10/27/2021- Bubbie, Boxer Mix
Bubbie is one of the sweetest and silliest pups there is. Bubbie is a Boxer mix and we believe he is around 8 years old. He still has plenty of pep in his step though. He loves the company of other dogs and is friendly with all people. Bubbie enjoys going for leisurely strolls around the neighborhood and riding in the car. If you are interested in this awesome doggo, stop by the shelter to meet him or submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

10/20/2021- Sergeant, Labrador Retriever Mix

Sergeant came to The Animal Care Society from a rural shelter that no longer had space for him. Sergeant is around 2 years old and weighs 40 pounds. He is friendly with other dogs and has a lot of energy. He would make a great walking companion. If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy, apply online at www.animalcaresociety.org or stop by the shelter to meet him.

10/13/2021- Delta
Delta came to The Animal Care Society from a rural shelter in Mississippi with her two babies. Delta is a gorgeous 2-year-old Pitbull/Pointer mix. She’s a big girl with long legs for days. She loves other dogs and would love to find a home with another playful canine companion. She is not a fan of cats, however. If you are interested in adopting Delta, stop by the shelter or submit an application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

10/06/2021- Stella
Stella came to The Animal Care Society when her owner could no longer care for her. Stella is a sweet 4-year-old kitty ready to find her forever home! She can be quite shy when meeting new people, but once she warms up to you, she loves attention. Stella also does very well with other cats. If you are interested in adopting this pretty girl, stop by the shelter or submit an application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

09/29/2021- Tinsey, Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Tinsy came to The Animal Care Society from an overcrowded rural shelter. She’s a gorgeous pit bull mix that we believe is around 1-2 years old. Tinsy enjoys playing with other dogs but has a rough play style, so she would do best with large dogs. She also pulls quite hard on the leash so she will need help with that. If you’re interested in adopting Tinsy, stop by the shelter or submit an application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

09/22/2021- Honey, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Honey came to The Animal Care Society after being found as a stray by a kind samaritan. Honey is a sweet kitty around 1-2 years old. She enjoys the company of other cats but is scared of dogs. If you are interested in meeting Honey, stop by the shelter or submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

09/15/2021- Sassy, Chihuahua & Terrier Mix
Sassy came to The Animal Care Society from a rural shelter in New Mexico that no longer had space for her. She is a Chihuahua mix around 6-months-old. She has spent some time in foster, so we have an idea of how she behaves in a household setting. She uses puppy pads but hasn’t quite figured out how to potty outside yet. She likes rough-housing with other dogs, so she would do best living with a playful dog. She also has a tendency to get into a little mischief when she’s not being supervised, so we recommend crate training her. If you are interested in adopting Sassy, stop by the shelter or submit an application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

09/08/2021- Miss Kitty, Domestic Long Hair Mix

Miss Kitty is a 12-year-old gal looking for a quiet place to live out her golden years. Miss Kitty’s owner sadly passed away, and she is confused and nervous in the shelter. She would do best in a home without small kids or dogs. She does fine with other cats. She mainly just wants a warm bed to sleep on. If you are interested in adopting Miss Kitty, stop by the shelter or submit an application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

09/1/2021- Bonnie & Clyde, BONDED, American Bulldog MixWe are calling this sweet duo, Bonnie and Clyde. We believe they are 2-3 years old and weigh around 50lbs each. They came to The Animal Care Society from a rural high kill shelter in New Mexico. Bonnie is the more shy one while Clyde is a bit more outgoing. They rely on each other so we are looking for a home that can provide a comfy spot on the couch for the both of them. If you are interested in meeting this adorable pair, stop by the shelter or submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

08/25/2021- Rico, Domestic Short Hair
Rico came to The Animal Care Society from an unfortunate cat hoarding situation. For the past month, we have been working on his socialization and teaching him that humans aren’t so scary. Rico is about 10 weeks old and looking for his forever home. Come fall in love today! You can also submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

08/18/2021- Chance, Chihuahua & Terrier Mix

Chance came to The Animal Care Society from a rural shelter in the south that no longer had room for him. Chance is a sweet Chihuahua/Terrier mix that will probably be small/medium sized when fully grown. Chance is currently about 5 months old. If you are interested in meeting Chance, stop by the shelter or submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

08/11/2021- Hector, Terrier Mix
Hector came to The Animal Care Society after he and his siblings found themselves at a rural shelter in Tennessee when their owner passed away. ACS stepped in to take the family to find them a new loving home. Hector is 13 years old, 15lbs, and at least partially deaf. When he was neutered, he got his teeth cleaned and had to have several teeth pulled so Hector eats soft food only. Hector enjoys the company of other dogs but would be fine as an only dog if his owners were home with him most of the time. Hector is looking for a retirement home to live out his last few years getting all the love he deserves. He is currently in foster care and will stay there until he is adopted. If you want to meet Hector, submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org so we can set up a meet and greet.

08/03/2021- Sirius, Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Sirius came to The Animal Care Society after finding himself at an overcrowded shelter in Mississippi that was running out of space. A kind volunteer transport Sirius and some of his buddies all the way here for a better chance at being adopted. We believe Sirius is around a year old and 40 pounds. He can be a little shy upon first meeting someone new, but after he warms up, this boy is such a lovebug. If you are interested in opening up your home to this deserving pup, come by the shelter or submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

07/28/2021- Brownie, Shih Tzu Mix

Brownie was originally found as a stray by a kind samaritan. His finder searched for 2 months to find his owners but no one came forward. The finder didn’t have intentions of keeping him so they brought Brownie to us so we can find him a forever home. We believe Brownie is around 10 years old and weighs 20 pounds. Brownie has allergies and is currently on medication to keep them at bay. He also has something called papilloma virus which can be contagious to other dogs, so his adopter should keep that in mind. If you are interested in meeting Brownie, stop by the shelter or submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

07/21/2021- Shamus, Domestic Short Hair Mix
Introducing Mr. Shamus! Shamus is about 12 weeks old and came to The Animal Care Society with his siblings. He can be a little more shy than his siblings, but he is becoming more social the longer he’s been here. Shamus would love to get adopted with one of his siblings or to just have another cat companion in the house. If you are interested in adopting, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

07/14/2021- Frida, Coonhound Mix

Frida has had a tough life so far. The Animal Care Society was contacted to assist in pulling some dogs from a hoarding situation in southern Kentucky. Frida lived in a house with 80+ other dogs. While she doesn’t seem to have been abused, she was absolutely neglected. Her skin was so infected and itchy, she was covered in bloody scabs from itching. She also had both eye and ear infections. Frida probably lived in this discomfort for a long time, as she had never seen a vet before coming here. We believe Frida is around 3 years old and a Coonhound mix. Despite everything she’s been through, she doesn’t let it stop her from being a very happy girl. She loves attention and getting to play outside. She is not yet housebroken but she is getting better about it. If you are interested in meeting Frida, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

07/06/2021- Felony, Pit Bull & Terrier Mix
Felony came to The Animal Care Society from a shelter in southern Tennessee where she was facing euthanasia if a rescue didn’t step up and take her. This shelter was overflowing with animals and Felony’s time was up. Thankfully we had a kennel available with her name on it. Felony is a super sweet and social lovebug of a dog. She’s always smiling when she meets new people and she also enjoys the company of other canine friends. If you are interested in meeting Felony, stop by for a visit or submit an adoption application online at www.animalcaresociety.org.

