LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---This weekend, the Kentucky Humane Society joined with Metro Animal Services for a special adoption event.

Now through Wednesday, you can adopt dogs and cats for just four dollars.

Officials with the Kentucky Humane Society say Louisville is becoming more adoption friendly.

"As a community, Louisville is becoming much more humane. And people are deciding that adoption is the best option for homeless pets. I'm so grateful to see

what a compassionate community we have in Louisville,” said Andrea Blair with the Kentucky Humane Society.

Andrea Blair says this is the biggest adoption event of the year because this is when they have the most pets.

The event is in honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday.

People were also lined up to see a special guest that was at the adoption event.

Lil' Bub the cat was there to celebrate her third birthday.

The cat is a star on social media.

She was found in a tool shed and adopted by a man.

Her owner wanted to raise $50,000 dollars for the month of June.

He says they succeeded that goal by more than four thousand dollars this weekend.
