Introducing the one, the only, Leo! Six-year-old Leo is a stunning, Turkish Angora mix with glowing green eyes and a solid white coat. He came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owners were no longer able to care for him; now he’s ready to find his forever home. The Turkish Angora breed is known for their long, silky fur that invites you to stroke them all day long. Leo would be so pleased if you would, too, because he absolutely loves attention! This sweet boy is a total chatterbox who meows to tell us how happy he is and remind us to pet him. Leo is also a gentleman! He plays very gently and will place his paw on your leg to give a warning before jumping into your lap. He has lived with children in his previous home and does well with children of all ages. He coexisted peacefully with the family dog, but can’t seem to find any common ground with cats. Because of this, he will need a home without other felines. Leo is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Do you have a place in your home for a classy cat like Leo? Come visit him 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 is having a free Gelding and Wellness Clinic for owned horses on Saturday, October 10th at the Prestonsburg Equine Center in Eastern KY. This is the third free Gelding Clinic we have implemented this year and it will provide free castration, vaccination and dental services to owned horses. We are hoping these gelding clinics will help provide population control measures in areas where stallions are running free and producing unwanted foals.
In other news, KHS recently took in two puppies from Western KY who are in horrible condition. The puppies are missing most of their fur due to Mange, are very underweight and very under socialized. They will need months of TLC to recover and we are asking the public to help us name these two pups, one a boy and one a girl.
Today on The Paws Report at 3:30 we have two special guests with The Ky. Humane Society as always and Kelsey Westbrook from Saving Sunny, Inc. to talk about this year’s Pitty Fair. We also have a puppy who needs fostering named Neptune. Below is Neptune’s story plus details on the Pitty Fair 2015.
Why should you foster shelter puppies? For the kisses! Venus is a five-week-old pit bull puppy who came to the Kentucky Humane Society along with her seven siblings (all named for planets) and their mom from an overcrowded shelter in Kentucky. Venus and her siblings are all weaned, and they will need temporary foster homes for about four weeks—until they are old enough to be spayed or neutered and adopted. KHS places 2-3 puppies in each volunteer foster home and provides all the supplies; all you need to provide is love! Many of our foster parents have other pets at home and work full-time; others are students or retirees who don’t want to commit to full-time to pet ownership. If you are interested in learning more about fostering, visit our website at www.kyhumane.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our main number at 502-366-3355. Fostering is rewarding and helps save lives!
Also, the 2015 Pitty Fair will take place this Saturday, Sept. 26 at St. Joseph’s Children’s Home on Frankfort Avenue from 11am-3pm. Details can be found on their facebook event page here – https://www.facebook.com/events/109791599375305/

Looking for a fabulous medium-haired orange kitty who loves everyone? Then you must meet Kale. This handsome, affectionate five-month-old kitten came to the Kentucky Humane Society at just two weeks of age. His mother was unable to nurse Kale and his four siblings, so another mother cat in their former home accepted them into her brood. But with nine kittens now to feed, the mother was struggling. And Kale and his siblings–who were a week younger than the other litter–were unable to compete for milk. When they arrived at our doors, Kale and his siblings needed immediate help. We quickly found an experienced, medical foster home to bottle feed the younger kittens. Sadly, one of the kittens was too weak to survive. But Kale and the remaining three kittens thrived, and now they are ready for their forever homes. The kittens are spayed and neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Meet Kale – and his siblings – at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable dogs and cats at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Looking for a happy-go-lucky dog with a gentle nature? Look no further than Lucy! Eight-year-old Lucy is a gorgeous Beagle mix looking for someone she can love forever.

As far as staff and our volunteers are concerned, Lucy is the total package. She walks well on a leash, knows many of her basic commands and even does well with other animals. While she may be eight years old, Lucy still has a lot of pep in her step! She loves going for long walks with our volunteers and running around the play yard. If a lively, gentle, loving companion is what you’re after, come visit Lucy today! Lucy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations.

Meet the one and only Carl! Carl is an adorable, orange tabby with bright yellow eyes and soft, striped fur. This gorgeous kitty made his way to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owner could no longer take care of him. Now that he’s here, he’s on the hunt for a family to love for the rest of his days. One-year-old Carl is a total lover, and the true definition of a lap cat. There’s nothing this sweet boy enjoys more than a good belly rub, a scratch behind the ears and sitting in the first available lap he finds! In his previous home, Carl had three cats and a dog to play and cuddle with. He misses his old pals very much and would love a forever home with other animals to keep him company. If you’re looking for an affectionate feline to spend your days with, come visit Carl today! Carl is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Visit him 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.

On the Paws Report today at 3:30: Ty was ADOPTED! YAY!
Meet Ty, a gorgeous, easy going “pocket sized” German Shepherd mix with a super sweet personality. Ty has a beautiful tan coat with a black mask on his face. His amber-colored eyes will win you over with their expressiveness, and his black “eyebrows” are sure to make you laugh: he reminds us a bit of Groucho Marx or even Wile E. Coyote! Ty came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter. He was absolutely terrified when he arrived, and he remained scared at our shelter. While Ty wanted to make friends with our staff, he found the shelter to be too scary. So the behavioral staff place him in a temporary foster home to see if he would open up. Well, Ty is a different dog in his foster home! His foster family says Ty is an absolute delight. Ty is house trained, very easy to walk on a leash, and is quite the couch potato at home, and each day he gains more confidence. He wants to be wherever his foster family is, and he enjoys laying at their feet. Ty does very well with the other dog in the home and has enjoyed meeting other canines on his walks. He also seems to do fine with cats. Ty loves going for car rides too. Ty also hasn’t been much of a barker either. If you are looking for a very laid back, handsome, sweet dog who isn’t much fuss, you must meet easy-going Ty. He may be a bit shy at first, but he relaxes once he knows he is safe and loved. We hope you’ll give him a chance.
Also, the SNIP Clinic is offering $20 spay/neuters for Chihuahuas in August thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities. Chihuahuas are in the top five most common breeds surrendered to Louisville’s shelters.
