Louisville’s two largest animal sheltering agencies, the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) and Louisville Metro Animal Services (LMAS), are full on cats and are asking the public to help alleviate overcrowding by adopting cats. Both agencies will be waiving adoption and micro-chip fees Friday-Sunday, Nov. 15-17, on all cats age four months and older.
"We are at a critical point and really need the public’s help to save lives," says Margaret Brosko, spokesperson for Louisville Metro Animal Services.
"Our two agencies have been overwhelmed with cats, and we are asking adopters to come forward. In addition, Louisville Metro Animal Services is asking the public not to turn in cats until we have more space."
Susan Oppel, operations director at the Kentucky Humane Society, says that both agencies have been overwhelmed with owner-surrendered cats.
