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.

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.

Looking for a loving, social companion to keep you company? Meet Candy! Candy is a gorgeous, three-month-old Calico kitten looking for a forever home. She came to the Kentucky Humane Society when a kind stranger found her abandoned at just three weeks old. Knowing Candy would need around the clock care, we sent her into a foster home where she was able to grow and socialize with other kittens her age. 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. Meet Candy at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville Ky 40214. Visit www.kyhumane.org to view all adoptable animals or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
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.

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. Meet her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 214 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Meet easy-going Mateo, a four-year-old Shepherd mix. He is loving and inquisitive. He loves to go on walks and investigate the wide world. He also thinks of himself as a lap dog in spite of his size. Mateo came from an overcrowded shelter, so the staff are still learning all about him. What we can say is that he is a love-bug and a great friend who wants very much to find his forever home. Could it be with you? Mateo is 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.

Today at 3:30 for the Paws…I meant The Hooves Report, meet:
From the Kentucky Humane Society’s Equine CARE program we have two special guests on today’s Paws Report: Abner, an orphaned Thoroughbred foal, and Stevie, a special needs horse. They will stop by the station along with Bryce Gill, KHS Equine Development Manager. Abner and Stevie were both rescued by KHS’ Equine CARE program, which is dedicated to helping the state’s at-risk companion or recreational horses. Learn more about these horses and KHS’ newest animal program today at 3:30 p.m.
Abner is a Thoroughbred foal who was orphaned at birth in early February 2016 when his mother had severe birthing complications and was too weak and physically compromised to nurse her baby. The veterinarian called the Kentucky Humane Society’s Equine CARE (connect, assist, rescue, educate) Program to ask us to take the foal, since KHS has experience saving orphaned foals. At just two days old, Abner was very fragile when he arrived at KHS. He required round-the-clock feedings and care by our equine staff and volunteers. Abner was adopted by Mary Rose and Brett Cissell, who own Dark Horse Training Center in Shelbyville; Mary Rose is an experienced horse trainer, and many of our horses are trained by Mary Rose to ready them for adoption.
Stevie is a special needs adult horse. She has an insulin disorder so she cannot eat regular grass. She was also recently adopted.
The Kentucky Humane Society’s Equine CARE program is dedicated to helping Kentucky’s at-risk companion or recreational horses regardless of breed – those who typically don’t have advocates. We help horses in crisis, such as orphaned foals like Abner, and special needs horses like Stevie. We also assist at-risk free-roaming horses in Eastern Kentucky and offer free gelding clinics to help reduce the number of unwanted horses. This spring KHS opened the KHS Equine CARE Rescue Barn, where many of our horses are cared for.
People can learn more about our Equine CARE program at www.kyhumane.org/horses or by following us on facebook, www.facebook.com/khsequine.
Today at 3:30 for The Paws Report:
Meet Shiloh, a pretty one-year-old kitty with unusual ears. Shiloh’s fur is almost all white except for a bit of gray on the top of her head. This sweetheart with yellow-green eyes came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter. When she arrived at our doors in April, her ears were quite infected – something we think she may have suffered from for a long time, as the shape of her ears are a bit unusual. (We affectionately think she looks a bit like Dr. Spock!) At KHS, our veterinary team treated her ears, and they look so much better! She’s definitely a happier cat now too, and she enjoys meeting new people and snuggling. Shiloh is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Meet Shiloh at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus at 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
KHS currently has 273 kittens and mama cats in foster care right now, and more are coming in! People interested in becoming foster caregivers should contact Kayla Saylor, or foster coordinator, at email@example.com or 502-366-3355 ext. 2260. KHS provides all the necessary supplies and training. Once the kittens are old enough for adoption (usually 2-4 weeks), they (and their moms) come back to KHS to be spayed/neutered and placed for adoption.
In addition, June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month; we are offering $10 adoptions on select cats the entire month. This is done in partnership with Best Friends Animal Society. LMAS is also offering the same adoption special all month long.
