Toronto band Fast Romantics are making their way across the states and winning new fans every day. Their new song “Julia” will appear on an upcoming EP, plus they performed a brand new song not available anywhere yet.
“Incredible experimental electronic music. The artist behind The Advisory Circle is Jon Brooks who had an obsession with public information films from the 1970s. These records are always on in the bus at just the right time.”
Gabor Szabo – 3 King Fishers
“Everyone who knows, knows that every record by him through 1973 is genius. He’s a Hungarian guitarist that I’m obsessed with. My favorite jazz guitarist of them all.”
Jessica Pratt – Game That I Play
“Jessica is a young singer/songwriter currently based in Los Angeles who’s made two beautiful, melancholy, baroque records. A great guitarist and my favorite lyricist of anyone that’s not deceased or still in their 20s.”
John Mayall – Saw Mill Gulch Road
“The great John Mayall from his 1969 album Turning Point. Beautiful pastoral English blues. Your perfect Fall day kind of record.”
John Sebastian – Face of Appalachia
“A gorgeous song written and produced by Lowell George. A smoky, morning song.”
Gentle Giant – Black Cat
“As the days grow shorter and sunlight fades, this is the perfect autumn twilight number.”

Jacob is a sweet, loving Hound mix who would make an awesome family dog! This seven-month-old big puppy loves squeaky toys, playing fetch, going for walks and just hanging out with his human friends. On his walks, Jacob is happy to meet and greet everyone he sees, young and old. Jacob also loves the company of other dogs. Jacob has spent some time recently in a foster home, and he has be great about not having accidents in the house. At night he sleeps in a crate next to his foster family. He is so well behaved that sometimes his foster family forgets he’s only seven months old! Jacob is also a staff and volunteer favorite at the Kentucky Humane Society; we love how easy going, sweet and loving he is. Unfortunately for Jacob, he has spent half of his life in a shelter because of a health condition. You see, Jacob has Hemophilia, a blood disorder that makes it difficult for him to stop bleeding if he gets hurt. As a result, Jacob’s physical activity needs to be monitored and he will need ongoing vet care. Jacob is a special dog who will need a special family who can meet the challenges of his disease head-on. Could you be the one he’s waiting for? Jacob is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you wish to meet Jacob, call his foster parent at 502-762-3729 to learn more and to set up a time to meet this amazingly sweet dog.

Introducing the one, the only, Leo! Six-year-old Leo is a stunning, Turkish Angora mix with glowing green eyes and a solid white coat. He came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owners were no longer able to care for him; now he’s ready to find his forever home. The Turkish Angora breed is known for their long, silky fur that invites you to stroke them all day long. Leo would be so pleased if you would, too, because he absolutely loves attention! This sweet boy is a total chatterbox who meows to tell us how happy he is and remind us to pet him. Leo is also a gentleman! He plays very gently and will place his paw on your leg to give a warning before jumping into your lap. He has lived with children in his previous home and does well with children of all ages. He coexisted peacefully with the family dog, but can’t seem to find any common ground with cats. Because of this, he will need a home without other felines. Leo is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Do you have a place in your home for a classy cat like Leo? Come visit him today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Learn about all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.
KHS is having a free Gelding and Wellness Clinic for owned horses on Saturday, October 10th at the Prestonsburg Equine Center in Eastern KY. This is the third free Gelding Clinic we have implemented this year and it will provide free castration, vaccination and dental services to owned horses. We are hoping these gelding clinics will help provide population control measures in areas where stallions are running free and producing unwanted foals.
In other news, KHS recently took in two puppies from Western KY who are in horrible condition. The puppies are missing most of their fur due to Mange, are very underweight and very under socialized. They will need months of TLC to recover and we are asking the public to help us name these two pups, one a boy and one a girl.
