Our Mission

As the local animal shelter serving Louisville/Jefferson County, our organization took in almost 8,000 animals last year. We give these homeless pets a second chance through adoption, rescue, reunification with owners, and so much more. Be a hero to one of our shelter pets: adopt one today!

Adoption Policy

All of our adoptable cats and dogs have been given flea preventative and have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. All dogs have been heartworm-tested, while all cats have been FIV/FeLV-tested. Pets old enough for a rabies vaccine and who will be living in Jefferson County receive a one-year license. LMAS also periodically has other pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs available for adoption.


Thanks to our Pay It Forward Adoption Special, cats older than 6 months and dogs over 40 pounds can be adopted for free, although we do ask you to consider paying it forward and making a donation so we can continue the free adoption chain. Kittens are a minimum $25 donation; puppies and small-breed dogs are a minimum $100 donation.


We are committed to helping you find a pet who is a good fit for your particular family. Whatever personality, energy level, or sociability level you need, we have a pet for you. You do NOT have to live in Jefferson C
