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

Thomas: The Paws Report, April 1


Today on The Paws Report:

Three-year-old Thomas is a beautiful black domestic short-hair mix. He’s the first to greet you in the cat colony and the last to leave. If you could just give him a scratch on his back by his tale, that would be great. Thomas is a lap kitty, and will want to hang out with you on the couch or while you work on the computer. When Thomas has had enough loving, he will be happy to play, but play isn’t his top priority. His top priority is investigating what you are doing that could be so interesting that you stopped paying attention to him. Thomas is sweet and loving and waiting for the perfect forever home. He’s 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 Thomas or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit
