June is the American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Cat month, and PAWS Place Adoption Center can certainly help you to celebrate this occasion. Remember earlier this year when we talked about the importance of spaying and neutering your companion animals?  Then, lately, everyone in animal rescue and sheltering has been talking about “kitten season”.  Well, it has certainly arrived.

PAWS has accepted a number of kittens, of all flavors and colors, that will be ready to move into their new forever homes in the next several weeks.

We also have a wide array of mature, beautiful, mellow, and at times hilarious, adult cats ready to purr your troubles away! 

Did you know that stroking a cat lowers blood pressure? Increases your sense of well-being?  Helps with loneliness and provides amusement?  All true.  So, when the stresses of the world threaten to overwhelm you, help can be just a cat-in-the-lap or kitten-on-the-head away. 

Stop by, or search at pawspaws.org for your very own furry therapist. They are all spayed or neutered, microchipped, dewormed, up-to-date on their vaccinations, and ready to bring joy to your life.

Maybe two?  PAWS has several sibling groups that will do well together and will provide twice the smiles and purr therapy you need. 

You can go to http://www.americanhumane.org for more information about this month’s designation and some tips for preparation if you plan to adopt a cat.  We hope you do!

For all of you who have received our newsletter, you are already reminded that our annual pork butt sale is very soon.  Pick up dates this year will be Wed. thru Fri, June 29, 30, and July 1 at PAWS Place.  Ready for your long weekend, you will have 7-8 lbs. of pulled pork, and only $35 again this year.

PAWS volunteers will be contacting our yearly purchasers, but you can also contact any board member, call or stop by PAWS Place or our 2nd Chance Resale to confirm or place your order.

Speaking of our store, Karee has put summer clothing on super-sale for this week.  All summer tops are $1 each and women’s capris are $2.  WOW!  And, you can visit with our precious Mona Lisa.  Shopping doesn'’t get much better than this!


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!


Spay/Neuter/Adopt companion animals and keep PAWS in mind.  Call or write to us at 139 E. Vienna St., Anna, IL, 62906; ph: 618-833-DOGS (3647); pawspaws.org; and facebook.com/PAWSAnna
