We are having so much fun with making these short videos with our babies for posting on Facebook.  So, when you visit PAWS page, be sure to “like”, then share, these little snippets of our babies available for adoption. It most certainly helps, along with all the other internet outlets we use, to find wonderful, forever homes for the dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens we love and care for.


Vera Bradley and Dooney & Bourke handbags, Clarks and Birkenstock shoes and sandals, Tommy Hilfiger sportswear.  PAWS 2nd Chance Resale has them all ready for summer shopping.  Sales on summer tops, baskets, and select furniture items continues.  Come on in.

The lovely Annabelle Street Festival is Saturday, June 11, and we have been invited to be a part of the festivities.  We’ll be at the Anna Arts Center with pups and/or dogs to visit, our shirts for sale, and some fun stuff for you. 

Next up will be the Dawg Daze Super Shelter Spectacular at Alto Vineyards June 26th.  We, along with many of our old friends from other rescues and shelters will be there to celebrate DOG, and kitties, too.  We look forward to visiting with friends and supporters, and possibly hooking up with some new homes for our babies.

Oops!  Almost forgot to mention that we sent another twenty-seven of our darlings home in May.  That makes 135 so far this year.  We are so pleased and proud of the teamwork that makes this happen, and we couldn’t be happier for those babies and their new families. 

And more arrive nearly every day.  We do this for them and because you support us in our work.  We are thankful every day for your help, and the babies send you kitten kisses and puppy-plause for your generosity.


Meanwhile, if you see a companion animal in need, in trouble, or suffering, please, please call someone before it’s too late for them.  Call your local animal control office, the police, the Sheriff’s Dept., and let us know, too.  It IS your business if an innocent being who cannot speak for himself needs your help!
