Fantastic News for Louisville’s Animals!

Louisville has been selected an ASPCA Partner Community! As a partner community, Alley Cat Advocates, the Kentucky Humane Society, and Louisville Metro Animal Services will work with the ASPCA to increase the number of cats’ and dogs’ lives saved in our community. One of only eight partner communities across the country, by combining the efforts of the ASPCA and these organizations, and by sharing information, by removing duplicate eff orts, by collaborating in all ways imaginable, Louisville will be better able to get animals out of our shelters alive AND we’ll also be better able to keep animals OUT of our shelters!

For up to five years, the ASPCA will provide fi nancial support to Louisville, likely in the range of $50,000 to $250,000 a year, for initiatives collectively determined to be life-saving. The ASPCA Partnership will include annual planning meetings in order to determine and monitor goals, strategies and needs. The agencies will also have access to ASPCA resources, expertise and guidance, as well as strategic planning support, statistical analysis, training, and participation in forward-looking research projects.

“Alley Cat Advocates is thrilled that Louisville has been selected as an ASPCA Partner Community,” said Karen Little, founder of Alley Cat Advocates. “We are certain that this collaboration will help us raise awareness about the need to spay and neuter our community cats, and we’re confi dent our community will be healthier and happier as a result.”

“As the largest pet adoption agency in the state, the Kentucky Humane Society is pleased to join Louisville Metro Animal Services and Alley Cats Advocates in the ASPCA Partnership,” said Lori Redmon, president and CEO of the Kentucky Humane Society. “Working together, we will improve the lives of cats and dogs in our community, ensuring every healthy, adoptable
pet is offered a second chance at finding happiness.”

“Louisville Metro Animal Services is honored that our city has been selected to become an
ASPCA Partner Community,” said Justin L. Scally, director of Metro Animal Services.
“This partnership demonstrates our city’s commitment to working together to ensure a better quality, more humane life for all in the community. With the resources the ASPCA is bringing to our community, we will move closer to our goal of ending the euthanasia of healthy,
adoptable animals.”

We expect the next fi ve years to be tremendously exciting for our city. We’ll keep you updated on our progress!
