Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Making a difference now is a lexington, kentucky, based animal welfare nonprofit organization dedicated to helping and advocating for animals and to supporting animal-serving individuals and organizations

Programs: Provided direct services to animals in need, including 92 cats and dogs in 2017. Direct services included trap-neuter-return for community cats, subsidized spay/neuter for cats and dogs, community cat caretaking and assistance to caretakers, construction of shelters and feeding stations, help with medical bills for individual animals and for the agencies that rescue them, fostering, and adoption support. Provided indirect assistance to many more animals through training and consultation, referrals and support services

presented animal welfare conferences for the last two years for approximately 150 people in each year from throughout kentucky and from several adjoining states. Conferences featured excellent local, regional, and national speakers sharing important information and resources and received rave reviews. Outreach expanded madn's lifesaving impact far beyond our capacity for direct services to individual animals

madn continues to develop collaborative relationships with sister agencies and to participate in coalitions that expand our reach and impact for helping animals. Current priorities include enhancing the ability of shelters and nonprofits in under-resourced counties to help more animals, facilitating each organization's ability to provide services that utilize its strengths and addressing the woeful state of kentucky laws and regulations that have resulted in kentucky being ranked dead last of all 50 states in animal welfare and protection for the last 11 years
