PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

Our “Hope”, here at PAWS Animal Shelter, is a wonderful dog – loving, and loyal. She is very playful and loves people. Hope is a female, adult Chocolate Lab, who would love a home with lots of room to run. She is good with kids and seems to enjoy playing with them. Hope has been with most of our other dogs here at the Shelter and she is doing well with them. She does not do well with the felines. Hope is a beautiful girl who needs a chance in the right home. Please stop out and meet her.

All of our dogs are looking for a loving home where they can be taken care of for the rest of their lives.

Barely Used Pets

Hi! My name is Wheezie. I am a little Terrier Mix guy and I am 4 years old. I weigh 10 pounds. I have had a little bit of a tough journey to get here. I lived with a couple and I was kind of the man’s dog. He passed away and she could no longer take care of me, so I had to go to that other shelter. Well, they didn’t have room for me and they asked Barely Used Pets to please help me find a home. Wow…I am kind of afraid to unpack my suitcase! Won’t you please, please…please let me come home with you and be part of your family. I’m little and I don’t eat much. I’m little and I just need a little bed. I promise to be a good boy if you will just give me a chance to be happy again. Please open your heart and your home for me and I will love you back so much you won’t have a bucket big enough to hold it all. I Like Cats AND Dogs…I Love to walk on a leash and guess what? Yep…I’m Housebroken! Everyone says that is a very, very good thing! Come on over and let’s go home!
