How this Shelter Helps Pets, People and the Community

  • Operates Spay'sTheWay, a free and low-cost spay/neuter program
  • Manages multiple programs including food assistance, rabies vaccination clinics, Project Purrfect, Canine Companions and First Contact
  • Coordinates in-house program that gives specialized training to pit bull breeds
  • Secured an emergency animal housing trailer, supply trailer and supplies to aid in disaster relief through a partnership with local Emergency Management

By the Numbers

In the past year:

  • Adopted over 4,700 healthy, altered, microchipped pets
  • Partnered with smaller shelters to rescue over 1,300 animals from high-risk or crisis situations
  • Performed 7,200 spay/neuter surgeries
  • Reunited nearly 1,000 lost animals with their owners

How $25,000 from HomeAgain Helps Would Aid this Shelter

The area of Lexington Humane that could best use the Grand Prize money is adoptions. By restructuring it and enhancing the adoption experience, an increased number of adoptions could take place. With the additional funds, Lexington Humane could also help to import more high-risk animals from smaller shelters, thus increasing the number of lives saved and the number of altered, microchipped animals entering the community. And a portion of the award would be used to step up promotional activities to continue spreading the adoption message.
