Humane Society receives innovation grant


By Brad Adams - Fayette Humane Society Humane Officer



The Fayette Humane Society is a proud recipient of a Maddie’s Fund innovation grant to spay and neuter the parents of unplanned litters of puppies.

The mission of Maddie’s Fund is to revolutionize the status and well-being of companion animals. By offering this service, along with necessary vaccinations, the Fayette Humane Society will be able to significantly decrease the number of unplanned litters of puppies as well as working to keep the puppy parents healthy.

These innovation grants were offered to shelters who showed that they have adopted progressive programs in the area of animal welfare, reported data on the outcomes of their adoption program, and worked to keep up on the latest information on best practices in animal sheltering.

The Fayette Humane Society has significantly altered and expanded its programs in the past few years in order to better serve the animals and people of Fayette County. Operation Cat Snip, the trap, neuter, return program, has spayed, neutered, and rabies vaccinated over 700 Fayette County cats in the past three years.

This program will significantly decrease the number of stray and feral cats. Over 800 Fayette County cats and dogs found forever homes in 2015, and the numbers will increase in 2016. Ninety-five percent of animals entering the shelter were released to loving homes.

The Fayette Humane Society deeply appreciates Maddie’s Fund and their work to help achieve a no-kill nation.

The Fayette Humane Society is a non-profit (501(c)(3), volunteer organization. We receive less than 2 percent of our support from governmental organizations and therefore must rely on donations, grants and fundraising to carry out our mission. The Humane Society is the only organization in Fayette County able to respond to calls about abused and neglected and domestic animals, 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
