Cash: The Paws Report, Jan. 28


Today on The Paws Report at 3:30 pm meet 4-year-old Cash, a beautiful buff and white domestic medium hair mix. Cash started out life under difficult circumstances. He was one of many cats found in a hoarding situation. In spite of these difficulties, Cash is proving to be a most loving and confident cat. When staff members or volunteers sit down near Cash, he will jump happily on their laps and rub against them asking for pets. Cash loves to be petted. If we stroke his cheeks and run our hands down his back, Cash really enjoys it. If we scratch him at the base of his tail, he’s in heaven. Cash is looking for a forever home where he can get the love he craves. He appears to get along well with the other cats in his colony, and he definitely appears to be interested in all the people who come visit him. Cash is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come meet him today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. For more on Cash or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit

Cumo: The Paws Report, Jan. 21


On The Paws Report today at 3:30 pm:

Meet Cumo, a handsome, distinguished looking gentleman who loves everyone. If you stop to give him a pet, he will ask you for a belly rub. And how could anyone resist? With his earnest face, gentle manners and cute boxy head, Cumo has stolen the hearts of many staff and volunteers at the Kentucky Humane Society. Cumo came to KHS in September, and had a very bad case heartworms. He went through heartworm treatment with flying colors. Heartworms are not contagious, and KHS will continue to treat him until he is heartworm negative, even after he is in his new home. If you have a dog at home, we recommend a “meet and great” to make sure Cumo and his new brother or sis will get along. Cumo is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet Cumo at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville KY. View all adoptable pets at or call 502-366-3355 for more information.


Also, today, January 21, three local animal welfare agencies – Louisville Metro Animal Services, Kentucky Humane Society, and Saving Sunny, with support from Best Friends Animal Society – launched an adoption awareness campaign called Pit Bull Dogs Are Family. KHS, LMAS and Saving Sunny are all Best Friends Network Partners and are working together to save lives.

This awareness campaign shows everyday people with their everyday dogs. Beth Andrews of Beth Andrews Fine Photography took beautiful photos of local families. The goal is to encourage more people to adopt pitties in our community.

The campaign can be seen in billboards and on 60 TARC buses.
