Pets of the Week

November 23-29, 2015

  • Onion Ring

    My name is Onion Ring and I am a one and a half year old domestic shorthair mix. My story is sad but happy. I was trapped and brought in under the feral cat catch and release program. When I was ready to be released I was scared and ended up hiding under the car of the person who caught me. She tried to coax me out from under the car with an onion ring, which did not work, but instead I jumped into her car and hid on the floor board. So the person who caught me brought me back to Paws and asked Paws if they would adopt me out instead of setting me out with the other feral cats since I was so scared and actually quite nice and loving. Paws said yes! So here I am at Paws, waiting for my new family to walk through the door and fall in love with me. My name might be Onion ring, but onion rings I do not like. I did get adopted out to a family but I have since found my way back here to search for yet another home because my adoptive family said that I did not fit into my family. Even though they said that I did not fit in, they did say that I was very loving. I would like to find a family that will keep me forever. Could that be you? I am neutered, microchipped, FIV/FELV tested and up to date and all vaccinations.

  • Darla

    This beautiful three year old Labrador Retriever mix is Darla. Darla was originally adopted out from PAWS Humane in 2013 but she was returned because the family had to move and she could not go. Darla is a super awesome girl that needs to find a very special home to call her own. She has been working with our volunteer trainers and has learned some very special commands. She can sit, look, stay, come, lay down and is currently working on fetch. She is also learning hand signals, as well as, voice commands. She will need some time to adjust to new dogs that are introduced to her. She has lived with children of all ages in the past and has done very well with them. She is house broken and will bark until someone lets her outside when she has to go potty, but after being in the shelter setting, she may need some brushing up on her potty manners. Darla is spayed, micro-chipped and current on her vaccinations. Come meet this extra special girl today!
