We need your help! On Dec. 21, a water pipe froze and burst in the ceiling of our large dog kennel space at the Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville.
Rudy is a ten-year-old Chihuahua who came to the Kentucky Humane Society as a stray after being found roaming the streets by two kind strangers. When they discovered poor Rudy, he was weak, extremely emaciated and something appeared to be wrong with the senior Chihuahua’s eyes. Seeing how bad of condition the tiny dog was in, they offered him some soft food and a bowl of water to help him gain strength. Rudy drank the entire bowl of water but proceeded to vomit it up immediately. His new friends knew then that Rudy was in trouble, and they brought him to KHS in the hopes that we could help him.
The first time Bear saw his foster dad remove his belt, he ran screaming from the room, terrified. The four-pound Pomeranian cowered and trembled under a bed and would not come out for hours.
It was just one of many indications that this little dog had witnessed terrible abuse in his last home – and had been a victim of domestic violence himself.
Bravo, a three-month-old Hound/Retriever mix, is a sweet and happy boy who came to the Kentucky Humane Society looking for a forever home. When he first arrived at KHS, Bravo appeared like any normal, healthy puppy. He ate, he played, he wanted to be held and loved. It wasn’t until the morning of his neuter surgery that we discovered something was very wrong.
