Resources to Help Reunite Lost or Found Pets

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) and Louisville Metro Animal Services (LMAS), our city's public shelter, reunite belovedLost and found cats and dogs pets with their owners every week. Per city ordinance, both agencies keep stray pets for five days to allow their owners time to find them. After that time, the pets can be made available for adoption. If you have lost your pet, please check current stray listings at both KHS and LMAS, plus the Courier-Journal:
