Adopt a VIP Champ!

Give a VIP Champion a Permanent Home!
The VIP Champions Program promotes certain dogs and cats that have been in the shelter 60 days or longer. VIP Champions are likely adults 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.

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


Meet our adoptables 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 VIP Champion you are interested in adopting is currently in foster.

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