Pets of the Week


My name is Scooby. You may see me looking out my kennel door at you looking hopeful. I was adopted and in a home for a long time but was brought back through no fault of my own. I am House trained!! I'm gentle on the leash and sweet and mellow. I'm almost a senior now and this isn't where I pictured spending my golden years. I would love a forever home to call my own where I can spend my time hanging out with the people I love and just relaxing. Come down and meet me, take me for a walk!






I love belly rubs. Sleeping is the best thing in the world next to my chew toys. I prefer to be an only child, I tolerate neutered male dogs but not a big fan of Females. I do not like using the potty in my house, so please take me for walks. I have short legs but a HUGE heart.





Mater there. My name's mater &...well...I'm kinda shy. I may talk a big game, but it may take a while to get used to you if you step into my cage. Just let me make the first move, okay? But if you give me a chance, I may just be your best friend one day!




Please meet Charcoal. She is a sweet little ball of energy. She enjoys being with her person and in their lap. She gives the best hugs. When outside Charcoal can not get enough of zooming away and zooming as fast as she can back to you. She is a well behaved girl in her kennel watching her days pass by. She is choosy about who her dog friends are so a meet and greet before bringing home would be best. Please come to Anderson County PAWS to meet this fun sweet girl with the piercing eyes. Charcoal said "little kids make me nervous so I'd prefer a home with either older children or adults."





Are you the person for me? Hi my name is Tara and I really am a sweet girl. I came in with my 2 siblings and they've all found homes but I'm still waiting for my forever home. I had a rough start at life and arrived at PAWS as a 8 month old puppy. I had an accident while here and broke my leg and it was a bad break that didn't heal well so I had to have that leg amputated. Don't be deterred though because I get around absolutely fine now! I need someone who's kind and patient and who'll show me the world isn't as scary as I think it is. I think I like other dogs too but I'd do a meet and greet with any potential doggies just to be sure. Won't you come down to PAWS and meet me?

Lyla: My name is Lyla and I love to spend time with people! I am sweet, and definitely am going stick by your side. I really like to cuddle and spend time with family and friends! Come spend time with me, I'm sure we will hit it off!

Pets of the Week

Hi! I am Daisey! I like to greet everyone with a wiggly butt and a smile! I am a sweet girl that gets along with most other dogs. I am up front with my new friend Lucille when you come to PAWS. I have been at several offsite adoption events but sadly I keep getting overlooked and I don't know why because I'm such a cutie and so happy to meet you. Come on down and take me for a walk!












Meet Ginger bread he is as sweet as his name. He is a polite gentleman on the leash. He knows how to play well with others and is a quiet friend not one to jump around and be crazy. He loves spending time with his person and does well keeping four on the floor. Ginger bread does well with kids as well. Please come to Anderson County PAWS to meet this gentleman. He is also suitable to have a doggie friend at home.


Pets of the Week

Hi my name is Charles. I am a fun loving gentleman. I know how to have a good time without being disrespectful of your space. I get along well with other dogs as well as people.

They say I am hyper in my kennel but I am just trying to get some attention because I am such a people dog. Take me home and I can show you how amazing I really can shine.

Please come to Anderson County PAWS to meet me.***Just an update***....I play really well with children and had a fun time playing with the kids at the week-long kids camp that took place at PAWS and the children loved me and I adore them too!












Rainbow is HIGHLY trainable.

Some dogs like water, some like toys, Rainbow Loves to work on new tricks.

Food motivated, focused and tail wagging the entire time. Does GREAT with kids and male dogs, but likes to chase small dogs!

She would be a good fit in any home, preferably with a male dog, but would THRIVE with an owner interested in teaching her new tricks, as that is what she loves to do. Her adoption fee is sponsored


Pets of the Week  


“Please meet Hunter. This boy is the ultimate love bug. He does not know a stranger dog or human alike. He is a happy boy that shows it by wiggling not only his nubby tail but his whole body. I have never seen this boy not happy and excited to face his days even in shelter life. He is as precious with children as he is with adults. Please come to Anderson County PAWS to meet this sweet wiggly boy.”








Meet Luigi, the clown of the shelter. Luigi loves life and lives to the best of his ability here but would love to find his forever family. He is as goofy as they get. He absolutely loves his time out playing with toys in play yard. He walks well on leash even for as big as he is. A meet and greet with his forever friend would be best because Luigi sometimes thinks a boogey man is sneaking up on him meeting a new dog. Once he finds out there is nothing scary he loves to play with a new friend. Luigi has a lot to talk to you about and will talk about whatever you want to. He adores people as much as he does his toys. Please come to Anderson County PAWS to meet this big fun boy.”
