Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet Bella, a goofy eight-month-old Pit Bull Terrier mix with big soulful eyes and a habitual frown. Despite her comical physical traits, Bella is a happy girl who loves long walks, playing fetch and cuddling up beside her human friends. This sweet and shy puppy arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society when a nice family found her roaming the streets. Bella was suffering from Demodectic mange, a skin issue that is not contagious to other pets or people. While the family loved Bella very much, due to size restrictions in their apartment, they decided to surrender Bella to the Kentucky Humane Society so we could treat her condition and find her a loving home where she can run and stretch her legs. According to her former family, Bella is a smart girl who loves to learn new things. At the shelter, she’s already mastered sit, down, stay and will even play fetch. All in all, Bella is a sweet and active dog looking for a family she can settle down with. She has lived with other dogs as well as cats, and seems to do very well with both. Bella is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Do you have room in your home and life for this adorable girl? If so, come fall in love with her today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.

Three-year-old Holly is a sweet and silly Jack Russell Terrier mix looking for a family to call her own.

Since arriving, Holly has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite! She’s an adorable goofball who loves giving kisses, receiving pets and going for long walks with her human companions. Holly is a petite girl who weighs less than twenty pounds, which is great because she loves to sit in her human’s lap! Do you have the time and desire to teach this young pup some new tricks?

The PEDIGREE Foundation recently awarded KHS an Innovation Grant for our new PROUD training program. PROUD (Patriot Rehabilitation of Untrained Dogs) is a foster-based program that pairs veterans and active military personnel and their families with shelter dogs that exhibit behavioral issues that can make them more challenging to adopt. We are currently seeking veterans, active duty military, reservists and National Guard members, military dependents and Gold Star Families to join PROUD. KHS provides all basic supplies; military handlers provide a temporary home, training, structure and love. The first PROUD orientation is Wednesday, January 13.

Izzy Belle: The Paws Report, Dec. 16

????????????????????????????????????

Today on the Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet Izzy Belle, an adorable three-month-old Chihuahua-Yorkie mix. Izzy came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an animal rescue group in Eastern Kentucky. She was very, very sick when she arrived at our doors, and we weren’t sure if this tiny puppy would survive. But she received excellent veterinary care and proved herself to be a fighter, despite her itty-bitty size. After Izzy recovered from her grave illness, a caring Kentucky Humane Society employee took her home to foster her. Izzy lived with cats and enjoyed playing with them (but not always to the cats’ delight). Now Izzy is ready to be adopted. She’s looking for a loving home that will continue to love and spoil her. If you are looking for a bright, curious, wiggly little dog, you must meet Izzy. Izzy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Shiloh: The Paws Report, Dec. 9

Shiloh

Today at 3:30 on The Paws Report:

Meet Shiloh, a handsome, interactive orange kitty who came to the Kentucky Humane Society along with 12 other cats. His owner realized she had too many cats and arranged to bring many of them to our doors. This sweet seven-year-old cat is a staff and volunteer favorite: he loves to greet people and make “biscuits.” Shiloh, like three of the other cats from his previous home, tested positive for FIV. Many FIV positive cats live healthy, normal lives. But his status means he should be either the only cat in his new home or he should live with other cats who are FIV positive. If you are looking for a lover of a cat, don’t let Shiloh’s FIV status scare you away: he will reward you with unconditional love from the biggest of feline hearts. Shiloh is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Visit him at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

This weekend is the last Picture Your Pets with Santa at all Feeders Supply locations. Animals of all species and their humans are welcome! 100% of proceeds benefit KHS and the Floyd County Animal Rescue League.

Also, this Friday at Mercury Ballroom is Givin’ the Dog a Bone, a rock and roll benefit for the Kentucky Humane Society, featuring Thunderstruck, the ultimate AC/DC tribute band.

Cruz: The Paws Report, Dec. 2

Cruz

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet Cruz – a.k.a. “Sleepy Eyes.” Cruz is a six-year-old brown and white tabby, a true green-eyed soul cat deserving of a permanent home. He was found as a stray before transferring to the Kentucky Humane Society from another shelter. Somehow through it all, Cruz has retained his gentle spirit. Cruz’s future was uncertain after being diagnosed FIV+, but he can live a healthy life. He just shouldn’t live with other cats unless they are also FIV+. Cruz would love an easy going human who understands this and his subtle gestures, like purring for hugs, or staying in close proximity to affirm his affection and love. The only thing Cruz seems to love more than attention is treats. He gets so excited when he sees the treat bag that he’ll stick his entire head in it! Cruz is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Will you give this big-headed sweetheart a second chance at life? Come visit Cruz 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.
