Today on the Paws Report at 3:30pm, meet Selma:
Eight-year-old Selma is a Jack Russell terrier mix who loves people. She likes to run around and investigate outside, and she will gallop toward you when you call her by name. Selma appears to like other dogs and enjoys watching people. She’s a laid back girl who loves basking in the sun. Selma prefers to play with people than to play with toys, and she loves getting pets most of all. However, Selma has no trouble entertaining herself and will not need attention all the time. She appears to be the perfect mix of energy and easy going attitude that will make Selma great both for short walks and sitting around watching TV. Selma enjoys treats and appears to be food-motivated, so she may be up for learning some tricks with the right treat. Selma has been spayed, micro-chipped and is up-to-date on her vaccinations. Come meet her today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. For more on Selma or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit kyhumane.org.

Chester is a 10-year-old Beagle mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society because his owner could no longer care for him. At KHS, he had two fatty tumors removed, but both were benign. Chester really misses being in a home. He is a very chill dog who is curious and independent – he doesn’t demand a whole lot – just a soft bed, walks and treats. He does well on a leash and has become a favorite of the KHS volunteers. Chester is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all his vaccinations. Meet Chester 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.

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30pm – Roscoe is a gorgeous 10-year-old Borzoi/Greyhound mix with a great sense of humor and a zest for life who is looking for a comfy retirement home. When he arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society, Roscoe had health issues that required investigation: he was highly stressed, had very labored breathing and even passed out once on a hot day. There were days we didn’t think Roscoe would make it; we decided to place him in a foster home to get him out of the shelter. As soon as he was in a home, Roscoe’s wonderful personality became evident, and his body immediately relaxed; suddenly, the dog who was so shut down in the shelter was a happy, silly dog with a great sense of adventure. In a home, Roscoe no longer felt alone, unloved and abandoned – he had hope. Although Roscoe still has breathing issues, they are controlled by making sure Roscoe stays inside during the heat of the day and that he only goes for short walks when it is cool out. A visit to a medical specialist determined he has a paralyzed larynx, which means Roscoe is unable to control the flaps in the back of his throat to regulate breathing. Roscoe is an optimistic, happy dog. He loves meeting new people, new dogs and cats, and he is great with kids. Roscoe loves going outside for short walks and to watch nature. He definitely has sighthound characteristics: he loves to watch squirrels and birds, and notices everything around him. Roscoe is not on any medications, and really, all he needs is a home to live out his remaining years in peace and happiness. If you have room in your heart for a senior dog, please meet Roscoe. His unique personality and beauty will charm you, and his sense of humor will keep you laughing. Roscoe is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Learn more about Roscoe and all the adoptable dogs and cats at the Kentucky Humane Society at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.
Today at 3:30pm on The Paws Report:
Moose is a gorgeous two-year-old solid gray cat who came to the Kentucky Humane Society with his “girlfriend” and their four kittens; they were surrendered by their owner, who had too many animals to care for. Now all are spayed and neutered (thank goodness!), and all are ready for adoption. Moose is a gregarious, social kitty who is often the first cat to greet a new visitor at the Cat Colony Room. He will confidently jump up into the newcomer’s lap and give a “head butt” to show his appreciation for the visit. Although his name makes him sound like a large kitty, he’s really a medium-sized cat at nine pounds. Got cats at home? No problem! Moose gets along with other felines. If you are looking for a cool cat, meet Moose. He is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Visit him at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville. View all adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
