    P.A.W.S: A thing about string

    Our Hazel has a thing about string. She loves it. Hold a piece of string in front of her and she’ll jump for it and bat it around forever. Well, for a long time, anyway. And did you notice — of course you did! — how stunning she is? This 3-year-old lovely would trade every piece of string in the shelter for a home of her own. As long as string goes with it. Don’t dither. With adoption fees reduced through Dec. 23 …

    P.A.W.S: Home for the Holidays

    Bo, a mixed breed about 6 or 7 years old, came to us as a stray. When no one turned up to claim him, he became a member of our shelter family. His experience has made him wise, and he’s laid back and easy-going. He really likes just hanging out, and in case you’re not such an active chappie yourself, he’s not awfully fond of walks, though he will take a short one now and then, with company. What can we say about …

    P.A.W.S: Thankful for Java and Nelson

    Among the many things we are thankful for on Thanksgiving Day are gentle creatures like Java and Nelson and kind-hearted, generous people like you. What’s on your list? Don’t let Nelson’s apparent somnolence trick you. Yes, he does love his naps — what cat doesn’t? — but he also likes to play. This sweet boy has an exceptionally friendly and loving personality and gets along fine with other cats. And when he …

    Meet Ramona, the snow princess

    Our beautiful snow princess, Ramona, is anything but frosty — shy, perhaps, but a sweet and loving girl when she gets comfortable with you. She spends a lot of time hanging out in the cat patio, which she finds much more interesting than her room, and her new home will have a warm, sunny spot reserved just for her. Ramona, who is 6 years old, was out on the mean streets for a while, but she is now an indoor cat …

    P.A.W.S: Doggone lonely

    The reason you see many more cats than dogs in this column is because we have many more cats than dogs. (We will refrain from saying “Duh” and hope you will too.) But this week we have two special furry four-footers of the canine persuasion, and they are wonderful dogs indeed. Our gorgeous Ava is a 2-year-old Lab/hound mix who got the better part of both and a lot more. Active and playful, Ava wants everyone to …

    P.A.W.S: Still waiting

    Still waiting, our dearest Ernie, for his fur-ever home, particularly one with room to roam and places to play. Despite his solemn gaze, this handsome fellow is quite affectionate — and if sometimes he’s a little too affectionate, he can’t help it. It’s in his nature. He likes to sit on your lap, but even more than that he loves a sunny spot to nap. Ernie comes with one proviso: He needs to be the only cat in his …

    P.A.W.S: In the market for a family

    Oh, snap! Do we have some beautiful cats here in our shelter, or don’t we? In addition to being a stunner, our gorgeous Betty is playful, sweet and loving — the very best of cat. This darling girl is in the market for a family that will give her lots of attention and help her find that perfect spot on the bed to take a nap. Betty loves to chase a cat ball around the room or bat at one of the toys hanging on the …

    P.A.W.S: See all our lovelies at the shelter

    Tommy is a very sweet kitten who loves more than anything else in the world to play. He chases toy mice, balls, the laser light and anything else that moves. All that play tends to wear him out — as it certainly would us! — and when he’s bushed he curls up for a cat nap. He’s a jolly little sprite and would be fine in a home with kids and other cats. Charlie is a bit of an oddball, and he’ll need an owner who is …

    P.A.W.S: The most darling dogs

    OMG. Have we ever seen two darlinger dogs than Amanda and Haley? (Perhaps we mean “more darling,” but a new and different word every now and then can’t be a bad thing, so we’ll stick with darlinger.) Tops on Amanda’s list of the very best things to do is play with someone she loves — and that means pretty much everyone — and go for walks. This happy-go-lucky girl would love to be your co-pilot on your next road …
