Born on October 9, 2014, this snowy-coated feline was the last of his litter to be adopted and, when he was adopted with another one of of our cats in February of 2017, we thought they both had found their Happy Ending. Unfortunately, Gourami and the other cat sabotaged the success of their adoption with less than desirable behavior. Despite having a small fortune worth of toys, scratch pads and scratch posts, both cats found their owner's new furniture and new carpet more to their liking when it came to flexing their claws. While Gourami is friendly enough and will occasionally snuggle up on a lap, it's on his own terms. He would much rather be stretched out on a comfy cat bed on a sunny window sill. As for other cats, his owner said he felt that Gourami would probably be happy as an only cat but Gourami had no trouble getting used to the other cats in the room almost from the first day. We admit, Gourami is far from 'purrfect' but he still deserves a chance at a forever home. If you don't have carpet and aren't picky about your furniture, you may not mind this mischievous cat's bad behavior. And there's always the chance that he'll outgrow some of it. Still, you should be prepared to accept Gourami as he is just as he will accept you as you are. /// GOURAMI IS SPONSORED THRU AUGUST 2026 BY AN ANONYMOUS DONOR WHO WAS ALSO A GREAT SUPPORTER OF AND FRIEND TO ANIMAL CARE SOCIETY.

Ginger was adopted as a little kitten from an Indiana shelter but her owner had to surrender her several months later after finding out that her young daughter's chronic illness was due to an allergy to cats. This gorgeous long-haired kitty lived with two older cats and would probably acclimate well to a home with other feline-friendly cats. However, we think she'd probably be just as happy as your 'one and only' since she never interacts with any of the other cats in the room (including the two she came in with). Her owner told us that Ginger is very good with children and accepting of visitors but likes to smell their hand first. She added Ginger doesn't like being petted on her belly or having her nails trimmed but is accustomed to being brushed, can be playful but is on the lazy side, loves balls that rattle, and has a 'silent' meow. Since becoming our guest, our observations have been that Ginger does NOT like being brushed and she's not that crazy about being held. Nor does she like being petted for very long. She does sometimes 'pick' a person and will hop up on their lap but for, the most part, she much prefers to curl up on a bed in our bay window to soak up the sun and bird-watch. Because of our observations, we don't feel comfortable placing Ginger in a home where children live or frequently visit. We think she'd do much better with someone who wants a gorgeous but independent cat and who won't mind Ginger's 'hands off' attitude. If you would like to give her a loving and committed forever home, just stop by the shelter soon to fill out an application or, if you prefer, you can submit one online through our website (www.animalcaresociety.org). /// GINGER IS SPONSORED THRU MARCH 2019 BY ANNIE HODAPP-MOREHOUSE IN HONOR OF HER FELINE-LOVING FRIEND, NANCY SUTHERLAND.

Lucy is one of several cats transferred to ACS from another shelter in mid-August 2018. Like most Torties, she's beautiful and confident and made herself at home here from day one. She loves attention, comes when called (most of the time) and is quick to return affection. While she hasn't cuddled up with any of the other cats in her room, she doesn't seem to mind them being around. When we took a couple of dogs into the room (one at a time), Lucy didn't approach them...she just stared at them from her perch on one of the shelves. Looks and 'purr-sonality,' Lucy has plenty of both! To meet her, just stop by our shelter. /// LUCY IS SPONSORED THRU FEBRUARY 2019 BY ELIZABETH THIRLWELL.

