In Conversation

Listen to the show:

Animal shelters in Louisville have been at capacity, prompting some to try to recruit foster more homes, and even waive their adoption fees. What’s behind this surge in the homeless pet population? Are these the pandemic puppies and kitties whose families don’t have time for them anymore? Has there been a decrease in spaying and neutering, leading to too many litters?

We dived into it this week on “In Conversation,” with folks from local animal rescue organizations. And we had a trainer on hand to answer your questions, in case your pet’s behavior has you threatening to add them to the shelter roster (we know you don’t mean it).


There’s a lot going on in Louisville, and WFPL’s “In Conversation” with Rick Howlett gives people a platform to talk — both to each other, and with the larger community — about the biggest issues facing our city, state and region. Live at 11 a.m. every Friday on 89.3 WFPL. Call 502-814-TALK to join the conversation.
