6-8am: American Routes With Nick Spitzer
Easter weekend is a time for reflection and family, and our guests certainly fit the bill. Donald Harrison, Jr. is a saxophone player and New Orleans native now based in New York. Harrison’s ties to New Orleans run deep, musically and culturally. His work has long echoed strains of Mardi Gras Indian chants and street beats – not surprisingly as his late father was Big Chief of the Guardians of the Flame tribe, a position Donald Jr. has since assumed. Wendell and Sherman Holmes, plus longtime friend Popsy Dixon make up the Holmes Brothers, a vocal group best known for putting their personal stamp on blues, gospel, country, pop and more. The brothers join us to talk about the transition from Christ Church, Virginia to New York and back again to home and family.

The Star of The Paws Report today at 3:30pm:
Are you looking for a smart, loving companion to share life’s adventures and laughs with? Then you need to meet happy, smiley, playful Elizabeth, a black standard poodle with a great sense of humor and a zest for life. Want a dog to teach new tricks to? Or looking for a canine agility dog? Or want a companion who loves to go for walks? Or looking for someone to play ball with? Elizabeth could be the perfect dog for you! After a fun romp with you, Elizabeth will quickly settle down next to you and take a snooze. Elizabeth likes cats a bit too much for their comfort level (so a home without cats would be best), and she does OK with other dogs as long as they understand she’s the queen bee. Currently, Elizabeth lives in a foster home with another dog. If you do have another dog at home, we’ll require a “meet and greet” to make sure they get along. Like many poodles, Elizabeth may be just a bit shy around new people – but she quickly warms up and is ready to make friends. If you would like to learn more, contact Elizabeth’s foster parent. Learn more at the Kentucky Humane Society’s website, www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355. Elizabeth: Paws Report 4/16/14 by WFPK
Today at 3:30pm meet Leonard, a handsome orange-and-white cat who is about three years old. Leonard came to the Kentucky Humane Society as a stray, and he is patiently awaiting his forever home. This guy is not only beautiful, but he is also a total lover! He enjoys affection from his human friends and would be in heaven if you could just spend your whole day devoted to loving on him. While Leonard knows that a 24/7 cuddle session may not be feasible, he will gladly accept a nice tall perch to settle down on while you’re away. He really likes being up high, taking in the sights and sounds of all that surround him. Leonard gets along well with the other kitties in the KHS East Campus cat colony room. He is neutered, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet this sweetheart at the Kentucky Humane Society’s East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane, Louisville. View all adoptable cats and dogs at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
Today at 3:30pm on The Paws Report meet Ivan, a handsome eight year old pit bull terrier. Sadly, Ivan came to the Kentucky Humane Society because his family lost their home. His previous owners described Ivan as the perfect family dog, as he loves everyone: kids, cats and other dogs. Ivan is a very well mannered gentleman, and he even knows basic commands. Ivan is house and crate trained – really, he’s the perfect dog! Ivan is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Come meet this distinguished dog at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville.

Today on the Paws Report at 3:30pm we have Junior with his siblings Hercules and Smokey, nine-week-old kittens who came to the Kentucky Humane Society. Their owner was unable to afford to take care of them, so she brought them to KHS to be neutered and adopted. Junior is a bold, hilarious little guy who loves to pounce and play with his brothers. Junior will be available for adoption at North Shore Animal Rescue League’s Tour For Life on Friday, March 28, 1-6 p.m., at Westport Village in Louisville. Adoptable puppies, dogs, kittens and cats from KHS, Louisville Metro Animal Services, Derby City Dog Rescue, Tyson’s Chance Animal Foundation, Hand-In-Paw Rescue, and Saved by the Bell Bully Rescue will be at the event looking for homes. Westport Village is located at Lyndon Lane and Herr. Learn more at www.kyhumane.org/tour-for-life-2014 or call 502-366-3355.
One-year-old Jazzy came to the Kentucky Humane Society in September 2013 along with her four newborn babies and an orphan that she adopted and raised as her own. She spent time in foster care while raising the kittens, where she quickly settled in and got down to the business of raising a family. Her kittens are on their own now and, happily, have all been adopted so Jazzy is ready for a home of her own. Jazzy is a sweet, affectionate and easy-going cat. She would be perfect for just about any home. She likes to play but also loves to lie quietly next to you and lull you to sleep with her gentle purring. If you’re looking for a furry companion who is sweet, gentle and affectionate with just the right amount of energy, Jazzy is the girl for you! She is spayed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccinations and ready to go home. Come meet Jazzy at our East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane. For more on Jazzy or any of our adoptable pets, call 502-366-3355 or visit www.kyhumane.org.

There will be games, entertainment for the children and refreshments.