Cheeta is one of a litter of 8 puppies born around 5/29/18. The person who surrendered the litter to a high-kill shelter when the pups were just 8 weeks old said only that the mama dog was a Jack Russell Terrier. The breed of the father (or fathers) is unknown. It's been a real joy watching Cheeta and her siblings grow up from roly, poly waddling pups to sometimes graceful, sometimes clumsy but always adorable young dogs! Like most pups, Cheeta is full of energy and has a playful personality once she's comfortable. One of the smaller pups in the litter, Cheeta is also a little more timid than some of her siblings. She's very loving but it often take a little longer to get her confidence up. Cheeta also needs a little work on leash-walking and, as is the case with almost all pups, a puppy obedience class wouldn't hurt either. She uses the newspaper in her kennel but, because a shelter is a completely different environment than a house, Cheeta's new owner should have the patience, time and experience to work with her on house-training if it proves necessary. Feeding her and taking her outside for walks and potty breaks on a consistent schedule is key as she has proven here that she quickly adapts to a routine. Cheeta has had all her vaccinations (including the canine flu), is spayed, micro-chipped and on monthly flea and heartworm preventatives. If you have room in your heart and home for this sweet pup, just stop by the shelter to meet her. She ready, willing and able to give her adopter an abundance of love, laughter and happiness! /// CHEETA IS SPONSORED THRU FEBRUARY 2019 BY OUR FRIENDS AT BATEY BROPHY LAW OFFICE.

Antiope is one of a litter of 8 puppies born around 5/29/18. The person who surrendered the litter to a high-kill shelter when the pups were just 8 weeks old said only that the mama dog was a Jack Russell Terrier. The breed of the father (or fathers) is unknown.

Like most pups, Antiope is full of energy and has a playful personality. She can be a little hesitant in new environments and around new people at first but give her a few minutes to become comfortable and that loving and affectionate personality will come shining through!

Pawla Abdul is a people-friendly, smart, energetic and powerful young dog that was transferred to ACS from a rural-county shelter. Although we were told that Pawla is good with other dogs, she seems to have a high prey-drive that really kicks in when she's around smaller and/or vocal dogs. Pawla does seems to be smitten with Gideon, one of our larger canine residents, however, and might do well in a home that has a male dog as big or bigger than her. Because she was a stray, we weren't given much information about Pawla and can't say with certainty whether or not she's house-trained. She is very good about keeping her kennel clean but her owner should be willing and prepared to work with Pawla on house-training should it prove necessary. Pawla has pretty good leash manners except for when she sees or hears a smaller dog. This is a behavior that definitely needs to be addressed by her adopter. And, because of her strength, Pawla needs an experienced and physically capable owner. A home with a fenced yard large enough to give Pawla the room she needs to run and play would definitely be a plus! Someone who is active outdoors and will make sure that Pawla receives a lot of exercise would be ideal for her. If you don't mind a dog that has a few 'ruff' edges, then Pawla just might be the right dog for you.

This petite little Tuxedo doesn't appear to be much older than a toddler herself yet came in with two kittens. Inda and her litter stayed with one of our wonderful foster moms until the kittens were old enough to be adopted and Inda had recovered from her spay. The foster mom told us Inda is a very sweet, sweet cat but is on the timid side initially in new places. She has the tiniest little meow - if you didn't see who it was coming from, you'd swear it was coming from a little kitten. Inda loves the company of other cats and, more often than not, you'll find her cuddled up in the same bed with one of her feline roomies in the McKinney Room. To give Inda the loving and committed forever home she deserves, just stop by our shelter to meet her and fill out an application. /// INDA IS SPONSORED THRU NOVEMBER 2019 BY JENNIFER ARNETT IN HONOR OF DAHLI AND GRACIE.

Malachi is a happy, energetic and often vocal little guy that was picked up as a stray at a county shelter. When no owner came forward to claim him after 6 days, we had one of our wonderful volunteers go pick him up and spare him the fate that so many strays face when there 'time is up.' Malachi weighs 15 lbs and is a great size to accompany you on outings. While we don't know if he is house-trained, he can hold it for quite a long time! Malachi has great leash manners and loves his walks. He seems to do well with other similar-sized dogs as well as children and canine-friendly cats. What Malachi doesn't do well with is being left alone. Poor little guy hates being by himself and will vocalize his unhappiness. If you live in an apartment or condo and/or are gone from home for long stretches at a time, Malachi wouldn't be very happy and would make sure anyone within hearing distance knew it. On the other hand, if you're home most of the time, can take your dog to work with you or want a dog that's a great size to accompany you on outings, then Malachi would love to meet you! If you have been looking for a small dog with a big personality to share your life for the next dozen or more years, make sure you stop by our shelter and ask to spend some time with this personable little fella! /// MALACHI IS SPONSORED THRU MAY 2019 BY OUR FRIENDS AT OLDFATHER LAW FIRM; AND THRU FEBRUARY 2019 BY MARGARET STAPLETON IN LOVING MEMORY OF HER WONDERFUL ACS DOG, HENRI (NEE SPINNER).

