Big News coming out of the Lexington Humane Society and PetSmart Charities!! Tomorrow is their Grand Opening of an enhanced permanent pet-adoption center inside the Hamburg Crossing PetSmart store in Lexington. It's only the 7th of its kind in the United States!
The Lexington Humane Society has always been strong with in store adoptions. In fact, they were ranked #1 with in store adoptions across the country and currently they are ranked 2nd in the country! And those numbers will only go up with this new state of the art pet adoption center inside of a PetSmart Store. Having a permanent in store adoption center, with it's "Meet & Greet" area and dog play area, the Lexington Humane Society expects to adopt up to 500 more pets every year! 500 more! That's a lot of love!
This 1900 square foot in store adoption center has been completely funded by PetSmart Charities and PetSmart is not charging the Lexington Humane Society a dime for using it. LHS, in turn, provides the adoptable pets and the staff needed to run the adoption center which is open during regular store hours.

What's also great about this facility is that it extends the reach of the adoption center to another part of the Lexington area.
While I was there, I wound up seeing some of my buddies from my previous visits to the main adoption center for LHS. I saw Enzo...
And Enzo was in the dog play area with my other buddy Prancer!
Prancer was having a heck of a fun time playing with Enzo in the dog play area. The play area is great because of the glass walls! People in the store could see how much fun Prancer and Enzo were having with their buddies.
I met a few more new friends too like Bear who should be named "Teddy Bear" because of his sweet demeanor
And Chase who loved to chase the ball in the play area...
Chase was playing with a pit bull mom named Baby Girl. Baby Girl came to LHS with a litter of puppies. All her puppies have been adopted so now it's her turn to find a loving home.
|Baby Girl was a bit camera shy... but super sweet!|
There were many people checking out the kittens and dogs looking for new homes in the state of the art facility
And best of all, while I was there this little guy found a family he could call his own. Such a sweet face!
There's no greater feeling than when you Adopt Love!
Congrats to the Lexington Humane Society and PetSmart Charities for helping the homeless pets in Lexington, Kentucky!
