Where We're Going

From the first days of FOHCAS, the mission has been about homeless and unwanted animals. Today, this mission is challenging us to look beyond the walls of the shelter to the larger picture of animal welfare in Hardin and surrounding counties and the Commonwealth of Kentucky. 

In 2022, the FOHCAS board dedicated itself to expanding our advocacy efforts for homeless dogs and cats. 

In the next 3 years, our goals are to:

  • Increase education and awareness of local and state officials.
  • Support and assist passage of animal welfare-related legislation.
  • Provide education for responsible pet ownership.

We also understand that to have a greater impact, we must establish and strengthen relationships with local and statewide community organizations, businesses, individuals and legislators. We are committed to using our voice to help those who continue to have no voice until there are none.