Damien and his brother, Ace, were transferred to ACS from another shelter in mid-August 2018. This sleek, ebony-coated feline has a very regal look to him and seems to have an equally regal personality. He picks the most comfortable bed in the bay window and spends the day alternating between cat-napping and watching everything that goes on in the room (much like a king on his throne). He kinda reminds us of Bagheera, the panther in THE JUNGLE BOOK. But don't let Damien's aloofness fool you...he's actually a very sweet cat and is quite responsive when talked to.

This handsome young fella lost his home because he played too rough with the young child in the home. With another baby on the way, Dewey's owners felt it best to go ahead and rehome Dewey. It's a story we hear often and is why we don't like to put young animals in homes with young children. Most of the time, the injuries are just the result of rambunctious play and isn't an indication that the animal is aggressive. Since Dewey's a pretty friendly kitten, we think that's the case here. Still, whether the scratches are intentional or accidental, they still hurt tender young skin. Dewey would fare better in a home with older children or adults. Dewey lived with another cat (that he was affectionate and playful with) and a dog (that he "didn't hang with") in his first home so he might enjoy a similar environment in his new home. Dewey likes to be petted on his head, back and sides but NOT his belly. He also doesn't like veterinarians. Dewey loves to play and every cat he meets he immediately sees as a playmate so he'd be happiest in a multi-cat home. Although his owners told us that Dewey is a Russian Blue (and he does have the solid gray coat and dark nose of the breed), his eyes are more of a goldish green - not the vivid green found in the breed. He's still a gorgeous kitty, though, purebred or not! To find out if Dewey would be a good fit for you and your household, just stop by the shelter and ask to meet him. /// DEWEY IS SPONSORED THRU APRIL 2019 BY CAROLE MAHAFFEY IN HONOR OF BETSY NEICHTER.

Looking for a feline friend that's past the 'kitten krazies' but still young, playful and active? Well, you should stop by and ask to meet Kenny. Found on a young couple's doorstep back in October of 2018, it was obvious that Kenny had recently been abandoned and that he was entirely out of his element on his own outside. The couple, with their first baby on the way, didn't really want a pet but, after Kenny started showing signs of being attacked and picked on by other animals in the area, they brought him into their home to keep him safe. After making sure Kenny got all his vaccinations, they asked if we would take the young cat in. Now Kenny's with us hoping someone will soon give him the loving and committed forever home he so desperately wants. The couple told us that Kenny has no litter box issues, he loves to play, and he showed no desire to go back outside even when they opened a door in front of him. No doubt about it - Kenny's smart enough to be thankful for a second chance! We recently found out that Kenny seems to really like cat-savvy children. To find out if Kenny would be a good fit for you and your household, just stop by the shelter soon and ask to spend some time with him. /// KENNY IS SPONSORED THRU FEBRUARY 2019 BY OUR FRIENDS AT BATEY BROPHY LAW OFFICE PLLC.

This handsome fella with the most amazing topaz-yellow eyes is extremely loving and affectionate. Nigel loves to cuddle up against you and will rise on his hind legs to meet your hand when you reach to pet him. Nigel comes when called, loves to sit on your lap and adores being petted all over. He's not just all about the loving, however. Nigel is also very playful. He loves little toy mice that rattle and he's especially fond of Q-tips! Born in March 2018, Nigel gets along very well with other cats and would probably be happiest in a home that has at least one other playful feline-friendly cat if your schedule requires leaving him alone most of the day. Trust us, though... you won't WANT to leave Nigel once you experience the love-fest he'll lavish on you!

