Humane Society hopes raffle makes small dent in $300,000 lost revenue


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ/Press Release) – The Lexington Humane Society needs the community’s help to offset more than $300,000 lost in 2020 event revenue due to COVID-19.

“With a decline in donations and suspension of in-person events, we are estimating a loss of about $300,000 this year. Summer months are particularly difficult for us as it is kitten season and the numbers of animals in our care is higher than other times of the year,” says Ashley Hammond, LHS Director of Fundraising. “Fundraisers like our Lucky Dog Raffle, sponsored by MetroNet, help bring in funds to assist us in caring for homeless but hopeful animals in and around our community.”
