HSOC July PawPrints Newsletter
We need fosters!
Kitten season is in full swing, and we are in desperate need of foster homes. As always this time of the year, it's an explosion of cat babies. Lots and lots of them. And lots of people who find themselves unable to care for them turn to us. It doesn't take long for us to run out of room at our facility.
We are also helping with an awful hoarding situation of cats and kittens, and need fosters to help get these cats to safety. The owner moved from their home and left a large group of cats in the house with little food or water. By the time someone was able to get into the house, many of the cats were dead. The remaining cats were evicted outside by authorities and are emaciated and in need of TLC and medical care to become healthy and adoptable.
HSOC will take care of all supplies, vetting, and medicines(if needed).
If you're interested in helping out in either situation, visit our website and fill out the foster application, which you can find here.
If you have questions or would like more information, email or call us.

A happy adoption story
My husband Tom and I (Mary) decided we needed a cat closer to our kitten Autumns age and energy level, to befriend her as our two older cats weren’t enjoying her antics. We went to the Lucky Cat Cafe and that’s where we met Buddy. An 11 year old long-haired cat who would walk through the cafe talking to anyone who would notice, getting verbal hello’s to multiple loves and pettings in return. Buddy was kicked outside and abandoned by his owner. So many pets through no fault of their own are abandoned, mistreated, and some have had owners who have died. Adoption is a win-win situation for the pet and the new owners. Pets want the same thing we do- a home, family, routine and lots of love. As we all meld together as a family unit you see such appreciation paid with lots of kisses, purrs, wanting to sit by you or on you, it warms your heart and soul. We also met a short haired black cat named Johnson (now Shadow) who we knew would be perfect for Autumn, so we left with 2 cats to join the Nolan family.
As with all new pets, we have them checked out by our vet. It turns out that Buddy has an irregular heart beat which we were fortunate enough to learn so we could medicate him. His appetite and energy level has moderately increased. We are grateful to the Humane Society of Oldham County for saving Buddy and Shadow and giving us the opportunity to adopt them. Autumn is extremely happy with her play mate, Shadow preens her, cuddles and they play together. Buddy loves lap time and will go back and forth between Tom and I, I believe he's giving us points, LOL. Please consider senior cats when you adopt they deserve a loving family in their golden years and you will definitely be rewarded.
