Meet Haley

By jim Published: January 31, 2011

Pets reader Traci sent us this photo of Haley with the following background:

"This is Haley. Haley was dropped off on the side of the road and had been abused. We took her home 4 years ago! Some people say she looks like the RCA dog and others say Petey from the Little Rascals. She is the best dog we could ever have."

PAWS Pet of the Week: Meet Millie!

By millere80 Published: January 31, 2011

Meet Miss Thoroughly Modern Millie. A strikingly beautiful brown tabby, Millie is a very sweet 10-month-old young lady who was cruelly abandoned when her family moved away. She's quite the social butterfly who loves to make new human friends. An extremely affectionate girl, Millie is very happy curled up in a lap. She's also playful and purrfect with other cats.

Millie is adventurous and inquisitive. She might crawl into your refrigerator a couple times so you do need to initially be cautious about opening doors and drawers. She learns quickly and is easily trained.

PAWS Pet of the Week: Meet Gigi!

By millere80 Published: January 25, 2011

Gigi is a Glam Girl. Gorgeous Gigi is sister to Layla, Ralph & Hank (posted separately). All the siblings were rescued by a kind Samaritan who fed and socialized the little kittens outdoors all summer and fall. When winter came, she saw the poor babies holding their tiny frostbitten paws up off the ground so she took them in and called PAWS for help.

Gigi is a 7-month-old, petite 5-pound black and white Persian mix. She has the most luxurious long hair and is black with white paws and chest, black chin and white nose with a black line down it. Gigi purrs constantly and absolutely adores being picked up, held, kissed and cuddled. Is this little glam gal the one for you?

PAWS Pet of the Week: Meet Slim!

By millere80 Published: January 17, 2011

Lost, lonely and hungry, Slim wandered into a kind hearted stranger's yard meowing for help. Obviously, Slim was once someone's pet because he is FRONT DECLAWED. But no one ever called to claim him. Poor kitty was so bone thin that the woman named him Slim. Now, with lots of love, food and vetting, Slim is ready to find a purrmanent home.

Slim has blossomed into quite a handsome young man. He's a short-haired, gray and black striped tabby with white paws and shirtfront. He has the most gorgeous green eyes that stare at you with complete adoration. Like all PAWS cats, Slim must go to an INDOOR ONLY home. An extremely friendly FRONT DECLAWED kitty, Slim gets along great with other animals and is the ideal companion for some very lucky person. Are you that lucky someone?

A pet photographer with an eye for the cute

By jim Published: January 7, 2011

Pet photographer Ren Netherland has a gallery of pet photos you have to see. “One customer wanted their cat dressed as a groom and then also as a bride. They wanted me to Photoshop the image to make the two versions of the cat sitting next to each other. I had to explain that cats aren’t like dogs. Dogs don’t usually mind wearing clothes, but trying to put a cat in a tux is a no-no. It will either attack you, or just lay down and refuse to pose.” Ren is compiling his favorite shots from through-the-years for a forthcoming book of unique animal photography.

Dogs Can Be Electrocuted During Walks

By Leighangela Published: January 4, 2011

Stray voltage near conductive objects like light poles and manhole covers have been identified as the culprit behind shocks and electrocutions of dogs out for their morning strolls. Stray voltage can occur when wires fray over time or aren't properly insulated, and salt spread during winter months assists with conduction to a dog's paws via moisture and slush.

Pedestrians are also at risk, as electric current may travel through leashes to the person walking the dog.
