Help us help them






Your donation helps the shelter with expenses outside of the county budget. With your help, FOHCAS is able to help fund medical procedures and vaccinations as well as the full-time shelter vet. You also help with the Community Cat program, rescue transport and providing low cost spay/neuter for owned pets in Hardin to reduce the number of unwanted animals. Our educational programs are designed to reach the next generation of pet owners and encourage spay/neuter in our community.   


100% of your tax-deductible donation will go toward these projects.  FOHCAS is a 501c3 public charity.  You can donate through the PayPal link to the right or mail a check made out to "Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter" to PO Box 951, Elizabethtown, KY 42702.

The FOHCAS Endowment

Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter has partnered with the Central Kentucky Community Foundation to create an endowment to save for the future and over time provide a revenue stream for the group to continue our mission to support shelter pets and the community. 

Endowments are a tool that keep donor gifts intact, only distributing earnings from interest or investments. Building a long-term endowment can provide a stable financial fu­ture for nonprofit organizations and provide annual income.

The foundation’s work and management of endowments allow nonprofit organizations such as the Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter to focus on their goals and spend less time raising money, the foundation said.

“Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter has been supporting our community's shelter pets and we want to make sure we can continue to do so forever,” said Julia Springsteen, FOHCAS' founding member. “The endowment fund through CKCF allows us to look toward the future and become self-sufficient as well as grow our programs and events for the benefit of our community's pets and the next generation of pet owners."
