Upcoming events:

– Foster home roundup at PAWS on Thursday, Feb 27, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Come join us. With kitten season right around the corner, we are in great need of foster homes of all kinds. We will teach how to care for and bottle-feed orphaned kittens. We will serve light refreshments and explain the different types of fostering that is needed. From an “overnight foster” to an “expecting mother foster” and every kind in between. It really does take a village to save lives. While not necessary, we would appreciate if you would call 937-653-6233 to pre-register.

Shadow is a 7-year-old German Shepherd surrendered to us by his owner who had kept Shadow outside. Shadow is a very loving, sweet boy looking for a home where he will feel loved and included.
