Each year almost 20,000 homeless pets are taken in by Louisville Metro Animal Services (LMAS) and the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS).
To make dreams come true for these pets, LMAS and KHS are inviting the public to take a pet “Home for the Holidays.” December 5-9 only, adopters can pick their pet and pick their adoption price at either agency. The adoption special applies to dogs one year and older and cats four months and older. Adopters pay for applicable microchipping and licensing fees.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Louisville Metro Animal Services for our annual Home for the Holidays adoption special,” said Lori Redmon, KHS president and CEO. “During our joint Halloween adoption special this fall, almost 200 pets were adopted. We hope even more pets go home for the holidays with this joint effort."
“Louisville Metro Animal Services and the Kentucky Humane Society have hundreds of wonderful adoptable pets to choose from,” says Justin Scally, LMAS director. “Between our agencies, we have the widest selection of adoptable pets in our region.”
All pets adopted from KHS and LMAS have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on their vaccinations and given worm and flea preventatives – services which are valued at nearly $250.
For more information, contact KHS at (502) 366-3355 or kyhumane.org, or LMAS at (502) 473-7387 or www.louisvilleky.gov/AnimalServices. The adoption special takes place at nine permanent KHS adoption locations, including seven Feeders Supply stores, as well as the LMAS Animal House Adoption Center, Manslick Road location and at LMAS adoption sites at participating PetSmart stores. Adopters must pay for any applicable licensing fees, microchipping and microchip registration. Adoption is pending approval of an application process that usually takes an hour or less. The adoption special runs Dec. 5-9 only.