06/30/2021- Stewart, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Stewart and his siblings were brought to The Animal Care Society by a kind samaritan who found them living outside of her house. Stewart is around 8 weeks old and is so adorable. If you are interested in meeting him or one of his siblings, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application! 

06/23/2021- Janis Joplin, Australian Cattle Dog & Blue Heeler Mix

Introducing the “Musician Puppies”! Janis Joplin and her siblings were born here at ACS back in March. They are now old enough to find their forever homes. Their mother was a Blue Heeler but we are unsure what the father was. We believe the father was a smaller dog with shorter legs possibly, as that’s a trait all the puppies seem to have. If you are interested in adopting Janis or one of her siblings, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

06/15/2021- Tiny, Breed Unkown

Tiny came to The Animal Care Society from a rural shelter in Tennessee with her two littermates. While we do not know exactly what breed Tiny is, we believe she will stay on the smaller side. What we do know is that she is absolutely adorable and sweet. If you are interested in meeting Tiny, head over to www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

06/09/2021- Flea, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Flea, his siblings, and his mama all came to The Animal Care Society when they were found abandoned in a box. They have spent most of their time in a foster home, but they are now old enough to find their forever homes! They are currently around 8 weeks old and very playful. If you are interested in Flea or one of his siblings, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

06/02/2021- Angelica, Mixed Breed

Back in February 2021, we rescued a sweet dog named Lyra from a rural shelter in Tennessee. We soon noticed that she was pregnant, and she gave birth to 6 beautiful babies in March. Now her puppies are old enough to find their forever homes. Angelica is one of her adorable puppies. She’s currently around 9 weeks old. We aren’t sure what breed they are but we know they will be large dogs. If you are interested in meeting Angelica, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

5/26/2021- Bulma, Domestic Short Hair

Bulma and her siblings came to The Animal Care Society when their owner could no longer care for them. They are around 9 weeks old and super playful and loveable. These kittens are definitely used to being handled and are quite socialized. If you are interested in adopting one of these goofballs, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

5/19/2021- Cleo & Shamus, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Cleo is one pretty kitty. She’s about 8-9 weeks old and came to The Animal Care Society with her siblings. At the moment, she is quite nervous and hissy around people so she will need a patient adopter who is willing to work with her. Cleo would love to get adopted with one of her siblings or to just have another cat companion in the house. If you are interested in adopting, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application! Primary Color: Grey Tabby Secondary Color: White

Introducing Mr. Shamus! Shamus is about 8-9 weeks old and came to The Animal Care Society with his siblings. At the moment, he is quite nervous and hissy around people so he will need a patient adopter who is willing to work with him. Shamus would love to get adopted with one of his siblings or to just have another cat companion in the house. If you are interested in adopting, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application! Primary Color: Brown Tabby Secondary Color: White

5/12/2021- Gracie, Coonhound Mix

Gracie had a rough start to life as a puppy. She was found as a stray in rural Kentucky when she was just a few months old. She was skin and bones and had clearly been on her own for a while. After nursing her back to health, they brought her to The Animal Care Society so we could find her a forever home. Gracie is a Coonhound mix around 6 months old. She seems to get along well with other animals but can be shy around small children. She will need an active family that is ready to take her on lots of walks! If you are interested in meeting Gracie, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

5/5/2021- Denver, Labrador Retriever


Denver is a gorgeous Yellow Labrador Retriever that came to The Animal Care Society when his owner could no longer care for him. He is around a year old and about 80 pounds. He does need to lose some weight though. Denver is very friendly and loves to give kisses. Denver will require a fenced-in backyard because he has zero leash manners and is extremely strong, he can easily pull someone down. He will need proper training and hopefully, his puppy-like manners will improve. He is mostly housebroken and well-behaved in his kennel. If you are interested in meeting Denver, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

4/28/2021- Alek

Alek is an adorable teenage kitty that’s 5 months old. He is a domestic short hair and his color is more buff than orange. Like most kitties, he loves to play! Alek is very outgoing and friendly. He loves others cats, especially his brother Hans. Although he likes to play, he also likes snuggle time too. If you think Alek is the perfect match for you, fill out an application at http://www.animalcaresociety.org/.

4/21/2021- Jinks, Border Collie
Jinks, an adoptable Border Collie Mix in Louisville, KY_image-1
Jinks is a special girl who is looking for a special adopter! Jinks came to The Animal Care Society after living in a home for 6 years. Unfortunately due to her breed, she was herding the small dogs in the house, so her owner decided they had to find a new home for Jinks. Jinks has not taken this change very well. She misses having a “human” and warm bed to sleep in at night. Jinks is nervous around strangers so as you can imagine, the shelter is stressful for her. She will most likely be afraid of people when they initially come to meet her, but once she’s in your home and settled, she will be your best friend. Jinks tends to pick one person and stick to them like glue. She needs to go to a quiet household, so no kiddos. We are not sure how Jinks is around men, as she’s only been around women in the past. She should also not go to a home with small animals because of her herding tendencies. If you are interested in meeting Jinks, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application.

4/14/2021- Monty

Monty is a very special boy! Monty came to The Animal Care Society with his brother from a rural kill shelter in the spring of 2020. His brother was quickly adopted but Monty is still here. We truly don’t understand why he’s been passed over so many times. Monty is such a sweet boy. He enjoys lounging around and getting head scratches. He likes to lick and nibble on people’s fingers. He is very friendly with other cats and curious when meeting dogs. He also loves playing with toys! It’s time for Monty to find the forever home he deserves. If you are interested in meeting Monty, head over to our website to fill out an application, www.animalcaresociety.org.

4/7/2021- Zoe, German Shepherd Mix
Zoe came to The Animal Care Society when her owners could no longer care for her. Zoe is a one-year-old German Shepherd mix, weighing about 80 pounds. According to her previous owners, she is housebroken and knows some basic obedience commands. Zoe will need an owner who is home most of the time, because she does not enjoy being alone. If her previous owners crated her, she would try to break out of the crate, hurting her face in the process. When she’s not in the crate, she’s much more relaxed and happy. Zoe has been around dogs in the past and appears to get along well with them. If you are interested in meeting Zoe, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

3/31/2021- Garfield, Persian

Garfield is a beautiful 2.5-year-old Persian kitty. Garfield’s original owner passed away so he went to live with a family member. He had been living there for the past year but did not do well with the resident Persian in the house. Garfield is a big boy who likes to bully other cats, and unfortunately, that was very stressful for the other feline. His previous owner believes that Garfield would do best as an only cat, with owners who are home a lot to give him the attention he desires. He enjoys being petted and hanging out with his humans as much as possible. Garfield is neutered and front-declawed. His ideal adopter would be someone who is familiar with the breed and knows about the potential genetic health issues that can come about, and the extensive routine grooming they require. Garfield has had a history of feline herpes in the past but hasn’t had a flare-up in over a year. This is contagious to other cats, so again, a home without cats would be best. If Garfield sounds like the right fit for your family, please submit an application on our website www.animalcaresociety.org!

3/24/2021- Winnie, Labrador Retriever & Pointer Mix

*Not suited for an apartment, must have structural fence* *No other animals*
Winnie came to The Animal Care Society from a rural shelter in Tennessee. She has quickly become a staff favorite! She is just absolutely gorgeous and loves people. She does not appear to like other dogs though. Winnie is also not yet housebroken so she will need a patient adopter who has the time to work with her. If Winnie sounds like the right fit for you, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application!

