Our few volunteers have been completely swarmed with taking care of dogs, so we apologize for the lack of posts lately. As most of you know, Joan (our adoption coordinator) is recovering from a terrible car accident. She is doing well and is expected to be released from the hospital within the next few days. She will have a lengthy recovery, but we are so thankful she is doing well. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and are planning a safe New Year's celebration! The following is an update on what has been going on with PAWS!

First, THANK YOU TERESA for stepping up to help Josh, Darla, Toby, and Nate temporarily! Another big THANKS to VICKI and family for taking care of Miles! We still have 2 dogs that need to get out of the shelter ASAP: Eddie and Skylar. Eddie is a big baby who happens to have a docked tail (no idea what he really is). Unfortunately, he is heartworm positive (light positive). Skylar is a gorgeous gal who just needs a patient person to show her the way (eg., house manners, etc.). She is heartworm negative- YEY! The only thing keeping her from being adopted or taken in by our rescue partner is a foster home!

We also have 2 precious Boxers, Layla (green collar) and Southpaw (brown collar), that Joan had recently taken in who are emaciated and need some TLC. We would prefer these 2 to stay together at least until they are healthier (they sleep curled up together). These pictures were taken about 2 weeks ago and they have since been bathed and have probably already gained a couple of pounds (we'll try to post pictures again soon). They are the sweetest things you will ever meet. Sadly, both are heartworm positive (Layla- medium positive and Southpaw-light positive). Check out these faces!

Other dogs that need to be re-homed include: Stevie Girl (black lab), Hazel (Chocolate lab/Doberman mix), Callie, and Charlie (Chocolate lab siblings- they can be separated). Incidentally, Stevie Girl and Hazel get along well together if anyone is looking for two! These sweeties were taken in temporarily, but their foster homes are already beyond capacity. Please, if you cannot foster, we could really use funding for food for these dogs (donations are tax deductible) and overall medical expenses (many are not vetted at all as they were just taken in and need to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and ultimately undergo heartworm treatment). We will have more in the coming days.
