“We are at a critical point and really need the public’s help to save lives,” Margaret Brosko, spokesperson for LMAS, said. “Our two agencies have been overwhelmed with cats, and we are asking adopters to come forward. In addition, Louisville Metro Animal Services is asking the public not to turn in cats until we have more space.”
Susan Oppel, who is the operations director at the Kentucky Humane Society, sai both agencies have been overwhelmed with owner-surrendered cats.
“To save more lives, we need people to come out and adopt cats this weekend,” says Oppel. “In addition, we ask cat owners to call the Kentucky Humane Society’s free Pet Help Line, 509-4PET, before they turn their pets in to area shelters. Our Pet Help Line can help owners either keep their pets or find alternatives to turning their pets in” Oppel said.
Adoption locations are located at LMAS Animal House on Newburg Road, KHS Main Campus on Steedly Drive, KHS East Campus behind Westport Village, and seven Feeders Supply KHS adoption sites : Fern Creek, Hikes Point, Preston Highway, Springhurst, St. Matthews, Dixie Highway and Clarksville, Ind.
