Regional Cat Spay/Neuter Program Enters Fourth Year with Joanie Bernard Foundation Grant

The NKADD and Team Shelter USA are excited to announce that the Joanie Bernard Foundation has awarded $250,000 to support cat spay/neuter throughout the district’s eight-county region. This is the fourth year the Foundation has supported the Northern Kentucky region, and 2018 marked the first year in history that no shelter dogs and cats were euthanized simply because there was no space.

This milestone lifesaving achievement meant more than 90% of the shelter pets were saved. The NKADD salutes all of the private veterinarians, UCAN, OAR, and shelters, and thanks everyone for their participation.