3/17/2021- Ginger, German Shepherd & Boxer Mix

*Not suited for an apartment, fenced yard required*
Ginger came to The Animal Care Society when she was turned in as a stray to a rural shelter in Tennessee. We drove down and picked her up along with several other dogs, so they could all have a better chance at finding a forever home. Ginger is a gorgeous, unique mix of a dog. This girl will turn heads for sure. Since being here, we’ve learned that Ginger isn’t a huge fan of other dogs. She tends to react negatively if a dog walks past her kennel. This could potentially be an issue that is only present in the shelter environment, but to be safe, she should go to a home with no other dogs. Ginger is super people friendly though, she loves attention from her humans. One of her favorite things to do is chew on bones, it easily keeps her entertained. She absolutely loves playing fetch and is very good at it. Ginger does not have great leash manners yet, so she needs to go to a home with a fenced-in backyard. If you would like to meet Ginger, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to fill out an application!

3/10/2021- Hunter & Lilly

Hunter and his sister Lilly came to The Animal Care Society when their owner’s new baby became allergic to them. They are both 6-7 years old and front declawed. Hunter is the more outgoing one of the two, while Lilly is more reserved. Hunter’s favorite thing to do is head-boop you to get your attention. He loves to sit in your lap and be petted. Hunter and Lilly don’t necessarily have to be adopted together, but they have lived with each other their entire lives, so they would be a great choice if you are looking to adopt two cats. If you are interested in meeting Hunter, please submit an application on our website www.animalcaresociety.org!

3/3/21- Gucci, Labrador Retriever Mix
ONLY AVAILABLE TO RESIDENTS THAT LIVE WITHIN 60 MILES OF THE SHELTER. NO APARTMENTS. MUST HAVE STRUCTURALLY FENCED IN YARDS, ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS**

Gucci and her siblings came to The Animal Care Society after they found themselves in an overcrowded rural shelter. The entire litter is absolutely adorable. They appear to be lab mixes and will most likely be large dogs once fully grown. Before applying, make sure you are ready to take on the big commitment that is raising a puppy. They are not yet housebroken or crate trained. They will need someone to teach them basic commands and just overall manners. They are currently about 9-10 weeks old. If you are interested in adopting, please submit an application on our website www.animalcaresociety.org.

2/24/21- Freddy, Domestic Long Hair Mix

Freddy is one goofy boy! Freddy was here when he was a kitten and was quickly adopted. However, he was a little too much of a wild boy for his adopter. Freddy likes constant attention and someone that is always ready to play with him. He’s very curious and likes to climb on top of things and explore. His previous adopter said he does have a tendency to “stalk” when he plays, and will sometimes jump out when you least expect it. He will use his claws and teeth to play so it’s important to tire him out with lots of toys and stimulation throughout the day. To keep Freddy entertained, he needs to go to a home with another cat. Freddy is a long hair cat with a tendency to get matted, so he will need regular brushings. If you are interested in meeting him, please fill out an application on our website, www.animalcaresociety.org.

ADOPTED! 2/17/21- Theo

**ONLY AVAILABLE TO RESIDENTS THAT LIVE WITHIN 60 MILES OF THE SHELTER. MUST HAVE FENCED IN YARDS, ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS**

Meet and greets are by APPOINTMENT ONLY and you must have an APPROVED application on file before scheduling an appointment.

Theo (previously named Icarus) was born here in October 2020. He was adopted in January but unfortunately, with their new job, they no longer had time to care for him. Theo will be a large breed dog once fully grown. He is working on his housebreaking but he will still need some help. If you are interested in adopting Theo, please head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to submit an application! Primary Color: Brown Secondary Color: Black Age: 0yrs 3mths 3wks I am available for adoption at the Animal Care Society.

2/10/21- Miami, Shar-Pei & Labrador Mix
Introducing Miami! Miami is a one-year-old sharpei/labrador mix. She was surrendered to The Animal Care Society by her previous owners because she was too much for their small senior dog. Miami likes to play rough so if she goes to a home with other dogs, they will need to be able to keep up with her. She is very strong and doesn’t have great leash manners, so she needs a home with a fenced-in yard. She also loves to play with toys and chew on bones. If you are interested in meeting Miami, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org and submit an application.

2/3/21- Poptart- Boston Terrier & Chihuahua Mix

Poptart came to The Animal Care Society from an overcrowded rural shelter. He was just skin and bones when we got him. We are still working on putting weight on him but he has made a lot of progress so far. We aren’t sure what all Poptart went through before coming here, but it has left him with some emotional scars. He is very scared of everything and everyone around him. You can tell that he wants so badly to come up to you for affection, but he is just too nervous. We have learned that when he’s alone he can be somewhat destructive. This could change once he’s in a home but we recommend that he goes into a crate when no one is around to supervise him. Poptart needs to go to a quiet home with a fenced-in yard. Because of his nervousness, he cannot go to a home with children. He seems to enjoy the company of other dogs, but he will steal food or treats from them which could end up causing an unwanted altercation, so he would need to be fed separately from other animals. Poptart needs someone to show him that whatever has happened to him in the past, is behind him. If you are interested in adopting Poptart, please put in an application on our website www.animalcaresociety.org.

1/27/21- Rocky- Domestic Short Hair Mix

Rocky came to The Animal Care Society from a rural high kill shelter where his chances of being adopted were slim to none. Despite his rough start at life, he is nothing but energetic, playful, and sweet. He loves nothing more than attention from humans. He also really enjoys the company of other cats. If you are interested in potentially adopting Rocky, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

ADOPTED! 1/19/21- Dasha, Boxer & Hound Mix
Dasha came to The Animal Care Society back in October, heavily pregnant. After a couple of weeks of being here, she gave birth to 11 beautiful puppies. That’s right, 11! While she was a wonderful mother, she was very happy when they were old enough to be weaned. This mama was exhausted! Dasha’s previous owners told us that she gets along well with other dogs and is housebroken. She not only knows basic commands, she even knows some tricks! We think Dasha is around 2 years old, and possibly a boxer/hound mix. Dasha likes to play with other dogs but tends to be dominant so she would need to be with another dog who is okay with that playstyle. She is a little too focused on cats, however, so she would do best in a home without them. If you are interested in meeting Dasha, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to fill out an application!

ADOPTED! 1/14/21- Lola, Hound Mix

Lola has had a pretty interesting past. We’re not quite sure how many homes she has been in, in her three short years on this earth. She came to us after being in a home for just a couple of days that didn’t work out. Turns out she thinks guinea pigs are snacks! This person got her from another person and suspected that she wasn’t cared for very well. We’re unsure how long that person had her, but we do know that they had gotten her from another home prior to that. Her most recent owner brought her to us in hopes that we could find Lola’s FOREVER home. Lola would do best with an active family that would be willing to take her on walks, which is one of her favorite things to do. She has a pretty loud hound bark, so an apartment would not be best for her. Due to her prey drive, she should go to a home without cats or other small critters.
If you are interested in giving Lola the forever home that she deserves, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to fill out an application!

1/6/21-  Apollo, his mother Dasha & his 10 brothers & sisters, all listed at www.animalcaresociety.org  ,Boxer & Labrador Retriever Mix

This is Apollo. He’s one of 11 puppies in his litter! They’ve had back to back illnesses and they are finally cleared to be adopted! 

