Every year, a staggering 3-4 million shelter animals are put to sleep.
That is why Mark Hurte opened a non-profit, no-kill shelter in Lancaster.
With the struggling economy, the Central Kentucky Regional Humane Society has seen a decrease in monetary donations...
So much of a decrease, they may have to close its doors.
Hurte's main concern is that the animals will be given to other shelters where they may be euthanized.
The volunteers and the community have all pulled together for numerous fundraisers across Central Kentucky such as...
Saturday, July 21st - CKYRHS CARES Cruise In - 6pm-9pm
Saturday, July 21st - KY Proud beverage and dessert booth at Field to Fork Festival - Halcomb's Knob Bed & Breakfast Farm - Paint Lick, KY
Saturday, August 25th - Garrard County Tobacco Festival - Public Square, Lancaster
Friday, September 14th thru Sunday, September 16th - Pet Smart National Pet Adoption Weekend - Brannon Crossing, Nicholasville, KY
