Thanksgiving Special: Adoption fees waived at Kentucky Humane Society, LMAS

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- During the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) and Louisville Metro Animal Services (LMAS) are joining national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society – along with animal shelters across the country – to offer free pet adoptions on all adoptable dogs and cats.

It's called the Pawlidayz initiative. The online retailer has pledged to donate $1.25 million toward this nationwide adoption special. Adopters at
LMAS and KHS will pay no adoption fees but are responsible for pet licensing fees. While LMAS and KHS are waiving adoption fees, they are not waiving the adoption process.

The special runs Black Friday through Cyber Monday, Nov. 25-28, at the LMAS Animal House Adoption Center, 3516 Newburg Rd., and 10 Kentucky Humane Society adoption centers.

LMAS Animal House adoption hours are Friday 2-4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 12-6 p.m., and Monday noon-4 p.m. KHS Main Campus (241 Steedly Drive) and East Campus (1000 Lyndon Lane) hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Monday, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. KHS adoption centers at Feeders Supply are open during regular store hours. Visit the KHS and LMAS websites for hours and more information, or

More than 115 shelters, rescues and humane organizations across the United States, including LMAS and KHS, will participate in the initiative, allowing customers nationwide the opportunity to save a furry friend this holiday season. KHS and LMAS are active partners in Best Friends No More Homeless Pets® Network, which offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.

All pets adopted from KHS and LMAS have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and given worm, flea and tick preventatives – services which are valued at more than $250. Visit or to see all adoptable pets.
