May this newsletter bring you many blessings for 2021. So many challenges we have all faced in 2020 and a lot has happened to many of us. The humane society has experienced many challenges and yet we keep overcoming them. That is what makes me so proud of such a dynamic staff, volunteers, our continued support from our donors, and our board of directors. It takes a team to continue our work in finding lifelong and loving homes. I have been very blessed to have been a part of the ever-changing world of animal welfare. Memories, moments the people, and of course every animal that has passed through our loving hands. It is with a grateful heart that my time here is coming to a close, I am retiring after 10 wonderful years! I am looking forward to starting a new journey with my family and with many travels. I have been abundantly blessed to serve as the Executive Director of McCracken County Humane Society. May the new leadership be as blessed as I have been.
-Terry, Executive Director

TNR Cat Program
MCHS is pleased to announce that we have re-launched a Trap Neuter Release/Replace (TNR) program for feral cat colonies! We are excited to offer this program at an extremely discounted and affordable price for the McCracken County community! TNR will reduce the major overpopulation of unwanted cats and kittens in our community. The program is for feral cat colonies of 2 or more and participants must register with MCHS prior to bringing cats in. Surgeries are performed each Wednesday morning here at MCHS. Please call to find out more or to have your colony registered!