Apollo and his 10 brothers and sisters were born here in the shelter on October 19th after their mother was surrendered pregnant. They are now ready to find their forever homes! These puppies will be large breed dogs that need to go to experienced homes that are ready to take on the task of raising a new pup. If you are interested in meeting one of them, please put in an application on our website www.animalcaresociety.org.

12/16/20- Mr. Whiskers, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Mr. Whiskers came to the Animal Care Society with a group of other cats. Nervous of the numerous cats, it took a while for him to truly shine. Now more comfortable with the staff, volunteers, and other feline companions, Mr. Whiskers is a true sweetheart. ACS staff soon learned that he most enjoys having his cheek rubbed or back scratched. When he’s happy, he’s belly-up! It was difficult taking a picture of this charming fellow because he is either on his back, belly wide open, or hanging up high in the room. While the photos were difficult, it is not difficult to see why ACS staff love Mr. Whiskers. He enjoys companionship and watching the dogs and people through the windows. ACS has a bird feeder outside of the window, which captivates Mr. Whiskers for hours. If you are interested in a cat who has an independent streak, but still enjoys being nearby, Mr. Whiskers is your guy! Apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

 

12/9/20- Twiggy, Beagle Mix

Twiggy arrived at The Animal Care Society after she was found abandoned on someone’s property. Twiggy is one of the friendliest pups around. We believe she’s around 10 months old and has a very petite figure. She looks as if she might be part beagle, chihuahua, and dachshund. Twiggy gets very excited when she sees you coming her way, she also seems to enjoy being held. Twiggy is not yet housebroken so that is something that her adopters will have to continue working on with her.
If you are interested in meeting Twiggy, please fill out an application on our website, www.animalcaresociety.org. Primary Color: Black Secondary Color: Tan Age: 0yrs 10mths 1wks I am available for adoption at the Animal Care Society.

12/2/20- Jasmine, Domestic Short Hair
Jasmine came to The Animal Care Society when a kind citizen found her wandering the streets looking for attention. Jasmine had a terrible flea infestation and was losing her hair because of it. With no luck finding the owners of this sweet kitty, she was brought here to find her forever family. After being treated for the fleas, Jasmine’s itchiness was relieved and she started growing her hair back in no time. One thing that we have learned about Jasmine, is that she loves to fetch! If you throw a toy for her, she will chase and retrieve it like a dog. Jasmine seems to not mind other cats, but we are unsure about dogs at this time. We believe she is around 10 months old and will most likely stay on the petite side for a kitty. Jasmine is very sweet and loves to be petted and held. If she sounds like the right match for your family, head over to our website www.animalcaresociety.org to fill out an application.

11/25/20- Dolly, Boxer & Hound Mix
WILL REQUIRE A 6 FOOT FENCE!

Cece’s and Dolly’s previous owner was unable to properly care for the two of them. He adopted them from a woman in rural Kentucky where he was told that the sisters were “pure-bred” Boxers. Although it was obvious to ACS staff at first glance that the two girls were not pure-breeds, it is likely that they have Boxer in them. Their owner did not have the time or ability to properly care for them. While at work or otherwise away from home, he kept the girls in an outdoor kennel or run. They can climb a four-foot fence easily, thus he kept them in a six-foot kennel. At night, he would bring them inside the house. Both Dolly and Cece have not received training and will need work to learn their obedience skills. As such, ACS will look for an adopter prepared for the challenge of house-training, obedience training, and able to provide a life where the girls are not housed outdoors. They are both well behaved around cats. *Cece has been adopted, but Dolly is still waiting for her forever family to come along. If you are interested in Dolly, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org! 

11/18/20- Ashe, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Cole and Ashe have never truly had a home. Born from a stray mother, they were brought in and cared for by a good samaritan. While this woman well-socialized them and took wonderful care of them, they were never home. She already had several cats, dogs, and children, and as such could not raise more into adulthood. Once they were old enough, she began the search for their new homes. She felt that ACS was the best opportunity for them to find a safe and loving home, and thus they arrived at the shelter.

Since their arrival, the kittens have been nothing but sweet. Both call out when they want attention, so the staff hears their call nearly all day long. Both cats truly enjoy the company of another person, as well as each other. It is highly likely that they will do well in a home with another cat (or if you would be so kind as to adopt them together!). Neither one seems to be a “lap” cat; however, they definitely enjoy having someone around to show off their acrobatics.

 

ADOPTED! 11/11/20- Izzie, Whippet Mix
Izzie was adopted from The Animal Care Society several years ago as a young pup. She lived in a loving home but unfortunately due to schedule changes, they were no longer able to care for her. According to her previous owners, Izzie is well mannered, housebroken and gets along with children. She doesn’t enjoy the company of cats, however. Last year, Izzie was diagnosed with Addison’s disease. This means that her adrenal glands no longer produce enough steroids to keep her organs happy. The good thing is, this can be managed with an inexpensive pill that she takes daily. While the disease is not curable, she can live a long, normal life with her medication. She recently had bloodwork ran at the vet’s office and they said she is doing excellent. Izzie is a very, very sweet dog, that wants nothing more than to please her people. Her favorite toy is her lamb chop stuffed animal, she likes to carry that around everywhere she goes. She also enjoys going on walks and playing fetch. If Izzie sounds like the right fit for you, head over to www.animalcaresociety.org to fill out an application!

11/4/20- Priscilla, Hound Mix

Sweet, spunky Priscilla came to The Animal Care Society from another rural shelter where her chances of finding her forever home were slim. This pup is just waiting for her day to come where she gets endless snuggles and treats for being the best girl. Priscilla is approximately 3 months old and appears to be a hound mix. Since she is so young, she will need a patient owner that is willing to work with her on potty training and basic manners. We think she would do well with another dog in the house to show her the ropes.
If you are interested in adopting this busy-bee, apply online today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

10/28/20- Mac, Labrador Retriever

Mac was transferred to The Animal Care Society from another rural shelter, in hopes that we could find a great home for him. Upon arrival, Mac was nervous about his new surroundings but quickly came to realize, this place isn’t so bad! He arrived with his brother who looks almost identical to him. They have remained best friends during their stay here and would love to go to a home together, but they would also do okay going separately. Mac is still young, so he’s very high energy and still working on his manners. It appears as if he’d never been leash walked before coming here so a fenced in yard would be best for him. It also needs to be at least 6 feet tall, as this boy can jump! We believe Mac is around 9 months old and about 40 pounds. Mac will need to be neutered before going to his forever home, but if you are interested in him, go ahead and submit an application at www.animalcaresociety.org!

10/21/20- Ganon, Siamese Mix

Ganon is one of 7 kittens born to a chocolate point siamese. Not one of the kittens looks anything like their mother. The litter is a variety of colors from orange tabby to brown squirrel hair tabby. Although they may not look like Siamese, some do seem to be talkers.

Ganon is an adorable kitten with typical kitten behavior. This play behavior consists of stalking, pouncing, jumping, biting, and clawing. Because of these normal behaviors, we do not adopt to homes with children under age 5 unless another kitten is in the home.// Because the kittens are not spayed or neutered, they can only be adopted to the residence of Jefferson County

10/14/20- Bella, Siamese Mix
 Bella is a beautiful chocolate point siamese who was owner surrendered pregnant. She was living both in and outdoors, which is how she got pregnant. Siamese cats are loving and affectionate. They are loyal and are highly intelligent and curious. They can also be energetic and playful.
We have noticed that Bella hisses and swipes at larger dogs, so she should not go to a home with big dogs.

