Two-month-old Bingley is an adorable, black and white Domestic Shorthair mix. Bingley arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society in January after a kind stranger found him roaming the cold streets at just three weeks old. Soon after arriving at KHS, we sent Bingley into a foster home where he was able to receive the love and care he desperately needed. Now Bingley is back from foster care and this sweet boy is ready to find his forever home and family! Like most kittens, Bingley is full of energy. He loves to run and play with his staff friends here at the shelter and only stops for the occasional chin scratch. Do you have the time and desire to teach this little kitten a lesson in love? Bingley is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Come visit Bingley today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.

The Paws Report has moved to Tuesdays at 3:30pm! Wednesdays were proving to be too busy with Winter and Waterfront Wednesday shows and lots of guests which often meant we had to cancel the feature that day. We hated to miss the Paws Report and feel this way we won’t have to! Here’s the star for today’s Paws Report:
Seven-year-old Harry is an adorable Pomeranian mix who’s had a traumatic start in life. Harry arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society in early January after being rescued by Animal Rescue Corps from neglect and abuse. When he made his debut, Harry was in rough shape. He was missing several patches of hair, had internal and external parasites, and a bad cold from being kept in poor conditions. After two months in foster care, Harry is feeling better than ever and ready to find his forever home! Harry is a sweet gentleman who loves going on walks, wearing sweaters and sitting in his human’s lap. This goofy senior will keep you laughing all day with his tap-shoe like feet and his hilarious expressions. If a handsome and silly companion is what you’re after then look no further than Harry! Harry is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Come visit Harry today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.

Meet Puck, a regal long-haired cat with handsome charcoal-gray and white fur. Puck came to the Kentucky Humane Society severely matted, so our veterinary team had to shave his tangled fur. But he’ll be absolutely beautiful when his fur grows up. Puck is very affectionate and interested in people. But he does not like dogs at all and is not a fan of cats either. If you are looking for a solo kitty to rule your heart, you must meet the stately Puck. He’s so handsome and affectionate that you won’t miss having another animal. Puck is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet him at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.

Meet Sadie, a gentle 10-year-old Beagle with a lot of love to give. She came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter in 2015 and was adopted; she was returned to KHS recently when her family could no longer take care of her. Now she is searching for a family to call her very own. Like most Beagles, Sadie loves the outdoors; sunbathing is her specialty. She will stretch out in the grass and stare deeply into your eyes while you pet her. Sadie walks well on a leash, never straying too far from her human companion, and will come to you when you call for her. Sadie is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. If you’re looking for a calm companion to spend your days with, come meet Sadie at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.

Today on the Paws Report at 3:30 meet Samson and Gregory and brace yourself for serious cuteness overload! Listen too, for the heartwarming story that could have been more tragic were it not for an unlikely hero:
February 10, 2016, was no normal day for a Louisville garbage collector. Working his route on this freezing morning, he saw what he thought was a bin of stuffed toys. But what Gregory Curry (pictured below) of Rumpke Waste & Recycling discovered was heartbreaking. Four young puppies had been left to die in a plastic bin next to the dumpster in subzero temperatures – thrown away like they were garbage. Sadly, two of the puppies did not survive. The two living puppies were soaked in urine, shaking and clearly distressed. Gregory quickly scooped up the helpless puppies and put them in the cab of his truck, working to warm their small, cold bodies. Knowing they would need special care, he brought them to the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus in South Louisville.
Our veterinarian team immediately went to work: the seven-week-old Shepherd mixes received medical examinations, food, water, baths and of course a warm, soft place to rest. We alerted the authorities so they could investigate this heartless act. In honor of the man who saved them, the little brown puppy was named Gregory. We named the black puppy Samson. After a week of care, the puppies are now ready for adoption. If you are interested in learning how to adopt either of these puppies, visit www.kyhumane.org/samson-gregory.
While there has been tremendous interest in Gregory and Samson, we remind people that there are many wonderful puppies, dogs, kittens and cats looking for their forever homes at the Kentucky Humane Society and other local shelters and rescues. KHS receives new animals every day of the week. Within the next two weeks, KHS is expecting over 30 puppies from other shelters who will be looking for families to love them. Our hope is that Gregory and Samson help other animals find wonderful families too.
