$4 adoption fees to celebrate Fourth of July | Families
From Kentucky Humane Society
LOUISVILLE, KY - Louisville Metro Animal Services (LMAS) and the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) invite the public to help homeless pets enjoy “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” by adopting before the July 4th holiday weekend.
The two agencies are joining together to offer a Pet Independence Adoption Celebration: adoption fees for dogs and cats four months and older are just $4 June 29-July 3. In addition to the $4 adoption fee, adopters pay for applicable Jefferson County pet licensing and microchip registration fees.
“June and July are among the highest intake months for shelters,” says Margaret Brosko, senior manager for
Louisville Metro Animal Services. “More pets are given up in the summer than any other time of the year, and we want to make sure we do everything we can to find them loving, forever homes.”
“Combined, Louisville Metro Animal Services and the Kentucky Humane Society have taken in more than 1,500 pets in the last month,” says Brosko.
“To save more lives and to give homeless pets a second chance, we need more people to choose the adoption option,” says Susan Oppel, KHS operations director. “There are so many wonderful pets in our community who end up homeless through no fault of their own. Whatever personality, size or breed adopters want, between our two agencies, we probably have the perfect pet.”
All pets adopted from KHS and LMAS have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and given worm, flea and tick preventatives – services which are valued at nearly $250. Visit kyhumane.org or www.louisvilleky.gov/AnimalServices to see all adoptable pets.