If you are interested in Bella, please fill out an application at animalcaresociety.org!

ADOPTED! 10/7/20- Reeses, Chihuahu & Dachshund Mix

Owner surrenders, the “Candy” puppies were brought to ACS when their parents had an unexpected litter. With nine puppies in total, the owners were not prepared to handle both parents AND the large litter. With a Chihuahua mix mother and a Yorki/Dachshund father, these puppies are incredibly cute. While ACS believes that adopting nine of them would be too much, interested parties may choose to adopt a pair. After all, they’re just so cute!

With their scruffy, dappled, brown or black and tan and tiny appearance, it is sure to be a madhouse at ACS when these puppies become available. Because they cannot be spayed/neutered for several months (boys until November 2020, girls until January 2021), they are restricted to Jefferson County, KY residents. There are no exceptions to this rule. They will also need a fenced yard because they are still in the process of their shots. Dog parks and other public areas are NOT acceptable.

9/30/20- Monty, Domestic Short Hair


Monty came to the Animal Care Society from a high-kill rural shelter much like many of the animals at ACS. Afraid of the busy shelter life, it took days for the staff to see the true personality of this wonderful kittens. As a young cat, he has a playful bliss once he came out of his shell. Monty will play hard-to-get while he is warming up to a new person. He is a truly sweet cat and will be a great addition to anyone’s family. If you are interested in Monty, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

9/23/20- Airi, Boston Terrier Mix

Arriving at ACS without any information from a high-kill rural shelter, Airi was a complete mystery to the staff. Approximately two years of age, it is likely that she had a previous owner. Extremely sweet, Airi is always excited to see the ACS staff. Her kennel is kept neat, although we cannot say that she is house-trained.

Airi appears to have some Boston Terrier in her. She is definitely not a pure-bred as she weighs more than a Boston should, weighing around 30 pounds. Bostons are known to be easier to groom compared to other terriers, and have a goofy and curious personality which tends to get them into trouble. They tend to be very playful and have a high energy level for a smaller breed. However, these are companion animals which prefer to be with their person despite their chaotic tendencies (i.e. zoomies, chasing their stubby tail in circles). Airi might show some of these traits with her adopters; she certainly has enjoyed snuggling with the ACS staff as well as leaping in joy when someone enters her kennel.

Bostons are very intelligent, and combined with a muscular body, they can be quite interesting to watch as they goof off. Airi might have Boston Terrier as part of her breed mixture, but she certainly has proven to be an entertaining companion during her time at ACS. Airi will be spayed before her adoption. If you are interested in her, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

ADOPTED! 9/16/20- Slick, Labrador Retriever Mix

!!!JEFFERSON COUNTY, KY RESIDENTS ONLY!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!
FENCED YARD IS REQUIRED!

Coco and Slick were brought to ACS from rural Kentucky. Soon after their arrival, both broke with parvovirus and were rushed to the vet for emergency care. Fortunately, both survived and returned to the shelter within days of their initial treatment. Now fully recovered, both siblings are ready to find their forever homes.

It is a guess that these two puppies are mixed with Labrador Retriever. Without information on their exact DNA, their mother was described to ACS as a Lab. If they are truly a Lab, their adopters should expect these two dogs to behave like puppies until they are three years of age. Labs are very friendly and intelligent. Because of their temperaments, they are trained and used as service and emotional support dogs commonly. While these two puppies are likely mixed with unknown breeds, they have the energetic and playful nature of the Labs as well as some physical traits.

Because neither Coco nor Slick is altered, they are restricted to Jefferson County, KY residents ONLY. Coco cannot be neutered until October 2020 and Slick cannot be spayed until December 2020. Applications from non-Jefferson County, KY residents will NOT be accepted until these puppies are altered following the months of either October or December.

Because these puppies are still in the process of their shots, their adopters MUST have a fenced yard to provide them with a safe place to learn house training. Dog parks and other public options are not acceptable. This is to prevent the exposure of deadly diseases other than parvovirus.

If you are interested in either Coco or Slick (or both!), and live in Jefferson County, KY with a fenced yard, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

9/9/20- Charm, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Named for her charming personality, Charm came to the Animal Care Society as a transfer from a rural high-kill shelter, along with her three kittens (who all found homes!). Now that her three babies are grown and off to homes of their own, Charm is ready to find one for herself. Charm loves to receive pettings and attention, and despite being a mother, she is still very much a kitten herself. Charm has very obviously been through a tough background, having had a litter at such a young age. While she cannot share with us her experiences, she enjoys the toys and companionship we give her on a daily basis. If you are interested in Charm, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

9/2/20- Rainy, Dalmation

!!! JEFFERSON COUNTY RESIDENTS ONLY !!! NO EXCEPTIONS

Transferred from a high-kill rural shelter, Rainy’s origins are a complete mystery, as well as her breed mixture. She appears to have personality traits of a Dalmation, with looks similar to a Hound or sight dog. She is energetic, LOVES her toys, and will need training for her bark. While she hasn’t quite figured out how to calm down in order to snuggle, she enjoys companionship and play sessions. Oh, and did we mention that she loves to give kisses?

This is a dog who would not be well suited for an apartment because of her bark. We do not see signs of separation anxiety, instead, she appears to be figuring out the world as a puppy might while talking at every opportunity. Rainy is a young puppy with a lot of love to give who will need the typical puppy training all young dogs get. From what we have seen, she is begging for the attention and would enjoy any training session with her adopter.

She is restricted to Jefferson County, KY residents only because she is not yet altered. She cannot be spayed until October 2020. At no time before October 2020 will she be altered or available to non-Jefferson County, KY residents. There are no exceptions to this rule. She will also need a fenced yard as she hasn’t yet finished her shots. She cannot visit public spaces for risk of deadly diseases such as parvo. Because of this, the fence is also not an exception.

If you have a fenced yard and live in Jefferson County, KY, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

8/26/20- Elvis, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Remember little Elton? Elvis is from the same litter of kittens, all named after singers starting with the Letter “E”. While Elton and his other siblings have been adopted, Elvis HAS NOT left the building. But despite being at The Animal Care Society since he was 2 weeks old, 4-month-old Elvis isn’t blue! As you can see, he’s energetic and playful, and like a true Superstar is not shy when the cameras come out! You Can’t Help Falling In Love with Elvis’ beautifully marked Gray Tabby coat – it’s a real show-stopper! And while this Elvis doesn’t have Blue Suede Shoes, he does have sweet little white paws! While the friendly staff makes his stay at ACS far from a Heartbreak Hotel, Elvis would still like to move to his furever home, just like his litter-mates have. If you think this hunk-a-hunk-a purring love is the one for you, please fill out an application at http://animalcaresociety.org/! It’s Now Or Never!

 

8/19/20- Scout, German Shepard Mix
!!! No children under 12 !!! STRUCTURAL FENCE REQUIRED!

