February 15, 2018

Louisville – Louisville Metro Animal Services, in charge of keeping the public safe when it comes to animals just recently reached a mile stone by becoming a no kill animal shelter.

           Councilwoman Madonna Flood (D-24) announces the next South Central Regional Forum will focus on the work of the men and women of LMAS on Wednesday, February 21st.

          “Animal control has been one of the top safety concerns of the Metro Council. We have worked with LMAS to pass needed protection ordinances and fund better facilities to ensure neighborhoods are protected and animals are treated humanely,” says Flood.

          The forum is set for the new South Central Regional Library at 7400 Jefferson Boulevard from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

          Louisville Metro Animal Services Director Ozzy Gibson will be the featured speaker at the forum and address the mission of LMAS and day to day operations of a shelter. He will discuss the 2017 Statistics that helped them achieve the no kill milestone! He will also talk about future plans and what we, as a community, need to do to help the pet population.

           There may also be a few four-legged friends in attendance.

          “I encourage everyone to come out and get a better understanding of how to be a good pet owner. It is also a chance to learn about how you can report a dangerous animal in your neighborhood,” says Flood.

          The South Central regional Forums are sponsored by Councilwoman Flood and Council members James Peden (R-23), Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) and Barbara Shanklin (D-2).
