“From their website: LouisvilleMetro Animal Services' Animal Care Center receives an Metro Animal Servicesaverage of over 14,000 animals annually. Thousands are brought to our shelter as a result of service requests from the community and many are surrendered by their owners. Metro Animal Services employs 17 Animal Control Officers who investigate over 24,000 complaints in an average year that range from bite cases to severe inhumane treatment. They drive over 225,000 miles a year covering Louisville Metro's 386 sq. miles. Officers are on duty from 7 am to 11 pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, including holidays. Besides enforcing the Louisville Metro Animal Care and Control Ordinance, the center has a 9-person animal care staff that includes a veterinarian, two veterinary technicians, and two adoption coordinators. The animal care staff spends countless hours caring for the animals at our facility. Many of these animals are placed for adoption through our adoption program or transferred to placement organizations. Adoptable animals can be viewed on this website (see Meet Adoptable Animals) or at the Animal Care Center. Adoption hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 am - 5 pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10 am - 6 pm, and Wednesday and Friday 10 am - 7 pm. Regular office hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 am - 5 pm. The Animal Care Center is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to care for and accept animals.”

Thanks for all you do!


I adopted "Cooper" known at MAS as "Reece" this past December and just wanted to thank all of you for your help in bring us together. He was lucky to find his way into your hands. If it hadn't been for the dedication and hard work you all do he would never have found his way into my home and heart. I know an overwhelming amount of animals pass through your doors and I just wanted you to know there are many of us who appreciate what you do, especially Cooper & Me !!

Doing as good as they can with what little they have


It breaks my heart when ever I have gone to the Metro sight. The employees are underpaid and they are all understaffed, but I really feel like they are doing the best they can with what little the city gives them.
