On The Paws Report today at 3:30pm:
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.

Today at 3:30pm: Meet Roseo! This sweet 10-year-old miniature poodle mix came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owner could no longer care for him. Roseo is easy going in nature and would love to spend his days beside you, especially if he could spend time on your lap. He likes to lay his soft head on your lap and close his eyes in joy as you gently pet his head. Roseo loves a person’s touch and can spend forever getting his back rubbed. Roseo will need soft food to eat because he is lacking teeth. He would be a faithful companion to you for all his days, and he hopes you can see past his age and see the dog his is inside. Roseo is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come meet Roseo today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241, Steedly Drive. For more on Roseo or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit kyhumane.org.

Wrigley and Buddy are in search of a family who will adopt them together. These two dogs are best friends: in fact, they are a bonded pair. They lived in a home together and were turned in when their family could no longer take care of them. At KHS, it became clear immediately that they are very dependent on each other and are happiest when they are together. Wrigley is a gorgeous five-year-old tri-colored collie mix. He’s tall and leggy and loves to give polite kisses. Buddy is a three-year-old beagle/Labrador retriever mix who loves to snuggle. Both are laid back, loving dogs. If you are looking for a polite, quiet, well-behaved dog to fit in with your family, then why not adopt two? These dogs are so well behaved having both is no trouble at all. Both are neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet Wrigley and Buddy at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.
