LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB0 -- If you thought Cats were the only thing on the mind of UK head basketball coach John Calipari, you're wrong.

He's got dogs on the brain too.

Earlier this week, Calipari tweeted out a picture of a sign that was held up in the crowd on NBC's Today Show. It read "John Calipari HATES PUPPIES GO CARDS"

 

Calipari said his dogs, McGruff and Palmer, took the news especially hard. He assured everyone that he loves dogs, and on Thursday, he proved it with new pictures.

He hosted members from the Lexington Humane Society at his office, including adoptable dogs. He held the puppies in his arms and tweeted he's a proud supporter of the organization.

 

The Lexington Humane Society adopts more than 5,000 animals every year.
