Cricket's adoption fee is reduced. In October, Neil Huffman Subaru and Subaru of America are donating $100 toward the adoption fees of select dogs at the Kentucky Humane Society in honor of Subaru's "loves pets" month. One dog a day will be chosen to be added to this special. Because Cricket's normal adoption fee is $200, his adoption fee is $100 in October. Adopters in Jefferson County are responsible for $10.50 licensing, and donations are gratefully accepted!

This sweet little brown-eyed-girl is ready to steal your heart and fill your life with love. Cricket is a one-year-old Hound mix and weighs about 35lbs. She came to the Kentucky Humane Society when her owner could no longer care for her. She lived outside for most of her life and is working on becoming more comfortable with indoor spaces. When she got to KHS we found that she had heartworms. She has been treated and is heartworm free! After her treatment Cricket became very sensitive to handling and our behavior team took some time to work with her and get her more comfortable with touch. While Cricket can be shy and timid, we've seen her come out of her shell and show us her sweet, silly self. She LOVES to play with toys and will zoom around with them and throw them in the air. Her prior owner said she would escape the yard to play with the older children in the neighborhood, so she can go home with children 5 and up. She has not had much experience with other dogs and wants to be the center of attention in the home. She has also had no experience with cats. She's a smart girl and enjoys learning. She responds very well to clicker training and would love to be in a home that could continue her training. It may take her some time to become 100% comfortable with a person, but it's well worth the wait. Once she knows you she will flop in your lap or sit next to you and put her head on your shoulder or leg, just looking for some love, and giving some too. She really is a wonderful little girl that deserves a home that can be patient with her and help her learn what it means to be a spoiled pup. Cricket is spayed, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Cricket is a student in our dog training program. Please read her description above. After reading her description in full, and if you are interested in meeting her, please submit an online adoption application located at Once we have received your adoption application, our behavior team will follow up and provide you with more information. You can also email for more info.
