LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An overcrowded animal shelter means pet adoption fees are being waived.

Louisville Metro Animal Service said its shelter is at capacity, so fees are being waived in July for all shelter pets.

LMAS says it took in more than 7,500 homeless pets last year. And for the first time, no animals were euthanized to make room for incoming stray animals.

Potential adopters will still have to complete an application and be approved to take home a pet. Each adoption also includes a one-year renewable pet license, which is required by law for Jefferson County pet owners.

The Animal House Adoption Center at 3516 Newburg Road is open from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday and until 7 p.m. Fridays until 7 p.m. The shelter at 3705 Manslick Road is open from noon to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 11 am..m to 2 p.m. Saturday.
