Working together is essential to make real, lasting change in the public animal services world. One way to accomplish this is by developing relationships with other government and non-profit organizations with a common mission. That doesn’t necessarily mean other animal agencies. One such resource is the Kentucky Coalition of Area Development Districts (KCADD). Their strategic mission is simple: They strive to foster regional strategies, solutions and partnerships that improve the overall quality of life for the citizens of Kentucky.
The KCADD is a non-profit organization separated into 15 Area Development Districts (ADD) varying in size from 5 to 15 counties. Your ADD can apply for grants on behalf of the animal organizations within your district. It’s important to form a collaboration between the sheltering organizations within your district to develop a plan. You can find contact information for your ADD HERE.
