Arry: The Paws Report, Feb. 18


Today on The Paws Report at 3:30 pm meet:

Arry is a two-year-old Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull mix who has been waiting to be adopted since November. This sweet, silly dog has a good sense of humor and loves meeting new people. She lived in a home with other dogs, but sometimes her energy can be a bit overwhelming. Therefore, we think she might do best with another high-energy dog, and we recommend a “meet and greet” with the resident dogs before adoption. According to her previous owner, Arry is far too interested in cats, so we recommend she be adopted by family without cats. She appears to play well with children of all ages. Arry is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet Arry at the Kentucky Humane Society’s East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane in Louisville. View all adoptable pets at or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Also, KHS issued its second Orange Flag Alert of the year. We are reminding people to bring their outside pets indoors. For outside dogs without indoor options, our Fern Cree, Pet Resort is offering free boarding through Feb. 20.

Mikey: The Paws Report, Feb. 11


On The Paws Report today at 3:30 pm:

Meet Mikey, and adorable black-and-white tuxedo kitten. Mikey came to the Kentucky Humane Society along with his mom, Noelle, and five siblings. The kittens were just two weeks old when they arrived, so they and their mom spent time in a temporary home, where they received love, attention and socialization – which is so important to growing kittens (and puppies). Now Mikey is ready for his forever home. This playful, silly kitten seems to get along well with other cats and loves meeting new people. Mikey is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Visit Mikey at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville. Learn more about KHS’ adoptable pets at or call 502-366-3355.

– KHS took in 17 dogs from a pretty sad hoarding situation in Western Kentucky last Friday. A number of the dogs will be available for adoption today. But a few will need temporary foster homes, including a pregnant Boxer/Basset Hound mix who is heartworm positive and two shy/fearful dogs who will need confidence building.

– We are in great need for foster homes right now and we would LOVE to get some new fosters! We have many animals waiting for temporary homes. Commitments can be as little as 2 weeks to a few months, and we are happy to work around foster parents’ schedules. Fostering truly saves lives: often we can only take in needy animals from other shelters (typically puppies, moms with nursing babies, and animals who need medical fostering) if we know we have foster families who can help.
