Adopt a qualifying Champion and receive a VIP package worth more than $500 dollars in savings

The Long-Stay VIP Champions Program promotes specific adoptable dogs that have been in the shelter 30 days or longer. These dogs are sometimes overlooked for months by potential adopters in favor of younger or small breed dogs. The pilot program was launched in October 2018, and has found homes for more than 50 dogs that had been in the LMAS Shelter for more than a month.

"We want to give every adoptable dog the best chance of making it out of the shelter,” said Ozzy Gibson, LMAS shelter director. “Adoption fees have already been waived for our Long-Stay Champions. The VIP package is further incentive for potential adopters to consider giving a one of these awesome dogs a permanent home.”

Every Long-Stay Champion adoption includes a VIP package worth more than $500 in savings:

  • Wellness checks for 3 years
  • Vaccinations for 3 years
  • Canine license (3-year)
  • Collar, leash & harness
  • Large crate
  • 7 Days of daycare at PetSuites Louisville

*Adopters will also be entered in a Raffle to win $500 (Drawing after every tenth adoption)

Adoption fees are waived for approved applicants thanks to the non-profit Friends of Metro Animal Services and the Pay It Forward Free Adoptions Program. Every Champion is spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Visit the LMAS Shelter (3705 Manslick Rd.) to meet our Long-Stay Champion dogs that are waiting for forever homes. No appointment is required. The shelter is open Monday-Friday 12-6pm, and Saturdays 11am-2pm.

*Some Champions are currently in foster homes and an appointment is required to meet them. To schedule an appointment or for more information about a specific Long-Stay Champion, contact LMAS Adoption Coordinators: [email protected] or [email protected], or call 502-473-PETS.

*Meet and greets are required for families with children. LMAS offers dog and cat testing upon request.
