Roscoe: The Paws Report, Sept. 3

roscoe

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30pm – Roscoe is a gorgeous 10-year-old Borzoi/Greyhound mix with a great sense of humor and a zest for life who is looking for a comfy retirement home. When he arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society, Roscoe had health issues that required investigation: he was highly stressed, had very labored breathing and even passed out once on a hot day. There were days we didn’t think Roscoe would make it; we decided to place him in a foster home to get him out of the shelter. As soon as he was in a home, Roscoe’s wonderful personality became evident, and his body immediately relaxed; suddenly, the dog who was so shut down in the shelter was a happy, silly dog with a great sense of adventure. In a home, Roscoe no longer felt alone, unloved and abandoned – he had hope. Although Roscoe still has breathing issues, they are controlled by making sure Roscoe stays inside during the heat of the day and that he only goes for short walks when it is cool out. A visit to a medical specialist determined he has a paralyzed larynx, which means Roscoe is unable to control the flaps in the back of his throat to regulate breathing. Roscoe is an optimistic, happy dog. He loves meeting new people, new dogs and cats, and he is great with kids. Roscoe loves going outside for short walks and to watch nature. He definitely has sighthound characteristics: he loves to watch squirrels and birds, and notices everything around him. Roscoe is not on any medications, and really, all he needs is a home to live out his remaining years in peace and happiness. If you have room in your heart for a senior dog, please meet Roscoe. His unique personality and beauty will charm you, and his sense of humor will keep you laughing. Roscoe is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Learn more about Roscoe and all the adoptable dogs and cats at the Kentucky Humane Society at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.

Moose: The Paws Report, August 20

Today at 3:30pm on The Paws Report:

Moose is a gorgeous two-year-old solid gray cat who came to the Kentucky Humane Society with his “girlfriend” and their four kittens; they were surrendered by their owner, who had too many animals to care for. Now all are spayed and neutered (thank goodness!), and all are ready for adoption. Moose is a gregarious, social kitty who is often the first cat to greet a new visitor at the Cat Colony Room. He will confidently jump up into the newcomer’s lap and give a “head butt” to show his appreciation for the visit. Although his name makes him sound like a large kitty, he’s really a medium-sized cat at nine pounds. Got cats at home? No problem! Moose gets along with other felines. If you are looking for a cool cat, meet Moose. He is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Visit him at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville. View all adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Also, KHS and LMAS are offering a joint adoption special Thursday-Sunday, Aug 21-24. Learn more at http://www.kyhumane.org/aug-2014-special.

Tank: The Paws Report, August 13

On The Paws Report today at 3:30pm:
One-year-old Tank is a loving boy who is looking for a forever home. This sweet pit bull terrier loves people, and is eager to please. He is looking for a family who would take him for long walks to keep him occupied and burn off some of the energy he has. He’d love to train with his adopter. Training is fun, and it would be a great way to bond. Plus, Tank would love a chance to make you proud. Tank gets very excited when he meets new dogs, so we strongly recommend that he meet any dogs currently in the household to see how everyone gets along. Do you have time and energy to a loving boy like Tank? He’s neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come meet him today 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.

Bristol: The Paws Report, Aug. 6

Bristol

Today at 3:30pm, meet Bristol, a three-month-old pointer mix. Bristol is a ball of puppy energy, who loves nothing more than to play. Toys are fun, but playing with people is the best! Bristol could spend hours chasing along behind you or playing tug of war. Because she is a puppy, Bristol will need a person with patience and understanding to give her the guidance she needs to blossom into the great dog we all know she can become. Bristol is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Come meet her today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. For more on Bristol or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit www.kyhumane.org.

Amanda: The Paws Report, July 23

Today at 3:30pm for The Paws Report:

Amanda is a four-year-old Chihuahua who came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded municipal shelter. Amanda is a total sweetheart: she is easy going and low key. Amanda finds being at the shelter stressful, and she’s hoping she will get to go to her forever home soon. Amanda arrived at KHS with an injury to her back right paw: one of the bones in her foot was broken. Amanda’s foot is healing, but she will need to be on leash walks only and no rough play for a few weeks in her new home. If you are looking for a special small dog to share your life with, please spend some time getting to know Amanda. She has a lot of love to give. Meet Amanda 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.
