Ky. Humane Society, LMAS adopt out record number of pets over Thanksgiving holiday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials with the Kentucky Humane Society and Louisville Metro Animal Services say a record number of animals were adopted during the Thanksgiving holiday. 

According to a news release, homes were found for 325 animals during the Zappos.com #Pawlidayz 4-day adoption special. 

Both agencies waived adoption fees on all animals from Black Friday through Cyber Monday (Nov. 25-28).  Zappos.com donated $1.25 million to pay for over 10,000 adoption fees at over 125 shelters across the nation.

According to the news release, nearly every dog at LMAS’ Animal House and Kentucky Humane Society adoption centers had been adopted by Monday evening. 

The LMAS and KHS staffs are celebrating all the empty cages, but we know that these kennels will soon be full again. We want to remind people that just because the kennels are empty for a day, that doesn’t mean that pet overpopulation issues are solved: we need adopters every week, and people to spay and neuter their animals so that fewer unwanted pets need to come to our shelters in the first place.
