VERSAILLES, Ky. (LEX 18)  — More than 150 animals have new homes in Woodford County.

The Woodford Humane Society is in the midst of an adoption drive, which runs from Dec. 7 through Dec. 22.

Quantrell Subaru is sponsoring one adoption per household during this time frame, meaning people can take a new family member home for free.

As pets are adopted and the stalls are emptied, more animals are brought in from surrounding counties with the hopes of finding a furever home.

Despite the excitement surrounding adding a family member in time for the holidays, Kaity Hoffman, Woodford Humane Society's Executive Director, warns that pets are a big commitment and to not make the decision to adopt lightly.

“Our application process allows us to really have those conversations with people,” said Hoffman. “But it is definitely something to think about because you’re making a 15 to 18 year commitment when you take a pet home.”

The last day for the adoption drive is Sunday, after which adoption fees will return to normal.
