Saving Sunny received grant funding to create its Community Dog Resource Center, which provides support to pet owners in the Portland area of Louisville. LMAS received grant monies for Pit Perks to encourage more people to adopt pit bulls, by offering adopters reduced adoption fees, tuff toys, crates and dog training classes. As a proud Louisville business, we encourage you to adopt a pet from your local Louisville shelter, the Animal House.

Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Louisville is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Louisville animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Louisville – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is dedicated to finding proactive solutions to ending pet homelessness through spay/neuter, education and adoption.
