Ethan the dog received enormous amounts of support in the community and beyond after being found left for dead January in the Kentucky Humane Society parking lot.
After rehabilitation by KHS staff and being adopted, Ethan inspired a bill to make animal torture a felony in Kentucky, and was given recognition as “Compassion Ambassador” by the Kentucky Derby Festival in May.
“Thank you so much for your overwhelming support of Ethan, our family and KHS,” Callaway said in the post. “We appreciate your well wishes so much.”
