Adopters Can Choose Their Adoption Fees for Louisiana Pets
Earlier this month, the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) took in over 60 shelter animals from Louisiana communities ravaged by Hurricane Ida.
Since Thursday, September 16, some of the Louisiana dogs have been up adoption. Many of the cats have been up for adoption since Friday, September 17. To help these deserving pets get great homes faster, KHS has been inviting adopters to choose their adoption fees.
“During our Adopters’ Choice special for hurricane pets, families are invited to choose their newest furry family members and then choose their adoption fees,” said Robin Vincent, KHS Shelter Operations Director.
“We have amazing animals that originated in hurricane-impacted shelters. These loving cats and dogs have already been through so much, and have traveled so far to get here. Now it’s time for them to find their forever homes.”
Adopters must pay applicable pet licensing fees. Dogs and cats who are part of this special will be identified with “Hurricane Ida” after their names on the KHS adoptable dogs and adoptable cats web pages. The public is encouraged to check the KHS website first to see which animals are available and at which adoption centers, www.kyhumane.org. More animals will be added daily.
All animals ready for adoption have been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and are up-to-date on vaccinations. Dog owners looking to adopt a dog are encouraged to bring their resident dog to the adoption center for a supervised “meet and greet” to ensure everyone gets along.
All of the pets that are part of the Adopters’ Choice special were in Louisiana animal shelters prior to Hurricane Ida’s arrival. By taking them in, KHS helped shelters make room for more owner-surrendered animals as well as lost pets so they can be reunited with their families.
