Respected national organizations like the Humane Society of the United States, Best Friends Animal Society, and The Joanie Bernard Foundation have recognized the impact of the DBCHS Community Cat Program by providing financial support and mentoring and inviting the humane society to share its successful program at national and regional conferences.

Most recently, DBCHS submitted a grant application to Community Cats Podcast and was selected to receive up to $2,000 in matching dollars. The grant is only available if DBCHS raises $2,000. A total of $4,000 covers 60 surgeries, preventing overpopulation, reducing euthanasia significantly, and keeping free-roaming cats – and their people – healthy and happy.

The DBCHS encourages community members to Spay it Forward to save and improve community cats’ lives. Make a difference today and visit or mail a check to DBCHS, PO Box 487, Danville, KY 40423.

The Danville-Boyle County Humane Society is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) established in 1972 that promotes the humane treatment of animals through compassionate care, engagement, and support.
