Rogue had his 6th birthday party and instead of gifts, he asked for donations for PAWS! He surprised us at the adoption center with a huge haul of gifts (only half of them are pictured). Thank you Rogue!
A success story worth celebrating! If you've been following us for a while, you might remember Cecille: an 11-year-old diabetic cat who was adopted and returned more times than any cat in PAWS' history. While she was here, she won an online competition that resulted in a $5,000 grant (many of you helped by voting). Cecille finally found her fifth and forever home, and we used the grant funds to help open our new adoption center. Her desperate situation turned into a success story not just for her, but for so many other rescued cats that came after her.
We heard from Cecille's family recently - she now goes by Queen C: "She loves our new place and continues to purr constantly. She has finally started napping in her cat bed and began to play with her toys a few weeks ago. She was recently at the vet and her diabetes is still being maintained by the “Friskies diet”. She seems very happy and loves snuggling and sitting outside on our balcony. I hope all of you who work there continue to find good homes for the animals at PAWS, you certainly did a wonderful job helping us bring her home!"
