LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – The Lexington Humane Society hopes you will consider adding a furry friend to your family this Memorial Day weekend.

$25 adoption fees on select dogs 6 months old or more. The promotion runs through the holiday weekend at the main adoption center on Old Frankfort Pike and the Petsmart location in Hamburg.

“We have certain times of the year where we have maybe more dogs than normal, and we’re just trying to clear out some space to find a forever home for all of them, mostly long-term dogs that have been here for a while. There’s a $25 dollar fee, we do have taxes and licensing if you’re in the Lexington-Fayette area,” said Natalie Moak, a Lexington Humane Society fundraising assistant.

A reminder that all adoptions must begin an hour and a half prior to close since it takes time to do the paperwork.
