Thank you for choosing adoption as the best option for selecting your pet. The staff of LHS is dedicated to helping you through this process, but you will need to do a bit of homework yourself...
Adopting a pet is a life-long commitment and we want to make sure you are selecting the right pet for your family, your lifestyle, and your budget. Our assortment of animals changes on a daily basis so having an idea of the age, size, breed, and characteristics you are looking for can be really helpful in your search. Please visit our Finders Keepers section on this website for useful information, commonly asked questions, and helpful resources.
Once you have a basic idea of the type of animal you are interested in, please complete our adoption questionnaire and bring it with you when you visit. Our Adoption Specialists will assist you from there.
Be sure to check out some of the adoption success stories on our Facebook Fan Page!

A best friend for life!
We require all dogs and cats in Fayette County to be licensed at adoption. Adoption fee does not include the $8 Fayette County animal license. (We accept Cash, VISA or MasterCard).
PLEASE NOTE: When an animal is adopted it needs to leave in a carrier or on a collar and leash.
All Dogs and Puppies: $79 - $199
All Cats and Kittens: $5 - $89
Bunnies and other pets: $5 and up!
*Mandatory $8 city license costs not included in adoption fees.
Pets with higher adoption fees help to provide financial assistance for those animals who need a little more time to find their forever homes. The cost of care per animal is $250, the value of the services each animal is provided pre-adoption is approximately $415!
Adopting a pet is a serious commitment of love and responsibility; therefore, the adoption process is a serious commitment of time. Please be prepared!
We require all adopters to spend quality time with the animals they are interested in before completing the process.
The adoption process itself takes about 45 minutes. Weekends are very busy, please allow extra time.
Adoption process must start one hour before closing.
Some adoptions may not be completed in the same day.
All animals must leave on a leash and collar or in an approved carrier.
Sorry, we can’t hold animals unless a meet-and-greet has been completed.
If you are traveling in from out-of-town, please speak to our Adoption Manager for special consideration.