Ms. Kitty is the whole package! She's got looks and personality galore, is super friendly and easily adapts to new surroundings. Her only fault, so far, seems to be her tendency to want to dart out the door. Because of this, she would be safer in a home where any children who live or frequently visit are old enough to make sure there isn't a sneaky cat behind them just waiting for her chance to escape! Ms. Kitty was tranferred to ACS from another shelter so we have no background on her. She certainly wants to be where the most people are so that she get lots of loving and petting.

PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO --- Meet Squirt - a little Chihuahua mix who was so christened because he was the last puppy whelped and also the smallest puppy of the litter. Squirt was surrendered to a rescue by a family that had way more dogs than they could feed and provide veterinary care for. They did, however, have an abundance of love and, as a result, Squirt is very friendly, affectionate and is a real cuddler. Because he was used to being constantly surrounded by people and other animals, Squirt doesn't care for being alone and will vocalize his unhappiness. He does eventually quiet down but if you live in an apartment or condo, your neighbors might not have the patience to put up with Squirt's barking and crying until he settles down. We were told that Squirt was born around 10/16/18 and on his 1/16/19 arrival date at ACS he weighed 4.4 lbs. Because of his diminutive size, any children who live in or frequently visit the adopter's home must be old enough to properly handle him and dog-savvy enough to be able to tell when he doesn't want to be bothered. A lot of small-breed pups grow up to be not so fond of children solely because they were inadvertently mishandled by a child or children. Squirt is doing great on paper-training but his adopter will need to have plenty of time and patience to work with the little guy until he is reliably house-trained. If you just got new carpet or hardwood floors and/or have to be away from home for long hours at a time, an older puppy or adult dog that can 'hold it' longer would probably be a better fit for you. Squirt loves squeaky toys, puppy-appropriate chew toys, and giving lots of kisses. His favorite place to be is cuddled up on your lap but he's also a little bundle of energy. His adopter will need to be agile and equally energetic to keep up with Squirt - especially when he darts out an open door if you aren't watching him. The little 'squirt' thinks it's a game for you to chase him down! No doubt about it - Squirt will have his fair share of missteps as he grows up and you might find yourself occasionally asking yourself just what you got yourself into but all the 'downs' will definitely be worth all the 'ups' that Squirt will bring to your life! If you would like to give Squirt a loving and committed forever home, just submit an application thru our website (www.animalcaresociety.org). Once we have worked your application, we will contact you. Please don't come to the shelter expecting to meet Squirt unless we have called you to schedule a meet and greet. He hasn't had all his vaccinations yet and we want to do everything we can to make sure he stays healthy for his adopter. NOTE: Squirt won't be old enough to be neutered until March 2019 so, UNTIL HE IS NEUTERED, WE WILL ONLY CONSIDER APPLICATIONS FROM PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN JEFFERSON COUNTY KY. /// SQUIRT IS SPONSORED THRU JULY 2019 BY OUR FRIENDS AT OLDFATHER LAW FIRM.

Fancy and her BFF (Best Furry Friend), Faith, recently lost their home when their owner's health issues no longer allowed her to provide adequate time and care for all her pets. A rescue working with the lady asked if we could take Faith and Fancy in and do our best to keep them together. We told them we'd try our hardest although it isn't always easy finding an adopter willing to take in one older dog, much less two older dogs. Fancy was born in October of 2013 and, although she's not a Spring Chicken, she is still very active and VERY capable of giving lots of love! She's quite the little lap dog and is very generous with her affection. Fancy has been diagnosed with a luxating patella of her right hind leg. It isn't causing her any pain and it sure doesn't slow her down on walks but her adopter should have the financial means to cover any specialized veterinary care Fancy may require should the condition worsen. Both dogs appear to be house-trained. Fancy can be quite vocal in showing her displeasure at being left alone and, while she does eventually settle down, she does take a little longer to do so than Faith. Of the two dogs, Faith seems to have taken on the role of being the "Queen Bee" and Fancy seems to be OK with that. If you have room in your heart and home for two little dogs that find joy in just being with you, then make sure you stop by our shelter and ask to meet Faith and Fancy.

