Two dogs, Ethan and Travolta, were rescued from death almost exactly one year apart. The donation came from the sale of dog treats created in Ethan’s honor.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Ethan the dog, whose story of triumph captured the hearts of the Louisville community last year, just celebrated another milestone. On Wednesday, Ethan was joined by Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) staff for a celebration of his one-year rescue anniversary, as well as a major donation to KHS.
Feeders Pet Supply presented a check for $15,000 to Ethan and Travolta, another dog cared for by the shelter. The money will help the Kentucky Humane Society give dogs and cats the care they need through the KHS Helpline.
In January 2021, Ethan was abandoned and barely alive in the Kentucky Humane Society parking lot. Thanks to the dedicated work of the KHS team, Ethan regained his health and made a full recovery. He has since been adopted and has become an animal welfare advocate in Louisville and beyond.
Travolta shares a similar story. On January 2, 2022, he was brought to the shelter after an Uber driver saw him lying on the side of the road. He had multiple serious infections and suffered from starvation. While still recovering, Travolta has made tremendous progress since joining KHS.
“We want to make sure no animal goes through what these two dogs went through,” said Alisa Gray, KHS vice president of outreach. “We want to make sure that if someone needs help at home, we are there.”
The $15,000 donation was made possible with proceeds from Incredipet Ethan’s Choice biscuits, sold at Feeders Pet Supply stores.
