LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky Humane Society is temporarily waiving adoption fees for adult dogs and cats. 

The KHS adoption fee for adult dogs and cats is usually more than $200. All KHS dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.

KHS recently received nearly 300 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens from shelters in eastern Kentucky that were impacted by flash flooding last month. 

"Eastern Kentucky continues to hurt, and the shelters there are desperate,", said Karen Koenig, vice president of animal welfare at KHS. "We can only transport in more animals if we have space at KHS."

Although adoption fees are being waived, Jefferson County residents will need to pay a $10.50 licensing fee. 

The adoption special started Wednesday, Sept. 7, and continues through Wednesday, Sept. 14.
