Pets of the Week

December 5-11, 2016

  • Sophia


    Most endearing bad habit: Mischievous.

    Dream job: Virtual tutor.

    Most lovable trait: Sweet as pie.

    About me: Hi, I’m Sophia! I’m a 12-year-old Domestic Longhair Tabby who is looking for my new home. I came to PAWS from the Community Cat project because my caretaker just knew I would make a great companion. I’m a very nice kitty, who loves other kitties and people too. Will you give me the second chance I long for?




  • Rolo

    Rolo Web

    Most endearing bad habit: Accomplished escape artist.

    Dream job: Cattle herder.

    Most lovable trait: Giving visitors the “side eye” as they walk past my room.

    About me: I’m a handsome almost two-year-old Coonhound mix. I am searching for a home that I could possibly have a furry or human brother and sister. I’m active, but also very affectionate, and would love nothing more than a couch to call my own to share with my family. Will you please come visit me?
