Bissell Pet Foundation paying adoption fees for pets affected by hurricanes
The foundation is paying adoption fees for dogs and cats coming in from areas affected by the recent hurricanes.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Bissell Pet Foundation is paying fees for anyone adopting a dog or cat coming into the Kentucky Humane Society from hurricane impacted areas.
The Kentucky Humane Society is at 100% capacity with 500 animals in its care, and is expected to get more animals in this week.
This deal is designed to relieve overcrowding. The Kentucky Humane Society has been accepting animals from shelters in Florida and Texas or from owners who voluntarily gave pets up after the storms.
The Bissell Pet Foundation is paying fees through Saturday, Sept. 23. Adopters still have to pay the $10.50 pet licensing fee.
The Kentucky Humane Society is also looking for temporary foster homes, especially for medium and large sized dogs. KHS provides food and supplies for foster homes. Foster commitments are usually one to two weeks.
