Looking for a cuddly, sweet little lovebug of a dog? Thelma has it all! This cute Chug (Chihuahua/Pug mix) has a huge personality that belies her 12-pound size. We estimate her to be about 10 months old. Thelma loves meeting new people, and this happy little dog is always up for the next adventure. While we think she may have lived with another small dog in her last home, Thelma loves barking at big dogs – the bigger, the better, in Thelma’s book! Thelma may be small, but she’s mighty! Sweet Thelma will be available for adoption later this week from the Kentucky Humane Society. Check out all adoptable animals at KHS at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Three-month-old Tay came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter where she had very few options. This Australian Cattle Dog mix is all puppy. She’s sweet, loving and ready play. She will need guidance and love to grow into the dog she knows she can be. She’ll need plenty of exercise, patience and good humor. She needs a family to let her grow up healthy, happy and ready for the world. Could that home be with you? Tay is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. You can meet Tay at our East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane in Louisville. For more on Tay or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit kyhumane.org.

Hi, I’m Ricky Bobby! I’m a two-year-old cat who found myself at the Kentucky Humane Society after I was transferred from an overcrowded shelter with no room for me. Now I’m on the hunt for a forever home! I’ve been told there’s a movie named after me. I’m a solid guy with a brown tabby coat. My eyes are a soft green that want to see everything there is to see. I have a very loud purr that sounds just like a race car, and I can be very fast when it comes to winning over your heart. So Talladega has nothing to compare to me. I also have something called FIV. Basically it just means that my immune system is not as strong as it should be. Because of this, I should either be the only cat in the home or live with cats who are also FIV positive. Don’t get me wrong, I can still live a long and happy life with you. I just need someone who understands I may need more vet visits than other cats. Anyway, I want all your attention and love so I’m the ONLY cat you will ever really need. Won’t you give me a chance? I’m neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Meet me at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville. View all adoptable pets at KHS at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

We have two dogs and two rescues to feature on The Paws Report today at 3:30:
Saving Sunny, Inc. is a great organization doing important work in rescuing, rehabilitating and adopting out Bully Breeds and other dogs who have often suffered abuse and neglect. They are on the front lines to change the misconceptions and myths about Pit Bulls and combat breed discrimination as well. Pitty Fair 2016 takes place this Saturday at St. Joseph’s Children’s Home from 1-7pm. More information on their event page here.
Kelsey Westbrook is a founding member of Saving Sunny and will be joining us today to talk about the Pitty Fair and has an adorable dog up for adoption named Rosie. Here’s more about her:
Sweet Rosie has not met anyone she has not wanted to shower with kisses. Lots of kisses! She loves to play with her foster brothers and go for walks, however she’s really quite medium energy and is mostly a a fan of snuggling in your lap. Her goal is to be as close to humans as possible! She is smaller than pictures make her out to be, full grown at only about 35 pounds! She’s around two years old and we suspect her to be a Staffordshire Terrier mix. She’d be a great companion for chillin’ on a restaurant patio or at your feet at a coffee shop. If you would like to meet this spunky, angelic little girl please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have the good folks from The Kentucky Humane Society who will be bringing Lexi with them today. Here’s more about her:
Lexi is a sweet, fun-loving Pit Bull Terrier mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society in search of a forever home. This beautiful girl is very special. She has a seizure disorder that will require that she take medication the rest of her life. As long as she stays on this medicine, though, her seizures have been under control. Lexi loves people and both dogs and cats. She likes to play in bursts, but her favorite thing to do is snuggle up with her human in bed or on the couch. To say that Lexi is a cuddle bug is an understatement. Lexi does well with a harness and knows some basic commands. She’s not really into walks and would much prefer to be mellow. Because of her special needs, she needs a special person who can understand and love her as she is. Could that be you? Lexi is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Since Lexi thrives being in a home, she is going to stay with her foster family until her forever person comes along. To meet Lexi or learn more about her, email email@example.com or call 502-366-3355 ext 2260. To view all adoptable animals at KHS, visit www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Looking for pure sweetness and joy? Don’t let Mamma Fratelli’s name fool you! This three-month-old white-and-tabby kitty is nothing like her namesake from The Goonies. Instead, she is inquisitive, playful and lots of fun! She loves to play – especially pouncing games – and gets along well with other kitties too. Mamma Fratelli is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Visit her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville KY. View all adoptable pets online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Meet Largo, a one-year-old tortoiseshell kitty who was rescued from cruelty and neglect by Animal Rescue Corps during their “Operation Dog Days of Summer” in early August. She was one of 170 animals found living in squalor without adequate food, water or shelter on a puppy mill in northern Mississippi just south of Memphis. When she was found, Largo was riddled with intestinal parasites and was very underweight. Since being rescued, she has received medical treatment and is gaining weight at the Kentucky Humane Society. She is also enjoying receiving attention from KHS staff and volunteers. But what she really wants is a loving home of her own – something she has never had before. Can you help Largo forget about her sad past and teach her that people can be kind and good? Largo is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Visit Largo at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville KY. View all our adoptable animals at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 to learn more.
