Companion (pet-friendly) Hurricane Shelter Update

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Just a quick reminder about the “Companion (pet friendly) Hurricane Shelter” at Newport Middle School, owners must stay at this shelter also. You may not “drop off” pets or leave them in someone else’s care. Bring your pet a supply of food, medication, and anything else it might need for a couple of days. This includes a collar and leash as dogs may not be out of their kennel unleashed. These items are not provided. At this time it’s raining hard so remember also to place these items in something waterproof and not a paper bag. Pets must also leave the hurricane shelter with their owner.  If you need help getting pets inside please come in and ask.  Please come early and remain calm!                                       “HappyCat”

Web Site Welcome

Friday, July 16th, 2010

As we launch our new and much improved web site we would like to thank Jeremy of  for all of the tedious and hard work he did for the critters. Watch for more additions such as our PAWPrints Newsletter and the occasional blog from “happycat”.
We currently have 15 animals available for adoption and all are in loving Foster Homes. Imagine if we had 40 foster homes and could save that many more at a time. PAWS vets and buys all food and supplies for the Foster Home. Many think they could never give their Foster Pet up and are nervous about giving Fostering a try. It’s such a rewarding and happy feeling to watch a PAWS pet going into a forever home. If you think you’d like to consider Fostering let us know and maybe even talk with our current Fosters to get a feel for it.
The PAWS Bark Park is a lively subject these days. Everywhere I go people are asking when it will open. We’re busy with the final phase and the park will open this summer for sure. Hope to see everyone and their pooches out there. Watch for more announcements and for fun Bark Park events too!
As we near the 500 number of PAWS Pets Adopted and kept out of shelters we want to thank you for adopting. This is a long term commitment and kudos for taking it seriously. Have room for just one more or know someone that’s looking? Show them a PAWS pet!
