Spot: The Paws Report, July 26

Spot

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Despite his smiles, this senior Dalmatian has a sad story to tell. You see, for 14 years Spot was a beloved family member. He had an owner who loved him deeply and a grandson to play with. He was a faithful, affectionate dog who never left his owner’s side. He grew old with his owner, and he loved nothing more than to follow her from room to room and to go on walks with her. Tragically, Spot’s world turned upside down in February. His owner lost her battle with cancer, and he was left alone. The person whom he loved more than anything else in the world and with whom he expected to spend his last days was suddenly gone. He went from room to room, looking for her. He didn’t understand where she went. Slowly, he realized that she was not coming back. His owner’s tragic death set in motion a chain of events that led to Spot being abandoned on a family friend’s patio. For months, this faithful friend took care of Spot. But this friend had two energetic dogs of her own, and Spot, being older and wanting just a quiet place to snooze, did not like sharing a home with two playful, younger dogs. So Spot came to the Kentucky Humane Society. This affectionate dog is now looking for a family who will see past his age and accept him for who he is: a faithful, loving dog who still has lots of love and smiles to give. Could you be the person he’s looking for? Spot is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. All he needs is a soft bed, a loving hand, and a place to spend the rest of his days.

Chloe: The Paws Report, July 12

Chloe

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Looking for a loving family dog to be your loyal friend to the end? Meet Chloe! This beautiful, two-year-old Australian Shepherd mix is sweet as pie and she loves the company of other dogs. So if you already have a dog at home and are thinking of adding to your family, Chloe may be a great candidate! At the Kentucky Humane Society, Chloe is a bit on the shy side, so she is living in a foster home until she finds her perfect forever home. Her foster family reports that Chloe is house trained, crate trained, and knows basic commands like sit, down and stay, and she’s a quick learner. She also walks gently on a leash, so she’s a pleasure to walk, and she enjoys meeting children, adults and other dogs on her walks. In her foster home, she hasn’t been much of a barker, and she has slept quietly in her crate at night. Because Chloe can be shy, she’ll need a patient, loving family who can encourage her to gain confidence. We also think she would do best with another dog, as she takes her cues from other canines. If you are looking for a sweet and loving dog who picks up on things quickly, please contact Chloe’s foster family at 502-762-3729 to schedule a time to meet her. Chloe is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. View all the Kentucky Humane Society’s adoptable animals online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Today at 3:30 on The Paws Report:

Meet Hermione! Hermione is a four-month-old Pit Bull Terrier mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society when her owners could no longer care for her. Now she’s looking for a family to love for the rest of her days! According to her former owners, Hermione is a total goofball who loves to roll around in the grass and play with her many toys. She is learning to potty outside but still needs some guidance to become completely house-trained. While Hermione enjoys other dogs, because of her energy level she would do best with an active, tolerant canine. The best part about Hermione? She plays soccer! Her former owners say that she loves playing soccer with the kids and is very eager to learn new things. Do you have the time and energy to give this adorable girl the forever home she deserves? If so, come meet her today! Hermione is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Meet Hermione at the Kentucky Humane Society’s East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane, Louisville KY 40222. Visit www.kyhumane.org to view all adoptable animals or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

KHS is raising money for spay/neuter surgeries for big dogs at our SNIP Clinic through the “Big Dog Fix” campaign. We have a matching gift opportunity from “Henry and Roxy the Pit Bulls” – their parents are matching up to $5,000 to help us alter large dogs. Big dogs have it harder in shelters – they take up to 3x as long to get adopted as small dogs – and they have large litters (often 10-15 puppies), adding to the pet overpopulation problem. Read more here.

Also, we are in great need for kitten milk replacer (KMR) and wet kitten food for our fosters. Folks who want to donate can drop these off at any KHS location.

Now that she’s back at the shelter, she’s ready to find a family of her very own. Candy is a playful girl who loves attention, toys and spending time with her many friends here at the shelter. Do you have what it takes to be this girl’s new best friend? Candy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations.

Need a laugh after a hard day? A friendly face to help ease your troubles? Well then you must meet Rider! Rider is a three-month-old Tabby mix who will you keep you laughing all day long. He came to the Kentucky Humane Society at just six weeks old when he was found inside the engine of a car. Luckily for Rider, he sustained no injuries during his travels and the lovely shelter staff sent him into a foster home where he was able to socialize and develop with other kittens. Now that he’s back at the shelter, Rider can’t wait to find a forever home! Rider may run around the house at all hours, climb your drapes, and knock things over, but that’s only because he’s full of energy and curiosity. With love and patience, he’ll grow up to be a faithful feline and love you forever! Do you have the time and love for a cool cat like Rider? Rider is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Meet Rider at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville Ky 40214.

KHS is currently out of wet cat food. We use wet cat food to help wean our kittens from their mother’s milk onto solid food so we are in need of donations. We’re also struggling to find fosters for the large number of kittens that have been turned in so please check out our Foster Care Program. Thanks.

Idella: The Paws Report, June 28

Idella

Today on the Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet seven-year-old Idella, a gorgeous, full-figured gal in need of some love. This cat-nip crazy feline came to the Kentucky Humane Society in April when a family member became allergic to her, and she has been looking for a kind family to love ever since. Idella is a playful girl who loves, loves, loves toys! Give her a noisy toy to chase and she’ll be your best friend in no time. While Idella has tested positive for FIV, that doesn’t mean she can’t live a healthy, normal life. Her status does mean she should be either the only cat in the home or she should live with other cats who are also FIV positive. If you are looking for a lover of a cat, please come pay our Idella a visit. We know she’d love to see you! Idella is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations.
