Wells: The Paws Report, May 17

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Wells is an adorable baby Chihuahua who came to the Kentucky Humane Society along with his mother, two siblings, and 19 other dogs and cats after he was rescued by Animal Rescue Corps from a hoarding-type situation in Tennessee. Wells and his brother and sister were very ill when they were rescued, and they required time and TLC in Kentucky Humane Society foster homes. The puppies had demodectic mange, a skin disease that can affect dogs and puppies who don’t receive proper nutrition or who are stressed or very young. Thankfully demodex is not contagious to other animals, and Wells and his siblings are responding well to the treatment. Wells is now looking for someone to spoil him with love and attention. Wells loves toys, wearing sweaters and being held. Could you be his forever family? Meet Wells at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Call 5­02-366-3355 for more information or visit www.kyhumane.org to see all our adoptable animals.
