$0 Adoption Fees

May 25, 2023 - May 29, 2023


As we continue to experience an increase in the number of animals in our care, the space available for large adult dogs has nearly run out at both adoption locations. We have been trying our best to stay on top of the situation, but our cages just keep filling, and filling, and filling. In efforts to make space:

***Adoption fees are going to be waived May 25th - May 29th on all adult dogs over 1 year in age and over 40 lbs.***

If you have been considering adding a pet to your family, NOW IS THE TIME. All LHS adoptions include spay/neuter, microchip with registration, up-to-date vaccinations, free vet well exam, and more. View hours/location information.

The cost of care per LHS animal is around $250, and the value of the services each animal is provided pre-adoption is approximately $415. If you're able to DONATE, please do so to help us recover some of the financial loss from offering waived adoption fees. We have already been offering reduced fees of only $25 to encourage the adoption of adult dogs, but sadly, we are still very full.

Finding loving homes has always been our top priority, and that certainly doesn't change now. The adoption process is the same regardless of the fee for an animal. We require all potential adopters to fill out a questionnaire, spend quality time with the animal they are interested in, and they must be approved by a qualified adoptions specialist before completing the process.

You can learn more about the canine crisis, and how you can help, here.

Please note: All adoptions must begin an hour prior to close. Mandatory $8 Fayette County city license fee not included. All dogs must leave with an approved leash/collar. Sorry, no holds can be placed during this event. Please see an adoptions specialist for complete information.
