Florentine: The Paws Report, June 18


Today on The Paws Report at 3:30 pm:

Looking to adopt the sweetest, most easy going cat in the world? Then come meet beautiful Florentine! Florentine is just 6-1/2 pounds. This petite tabby/calico has a beautiful tiger-striped coat with speckles of orange. Her large green eyes also have flecks of orange in them. She really is a beauty! In addition to her stunning looks, Florentine is as sweet as her name. She is a quiet cat who loves to be held. She will gently purr when you pet her. Florentine came to the Kentucky Humane Society with her kitten. Her kitten has been adopted, and now it’s Florentine’s turn to find a loving, forever home. Florentine enjoys the company of the cats, and polite dogs don’t seem to bother her. Really, she’s the perfect cat – at least in our humble opinion! Florentine is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. All she’s missing is a home. Could that be with you? Meet Florentine 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.

Molly: The Paws Report, June 11

Molly (1)

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30pm:

Molly is a beautiful three-year-old golden-colored Labrador Retriever/Boxer mix. At 33 pounds, she’s the perfect size: not too big, not to small, Molly is just right! Molly came to the Kentucky Humane Society when her owner moved and could not take her along. When Molly first arrived at KHS, she was a bit distressed. She didn’t know why she was abandoned or if her owner was ever going to come back for her. When anyone walked by her cage, she waited expectantly, hoping it was her owner. As the days passed, Molly resigned herself to her new reality. She has learned to love the walks that Kentucky Humane Society volunteers give her every day, and she loves getting belly rubs and treats. But while Molly has learned to accept her time at KHS, she really misses being in a home. If you are considering adopting a furry friend, please come meet Molly. This sweetheart will worm her way into your heart! Molly is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Molly is at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Pepper: The Paws Report, June 4


Today’s topic for The Paws Report at 3:30pm is about fostering an adoptable pet and we’ll share a recent Paws Report success story. Also our star to be featured is:

Pepper, a beautiful three-year-old torbie (tortoise shell/tabby) cat with an unusual orange and brown coat and bright green eyes. She’s a very sweet girl who happily accepts love from everyone who stops by to meet her. Pepper loves to be up high where she can get a bird’s eye view of things. She is very curious and will investigate everything. Want to make Pepper’s day? Give her a good scratch on her head, and she will fall head over paws for you! Pepper is spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and ready for adoption at the Kentucky Humane Society’s East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane, behind Westport Village.
