Adoption Fees Reduced to $25 for Dogs and $10 for Cats One Year and Older

The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is joining Bissell Pet Foundation’s national Empty the Shelters event May 5-8, 2021. Thanks to support from Bissell Pet Foundation, adoption fees will be lowered to just $25 for dogs and $10 for cats age one year and older at the KHS East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and the KHS main shelter at 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.

This is the first large-scale adoption special KHS has hosted since the pandemic began. KHS is not allowing walk-ins, and adoption appointments must be scheduled in advance. To view adoptable cats and dogs and schedule an appointment, visit or Pets cannot be put on hold, and adoption appointments are one hour.

In addition to the adoption fee, adopters are responsible for paying applicable pet licensing fees, and donations are gratefully accepted. All dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Pets younger than one year are excluded from the adoption special, as well as cats at Purrfect Day Café.
