LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11)—Two local organizations are teaming up and encouraging people to empty the cages at humane societies across the area this month.
The Kentucky Humane Society and Louisville Metro Animal Services are offering holiday deals in order to make December the busiest adoption month in the city’s history.
Margaret Brosko, LMAS Senior Manager, said the effort will require everyone to work together.
“Our joint goal is an ambitious one of finding loving, forever homes for 800 grateful pets,” she said.
The two agencies are requesting that people adopt new pets into their home this holiday season, instead of purchasing from other outlets.
“With so many wonderful homeless animals in our community, we are asking people to make adoption their first option,” said Susan Oppel, KHS Shelter Director.
The agencies will be offering $40 adoptions December 5-8 for all dogs and cats older than one year.
Brosko said LMAS and KHS have the widest selection of cats and dogs to choose from in the region.
“Whatever personality, size, color or age of pet you are looking for, between our agencies we probably have the perfect pet for you,” Brosko said.
LMAS and KHS will be updating their websites and Facebook pages with photos of adoptable pets and the total number of adoptions through the month of December.
