The Woodford Humane Society is making a plea to the public to adopt their animals and give them love and a home for the holidays.

In a release, WHS says "for most of us, the holidays are a time for family; maybe that’s what brings this issue into sharper focus this time of year. The hundreds of pets in our care don’t have families to spend the holidays with, but they could – they just need someone to adopt."

WHS also points out that for every pet that is adopted, a spot is opened up in their shelter to house another pet waiting for their forever home.

The Society says it places 90-95% of their pets into homes and they put no time limit on the adoption of an animal.

According to their website, WHS receives "no government funding, we are completely dependent on private contributions to continue to provide care to 1,200 animals each year."

In their release, the shelter finishes it's plea, "here’s our holiday wish, on behalf of our staff, volunteers, supporters, and pets present and future: a busy adoption center through December and beyond, and the gift of a home for the holidays – and forever – for our patient pets."

The adoption center is open 7 days a week at noon, and you can contact a staff member at (859) 873-5491 or manager@woodfordhumane.org.

There may also be a shelter or humane society in your area that has plenty of pets available for adoption. To find one near you, go here.
