The Franklin County Humane Society is renovating its facility and has received a $75,000 grant to fund major capital projects including facility renovation for the organization.

The Petco Foundation awarded the Frankfort Animal Shelter its 5th largest grant award and is among the largest received by the Franklin County Humane Society since it began in 1948.

This grant is one of only six awarded from amongst over 300 applicants and was based on the merits of exemplifying the Petco Foundation’s mission to raise quality of life for pets and the people who love and need them.

The shelter said they have been hit by flooding from the Kentucky River and this money will help them create new kennel space and make improvements to all areas of the shelter.
