Calling all Boxer lovers! Meet Tess, an 8 year old Boxer with a zest for life and a bounce in her step! Tess loves walks, car rides, arranging her bed just so, getting butt scratches and watching her human prepare Tess' dinner. Tess weighs 55 pounds and is a pretty fawn color with just a hint of brindle and a black mask, and she has the softest fur. She's a typical boxer who snores gently when she sleeps (no need for a white noise machine!). Tess lost her home after living with the same family since she was a puppy. When she arrived at KHS, she was suffering from very painful dental issues. After KHS removed a number of terrible teeth, Tess is now so much happier! Tess is currently in a foster home, and her foster family reports that Tess is an easy house guest. She's very quiet and only barks if someone is at the door or the gate. She loves spending the day snoozing on a dog bed (Tess does not like to sleep on couches or human beds). As soon as her foster mom puts on a coat, Tess gets super excited to go for a walk. She loves walks more than anything! And while she loves her foster mom and likes meeting new people, she really loves her foster dad. She seems to be a "daddy's girl." In her foster home Tess is relaxed when left alone and not destructive. She occasionally has peed in the home when left alone for a number of hours, so her foster family keeps her in the kitchen if they will be gone for a while. Tess lived for many years with another dog, but her previous owner reported that she sometimes growled at the other dog over food. If you have another dog at home, we recommend you bring your dog to your adoption appointment so you can make sure that Tess and your dog want to be pals.

As part of our ambassador program, some of our feline and canine friends have the opportunity to live in foster homes. This allows our staff to learn more about each animal's individual personality and needs, while they are in a more comfortable living space, outside of the shelter setting. The goal of the Adoption Ambassador program is for these foster animals to be adopted directly from their foster home. If you are interested in meeting them, please first submit an online adoption application located at www.kyhumane.org/dog-app. Once we have received your adoption application, our foster team will follow up and provide you with more information.

Sponsor An Animal

We need your help to care for the thousands of dogs, cats, and horses we take in each year. The Kentucky Humane Society saves every adoptable animal and provides them with food, shelter, spay/neuter surgeries, medical and behavioral assistance and then finds them loving homes. Your sponsorship of a special animal will help us save more lives! In addition, you can choose to Sponsor a Animal in honor of a loved one (two-legged or four-legged).

For a sponsorship of $250 or more for a dog or cat – or $500 or more for a horse – you will receive a photo and information about your special animal. Learn more about the Sponsor a Animal program.
