Today on The Paws Report at 3:30pm: Are you looking for a great family dog? Meet Latte, a beautiful, one-year-old Collie mix who has never met a stranger. He plays well with children of all ages and with other dogs too. Latte loves toys, but best of all he likes to play fetch: throw a tennis ball, and he’ll happily bring right back to you and smile while he waits for you to throw it again. When Latte came to the Kentucky Humane Society, he had a tumor on his leg: a Good Samaritan wanted to help, but she couldn’t adopt another dog. Instead, she paid for surgery to remove the tumor. The growth was benign, and now Latte is ready for his forever home. Latte is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come meet Latte today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. View all adoptable pets online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
Today on The Paws Report at 3:30pm we have Salt, a four-year-old black domestic short-hair mix with striking light green eyes. Salt starts purring as soon as you open his cage. He loves getting rubbed on the head, especially behind the ears, and he seems content to accept pets for quite awhile. Salt likes to stroke his face along your hand and then lean down to show you just where to scratch. If you pet him long enough, Salt will look you in the eye and nuzzle his face against yours to tell you how much he loves the attention. Salt is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come see Salt today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. View all pets online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information. KHS is having their annual Black Friday adoption special the day after Thanksgiving: no adoption fees for black/mostly black cats and dogs age 1 year and older. It’s a way for us to raise awareness about “Black Dog/Black Cat Syndrome,” in which pets with black fur spend up to twice as long in shelters as pets with less common colors and markings.
Today at 3:30pm meet Marco, an eight-year-old Shih Tzu mix available for adoption from the Kentucky Humane Society. We don’t know much about Marco’s past because he came in from another shelter. But we do know that he loves to play fetch. He will go get the ball and make you chase him until you throw it for him to go and retrieve. Other than playing fetch, Marco is very laid back. He is an older dog so he doesn’t need as much attention, just love. Marco knows commands like sit and appears to be potty trained. Marco does have dry eyes and feels better with artificial tear drops, and he appears to be blind in one eye. But he doesn’t mind, so you shouldn’t either! He is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all his vaccinations. Come meet Marco today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus.

The star of The Paws Report today at 3:30 is Grant , a Poodle/Bichon Frise mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society after he ended up at a local public shelter. We don’t know how this wonderful senior pet became homeless. He’s a quiet, well-behaved gentleman who loves being near his human. Grant is a cuddle buddy who will tuck his head right under your chin when you pick him up. Grant is house trained, loves to go for walks and car rides, and enjoys meeting new people and other dogs. He greets everyone he meets with a gentle, relaxed and happy tail wag. After a few weeks in various shelters, he was thrilled to be taken home to a foster home, where he got along with the resident dogs and enjoyed meeting house guests. Grant loves to sleep either in bed with his human or on a dog bed next to his human. He does not like to be crated: he wants to be right with you. And being the perfect gentleman, it’s easy to comply to his wishes. Grant doesn’t mind at all being bathed or groomed. Unfortunately, Grant has had some pretty bad ear infections in his past (probably due to untreated allergies), so his hearing is a bit dulled. In addition to Grant’s great personality, he is gorgeous: and did you notice he looks like a miniature polar bear? If you are looking for an easy going, loving older dog who still has lots of years of love to give, please consider Grant. He will pay you back with sweet kisses, happy smiles and adoring looks. If you would like to meet Grant, call his KHS foster parent at 502-515-3158. View all adoptable cats and dogs at www.kyhumane.org.
Today at 3:30pm, meet Laine, an adorable nine-year-old Schnauzer mix. Don’t let her age fool you, she still has a lot of energy and loves to play. Her favorite part of the day is when she gets to go for a walk. She loves to smell everything and she loves when people pet and love on her. Laine has never met a stranger and she loves people, but sometimes little kids become just a little too much for her, so a home without kids under 5 years old would best suit her. Laine does have some eye problems, but just needs eye drops and she’s really good with them. Laine is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Visit her at our Main Campus, 241 Steedly Lane. For more information, call 366-3355 or visit our website, www.kyhumane.org.
Today at 3:30 pm meet Buxton, a delightful one-year-old Labrador Retriever/Beagle mix. Buxton loves to go for walks and stays close by when off the leash in the Kentucky Humane Society’s fenced-in play yard. Buxton loves to run around, but he always keeps an eye on you because he wants to play with you. He loves people and getting back scratches and attention. He is great with children of all ages and also adores playing with other dogs. Buxton will require a lot of love and attention because he’s still in his teen years and is full of energy. He would make a great addition to an active family. He has been neutered, micro-chipped and is up-to-date on his vaccinations. Visit Buxton at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, or call 366-3355. View all adoptable dogs and cats at www.kyhumane.org.
Today at 3:30 pm meet Cindy, a petite, one-year-old tabby cat who came to the Kentucky Humane Society with her five nursing kittens from another shelter. The family was placed in a foster home until the kittens were old enough to be weaned. The kittens no longer need their mom, so Cindy is available for adoption. Cindy is an affectionate, friendly little girl who loves attention. We think after all that time with babies, she enjoys being the center of attention! Cindy does well with other cats and is currently living in a Cat Colony room where she enjoys watching the birds, interacting with the other cats and being petted by visitors. But as happy as Cindy is, she would love to have a home of her own, with her own human to shower her with the attention and love she deserves. Cindy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, or call 502-366-3355.

Cindy is dressed up for Halloween in her photo, as she’s getting ready for our Howl-o-ween adoption special, which runs this Thursday-Sunday at all KHS locations as well as Louisville Metro Animal Services. Folks can learn more about the adoption special at our website. www.kyhumane.org. Adoption specials help us save more lives by motivating people to adopt – allowing us to take more local animals in need.
Today at 3:30pm: Meet Niecee, an affectionate 11-month-old Shepherd/Cattle Dog/Labrador Retriever mix who loves children of all ages and every person she meets. Niecee craves affection: she’ll crawl into your lap and will sweetly invite you to pet her. Niecee is under a year old and so she still has puppy energy, but she quickly settles down for petting. Niecee is selective in the dogs she likes. She may be best as either an only dog, or with a dog her own size in the home. If you are interested in Niecee and have a dog at home, please bring your dog to meet Niecee to see how they get along. Niecee is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Meet her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, or call 502-366-3355. View all adoptable pets at http://www.kyhumane.org.
