Kitty’s Galore!

With the upcoming kitten season, PAWS will need a lot of space in order to save as many kittens as possible.  Currently, PAWS has 36 cats available for adoption and more coming.  Most of these cats have been at PAWS for quite a long time and if they don’t get adopted soon then there won’t be room for all the abundance of newborn kittens that will be at Animal Control.  (P.S. if your interested in fostering during kitten season, or anytime for tha matter,  fill out a foster application!)

Here are some sweet cats from PAWS that are in desperate need of a forever home.  Most of these faces probably look familiar to you because they’ve been waiting for quite a while. To look at these cats and more, please visit the PAWS Humane Shelter Adoption page:

Celia, 11 months, @ PAWS since 1/12

Kenny, 1 year old, @ PAWS since 3/10

Silky, 11 months, @ PAWS since 2/3

Pets of the Week: Gail & Yum Yum

This week at PAWS we are highlighting two very sweet ladies, Gail and Yum Yum!

Gail is a one-year-old female Beagle mix who was brought over from Animal Control. She is an active girl who would love to have either children to play with or a family who enjoys going for walks or runs. Gail may be an escape artist, so we advise that she goes to an indoor home and is supervised closely while she is outside. Like most dogs of the Beagle variety, Gail loves to talk, so an apartment home may not be the best choice for her. Gail has been spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and de-wormed. Her adoption fee is $175.

Yum Yum is a beautiful seven year old cream point tabby with sparkling blue eyes. She was once adopted but returned because her owner sadly had to move to a place that did not allow inside animals. We hope Yum Yums’ return is short and she is in a new home soon. She does well with cats and with calm dogs. Yum Yum is a gentle and laid-back cat that likes just about everyone as long as they respect her. She can usually be found on a perch taking a nap. As a mature gal, Yum Yum has slowed down but she still has a lot of love. She will need a quiet and low activity home where she can feel comfortable. Yum Yum is spayed, current on vaccinations, FeLV/FIV negative, and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee is $50. PAWS has a senior citizen adoption discount of $50 for qualifying seniors 60+ years which means Yum-Yum could go home with a new senior friend at no charge.

Happy Tails: Remember Dallas?

Dallas is a Labrador Retriever/American Bulldog mix that came to PAWS on March 10.  This lucky guy was only at PAWS for five days until he found his forever home!  Dallas’ new owner sent PAWS some information on how he is doing in his new home:

“Dallas has blessed our home more than we ever thought a dog could. Before we started looking for a new addition to our home we had a picture of the dog we wanted. We wanted a hound dog, Dallas is what we call a food hound and always keeps us laughing. I wanted a guard dog to keep me safe, Dallas never leaves my side no matter where I go or what I do, you can bet he is by my side ready to give kisses or reassurance that everything will be ok. I wanted people to look and be cautious of approaching me with my dog, Dallas has won everyones heart on ft. Benning base including all the guards, police, and soldiers….rewarding me with new friends in a place where I just moved too and do not know anyone. He goes to visit my husband every day at work and the soldiers look forward to his kisses and company. When I saw Dallas he was not what I had in mind, but he is everything I could ever ask for in a companion and a new addition to our family.”

It looks like Dallas has adopted his new family instead of the other way around! Congrats to Dallas on finding his forever home!
