Lucy: The Paws Report, Feb. 12


The star of The Paws Report today at 3:30pm is Lucy, a four-year-old Jack Russell terrier mix who was rescued from a puppy mill in January. Before she was rescued, she lived in a small pen in an overcrowded shed and received little human interaction. Now at the Kentucky Humane Society, Lucy is eager to please and enjoys gentle attention. When you approach her in her kennel, she seems to be saying “Just give me a chance, I will be a good girl, I just need you to take it slow and let me learn how to accept your attention and love.” You can tell she wants to come out of her shell now and needs the right kind of person to be patient and understanding of what she has been through. While she is a little fearful of new things and loud noises, she seems indifferent to other dogs and really wants to be in a home with experienced animal people and kids over five years of age who understand her needs and sensitivities. Lucy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Please come visit her today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville.

Beatrice: The Paws Report, Jan. 29


Today at 3:30 pm meet Beatrice, a petite tabby cat with long, silky fur. This girl has it all: looks and personality. She is eight years old, and has been through a number of households through no fault of her own. One of her owners moved across the country and couldn’t take beautiful Beatrice with her. Beatrice was returned to the Kentucky Humane Society and adopted into a multi-cat household, but the resident cats were too much for her, so she came back to KHS. Beatrice is an affectionate, loving cat who will come up to you for a head scratch. When you stop, she will put her head under your hand for more. She also enjoys tucking her head right under your chin. Beatrice is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet Beatrice at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville or call 366-3355 to learn more. View all adoptable cats and dogs at
