The Kohn Foundation is guided by compassion and love for our fellow humans and animals. They do a great service by supporting education in the form of scholarships and supporting the spay and neuter clinics and puppy lifts that cuts down on euthanasias and provides opportunities for animals and people to experience love.

I Am French and Ellen Kohn is a personnal friend. During a stay by her, she worked on a distance means on my 2 dogs and gave me some medicine (drops) to put in their foods. The dogs feel better immediatly after and, many months latter, it is still true.

I also saw Ellen working on a horse, and I saw the horse getting cooler and beginning sleeping !

I am proud to be associated with The Kohn Foundation. The work being done to support the Humane Society of Grand Bahama is vital. The Humane Society does not receive any federal support and the spay and neuter clinics that they run are important to keep the animal over population in check.

The Kohn Foundation's support for the islands' stray street dogs -- known affectionately as "potcakes" -- is deserving of all our appreciation. With funding supplied in part through The Kohn Foundation, the Humane Society of Grand Bahama sponsors free spay and neuter clinics in order to educate local residents and curb the potcake population. As the owner/guardian of two rescued potcakes -- who would not be here but for these efforts -- I strongly urge others to work with and support The Kohn Foundation.

I am extremely proud to be associated with The Kohn Foundation. The work being done in the Bahamas creates a bridge of friendship and compassion between two neighbors.

One remarkable accomplishment by the foundation is the number of "potcake puppy lifts" that have been conducted. These rescue operations bring dogs that would surely be euthanized in the Bahamas to the United States where they are adopted by American families. These lifts are successful because they employ a broad partnership of compassionate families, dedicated veterinarians and generous corporations.

Additionally, The Kohn Foundation gives a hand up to worthy Bahamian students who are committed to improving their lives through continuing education. The scholarship program has received the support of international donors who recognize the impact that education makes in the lives of the student and their extended family.
