tank2

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.

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.

Yakey: The Paws Report, July 16

Yakey

Today at 3:30pm for The Paws Report:

Meet Yakey, a handsome, silly six-year-old Labrador Retriever mix. He came to the shelter because his owner could no longer take care of him. Being in the shelter is hard on Yakey, as he really misses being in a home. He adores everyone he meets and loves getting attention. Yakey knows how to sit and is good on a leash. He plays well with children of all ages. If you are looking for an older, good-natured dog, be sure to meet Yakey. Although he’s a little older, he still loves to run and play, but his favorite thing to do is hang out with his person. Yakey is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all his shots. Meet him at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. Visit www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

We will also discuss the Working Cats program. Lieh with Apocalypse Brew Works just adopted two Working Cats to keep mice away from the grains at the brewery. The Working Cats program finds homes for cats who don’t qualify for home adoption b/c of behavior issues. We find them suitable indoor/outdoor homes like horse barns, warehouses, and now breweries!

Matilda: The Paws Report, July 2

On The Paws Report today at 3:30pm:

Looking for the most easy going, sweetest little kitty on the planet? You must meet Matilda! This sweetheart was found as a stray along with her five kittens. Thankfully, they came to the Kentucky Humane Society, where they were all spayed or neutered and made ready for adoption. It’s hard to believe Matilda was a mom – she’s still so tiny herself. But Matilda is a good reminder that unspayed cats can reproduce as young as six months. We think Matilda is about 11 months old, so she may have a bit of growing to do. Matilda is an amazing cat. She loves people, loves other cats, and does great with dogs too! If you are thinking of adding a feline to your home, consider Matilda. She has a beautiful black and white coat and gorgeous light green eyes. She has the tiniest little meow too. Matilda is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. All she needs is you. For more info www.kyhumane.org.

Also, we have a $20 neuter-a-thon for male cats on Saturday, July 21. Includes a free rabies vaccination. This is a $32 savings over the normal low price for a neuter and rabies shot. (I know we can’t mention price though). Limited to the first 100 male cats signed up. Neutering is super important: it reduces issues like male cats spraying, fighting and running away. And of course it helps reduce the number of unwanted pets.
