Monday’s event helps raise awareness of the shelter’s Second Chance program
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The public was invited to meet two beloved shelter dogs on Monday.
Huck, a rescue dog at the Lexington Humane Society, was finally able to meet his furry hero companion. Huck was found on Christmas Eve with a broken leg and two broken jaws. He has since recovered and on Monday he had the chance to meet Ethan, the Kentucky Humane Society’s rescue dog.
Ethan has a similar story when he was dropped off in the Kentucky Humane Society parking lot, emaciated and left for dead. Ethan has since been adopted and now serves as an animal rights advocate.
Organizers say the two became fast friends.
“It fills you with hope because we see so many sad stories, so many animals arriving barely able to survive,” said Meghan Hawkins, director of community engagement for the Lexington Humane Society. “And then you know you have the community supporting you, they support you, they have the dogs and the cats. So as long as we have them on our side, we can continue to welcome them.
Monday’s event was also a way to raise awareness of the Second Chances program, which is committed to saving animals in need. You can read more about the LHS Second Chances program HERE.
