WHAS11, KHS raise more than $20,000 for Kentuckiana animals

Every penny of those donations will go toward making sure animals get the best care until they find their forever homes.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The animals at the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) have thousands of reasons to wag their tails - and it's all thanks to you!

WHAS11 partnered with the adoption organization on Wednesday for a special Fall Giveathon event. KHS hoped to reach a goal of $20,000 by midnight and....they did it!

According to KHS officials, they received a total of $20,184 in donations by the end of the night. They said that's enough money to save and provide important care for an additional 81 animals. 

Every penny of those donations will go toward making sure the animals brought to the Kentucky Humane Society get the best care until they find their forever homes.

It will also help fund other KHS initiatives including their foster program, equine outreach and veterinary clinic.
