Meet seven-year-old Idella, a gorgeous, full-figured gal in need of some love. This cat-nip crazy feline came to the Kentucky Humane Society in April when a family member became allergic to her, and she has been looking for a kind family to love ever since. Idella is a playful girl who loves, loves, loves toys! Give her a noisy toy to chase and she’ll be your best friend in no time. While Idella has tested positive for FIV, that doesn’t mean she can’t live a healthy, normal life. Her status does mean she should be either the only cat in the home or she should live with other cats who are also FIV positive. If you are looking for a lover of a cat, please come pay our Idella a visit. We know she’d love to see you! Idella is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Meet her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 214 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
We also will discuss July 4th pet safety tips! More pets are lost around July 4th than any day.
The WFPK Waterfront Wednesday® Concert Series is a monthly free concert on the Big Four Lawn in Louisville Waterfront Park, located next to the Big Four Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge. The Big Four Lawn “opens” at 5pm, and the music begins promptly at 6pm. Have questions? Check out our FAQ page!

Louisville singer/songwriter Joan Shelley about her CitySong video:
“This part of the Beargrass Creek Trail seems like a forgotten place within the city, in a corridor between the highway and Lexington road. Aside from the paved trail it is mostly left alone and so it is a wild seeming place, a refuge for small creatures that are pushed out of neighborhoods and plants that are let alone to grow in their natural shapes (invasive though they may be, it is more beautiful to see a un-lopped tree or vigorous blooming honeysuckle). It is the fastest escape for me in my neighborhood to give my eyes a rest from all the hard lines (power lines, telephone lines, guardrails, yellow lines) which in turn rests my mind. The creek is not very clean but you can still see ducks, herons, and turtles sunning themselves on logs. This kind of solitude allows thoughts, songs, and ideas to form.”
One of my favorite people to interview is musician Paul Thorn. He’s talented, funny, charming, smart and in his own words, “The Goodest”. He was here for our May Waterfront Wednesday and we got to visit for a bit.
Meet Shiloh, a pretty one-year-old kitty with unusual ears. Shiloh’s fur is almost all white except for a bit of gray on the top of her head. This sweetheart with yellow-green eyes came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter. When she arrived at our doors in April, her ears were quite infected – something we think she may have suffered from for a long time, as the shape of her ears are a bit unusual. (We affectionately think she looks a bit like Dr. Spock!) At KHS, our veterinary team treated her ears, and they look so much better! She’s definitely a happier cat now too, and she enjoys meeting new people and snuggling. Shiloh is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Meet Shiloh at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus at 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
KHS currently has 273 kittens and mama cats in foster care right now, and more are coming in! People interested in becoming foster caregivers should contact Kayla Saylor, or foster coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-366-3355 ext. 2260. KHS provides all the necessary supplies and training. Once the kittens are old enough for adoption (usually 2-4 weeks), they (and their moms) come back to KHS to be spayed/neutered and placed for adoption.
In addition, June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month; we are offering $10 adoptions on select cats the entire month. This is done in partnership with Best Friends Animal Society. LMAS is also offering the same adoption special all month long.
