    With just a little under a week left until Christmas there are still hundreds of pets needing their forever homes at Louisville Metro Animal Services. With a grateful heart we have seen many of the featured pets on here get homes. There are still many more pets waiting for their chance at happiness and we feature some of those this week.

    Buckie is an adult neutered male Labrador Retriever who loves to play with his tennis ball. He is a well behaved guy who knows commands. Buckie gets along with other dogs and does not like to get into trouble. This handsome black guy with the striking white chest and those pretty eyes is also housebroken. Look at that smile on his face how could you resist playing catch with him? If you think Buckie would make a great pal for you then have his Pet ID # A479211 ready when contacting Metro Animal Services about him.

    Here is little 3 year old male Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix Peter Pan. The name suits him as he is a fun playful little fellow. This little man loves to play and is full of energy. He needs work on the leash but since he is such a little dog he can be controlled with a harness until he learns how to walk properly on the leash. He will entertain you while you teach him to keep himself under control on the leash. If you think this bundle of little energy will keep you in stitches and put a smile on your face then have little Peter Pan’s Pet ID # A478459 handy when contacting Metro Animal Services about him.

    Meet little Razi. She is a young 6 month old Pit Bull mix puppy who needs a home. She gets along with other dogs and needs an understanding owner who won’t hold her Pit Bull breeding against her as she hasn’t done anything wrong. If you adopt little Razi from Metro Animal Services she gets free obedience training from Slugger City Bully Buddies. If you are willing to give her a chance at happiness please have her Pet ID # A480216 ready when contacting Metro Animal Services about her.

    Like Razi, Remi is also a young 6 month old male Pit Bull mix puppy who needs his forever home. Remi is a little shy but he also gets along with other dogs and needs his understanding owner. This little guy is eligible for free obedience training from Slugger City Bully Buddies if adopted from Metro Animal Services. He is such a little cutie how could you resist him. If you think you can give little Remi the responsible and loving home he needs then have his Pet ID # A480217 handy when contacting Metro Animal Services about him. Razi and Remi represent a number of Pit Bull/Pit Bull mix doggies now available at the shelter who need their understanding owners. Please check them all out.

    Basset Hound aficionados meet Cletus. He is a full blooded adult Basset Hound who does not like being in that cage. Long ears, sad droopy eyes, short legs with big paws, and that loooong body are all what makes Basset Hounds so adorable. Cletus is no exception and he would love it if someone would spring him out of there. If you think Cletus could be your hang out buddy then have his Pet ID # A481514 when contacting Metro Animal Services about him. I’m sure he would howl with joy if he got to go home with you. Yep, I have a Basset Hound so would love to see Cletus go to his forever home.

    Taka is a spayed purebred 4 year old female German Shepherd. She is regal and beautiful. She displays all the traits that German Shepherd aficionados love about the breed.

    Austin, Cleo, and Flynn represent the many adult cats and kittens at Metro Animal Services needing homes, many have been waiting for a long time. When you adopt a cat or dog from this facility you help prevent more unwanted pets because all dogs and cats are spayed or neutered before being adopted out. Metro Animal Services is also a “No kill” shelter that does not discriminate against any breed when offering pets out for adoption so supporting this facility is important.
