Adopt A Long Stay Champion

Give a Long-Stay Champion a Permanent Home!
The Long-Stay VIP Champions Program promotes certain dogs and cats that have been in the shelter 30 days or longer. Long-Stay Champions are mostly adults, large breed dogs who are often overlooked by potential adopters in favor of younger and small breed dogs and adult cats.

Adoption fees are waived for approved applicants thanks to the Pay It Forward Free Adoptions Program, which is sponsored by the non-profit, Friends of Metro Animal Services (FOMAS). Spay/neuter surgery, microchipping and vaccinations are included with every adoption. Long-Stay Champion adoptions also include a VIP package worth more than $500 in savings!

The VIP Package includes:

  • Wellness checks for 3 years
  • Vaccinations for 3 years
  • Pet license (3-year)
  • Collar, leash & harness
  • Large crate
  • Bag of food
  • Toy

​​*Adopters of Long-Stay Champions will be entered in a raffle to win $500, sponsored by the non-profit, Friends of Metro Animals Services (FOMAS). Drawings take place after every tenth adoption and LMAS will notify the winner.

Meet our adoptable Long Stay Champions at Animal House Adoption Center, which is open from 12-6pm daily, and Fridays from 12-7pm. 

*Walk-ins are welcome and you do not need an appointment, unless the Long-Stay Champion you are interested in adopting is currently in foster.

To schedule an appointment, contact LMAS adoption services, or call 502-473-PETS.
