Louisville Animal Welfare Agencies Join ASPCA Partnership

ASPCA President & CEO Ed Sayres discusses the new Louisville partnership with WDRB Fox 41 this morning.

We have some exciting news for Kentucky residents! A big congratulations goes out to three Louisville animal welfare organizations—Louisville Metro Animal Services, the Kentucky Humane Society and Alley Cat Advocates—for joining our ASPCA Partnership program. These organizations will gain access to various ASPCA resources, expertise and guidance, including strategic planning support, statistical analysis, training and participation in ground-breaking research projects.

ASPCA President Ed Sayres is in Louisville today to kick off this exciting new collaborative effort. “We look forward to the future success of this collaboration in Louisville, as these agencies already have displayed tremendous growth potential by working well together on joint adoption events and spay/neuter clinics,” he says. “By continuing to build on those accomplishments, we know our partners will be able to affect positive changes for animals most at risk in the Louisville community.”

Last year, nearly 20,000 homeless pets entered these three Louisville agencies. Through this partnership, we hope to assist with shelter overcrowding, increased pet adoptions and targeted spay/neuter programs.

“Working together, we will improve the lives of cats and dogs in our community,” says Lori Redmon, president and CEO of the Kentucky Humane Society, “ensuring every pet is offered a second chance at finding happiness.”

Congratulations, Louisville partners, and keep up the great work!
