This week instead of having TWO Pets of the Week, we have THREE!  Cowboy, Ranger, and Dixie!

Cowboy and Ranger are large, lazy, and affectionate Manx cats looking for a loving home. They are both 5 years old and have no tails. We do not want these brothers to be apart. Cowboy is a little shy but calm and very sweet. He is the largest at 17.5 lbs! Ranger is friendly and more outgoing. He has a laidback and affectionate attitude. They are both well behaved and very used to living indoors. Cowboy and Ranger are looking for a quiet household where they can be lazy and get lots of petting. Both cats are neutered, current on vaccinations, FeLV/FIV negative and micro-chipped. Their adoption fee together is $125. PAWS Humane offers a senior citizen adoption discount of $50 per pet. Cowboy and Ranger could be adopted together to a qualifying senior citizen home for only $25!

Dixie is a small female Beagle mix about four years old. No longer wanted by her owner, she and another dog were recently pushed out of a car in the Animal Control parking lot and left to fend for themselves. Poor Dixie was so scared she ran and hid until finally, a shelter staff member was able to coax her to come to her. She is a precious girl and is very friendly now that she feels comfortable and safe. Dixie is looking for a home with a family who will never abandon her again. She is spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee is $175.

Come to the shelter and say hello to these wonderful furry pals and maybe you’ll even fall in love!


Friday the 13th: Black Cats, Bad Luck?

Today is Friday the 13th and I thought it would be a great day to put the spotlight on our black cats. PAWS Humane currently has 6 black cats and a few mixes patiently waiting for loving homes. Velvet, our longest resident cat, is black.  Having the lowest adoption rates and the highest euthanasia rates in animal shelters, they don’t really have the best luck.  The superstition surrounding black cats as being “bad luck” or “the devil” has been around for centuries. It also does not help that their dark color makes them blend in. Owners and advocates of black cats can tell anyone they are some of the most appreciative, loving, and angelic cats there are. Maybe a black shelter cat will get its lucky break today. If you have a black cat let us know why your “little panther” is so amazing!

And now introducing this week’s PAWS Pets of the Week… Whiskey and Trixie!  Also remember that all adult pet adoption fees are still $25 off!

Whiskey is a 3 year old large brown tabby. Like most cats, he is shy but very sweet. He likes to snuggle under blankets or close to people. Whiskey is looking for a quiet, low-key home where he will get lots of love. Whiskey is neutered, current on vaccinations, FeLV/FIV negative and micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $100 (only $75 with the discount!).

Hey! My name is Trixie and I’m a 4 month old Coonhound mix! I am a happy, energetic, and incredibly smart little gal! My favorite thing to do is romp and play in the great outdoors. I am looking for a companion who is very active, will take me on long walks, and play with me. Seeing as I am teething, I enjoy chewing on toys, especially ones that go “SQUEAK”!. I will follow my nose, wherever it goes, so I’ll need a securely fenced in yard.  If you are ready to explore the great outdoors with me let’s kick up our heels and get going!  I promise lots of love and kisses!  Lucky for me, I spent a short time in a foster home before making my way to PAWS to find my forever home. I’ve  been spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and de-wormed. My adoption fee is $175.

Come say hit to Whiskey and Trixie at the shelter!  Who knows, maybe one of these sweet babies could be your perfect match!

Bonner & Gail– Pets of the Week!

I know it’s been a while, but there’s no better way to come back blogging than to highlight this weeks PAWS Pets of the Week!

Bonner is a three year old black long-haired cat. When Bonner was found, he was so matted that his fur had to be shaved very short. When it grows back, he will be beautiful and fluffy again. Bonner is a big sweet cat and is very social. Bonner is neutered, current on vaccinations, FeLV/FIV negative and micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $100.  For a limited time PAWS Humane is offering a $25 discount off the adoption fee of any adult cat or dog. 

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.
