for medical and emergency care to keep senior dogs in their owners’ homes, where they are most comfortable. This grant will help dogs like Henry, a senior boxer mix who came to AHS as a woefully neglected stray dog. After a medical exam, dental care to remove numerous painful, rotted teeth, bloodwork, and a lot of TLC, Henry found a fabulous new home with his foster mom, Paula.
