All adoption appointments filled for KHS Empty the Shelters event

Adoption fees for dogs and cats one year and older will be reduced May 5-8. The shelter said all of the available appointments have already been filled.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Update: The Kentucky Humane Society said all appointments for the week of May 5-8 have been filled. Adoptions are only allowed by appointment only. If you didn't get an appointment, the shelter encourages you to still consider coming after this week, even though the reduced-price adoptions will no longer be available.

For one week, adoption fees for dogs and cats one year and older at the Kentucky Humane Society will be reduced as part of Bissell Pet Foundation's national Empty the Shelters event. 

During the event, which runs May 5-8, adoption fees will be reduced to $25 for dogs and $10 for cats at the KHS East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and KHS main shelter at 241 Steedly Drive. Adopters will also be responsible for applicable pet licensing fees.

According to KHS, all pets are spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Those wishing to adopt must schedule an appointment online in advance. KHS will not accept walk-ins.
