LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro Animal Shelter is running a new promotion to help reduce overcrowding in its current facility.

All adoption fees are waived for the month of July.

"We put an end to euthanizing animals because there wasn't enough space for them in 2017." said Ozzy Gibson, LMAS Shelter Director.  "But that's a real possibility the longer the shelter operates near, or at max capacity."
