Today at 3:30 for The Paws Report:
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.

Meet Biscuit, an enchanting, two-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix with the sweetest personality around. Biscuit made his way to the Kentucky Humane Society in May from an overcrowded shelter. Shortly after his arrival, we discovered that Biscuit’s ears were completely closed off and calloused over from what appeared to be multiple untreated ear infections. Heartbroken for the sweet dog, we made appointments with veterinarians all over town to see if anything could be done to save Biscuit’s ears. Luckily for Biscuit, it was revealed that his ear issues actually stemmed from bad allergies, and surgery wouldn’t be necessary to repair his ears! After some TLC, a new diet and medication, Biscuit’s ears have improved dramatically, and he is ready to find his forever home. During his time in the shelter, Biscuit has won the hearts of staff, campers and volunteers alike. Despite his hardships. He maintains his happy-go-lucky spirit and greets everyone he meets with a tail wag and soft kiss on the cheek. While he will require a special adopter who’s able to keep him on his diet and take him to the veterinarian for regular check-ups and ear cleaning, Biscuit remains optimistic. If you’re looking for a companion who will be loyal until the very end, come meet Biscuit! He 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.

Meet Piper! A gorgeous, Golden Retriever mix with warm, brown eyes and a gentle soul. Three-year-old Piper came to the Kentucky Humane Society in June with her seven, four-week-old pups. Soon after arrival, Piper’s pups were weaned and went into foster care, while Piper began her search for her forever home. Sweet Piper is a favorite with almost everyone in the shelter. She greets staff, volunteers and campers with a tender hug each morning, putting her paws gently on their waist and laying her head down on their stomach. Piper is a total lover and doesn’t have much interest in toys and play, she just wants to be with her people. She loves taking long walks where she can explore the world from the safety of your side. Piper appears house trained and doesn’t seem to mind other dogs either! If you’re looking for a companion who will always wait up for you, come meet Piper! Piper is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Visit her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.

Today at 3:30 meet Bud:
Bud is a five-year-old Blue-Point Siamese mix. He has the softest coat and the most beautiful blue eyes. Bud loves people. He wants to be held, and if you will let him, he will drape himself across your shoulders and nuzzle your ear. Bud likes people so much that we’re not certain if he likes to play. Once you enter the cat colony, Bud is quick to visit and look at you with adoring eyes that beg you to hold him. Bud appears to get along with other cats, and would be happy, so long as he has a person who will love and cuddle him. Bud is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come meet this sweet boy today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. For more on Bud or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit kyhumane.org.
