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!
Thanks for your interest in adopting a pet from Louisville Metro Animal Services!

Due to the high volume of same day adoptions, we encourage you to visit Animal House Adoption Center as soon as possible! Adoptions are done on a first come first serve basis. Please visit our website directly for further details and requirements.
Thanks to our Pay It Forward Adoption Program, cats older than 6 months and adult 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 $100 donation; puppies and small-breed dogs are a minimum $150 donation. *The Pay It Forward Program does not include the Jefferson County pet license*