Scout was surrendered to a high-kill rural shelter when his owner was concerned about how the large dog would do with a child on the way. Already gentle with the man’s 4-year-old daughter, the only real issue was with Scout knocking the child down simply due to his size and goofy personality. Scout received no training from his previous owner. However, since joining the ACS shelter, Scout was quick to learn to sit. It was obvious that Scout was used to being yelled at: he only listened when you yelled. Since working with Scout, he has become more used to a quieter voice. However, as with the Shepherd, an assertive voice is always required.

While there has not been a DNA test on Scout, it has been theorized that he could be a pure-bred Shepherd. He stands weighing 65-70 pounds; built of pure muscle and intellect. Scout is a definite companion animal, whining when left alone or not given attention. Simply put, Scout’s favorite spot is next to you! The ACS staff do not believe that it will be difficult to train Scout and that with training he will become a loyal member of the household.

Scout will require room to run freely as well as multiple walks a day in order to keep in physical shape. As such, a structurally fenced yard (no electric fences) is essential and required without exception. It is necessary for him to be trained and socialized in order to prevent destructive or aggressive tendencies, as per all German Shepherds. Frequent brushing will be required due to his coat. The Shepherd breed has a tendency not to get along with cats unless raised with them; as such, we do not recommend Scout to a home with cats. Any children or other dogs should expect to be nipped per the herding breed. He does have a habit of nipping when he becomes excited.

Scout was recently adopted through our shelter and returned. He is very friendly and loving with the children in the home. However, that is not the case with children that he is not familiar with. ACS will NOT adopt him into a home with children younger than 12, and the owners must understand that he can NOT be around younger children. His previous owners recommended that he have an owner with training experience because he enjoys training and seeks that relationship with his owner. They also noticed that he will bark at other dogs, although he got along well with the two dogs in their home. \\\ SCOUT IS SPONSORED BY OUR FRIENDS AT OLDFATHER LAW FIRM THRU DECEMBER 2020!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the German Shepherd breed restrictions at apartments and Scout’s size, we will not adopt Scout to apartments. Scout will require a structural fenced-in yard in order to get adequate exercise, and it is recommended that he be walked several times a day. Training and socialization are also a MUST for any Shepherd. 

8/12/20- Figaro, Domestic Short Hair Mix

If you are looking for an independent wallflower, this ain’t it! Figaro is an “all about you” type of cat. He enjoys rubbing his head on us while we clean and getting in the way while we medicate other cats. No matter what we are doing, Figaro is there! He’s a gorgeous sweetheart with a need for people. Social distancing? Personal space? Not with this cat! He has a tendency to do the same with a few of his feline roommates, who are not as accepting of his playful and sweet nature as the staff. ACS staff have determined that he is NOT good with dogs, so he will need a home without canine siblings. If you are interested in this sociable young cat, please apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org! Primary Color: Brown Tiger Secondary Color: White Age: 1yrs 5mths 1wks Animal has been Neutered I am available for adoption at the Animal Care Society.

8/5/20- Chance, Beagle & Spaniel Mix

Transferred from a rural farm to the Animal Care Society, it was immediately clear that their previous owner never worked with these three puppies. ACS was supposed to get more than three; however, the transport could only catch these three. Clearly unsocialized and terrified, as well as filthy, the ACS staff were quick to begin working with the young puppies. Chance came out of his shell after a few weeks of work, while the other two, Caleb and Cody, are still increasing their confidence daily. Large strides have been made since their arrival, including the discovery of their bark, and for Chance, his love for the belly-rub. There is still quite a journey left for these three.

Their owners must be patient and nurturing, as these puppies need a safe and encouraging environment to grow. They will require a fenced yard because they are still in the process of their shots, as well as they lack the confidence to walk on a leash. There are no exceptions to the requirement of a fenced yard. They will be neutered before they can go home. ACS staff are working to schedule their neuters as soon as they are able.

No one can meet these puppies without a pre-approved application through the Animal Care Society. Applications can be submitted through our website at www.animalcaresociety.org Once the application is submitted, ACS staff will begin to work on the application. When the application process is ready, we will call to set up a meet and greet.

7/29/20- ACS Update!

Sadly, today’s Wiggle Wednesday bears bad news, BUT we hope to find the silver lining in this cloud!

Like SO MANY Kentuckiana businesses and organizations, The Animal Care Society has been hit by Covid-19 – a volunteer tested positive. Following safety protocols, ACS has closed its doors to the public for at least 2 weeks.
BUT…
That doesn’t mean that the shelter stops! The many animals there still require care, and donations are needed! ACS is in need of donations; especially cleaning supplies. Your help and donations are what will help ensure that they can open back up as soon as possible!
Cleaning supply donations needed:
Bleach
Fabuloso Multi-Purpose Cleaner
Clorox Wipes
The furbabies are in need of:
Kitty Litter
Science Diet Small Bites Puppy Food

Science Diet Small Bites Adult Food

Donations can be dropped off outside the door (no contact!) at
The Animal Care Society
12207 Westport Road
Louisville, KY 40245
If you would like to notify them that you have dropped something off, or if you need a receipt for your records, please call 502-426-6303
Our 106.9 Play family has been wonderful about finding furever homes for so many ACS friends – let’s join together to take care of them during this time until they can safely meet their new families!

7/22/20- November, Miniature Pinscher & Terrier Mix
It’s a real mystery of how this many puppies look like so many dog breeds. Terrier, Miniature Pinscher, Retriever, Husky? With a litter of 10 puppies with such a variety, there’s a puppy for everyone’s tastes! Their breed mixture is an absolute mystery since ACS does not know about the parents involved, so their future size and needs are a mystery. Their age is an estimation as well as their breeds: these puppies arrived at the shelter with ZERO information on them from another shelter. What we do know is that these puppies are a sweet, cuddly, and playful bunch.

Because they are still in the process of their shots, they will require a fenced yard for them to potty safely. Dog parks are not an acceptable location, nor is leash walking in public areas. Fences are required without exception. Due to their shots being in process, we are not allowing visits without a completed application. Due to COVID-19, no person may enter the shelter without having an application worked by the ACS staff. An appointment will be scheduled after the application process is completed.

In addition, we are not adopting this litter to non-Jefferson County residents. Their spays and neuters can only be enforced through Louisville Metro. No exceptions are made. If you live in Jefferson County, KY, you may apply for these dogs. The boys cannot be neutered until August 2020 and the girls cannot be spayed until October 2020. At no time before their alterations will non-Jefferson County resident applications be accepted. Again, no exceptions will be made.

 

 

7/15/20- Anabelle, Chihuahua Mix
NO CHILDREN! WILL REQUIRE A FENCE!

If you like big mutts, this might not be the dog for you! TINY Anabelle appears to be a long-haired Chihuahua weighing around 4 pounds. When she arrived at the Animal Care Society shelter as a transfer from a high-kill rural shelter, she was shaking. We soon discovered that the shaking was because she was simply too excited to get attention. Anabelle LOVES to be held and whines when left alone. Because she was transferred without any information, her age was a complete guess. After visiting a vet, their opinion was that she is only two years of age. For a dog who can live up to twenty years, she’s still got quite a long life ahead of her!

