Zeus and Thorr


Meet Zeus:

We just wanted to give you a quick update on Lemme (renamed Zeus). As you can see, he clearly has become quite comfortable in his new home.

He also loves playing with our husky mix, Thorr.

We all love him so much! – Tracey Hoffman


PAWS Dog Adoption

Meet Shelby:

Shelby, a.k.a., Princess, is doing well so far. She loves Shadow! Very playful with him. She's potty trained and comes when we call her via whistling  and when we use her name, too. She's eating well. We crate her at night and leave the door open during the day so she can rest in it, which she does. As you can see, she has mastered the stairs role modeled by Shadow. She's very puppy-like and just adorable. So far so good!! - Stacy Woods and family


PAWS Dog Adoption

Meet Maxine (Leela):


Just wanted to update you all on Leela the 1 eyed wonder.

 She now goes by Leela (inspired by Futurama) Her eye socket healed nicely and she is healthy and happy  I love her so much and I can tell she loves me too.

Thank you P.A.W.S. for saving her so she could find her furever home with me. - Jennifer Hicks


PAWS Dog Adoption

Meet Dewey:

Hi Paws! A few years ago, on a whim, we stopped by PAWS to "just look". We came back with this big guy, already named "Dewey" -- not being sure of his age, but guessing 4-6 years. Years later and I can tell you that we love this guy so very much and we are so thankful for the care you gave him while he was there (2 different times) and so grateful that when he ended up at another shelter that you took him back so that we could eventually come to meet him!  He is the SWEETEST, most LOVING dog. Its truly beyond us why this boy has had 2 or 3 different homes. He loves kisses, snuggles, and peanut butter.  He is a great friend to our yorkie, Sammy! Just wanted you to know, on this special day, how much we love and adore our Dewey!  Amy Hobbs Dillman
