November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month! Senior pets tend to take much longer to get adopted at the shelter than younger pets. We want to remind people that senior pets have many wonderful qualities and require less work than many younger animals. If we have time I also want to mention that if anyone’s struggling with a senior pet, we have a free Pet Help Line available!

Jacob is a sweet, loving Hound mix who would make an awesome family dog! This seven-month-old big puppy loves squeaky toys, playing fetch, going for walks and just hanging out with his human friends. On his walks, Jacob is happy to meet and greet everyone he sees, young and old. Jacob also loves the company of other dogs. Jacob has spent some time recently in a foster home, and he has be great about not having accidents in the house. At night he sleeps in a crate next to his foster family. He is so well behaved that sometimes his foster family forgets he’s only seven months old! Jacob is also a staff and volunteer favorite at the Kentucky Humane Society; we love how easy going, sweet and loving he is. Unfortunately for Jacob, he has spent half of his life in a shelter because of a health condition. You see, Jacob has Hemophilia, a blood disorder that makes it difficult for him to stop bleeding if he gets hurt. As a result, Jacob’s physical activity needs to be monitored and he will need ongoing vet care. Jacob is a special dog who will need a special family who can meet the challenges of his disease head-on. Could you be the one he’s waiting for? Jacob is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. If you wish to meet Jacob, call his foster parent at 502-762-3729 to learn more and to set up a time to meet this amazingly sweet dog.

Introducing the one, the only, Leo! Six-year-old Leo is a stunning, Turkish Angora mix with glowing green eyes and a solid white coat. He came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owners were no longer able to care for him; now he’s ready to find his forever home. The Turkish Angora breed is known for their long, silky fur that invites you to stroke them all day long. Leo would be so pleased if you would, too, because he absolutely loves attention! This sweet boy is a total chatterbox who meows to tell us how happy he is and remind us to pet him. Leo is also a gentleman! He plays very gently and will place his paw on your leg to give a warning before jumping into your lap. He has lived with children in his previous home and does well with children of all ages. He coexisted peacefully with the family dog, but can’t seem to find any common ground with cats. Because of this, he will need a home without other felines. Leo is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Do you have a place in your home for a classy cat like Leo? Come visit him today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Learn about all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.
KHS is having a free Gelding and Wellness Clinic for owned horses on Saturday, October 10th at the Prestonsburg Equine Center in Eastern KY. This is the third free Gelding Clinic we have implemented this year and it will provide free castration, vaccination and dental services to owned horses. We are hoping these gelding clinics will help provide population control measures in areas where stallions are running free and producing unwanted foals.
In other news, KHS recently took in two puppies from Western KY who are in horrible condition. The puppies are missing most of their fur due to Mange, are very underweight and very under socialized. They will need months of TLC to recover and we are asking the public to help us name these two pups, one a boy and one a girl.
Today on The Paws Report at 3:30 we have two special guests with The Ky. Humane Society as always and Kelsey Westbrook from Saving Sunny, Inc. to talk about this year’s Pitty Fair. We also have a puppy who needs fostering named Neptune. Below is Neptune’s story plus details on the Pitty Fair 2015.
Why should you foster shelter puppies? For the kisses! Venus is a five-week-old pit bull puppy who came to the Kentucky Humane Society along with her seven siblings (all named for planets) and their mom from an overcrowded shelter in Kentucky. Venus and her siblings are all weaned, and they will need temporary foster homes for about four weeks—until they are old enough to be spayed or neutered and adopted. KHS places 2-3 puppies in each volunteer foster home and provides all the supplies; all you need to provide is love! Many of our foster parents have other pets at home and work full-time; others are students or retirees who don’t want to commit to full-time to pet ownership. If you are interested in learning more about fostering, visit our website at www.kyhumane.org or email email@example.com, or call our main number at 502-366-3355. Fostering is rewarding and helps save lives!
Also, the 2015 Pitty Fair will take place this Saturday, Sept. 26 at St. Joseph’s Children’s Home on Frankfort Avenue from 11am-3pm. Details can be found on their facebook event page here – https://www.facebook.com/events/109791599375305/