Anabelle keeps her kennel spotless. While she does potty inside her kennel (due to her lack of vaccines, we weren’t able to give her more options), she goes strictly on the paper. She’s not really one to play with her toys; at least, whenever we are near, she seems more focused on us. She did come to the shelter with some hair loss and she’s working on growing it back. This poor girl came from a rough situation and is healing. Anabelle needs a home where she will continue to heal, along with feel the love that she has clearly lacked. If you are interested in Anabelle, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

7/8/20- July, Miniature Pinscher & Terrier Mix

It’s a real mystery of how this many puppies look like so many dog breeds. Terrier, Miniature Pinscher, Retriever, Husky? With a litter of 10 puppies with such a variety, there’s a puppy for everyone’s tastes!

Primary Color: Brown Tiger Secondary Color: White Age: 1yrs 3mths 3wks Animal has been Neutered I am available for adoption at the Animal Care Society.

ADOPTED! 6/17/20- Rubzy, Pomeranian & Siberian Husky Mix
Guess what?! Rubzy has found her fur-ever home! Whoever thought to combine a Husky with a Pomeranian was an evil genius. A bundle of spastic energy and white fur, Rubzy is a prime example of how adorable and chaotic this breed mixture can be. Following her adoption to her first owner, she jumped off of the bed and broke her leg. This dog is wild! The owner was told to confine Rubzy to a crate as she healed, and this puppy was NOT happy with this decision! As a diva who enjoys the attention of others, she barked relentlessly when left alone, regardless of the crate. She needs a LOT of exercise and the prescribed confinement put a damper on her plans. Since joining us at our shelter, we do believe that she is house-broken and will bark to let you know when she’s ready to go. She also enjoys belly-rubs wherever she is able to get them, and would greatly appreciate an owner willing to give her a lifetime supply.

Rubzy was surrendered to the Animal Care Society when her owner was threatened eviction. Now that she is healed, she is ready to find a home where she is free to get both the exercise she needs and the attention. Rubzy will need a LOT of exercise, as well as training, in order to manage her puppy destructive behaviors and her high energy level. Her owner MUST be an active person ready to take on the challenge of this fluffy lightning bolt. Trust us, this girl can squeeze passed you as quick as lightning even in a cast!

Please research the breed mixture prior to applying, and pay extra attention to the restrictions below!! If you are interested in adopting Rubzy and fit the restrictions below, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

PLEASE NOTE: Rubzy will have several restrictions in order to make sure that she finds the best home possible for her needs. She must go to a home with a fenced-in yard. She will not be adopted to ANY apartments because she will bark when left alone. As her previous owner can attest, this is not an apartment dog. Her owner MUST be an active person in order to fit her exercise needs. This is a busy dog, and her owner must be someone active enough to go on hikes, runs, or similar exercises on a routine basis.

ALSO, since she is not spayed, we will NOT accept applications from non-Jefferson County, KY residents. If she is not adopted by the month of August, ACS will have her spayed, and this restriction will be removed. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE!

ADOPTED! 6/10/20- Elton, Domestic Short Hair Mix
Elton has been adopted! Named after singers with the name “E,” these kittens certainly have personalities to match their famous namesakes. Energetic and playful, the kittens are sure to catch your attention on stage! The litter was transferred from a high-kill rural shelter, where their previous owner was unprepared for a litter of kittens. Arriving at the shelter at only two weeks of age, they went into foster care. Their foster mom named them for their “louder than life” personalities and is excited for them to find homes. Now that they are back at the shelter, the staff at the Animal Care Society are excited as well for them to find their forever homes. If you are interested in them and live in Jefferson County, KY, apply today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

PLEASE NOTE: These kittens are not yet spayed or neutered. As such, they are limited to Jefferson County, KY residents ONLY unless they are not adopted prior to their alterations. The girl (Ella) cannot be spayed until October 2020 and the boys cannot be neutered until August 2020. No applications from non-Jefferson County, KY residents will be accepted until they are altered during those months. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.

ADOPTED! 6/3/20- Loulabel, Shepard Mix
We’re excited to update you that Loulabel has found her fur-ever home! Loulabel was transferred to the Animal Care Society from a rural high-kill shelter. Her owner surrendered her when they could not work with her high energy level. It was clear to the ACS staff that the owner had not worked with the young Shepherd mix. Since joining the ACS shelter, Loulabel learned to sit for her food. Once someone works with her, ACS staff believes that Loulabel will become a truly wonderful dog. She enjoys the hustle and bustle of daily shelter life with a smile.

Loulabel is obviously not a pure-bred Shepherd. Closer to 40 pounds than the German Shepherd 75 pounds, Loulabel does have a similar coat length and feel to the Shepherd. As such, she will need frequent brushing in order to prevent matting. She did learn how to sit quickly, and the ACS staff believes that she will catch on quickly to structured training sessions. Loulabel is eager to please, which makes her a wonderful companion and easier to train.

PLEASE NOTE: Loulabel is not yet spayed. We will be spaying her prior to adoption. If interested, please apply for her at www.animalcaresociety.org


5/27/20- Harlow, Domestic Medium Hair Mix


Harlow came to the Animal Care Society from a rural high-kill shelter while heavily pregnant. Soon after joining the care of one of ACS’s long-time foster’s, she gave birth to five beautiful kittens. The foster mom observed that this was not Harlow’s first litter, although Harlow behaves like a kitten herself. Harlow enjoys to play with her toys as much as her own children! Harlow also enjoys a good petting session and is a wonderful all-around cat. Now that Harlow’s kittens are old enough to find their own forever homes, Harlow is ready to find her own. ACS will have Harlow spayed before she can go home, but they are taking applications now! Primary Color: Tabby Secondary Color: White Age: 1yrs 8mths 3wks

5/20/20- Gracie Jo & Sophie, Domestic Short Hair Mix


From a feral mother, Gracie Jo and Sophie were taken in by a loving woman with hopes to find them a better home than the perilous outdoors. Once they were old enough, she brought the two sisters to the Animal Care Society to find their furever homes. Well-socialized and sweet, these two beautiful kittens made themselves at home at the ACS shelter. Between the calico (Gracie Jo) and tabby (Sophie), ACS staff can only guess as to how beautiful their mother was. Since getting to know the kittens, ACS staff have seen nothing but sweet, energetic and playful sides to these two wonderful young cats. If you are interested in Sophie and/or Gracie Jo, and live in Jefferson County, KY, apply for them today at www.animalcaresociety.org!

PLEASE READ: Because Sophie and Gracie Jo cannot be spayed until September 2020, their adoptions are restricted to Jefferson County, KY residents ONLY. We will not accept applications outside of Jefferson County, KY until they have been spayed (September 2020 or later). There are no exceptions.

ADOPTED! 5/13/20- George, Labrador Retriever & Shepard Mix

Transferred to the Animal Care Society from a rural high-kill shelter, the staff has wondered if George is part horse or moose. With his large head and long legs, George has the power to knock you off your feet when he is playing. George was an owner surrender, and transferred between two shelters prior to coming to ACS. He is estimated to be a Lab/Shepherd mix, and since he has Labrador Retriever in him, George is still very much a puppy. Labrador Retrievers do not get out of their puppy phase until they are three years old. Since George is mixed, there is a chance that this might happen before the age of three.

George is a large puppy, and definitely needs to work on his leash manners. He does not seem to understand his size, and will need to learn impulse control. While ACS was not given any information on him or his previous owner, it is clear that the owner did not work with him when he was young. George has a wonderful personality with a desire for play as well as pleasing. He believes that he is a lap dog despite his wild nature and enjoys the companionship of others. Once trained, the staff at ACS believe that George will be a loyal companion who will provide endless amounts of entertainment. While at our shelter, the ACS staff did discover that George is NOT cat friendly, and will NOT go to a home with cats or small animals.

