Kentucky Humane Society Starts Renovations This Month

The Kentucky Humane Society says it will soon begin upgrading the heating, cooling and ventilation system at its south Louisville shelter to prevent diseases from spreading among animals. The agency is also renovating the façade of its existing building, and adding another building on the back of the property expedite the processing of animals.

KHS President Lori Kane Redmon says the ventilation system upgrade is by far the most important part of the project.

“Essentially, all the animals in the building breathe the same air," says Redmon, "so with this we’ll have a separate zone for animals coming in of unknown health, a separate zone for those that are up for adoption and healthy, and another separate one for those that are in treatment because they have an illness we are treating before they can go up for adoption.”Redmon says the façade renovation will take place this month. The rest of the project is scheduled to start in August or September.A capital campaign to raise $1.6-million for the project is still $200,000 short.
