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!

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.

Molly is a beautiful three-year-old golden-colored Labrador Retriever/Boxer mix. At 33 pounds, she’s the perfect size: not too big, not to small, Molly is just right! Molly came to the Kentucky Humane Society when her owner moved and could not take her along. When Molly first arrived at KHS, she was a bit distressed. She didn’t know why she was abandoned or if her owner was ever going to come back for her. When anyone walked by her cage, she waited expectantly, hoping it was her owner. As the days passed, Molly resigned herself to her new reality. She has learned to love the walks that Kentucky Humane Society volunteers give her every day, and she loves getting belly rubs and treats. But while Molly has learned to accept her time at KHS, she really misses being in a home. If you are considering adopting a furry friend, please come meet Molly. This sweetheart will worm her way into your heart! Molly is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Molly is at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
