We are working on something amazing for our furry friends! Please take a moment to learn about who we are. If you want more information or want to learn about volunteering opportunities, please send us a message. We would love to hear from you!


Friends of Metro Animal Services was formed in 2009 as the 501(c)(3) non-profit fundraising entity for Louisville Metro Animal Services. Since then, FOMAS has been working hard to provide additional dollars for LMAS. Those funds allow the shelter to go above and beyond, and offer services that exceed what LMAS’ government budget would allow. We are dedicated to saving animals’ lives. Our partnership with LMAS allows us to do just that. The funds we raise contribute to increasing LMAS’ live release rate. In 2013, the average live release rate was 68%. It is now consistently higher than 80%. While that is a vast improvement, we know with your help we can eventually bring the live release rate at LMAS to 90%. Our goal for 2017 is to raise a significant amount of money to fund additional life-saving medical vouchers, free adoption specials, and free spay and neuter clinics throughout the community.
