Nova: The Paws Report, April 15


Our star of The Paws Report today at 3:30:

Meet two-year-old Nova, a lovable Australian Shepherd mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter. Nova spent some time in foster care while being treated for heartworm. While Nova seemed timid in the shelter, once in her foster home she really came out of her shell, revealing this sweet girl’s true nature. According to her foster mom, she is a total lap dog, rubbing her beautiful coat against everyone she meets. She’s also very playful and loved running around the yard and romping with the other dogs in the household. Nova also appears house trained, having only two accidents during the entire duration of her stay in foster care. If you’re looking for a cuddly companion, come by and play with Nova! Nova is spayed, microchipped and up to date on all vaccinations. You can meet Nova at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. For more on Nova or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit
