Pets of the Week


PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Bayda is a beautiful 2-year-old female black and white domestic medium-hair cat. She came to the shelter with her two babies in June and they have since been adopted. Now it’s Bayda’s turn. She’s in our Teen Room and would much rather be in a home with not so many other cats. Bayda is up to date on vaccinations and has been spayed.

Upcoming event: Mark your calendars for Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for a “PAWS – Paint & Sip” class at Mad River Farm Market, 7538 N. U.S. Route 68. This ticketed fundraiser will be a lot of fun. You’ll be painting a Halloween themed lighted wine bottle that you get to take home. Your $25 ticket will also get you a free raffle ticket and a glass of wine. Tickets will be available soon and seating will be limited, so watch for details.