Sometimes people get a puppy having the best intentions of giving it a wonderful forever home but then Life gets in the way and things don't always turn out like they'd planned. Such was the case with this pup with the most soulful brown eyes. Bronzie is a good pup that just ended up having some bad luck. Her owners were young and weren't ready to make a lifetime committment. Fortunately, Bronzie's owners had a relative in the rescue business who called us as she wanted to make sure that Bronzie ended up somewhere safe. We'll love Bronzie, care for her, and do everything we can to find her a home with someone who will take up where we leave off and give Bronzie a great home for the rest of her life. We were told that Bronzie was born around 10/09/18 and is a mix of Chihuahua and Beagle. On February 8, 2019, she weighed right at 11 lbs and she probably still has a few more months of growing to do. Bronzie is very sweet and loving but is a little nervous when first introduced to new people/surroundings. Once she knows she's safe, she's very playful, energetic and full of mischief. Like any young puppy, she'll make her fair share of mistakes over the next few months - chewing what she shouldn't, pottying where she shouldn't and getting into things/places she shouldn't. Her adopter will need to be patient and kind but firm and consistent so that Bronzie grows up to be a well-mannered dog. This sweet gal has her whole life ahead of her and a whole lot of love to give her adopter. If you want to be on the receiving end of all that love, just submit an application through our website (www.animalcaresociety.org). Once we've worked your application, we'll be in touch with you. Bronzie won't get her last puppy shot until the beginning of March and, because we want to keep her healthy for her new family, only applicants who've been scheduled for a 'meet and greet' will be allowed to meet her for now. Thanks for understanding! Primary Color: White Secondary Color: Bronze Weight: 11lbs Age: 0yrs 4mths 0wks I am available for adoption at the Animal Care Society.
This handsome fella is one of three Airedale mix pups turned into a county shelter. Jazz was born around early October 2018 and, at 4 months of age, weighed a leggy 22 lbs. Based on that, and judging from the size of his paws, we're guesstimating that he'll probably be a good-sized dog once he's done growing so keep this in mind if you are only wanting a medium-sized or knee-high dog. Like most young pups, Jazz is very friendly, outgoing and lovable but he's also very playful, energetic and full of mischief. He's a hoot to watch when he's outside. He'll go from running the crazy 8's to the bowing play position then back to running the crazy 8's! Jazz is sure to make his fair share of mistakes over the next few months - chew things he shouldn't, potty where he shouldn't, and get into places/things he shouldn't. If you have a raised a puppy before and have the time, patience and energy to do so again, then we think you'll agree with us that Jazz will be worth it all! If you would like to give Jazz a loving and committed forever home, then please submit an application through our website (www.animalcaresociety.org). Once we've worked your application, we will contact you. If we think Jazz and your household are a good fit, we'll arrange a meet and greet. Because Jazz won't receive his last puppy shot until mid-March, we are only allowing people that have a meet and greet scheduled to meet him at this time. We want to do everything we can to keep him healthy for his adopter and that means limiting his exposure. He will also need to be neutered before he can go to a new home. Thanks for understanding.

This handsome little dog definitely had a Guardian Angel looking out for him. Zack had been in a county shelter and was transported to ACS on 1/25/19. We knew the minute we saw him in a crate in the transporter's truck that he was really sick. Zack was rushed to Shively Animal Hospital where he spent almost a week recuperating. It was touch and go there for awhile since poor Zack refused to eat anything but after several days, he started perking up and developed an appetite. And that appetite continued to grow after he came back to our shelter. This fella LOVES to eat! It's like he's trying to make up for all the meals he missed out on when he was sick (and maybe even before that since he was bone-thin on arrival). Compact and short to the ground, Zack weighs 22-lbs and looks like he's got some Jack Russell, Corgi, Dachshund or Mini Pinscher in him but who knows what his breed make-up is for sure. There's no question about how sweet he is, though. And don't make the mistake of thinking that Zack's short legs limit his ability to jump. This little guy can easily launch himself over a four foot fence! That 'talent' might be how Zack ended up as a stray in that county shelter! Any fence in a prospective adopter's home is going to need to be at least 6 feet tall to keep Zack safely confined. The other option is making sure he is always on leash when he's outside. Zack might not be the right fit for every adopter but we know his Special Person is out there and he or she will be lucky to have the love and devotion of this sweet little guy! To find out if Zack would be a good fit for you and your household, just stop by the shelter and ask to meet him. He can't go to a new home until after he's neutered but we are taking applications on him now.

