Meet Big Boy, a six-year-old domestic shorthair cat with lovely black and white markings. Big Boy lives up to his name, he is a big kitty. But he figures that means there’s more to love. And he does love some loving. He’d like a chance to sit beside you on the couch while you stroke his cheek and scratch his back. Big Boy is a friendly soul, and will accept attention from your friends, but he wants you to know that you’ll be his BFF if you take him home. Because of a health condition, Big Boy would be best suited as the only cat in the house; however, he seems tolerant of dogs who give him his space. Big boy is a TOTAL ham and brings a smile to everyone he meets. His hobbies include sitting in any available box and running in circles while chasing his tail. Don’t let his size fool you, Big Boy is one agile kitty. He loves to jump and climb and dreams of having a tall fortress where he can look over his kingdom. If you’re looking for an affection kitty with a big heart, please consider Big Boy! Big Boy is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Visit him 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.
It’s national Adopt a Shelter Cat month! In honor of this we are pairing with LMAS and having a month long adoption special on Fridays for our adult cats called $5 Feline Fridays. During kitten season many adult cats are passed over because they can’t compete with fluffy, adorable kittens so our promotion is to try and encourage people to adopt older cats.
Kittens today for The Paws Report at 3:30 pm:
Keebler is a black-and-white tuxedo kitten who is almost four months old. Keebler is outgoing and loves to play with other cats, toys and human visitors. He was one of five kittens from the same litter who was brought to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owner had an unexpected litter. The Doctor is an orange female tabby who came to KHS with her four siblings and mother from Louisville Metro Animal Services. At KHS, the family spent time in foster care until the kittens were weaned and old enough to be adopted. Now The Doctor is ready for her own forever home. Keebler and The Doctor are available for adoption at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in south Louisville. They are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Learn more about all our pets at www.kyhumane.org or by calling 502-366-3355.
It’s officially kitten season: Let’s spay/neuter all those kitties! And we are in a real need of foster families to provide temporary homes for kittens, puppies, cats and dogs.
Also, two 4 week old kittens came to KHS on Sunday after they were found thrown from a car in Nelson County. The finder also saw 6 dead kittens on the road. The two surviving kittens were are now recovering at KHS and doing very well. Their names are Julep and Rye, as they were found on the Bourbon Trail very close to Heaven Hill Heritage Center. Horrific. Here is more info: http://www.whas11.com/story/news/local/community/2015/05/19/julep-and-rye-kittens-humane-society/27599085/

Meet Snoopy, a gorgeous, happy, silly two-year-old English Shepherd who always has a smile on his face. Snoopy is one smart cookie: he knows many basic commands, including sit, stay and lay down, and he walks great on a leash. Want to teach him tricks? Snoopy would be happy to learn! He also appears to be house trained. Snoopy does walk with a small limp, as a few months ago he had what is believed to be a Fibrocartilaginous Embolism (FCE). This is a blocked blood vessel in the spine, which can lead to immediate paralysis; some dogs recover fully, and some never recover. But Snoopy was a lucky dog: He regained his ability to walk, though he now has a slight limp. The good news is that veterinarians say FCE is not painful. He walks a little differently, but that’s just fine to Snoopy. We think it just makes him even more adorable! Snoopy would love to chase cats, so we recommend his new home not have any kitties. He can also be dog reactive, meaning he likes to bark and carry on around new dogs. So if you have a dog at home, we strongly recommend you bring your dog in to meet Snoopy before you make an adoption decision. Ready to meet Snoopy and see if he will be the next love of your life? Visit him 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.
Waggin’ Trail is this Saturday in Waterfront Park! We’ll have beer, wine, adoptable pets, lots of pet products, rescues, contests, including Best (dog) Kisser and even Animal Arts (dogs will create paintings).
Today at 3:30 for The Paws Report, meet sweet Janelle, a mellow ten-year-old spaniel/shepherd mix with a lot of love to offer. She came to the Kentucky Humane Society when her owner moved and was unable to take Janelle with her. Janelle misses being in a home very much and is ready to find someone who will love her forever. This laid-back lady loves to go on walks with the staff and volunteers. Give her a scratch on the back and she’s the happiest dog in the world! Janelle shared her last home with both a male and female dog, but she doesn’t care much for felines. According to her former owner, Janelle is housetrained, crate trained and does well when left unsupervised. Janelle has lived with children ranging from newborns to adults, and her prior owner says she’s been wonderful with all of them. This easy-going pooch is looking for someone to relax and spend her senior days with. Could it be you? Stop by the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus at 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville and let Janelle show you what you’re missing! Janelle is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Learn more about all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or 502-366-3355.
We will also talk about:
The “Dream Big” adoption special is all month long in May. Adoption fees for select big dogs are reduced (Janelle is part of this special). As you know, kennel space for big dogs is at a premium, and we are hoping to get some big dogs into great homes this month to help clear space for needy dogs as the summer months heat up and more big dogs will need our help.
And speaking of big dogs, we are trying to raise funds so we can offer even lower-cost spay/neuters at our SNIP Clinic to big dogs. A local couple who will match gifts dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 for our special “Big Dog Fix” fund, but the deadline is May 9 – this Saturday. Yikes! We are at $3,101 as of this morning. As you know, big dogs have big litters – often 10-15 puppies – so spaying and neutering is particularly important.

Snoopy appears to do well with children of all ages and lived with a dog and two frisky felines in his previous home. Come see what Snoopy is all about, you may just fall in love!
