Three-year-old Holly is a sweet and silly Jack Russell Terrier mix looking for a family to call her own. Holly made her way to the Kentucky Humane Society in December, after transferring from an overcrowded shelter with no room for her. 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? If so, come meet Holly today! Holly is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Come visit her today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello friends, meet Dinah, a fun-loving, four-year-old Border Collie/Lab mix with quite the personality. Dinah made her way to the Kentucky Humane Society when a kind stranger found her roaming the cold streets in December of 2014. The staff have learned all about Dinah’s little quirks and personality traits since she first made her debut, and everyone loves her! When you first meet Dinah, she’ll be bursting with energy! Unable to control how very excited she is to meet a new friend. She might even grab a tennis ball and bring it to you, but don’t be fooled, you’ll have to move quickly to get it! Dinah also LOVES training! She dreams of finding a loving home with someone who will continue teaching her manners and other fun tricks. Once she’s comfortable with you and settled down, Dinah transforms into the biggest snuggle bug on the planet. She loves to rest her head on her humans because they make excellent pillows!
