Venus & Pitty Fair 2015: Paws Report, 9/23/15


Today on The Paws Report at 3:30 we have two special guests with The Ky. Humane Society as always and Kelsey Westbrook from Saving Sunny, Inc. to talk about this year’s Pitty Fair. We also have a puppy who needs fostering named Neptune. Below is Neptune’s story plus details on the Pitty Fair 2015.

Why should you foster shelter puppies? For the kisses! Venus is a five-week-old pit bull puppy who came to the Kentucky Humane Society along with her seven siblings (all named for planets) and their mom from an overcrowded shelter in Kentucky. Venus and her siblings are all weaned, and they will need temporary foster homes for about four weeks—until they are old enough to be spayed or neutered and adopted. KHS places 2-3 puppies in each volunteer foster home and provides all the supplies; all you need to provide is love! Many of our foster parents have other pets at home and work full-time; others are students or retirees who don’t want to commit to full-time to pet ownership. If you are interested in learning more about fostering, visit our website at www.kyhumane.org or email foster@kyhumane.org, or call our main number at 502-366-3355. Fostering is rewarding and helps save lives!

Also, the 2015 Pitty Fair will take place this Saturday, Sept. 26 at St. Joseph’s Children’s Home on Frankfort Avenue from 11am-3pm. Details can be found on their facebook event page here – https://www.facebook.com/events/109791599375305/

Kale: The Paws Report, Sept. 16


On The Paws Report today at 3:30:

Looking for a fabulous medium-haired orange kitty who loves everyone? Then you must meet Kale. This handsome, affectionate five-month-old kitten came to the Kentucky Humane Society at just two weeks of age. His mother was unable to nurse Kale and his four siblings, so another mother cat in their former home accepted them into her brood. But with nine kittens now to feed, the mother was struggling. And Kale and his siblings–who were a week younger than the other litter–were unable to compete for milk. When they arrived at our doors, Kale and his siblings needed immediate help. We quickly found an experienced, medical foster home to bottle feed the younger kittens. Sadly, one of the kittens was too weak to survive. But Kale and the remaining three kittens thrived, and now they are ready for their forever homes. The kittens are spayed and neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Meet Kale – and his siblings – at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable dogs and cats at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