Kyla is a lot of dog in a small package. This 15-lb mixed-breed looks like she could have some Rat or Jack Russell Terrier in her but we wouldn't rule out Corgi, Dachshund or Beagle. Although Kyla is very energetic, she's also very affectionate. She just enjoys being with her people and wants so badly to please them. Kyla came to us from a rescue and has been around multiple dogs. We were told that she is crate-trained but can be a barker. If you live in an apartment or condo, then Kyla is probably not the dog for you. If you own a home with a secure fenced yard, have lots of time to spend playing with a dog, have the patience and time to invest in some training, and want a devoted canine companion to keep your heart full and household hopping, then make sure you stop by and ask to meet Kyla.

Meet Dapper Dan - an adorably cute little 9-lb Shih Tzu with a sassy little strut to his stride. Dan wasn't always so cute, however. When he was found, his coat with dirty and matted down to the skin. He was also suffering from a skin infection. The rescue that took Dan in got him groomed and made sure he was treated for and recovered from his skin infection before transferring him to our shelter. This little fella is so sweet and loving. He just covers you in kisses and will bring you a toy in an invitation to play. Dan loves to curl up in a comfy, cozy bed and wouldn't mind at all being spoiled rotten. As cute as he is (and that's mighty darn cute), Dan still needs boundaries and limitations so that he doesn't develop a less than desirable attitude. Because his former owner didn't have Dan neutered, Dan's first inclination is to mark everything with his scent (THIS is mine, THIS is mine, THIS is mine - you get the picture). Neutering him will usually diminish if not totally eliminate this behavior but, until his adopter is confident that Dan is reliably house-trained, a belly band will help. Shih Tzus are goofy, gregarious and fun-loving dogs that are devoted to their people. Some, like Dan, however, are not always good around small children. Any children who live in or frequently visit his adopter's home, should be old enough to treat Dan gently and respectfully and be dog-savvy enough to know when he doesn't want to be bothered. Even though he's a friendly little fella, he still has his moments and isn't beyond giving a growl or maybe even a nip if he feels he's being mishandled. Dapper Dan can't go to a new home until after his neuter but we are taking applications on him now. We don't get Shih Tzus - especially ones as small as Dan - in very often, so make sure you submit an application soon if you are interested in him!

This sweet little 30-lb Aussie mix has a gentle spirit and is full of personality. Surrendered by her owner to a county shelter (they were moving), Mataya quickly won our hearts from the moment she walked in our doors. She is very well-mannered, adores attention, and doesn't seem to be much of a barker. About the only time she seems to bark is when she's trying to let us know she needs a potty break or sometimes if all the other dogs are barking. According to the form filled out at the other shelter by her previous owner, Mataya is house-trained; not destructive; gets along well with children, cats and other dogs; "likes a lot of attention...and likes to be loved as much as possible." We were also informed by the staff at the other shelter that Mataya "knows a lot of commands but only in Spanish." Unfortunately, none of the ACS staff speak Spanish but Mataya is very responsive to English, too. Guess you could say she is bi-lingual! While you may not notice it at first, Mataya is missing the paw on her right rear leg. We don't know if this was due to an accident or if it's a congenital condition but she sure doesn't let it stop her from doing anything and everything any other dog can do! And we sure hope it doesn't stop anyone from considering adopting her. Potential adopters should also know that Mataya's bloodwork indicated that she might have liver disease. A biopsy done at the time of her spay, however, didn't find any evidence of liver disease or a liver shunt. Still, the vet recommends that Mataya's adopter have bloodwork repeated every 6 months. Mataya might have a higher risk of some type of problem down the road but she's such a love and deserves a loving and committed home with people who will ensure that all her needs are met - whatever they may turn out to be. If you have the financial means to cover not just routine but any other type of veterinary care as well that your furry family member might require during its lifetime, then Mataya would love to meet you!
