Animal Causes

The Kip Kephart Foundation has provided financial assistance to local well organized animal assistance entities. View some of the animal cause organizations we help here in Virginia:

The Humane Society of Caroline County

The Humane Society of Caroline County is a 501(c)3 non-profit voluntary organization dedicated to the humane treatment and improving the welfare of animals. They exist solely by the donations of time, money and adoption fees and do not receive federal, state or local tax dollars.

Their Mission - through our Foster/Adoption Program is to rescue, assist with and provide for the health and welfare of animals that have been abused, neglected, abandoned, surrendered, lost or injured.

The New Kent Humane Society

The New Kent Humane Society, Inc. is a non-profit organization in Virginia which incorporated in January 2009 to address the growing number of homeless animals in our county needing assistance.  We are run entirely by
volunteers and have no paid staff.  Our organization relies entirely upon donations, adoption fees, and fund-raising efforts for support.

The New Kent Humane Society, Inc. assists in the placement of animals from the county pound and does not accept owner surrendered animals, except in extreme and extenuating circumstances.  Our greatest wish is to reduce the number of animals being euthanized locally.  All of our animals are kept in temporary foster homes until permanent, loving homes can be found for them.

New Hope Rescue

New Hope Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, set up to help equines and other animals in need in our area through rescue, adoption, education, and veterinary/spay/neuter assistance. The organization does not have a shelter, but rather the animals are homed with volunteers while they are being rehabilitated. Some animals are ready for adoption quite quickly; others take many long months to overcome physical and emotional abuses. We don't rush them. Our goal is to offer them new hope for a brighter future.
