Looking for the love of your life? A companion to greet you when you come home and cuddle with on the couch? Meet Harley! Two-year-old Harley is a sweet and adorable hound mix who can’t wait to meet you. This goofy girl came to the Kentucky Humane Society recently from an overcrowded shelter and has since been looking for the perfect family to spend her days with. Harley is a playful pup who loves going for long walks, exploring the great outdoors and playing fetch with her friends at the shelter. While she’s a hound mix who loves to sniff and explore, Harley does well on a leash and never strays far from her people. She loves toys, treats and has mastered the art of “puppy dog eyes.” Do you have the time and love to give this charming girl the forever home she deserves? If so, come meet her today. Harley is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Meet Harley at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville KY 40214.

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet Ajax, a super affectionate eight-month-old tuxedo cat who is looking for his forever home. His previous owner describes Ajax as a very friendly, outgoing, affectionate, athletic and playful cat. This kitty has a real zest for life: want to play hide and seek or pounce? Ajax is game! How about playing with a feather fishing pole or a toy mouse? Nothing would make Ajax happier than interacting with you! In his previous home, Ajax lived with children and teens, and he was friendly and outgoing with new people. Ajax also appears to like other cats too, and in his former home he lived with another cat; the two spent time grooming each other and playing together. All in all, Ajax is one fun cat! He is also neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet Ajax at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville Ky 40214.

KHS is waiving adoption fees on cats ages 1 year and older April 27-30. They’ve taken in a LOT of cats from other shelters in the last week, which is wonderful news for these animals, as often in rural shelters there are NO adopters for adult cats. We’re excited to find these cats great homes!

Also, the first “Dog Day at the Park” of the season is next Tuesday, May 3: dogs and their people are invited to attend a Louisville Bats game at Slugger Field. 100% of the price of admission for each dog is a donation to KHS. Here is more info.

Biscuit: The Paws Report, March 29

Biscuit

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet one-year-old Biscuit, a stunning gray and white Tabby who loves to give kisses. If you hold him, he is going to snuggle up to you and kiss your neck. That little boy is never happier than when he’s in your arms, and who can resist such a lover? Biscuit walks a little differently than other cats. His back legs are a little “wonky.” The veterinarian thinks it may be an old injury or something he’s always had, but doesn’t think it interferes with Biscuit’s life. Would you give this little lover a home to call his own and a person or two to love with all his heart? 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 animals online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Bella: The Paws Report, April 5

Bella

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet Bella, a gorgeous and sweet Australian Shepherd with a ready smile and a gentle tail wag. Bella is approximately 9 years old and is living in a foster home. Her foster family says Bella is very easy going: she is house trained, crate trained and pretty quiet; she barks occasionally when she sees another dog or someone comes to the door, but other than that she is not much of a talker. This mature girl loves to be by the side of her foster family; ready to read a book or watch TV? Bella is happy to keep you company. Need a supervisor in the kitchen? Count on Bella to sit nearby and smile approvingly.

We wish we knew more of Bella’s past. We do know that years ago, she had an owner her loved her very much: enough to have expensive surgery to mend a broken bone on her back left leg near her hip. But over the years, the surgical wire that was used to mend her bones began to unravel: an x-ray showed that the wire was frayed and was poking into her thigh muscles. This caused pain and resulted in Bella not using her leg, causing it to atrophy. Years after her initial leg surgery, she was found as a stray. How she went from a beloved companion to a stray, we’ll never know. Thankfully for her, a kind couple found her and took her in. In their home, she lived with children, teens and cats; her family reported she did well with the children and cats. The family decided they didn’t have the time or resources to care for Bella. Wanting to give Bella a second chance, they surrendered her to the Kentucky Humane Society. At KHS, we performed surgery to remove her unused leg. It was a tough surgery, lasting over two hours. It took Bella weeks to recuperate, and she was placed in a foster home to heal. Now that Bella is feeling better, she is a happy, contented dog who loves meeting new people and going outside to explore. Bella also does well with the other dog in the house.

Bella is still re-cooperating from the loss of her leg. She walks on her own and goes outside to potty, but she needs a little help getting up the stairs. For longer walks, her foster family uses a support sling; this velcros around her waist and has handles. With the sling, Bella very happily goes for walks around the block with the other dog in the family. She is slowly gaining strength. To help her with pain management, Bella is on medication, and we recommend she continue on medications in her forever home. If you are looking for an easy going, sweet, loving and beautiful dog, please contact Bella’s foster family through KHS to arrange a time to meet her. View all adoptable animals at the Kentucky Humane Society at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.

Also:

· KHS is full on large dogs and is having an adoption special: $40 to adopt a dog 40 pounds or more through Sunday, April 10.

· Waggin’ Trail is coming up on May 21. It’s not too early to register and start fundraising for the animals.

Looking for a cat who’s overcome tremendous odds? Meet Dude! One-year-old Dude is a gorgeous, orange tabby who came to the Kentucky Humane Society when a kind man found him roaming the streets with an injured leg. We discovered his right front leg had a dislocated Radial/Carpal joint that left him unable to use it and that would require amputation. After spending a few weeks in a foster home healing, Dude is better than ever and ready to find his forever home! Despite having only three legs, there’s no challenge Dude cannot overcome. He’s a young, playful cat who loves running and chasing after his many toys here at the shelter. After he’s done playing, Dude is a big cuddle bug who wants to crawl on your lap to take a long afternoon nap. He’s an affectionate cat and will even let you cradle him like a baby! Do you have enough love and time for this beautiful boy? Dude is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Come visit Dude 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.
