Pets of The Week, March 5

Meet Morris!  He is a 2 year old, extremely sweet domestic short haired cat.  Morris came to PAWS FIV positive.  Here are a few excerpts fromhttp://www.littlebigcat.com/health/living-with-fiv/   about FIV positive cats.  If you are interested in finding out more about FIV, please visit the website. 

"Like most viruses, FIV is specific to its host species and infects only cats; it is not contagious to people. FIV is found in 1-1/2 to 3% of all cats in the U.S.  Like the Serengeti lions, many FIV+ cats live long lives without ever developing symptoms of the disease."

"Most FIV+ cats could be adopted and live with FIV-negative cats with very little risk of transmitting the disease. Because FIV is only transmitted through bite wounds, a non-aggressive FIV+ cat would not put other cats at risk. Sadly, most FIV+ cats in shelters are euthanized, or segregated and "warehoused" for the rest of their lives with little chance of adoption."

"FIV is not a death sentence. However, sensible precautions should be taken. FIV+ cats should be kept strictly indoors to eliminate the risk of transmitting the disease to other cats through fighting, as well as to reduce exposure to secondary infections that could harm the cat."



Meet Sue,  she is a very calm and extremely quiet  6+ year old hound mix.  She came to us in 2014 through a court case that took over a year for us to gain custody of her.  She was heartworm positive and after winning custody, her heartworm treatment was started .  She is shy around men and does not trust them.   She does not act her age OUTSIDE of the shelter environment, where while inside, she does not interact with the public.  Please come in and take her out to the dog park and see her true personality.   She loves to give kisses and be loved on.  Please consider opening your home to an older dog that has gone through so much in her life.

Pets of the Week, Feb. 20

Dog of the Week

Meet Rico.  He is a 1 1/2 year old Pitt Bull that still has a lot of puppy in him.  He is very sweet and energetic! He is very strong and pulls on the leash to get to where he is going, so he needs a strong,  patient person that will teach him how to walk on the leash properly.  He requires an indoor home with a family to love him!

Cat of the Week

Meet Seal!  A beautiful blue eyed girl that loves attention!  She is 2 years old and prefers to be in your lap!  Very loving!

Dog of the Week: Maybelline

Meet Maybelline,  she is a 8 month old American Pit Bull mix.  She is around 40 pounds and will get a little bit bigger.  She is extremely sweet but timid. She was found as a stray and not in good shape at the time.

Maybelline is now healthy and looking for a forever family that will keep her as an inside pet. She requires someone with patience for training, as she is a puppy and someone with soft voice to help her gain trust.  She is very loving and wants to play but is just unsure of what is acceptable.
