Sir Davos came to the Kentucky Humane Society on July 5, after he suffered a terrible wound to his front right foot. His paw had been partially severed from his leg, leaving a gaping wound with bone sticking out.
Six-year-old Ziggy is a Great Pyrenees with quite a sad story to tell. Ziggy came to the Kentucky Humane Society after being rescued by Animal Rescue Corps from a hoarding/neglect situation. Ziggy was one of 48 dogs found living in deplorable conditions in Reagan, Tennessee. He, along with numerous other dogs, was found chained outdoors with inadequate food, water and veterinary care.
The first thing most people notice when meeting Alley is her happy wiggle and her “moony” eyes that beg for attention. This sweet puppy loves nothing more than cuddling in a lap and playing with new friends.
Which makes Alley’s story even harder to understand.
On a cold, gray day in January, Louisville Metro Solid Waste employees were removing debris from alleys when they found a shocking site: under a pile of branches was a golden-colored dog. Half the skin on her back right leg was missing. She was whimpering in pain.
Kentucky Humane Society offers month-long special in honor of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) is celebrating Adopt a Shelter Cat Month by waiving adoption fees on all cats age one year and older the entire month of June.
The special is valid at all 10 KHS adoption centers, including its East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and nine adoption centers in Feeders Supply stores.
On Monday afternoon, a Kentucky Humane Society staff member found two containers taped shut in front of a locked door at our main facility. The first box contained a gray mother cat, whom we named Queenie, and 6 young kittens. The second box had a male cat with 3 older kittens. We named the adult cat Prince. While the person who abandoned the cats had tried to poke holes in the plastic container, none of the holes actually penetrated the walls, leaving the cats with no airflow. Heat rolled out of the container as we cut it open. However, we were relieved to see that all the cats survived their time in these makeshift ovens and appear to be healthy.
The Kentucky Humane Society's Steedly location is closed, May 6 for Derby. Our Healthy Pets Clinic and Admissions offices are closed. Our Lyndon Campus is closed as well. We are open Friday during Oaks. You may visit any of our nine Louisville area Feeders Supply adoption locations on Saturday to view animals and to adopt.
Have a safe and happy Derby.
This is no April Fools! Select dogs are available from the Kentucky Humane Society for $25 this Saturday and Sunday, April 1 & 2.

The Kentucky Humane Society's Healthy Pets Clinic opened March 1 at our renovated Sam Swope TLC, 241 Steedly Drive in south Louisville. The Kentucky Humane Society wants to ensure that every pet owner in our community has access to basic veterinary care for dogs and cats they can afford. This is important not only to help keep owned pets healthy, but to ensure there are fewer sick animals in our community and in local shelters.
