Pet Adoption Updates!

We love getting updates from our Alumni.  There's nothing more heartwarming than seeing former PAWS animals thriving in their forever homes!  Here are some of our favorite updates.
Jenny finally went to her forever home Tuesday after spending just shy of four years at PAWS! During her time at PAWS, Jenny was one of our most loved dogs. She is incredibly well trained, but still had to wait for a very particular home. No more waiting for Jenny! (Pictured saying good-bye to her foster mom!)
Cheddar crossed the Rainbow Bridge this past month from complications related to lymphoma.

His wonderful family who let him be himself to the end checked in with PAWS right before he passed to say, "Cheddar was the most amazing, wonderful cat, despite what my bank account would say. I can't begin to tell you how much we are going to miss him."
"Just wanted to share a picture of our 2 wonderful kitties we adopted. Paisley (aka Bernadette - the grey, white and black) we adopted last November and Elly May (all black) we adopted her 7/31/15. They love playing together and loving on each other..." 
Thanks PAWS for picking us as Misty's (now Riesling...) forever family. Such a sweet girl!
"[August] marks the 2 year anniversary of Roxy's adoption from Paws. We are so thankful to have found our forever dog. Thanks Paws"
