Lexington Humane Society hopes for more adoptions during National Pet Month


LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — May marks National Pet Month, a time to recognize the four-legged friends in our lives.

The Lexington Humane Society is currently holding a pet food drive through the end of May and a pet adoption event through May 8 with a $25 adoption fee on some animals. A spokesperson said pets provide many mental and physical benefits to their owners and families and often act as a support system.

They said they hope to see even more people consider adopting, especially during National Pet Month.

“We have hundreds of animals looking for homes every day. We adopt over 4,000 every year and they are animals that come from the streets, from families, from puppy mills, from rescues, everywhere and they are all looking for a chance so if you are looking to add someone to your family please come here and visit and adopt, we know you will find your best friend,” said Meghan Hawkins, Lexington Humane Society.

The Lexington Humane Society is also hosting an upcoming puppy meet. Information below:

“Join us for a meet and greet at our main adoption center, located at 1600 Old Frankfort Pike, between Huck the Brave Pup and his hero, Ethan. On May 9, from 3-6 p.m., we invite the community to meet these local heroes, hear their stories, and learn more about our Second Chances program which is committed to saving animals in need.

Tickets will be on sale until noon on May 9. The cost is $50 per person to attend and to minimize stress on the animals we will limit sales to groups of two. Stop by to show Huck and Ethan some love and take some pics, they can’t wait to meet you!!!”
