Mikey: The Paws Report, Feb. 11

On The Paws Report today at 3:30 pm:

Meet Mikey, and adorable black-and-white tuxedo kitten. Mikey came to the Kentucky Humane Society along with his mom, Noelle, and five siblings. The kittens were just two weeks old when they arrived, so they and their mom spent time in a temporary home, where they received love, attention and socialization - which is so important to growing kittens (and puppies). Now Mikey is ready for his forever home. This playful, silly kitten seems to get along well with other cats and loves meeting new people. Mikey is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Visit Mikey at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville. Learn more about KHS’ adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.

Also:
- KHS took in 17 dogs from a pretty sad hoarding situation in Western Kentucky last Friday. A number of the dogs will be available for adoption today. But a few will need temporary foster homes, including a pregnant Boxer/Basset Hound mix who is heartworm positive and two shy/fearful dogs who will need confidence building.

- We are in great need for foster homes right now and we would LOVE to get some new fosters! We have many animals waiting for temporary homes. Commitments can be as little as 2 weeks to a few months, and we are happy to work around foster parents’ schedules. Fostering truly saves lives: often we can only take in needy animals from other shelters (typically puppies, moms with nursing babies, and animals who need medical fostering) if we know we have foster families who can help.

- People can learn more on our website, www.kyhumane.org or they can email foster@kyhumane.org
