Cruz: The Paws Report, Dec. 2

Cruz

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet Cruz – a.k.a. “Sleepy Eyes.” Cruz is a six-year-old brown and white tabby, a true green-eyed soul cat deserving of a permanent home. He was found as a stray before transferring to the Kentucky Humane Society from another shelter. Somehow through it all, Cruz has retained his gentle spirit. Cruz’s future was uncertain after being diagnosed FIV+, but he can live a healthy life. He just shouldn’t live with other cats unless they are also FIV+. Cruz would love an easy going human who understands this and his subtle gestures, like purring for hugs, or staying in close proximity to affirm his affection and love. The only thing Cruz seems to love more than attention is treats. He gets so excited when he sees the treat bag that he’ll stick his entire head in it! Cruz is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Will you give this big-headed sweetheart a second chance at life? Come visit Cruz 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 had a very successful adoption promotion this past weekend where 179 animals found loving homes! KHS also has their annual Picture Your Pets with Santa event coming up this weekend on December 5th and 6th as well as next weekend on December 12th and 13th. In addition, they are running an adoption promotion on cats six months and over where their adoption fee will be greatly discounted.

Django Jamboree Ensemble on 91.9

Gypsy Jazz is a genre that Belgium guitarist Django Reinhardt (1910-1953) was best known for. There’s an intense local interest here and some Louisville musicians put together what’s called The Django Jamboree, now in its 5th year. Organizer Ben Andrews brought a few of the musicians by including guitarist Adrien Moignard from Paris. His playing blew my mind. Truly incredible. Enjoy!

Sammy: The Paws Report, Nov. 11

Sammy

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Eight-year-old Sammy is a lovely gray Tabby looking for her forever home. Sadly, her former owner passed away. Her owner’s daughter said Sammy prefers the company of humans over that of other cats and thought she would be happier in an only cat home. However, the daughter said that Sammy appears to like dogs. In addition, Sammy definitely seems to love people. She is friendly and loves to be petted. Sammy needs to get to know you before her true, affectionate personality comes out. Would you give her a chance? She’ll steal your heart. Sammy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She is also declawed. Come meet her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Also, KHS just took in 39 rescued dogs from Animal Rescue Corps on Thursday. Eleven of the dogs were saved from a puppy mill. The others came from a variety of neglect cases, including hoarding and an overwhelmed rescue group that turned in to a hoarding situation. 13 of the dogs have already been adopted; a few will need medical or behavioral help before they are ready for adoption. Others will be ready for adoption later this week.
