Lexington Humane Society suspended their volunteer program in all areas on Tuesday, March 17. The main adoption campus on Old Frankfort Pike is closed, but is assessing the possibility of adoptions by appointment. The Everyday Adoption Center at PetSmart in Hamburg expects to remain open, but those wanting to adopt must be preapproved and have a specific animal in mind to schedule an in-person visit. If you are interested in adopting, pictures of each animal can be found on the Lexington Humane Society’s website.


Your pet is essential

Even though PetSuites’ main lobby is closed to the public, they are still here for the Hamburg community. Their resort remains open for your four-legged friends and they are offering a discount to essential employees.

Staff at PetSuites are taking every precaution to keep you and your pets safe and healthy.

“We understand that these are ‘ruff’ times so we are here to support you and your furry family in any way we can,” says Frances Ankeny, of PetSuites in Hamburg. “We have taken extra precautions such as doing curbside service only for our pet parents and also stepping up our already rigorous cleaning routine. We also mist all collars and leashes with our hospital grade disinfectant and we are ensuring that we are washing our hands a er every guest interaction.”
