Pets bless their owners every day with unconditional love. Now, PAWS Humane wishes to bless them in return. The public’s furry, feathery, or even scaly loved ones are welcome to be blessed alongside the orphans of PAWS Humane. In partnership with Trinity Episcopal Church, PAWS Humane will be holding its 3rd Annual Pet Blessing Saturday, October 1st, at its facility, located at 4900 Milgen Rd in Columbus, Ga. The pet blessing begins at 5 p.m. Special hours of operation for October 1st are 12-7 p.m. Pets must be on a leash or in a crate at all times.

Staff, volunteers and supporters at PAWS Humane hope the pet blessing will also drive more adopters to the shelter. PAWS Humane is bursting at the seams with dogs, cats and kittens. Every one of them deserves a home, just like the animals that will come with their families for the blessing. All dogs, over the age of 6 months, will be available for $25 for the entire month of October, in support of National Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month. To view a list of the animals available for adoption at the shelter, visit www.pawshumane.org.

In addition to the blessing, we will have Screen on the Green to follow. Beginning at 8 p.m., we will be showing Homeward Bound outside. We invite everyone to stick around and have a date night with your furry family. Please bring blankets and lawn chairs for the movie. Also, we will have a food truck here for snacks.


Pets of the Week

September 26-October 2, 2016

  • Abernathy


    Most endearing bad habit: I stay to myself which tends to get me overlooked at the shelter.

    Dream job: Technical Writer.

    Most lovable trait: Gentle.

    About me: I’m a laid back domestic shorthair kitty that is just under a year old. The nice people at the shelter tell me I’m kind, gentle and quiet, and that those are great qualities to have. I am a tad bit shy, so I’m looking for a family that will understand me and give me time to open up. Could that be you?


  • Rossi

    rossi-webMost endearing bad habit: Rough play appropriate.

    Dream job: Lawyer.

    Most lovable trait: Friendly.

    About me: I’m a three-year-old Shepherd mix who LOVES to play with other dogs. My previous owners said that I am potty trained and my care takers at the shelter say I walk pretty well on a leash too. My trainer even says I’m super smart. What else could you want in a pup? I’ve been at the shelter for almost 7 months, and I believe it’s my time to find my forever home.
