On #GivingTuesday, we are raising money for animals just like Lucy. Lucy came to us this Fall when a laboratory in Virginia was closed for inhumane and cruel testing on animals. Because of our safety net at KVHS and our promise to provide hope, healing and second chances to all animals in need, she was cared for at KVHS and in a loving foster home while she recovered from her traumatic start to life. We are grateful that today Lucy spends her days being showered with love by her new family, falling asleep in a warm bed with her people, and playing with more dog toys than she could possibly need! The happy endings are what we believe in, and you can join us in making even more possible by making a gift today. ... See MoreSee Less
