LMAS Waives All Fees To Reclaim A Pet

September 14, 2020

Louisville Metro Animal Services announces all redemption fees are waived for pets owners who claim their pet at the LMAS Shelter. Friends of Metro Animal Services (FOMAS) is covering all fees in an effort to help pet owners facing financial hardship during the Covid-19 Pandemic. FOMAS announced it would use a grant awarded by the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels to cover the cost of reclaiming a pet at the LMAS Shelter. Redemption fees are waived until funding expires.

*To qualify for waived redemption fees, pet owners must have no previous violations and court fees are not included. The cost of microchipping, licensing and vaccinations are included. 

LMAS will not keep a pet impounded due to its owner's inability to pay, and will work with owners who visit the LMAS Shelter to claim their pet.
