Create a “Pet Independence Day” with $17.76 Dog Adoptions and $0 Cat Adoptions
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is FULL and invites the public to create a “pet independence day” for grateful shelter pets by adopting.
During the “Pet Independence Adoption Celebration” June 30-July 4, dogs 1 year and older can be adopted for $17.76, and cats 1 year and older can be adopted for $0. Jefferson County adopters also pay for pet licensing fees ($10.50) and donations are gratefully accepted.
According to KHS, July is typically the busiest month of the year for animal intakes, so they are hoping this adoption special will make room for incoming pets.
“Right now, not only is our shelter full, but shelters across Kentucky are at capacity. Every adoption we do this weekend will help make room for pets who will need our help,” said KHS Shelter Operations Director Sara Rehfeld.
The adoption special takes place at the KHS East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and the KHS Main Campus at 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville. Adoptions are processed between 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. weekends. Both locations are also open on July 4th, processing adoptions from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on the holiday.
All pets adopted from KHS have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and given flea and tick preventatives – services which are valued at more than $300. Adoption is pending approval of an application process that usually takes an hour or less.