PLEASE READ…George does not have any training on walking on a leash. As such, ACS is requiring that George go to a home with a fenced-in yard.

5/6/20- Dewey,  Domestic Short Hair & Russian Blue Mix
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.

Based on his time here, Dewey does best in a space without other cats. This could be because we have multiple cats within a small space. Due to his time here, we would recommend a home with no cats or one other cat at the most. We have learned that Dewey is very affectionate and sweet, with a powerful purr and desire to play. Dewey is often seen watching birds out the window, and enjoys his time with toy mice and springs. Dewey likes to be petted on his head, back and sides but NOT his belly. He also doesn’t like veterinarians. 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.

ADOPTED! 4/29/20- Pawla Abdul, Hound Mix

We’re excited to say that Pawla Abdul has found her fur-ever home! Pawla Abdul is a people-friendly, smart, energetic and powerful young dog that was transferred to ACS from a rural-county shelter. We noticed soon after she arrived that Pawla has a high prey-drive, and as such cannot go to a home with another animal. She becomes aggressive with other dogs, and due to her prey-drive, cannot be trusted with cats. Because she was a stray, we weren’t given much information about Pawla and can’t say with certainty whether or not she is house-trained. During her time at the shelter, she has shown us that she prefers to use the restroom outside. 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 another dog or creature such as a squirrel. 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. Pawla has the intellect to make training easy, and the proof was through her ability to quickly learn our routine at ACS. Pawla loves to please her owner except when you want her to come in. She does love the outside yard. She also loves to chase the tennis ball, and knows when you are trying to trick her. She is one smart cookie! She will be a wonderful challenge with her quick wit, and a delight because of her lovable and playful nature. If you don’t mind a dog that has a few ‘ruff’ edges, then Pawla just might be the right dog for you! 

ADOPTED! 4/22/20- Gabby, Domestic Long Hair Mix

We’re excited to say that Gabby has been adopted! Gabby was found behind a grocery store, and was raised by her owner for approximately 2 years before a dog in the house made the living situation unbearable. Her animal-loving owner wanted Gabby to find a better home, where she would be safe from cat-aggressive dogs. Thus, Gabby came to the Animal Care Society. Gabby was named after her gift for the gab. She loves to talk to you while playing and leaning against you. She is a majestic, beautiful cat who often becomes playful, especially after a laser light. She loves to be pet around the ears. While this large cat might be intimidating at first, all it takes is a second glance to see the full picture. This big softy can often be found in her “hutch” in her condo, her head poking out to watch the birds at the feeder. She might be meant for the more independent person, who desires snuggles on Gabby’s terms. But what cat isn’t like that! She is up-to-date on her shots, spayed, and an all-around wonderful cat. 

4/15/20- Gingy, Domestic Short Hair Mix

Looking for a serene little cat to keep your lap warm and heart full? Well, Gingy’s your gal! This sweet light orange tabby cat is estimated to be around 4 years old and she is the whole package! With those deep topaz-colored eyes, her beauty can’t be denied. And with her calm and gentle demeanor, she has purrsonality plus! Gingy coexists nicely with other cats but we don’t think she’d mind being the sole object of your affection! We have noticed that Gingy is quick to learn the ACS routine and easy to get along with any person who enters the room with her and the other cats. To meet Gingy and see if she steals your heart as quickly as she did ours, just stop by our shelter soon!

ADOPTED! 4/8/20- Poppy, Mixed Breed

We’re excited to update you that Poppy has been adopted! Poppy came to the Animal Care Society from a rural high-kill shelter, much like many of the animals at ACS. From what we gather, Poppy was an owner surrender at that rural shelter. The ACS staff has no idea why anyone would surrender sweet Poppy. Poppy goes “belly-up” every time someone enters her kennel, and she smiles widely with any attention. In fact, it is hard to get Poppy upright! Poppy seems to understand the sit command, and while we have not tested other tricks with her, she definitely acts house-trained at our shelter. Poppy keeps her kennel clean apart from playing with the occasional toy. The ACS staff have noticed that Poppy shows the signs of separation anxiety, and as such, she will need training and work in that area. Poppy whines when left alone for extended periods of time, and barks loudly when ignored. Her owner must understand that Poppy will disturb their neighbors when left alone, and make plans accordingly. Poppy is a young, affectionate dog with a lot of love and energy to provide to her furever home. While we do need to spay Poppy before she goes to her furever home, we are accepting applications for her now.

ADOPTED! 4/1/20- Ginny Sue, Labrador Retriever Mix
Ginny Sue 1

Ginny Sue has been adopted! Ginny Sue came to ACS as a terrified young Lab puppy. Much like her siblings, she was covered in ticks and had not been around strangers much. The staff were complete strangers to young Ginny Sue. It took longer for her to warm up to the routine of affection and care than her siblings, but after some much needed TLC, Ginny Sue was wagging her tail and goofing off with her siblings. She smiles and taps her toes when approached, and plays hide-and-seek. Ginny Sue has proven to be an intelligent dog as well, learning the routine quickly. The ACS staff easily fell in love with her sweet puppy pursonality and her beautiful coat. While she does take time to become comfortable with new people, her true purrsonality comes out with her siblings.

ADOPTED! 3/25/20- Chloey, Chihuahua Mix

Chloey has been adopted! Meet Chloey! Chloey came to us with her four small puppies from a bad situation. Her previous owner was in poor health and couldn’t take care of her the way she deserved. Due to the owner’s poor health, the home could be described as that of a hoarder’s. Chloey wasn’t given any vaccine or medical treatment, and became pregnant by another dog in the home. After taking Chloey in, we quickly learned that Chloey was full of love to give: love for her puppies, and love for her new caretakers. Chloey has been quite the snuggle-bug for the staff at the Animal Care Society, and they have truly enjoyed getting to know both her and her furbabies. Chloey has been a wonderful mother, attentive to their needs and protective to strangers. However, now that her furbabies are old enough to find a home, it is time for her to find a home for herself as well. CHLOEY IS SPONSORED THRU MARCH 2021 BY PALMER PRODUCTS CORP. Primary Color: Fawn Secondary Color: Black Weight: 18lbs Age: 3yrs 3mths 3wks Animal has been Spayed I am available for adoption at the Animal Care Society.

ADOPTED! 3/18/20- Madison, Great Pyrenees/Labrador Retriever Mix

Miss Madison has been adopted! Meet Madison! Madison is the mixture of a Great Pyrenees father and a Labrador Retriever mother. At 11 weeks old, Madison already weighed 12.3 pounds! This is one large puppy! Madison is quite the rambunctious puppy, with an affinity for cuddling as well as playing with her two siblings. While her two siblings cannot wait to run and overpower the ACS staff, Madison will wait politely until called. Unless she wants to play hard to get! This is a remarkable kind, goofy, and sweet-nature from a young puppy previously kept outdoors. PLEASE READ… Madison hasn’t finished her shots. To protect her health, an application must be worked prior to meeting her or her siblings. Please submit an application at www.animalcaresociety.org if you are interested in meeting her. After the ACS team works the application, they will be in contact with you to set up a meet and greet. ALSO, since she won’t be spayed until May 2020, we are only accepting applications from Jefferson County, KY residents AND those with a fully fenced-in yard.
