PAWS Pet of the Week: Meet Tango!

By millere80 Published: February 28, 2011

Meet Tango, a pretty two-year old tortie who really needs some kindness in her life. Tango was found in a busy Cleveland neighborhood crying for the attention of restaurant and bar patrons. She was skinny and cold, desperate for food and shelter. Luckily a PAWS volunteer saw her and scooped her up.

Tango has not had an easy life and can sometimes be a little apprehensive about being touched. She is adjusting to her new carefree life and recently discovered the joys of playing with cat toys. She loves being with her foster parents and sleeps peacefully on the end of their bed. Tango is getting used to other kitties and would be a great cat for someone who is looking for an independent but curious pet. Tango has been tested, spayed and is up to date on shots.

PAWS Pet of the Week: Meet Shorty!

By millere80 Published: February 21, 2011

Short on stature, big on sweetness.

Shorty is a very special girl. Before PAWS rescued her, she suffered some type of terrible trauma that left her without back feet. Don't tell Shorty, though! Despite her disability, she can even manage to jump up onto a king size bed! She gets around fine, primarily walking on her front paws and using her back legs for balance. A litter box with lower sides is a must. And a home on one floor would be ideal as steps can be difficult.

SOS adoptee of the day: Beau!

By Amber Published: February 20, 2011

Breed:  Australian Shepherd - Chow Chow (mix)
Age: 4 yrs 
Gender:  Male
Altered: Yes
Ref. no.: 081107R

Beau is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd/Chow mix with a mysterious yet tragic past. He is naturally cautious of strangers due to his Chow mixture but he is deathly afraid of pre-teen and teenage boys. We can only guess what type of life he once had. We are working on his trust issues and his issues with believing that all strangers are bad people and feel he would not be suited in a home with children. Once his trust is earned though, you will reap the benefits of a loving and loyal companion who is happy to just spend time with you. To apply for adoption, please fill out an on-line application at www.saveohiostrays.org. Save Ohio Strays does NOT claim or guarantee any breeds given in this description. These strays come from shelters so there is usually no further knowledge. These are best guess descriptions for breed. SOS NEVER ships pets and will not adopt out to a driving radius greater than 3 hours from Medina, Ohio.

Ohio Lets Dog Abusers Off Easy

By Leighangela Published: February 17, 2011

Among all states and their animal cruelty laws, Ohio ranks 45th out of 50 in how the state prosecutes animal abusers.

Back in 2009, pets.ohio.com told you about an Ohio kennel owner who was sued after he starved a dog (and 11 others) in his care. These dogs were left with him by pet owners who had to go on trips and wanted to place their dog in a safe place. Instead, the owners of Nitro, a Rottweiler left at the kennel, were called by police while on their trip and informed that Nitro had been starved to death.

Cats sleep where they like

A pets.ohio.com reader sent this photo of her cat, along with a note:

"Ruby has been an odd cat from day one. She has never slept where a normal cat would, nor in a normal cat position. This is her comfy lego spot. Others include, on the top bunk under the blankets, and in Dad's chair upside down."

Lost dog in Suffield off Waterloo Road

By jim Published: February 7, 2011


I live off of Waterloo Rd in Suffield. My husband let Ebony out at 8:30 a.m and when he went back out to get her she was gone. We searched the entire neighborhood by both car and foot, and have not seen her. I have went door to door and no one knows anything. Ebony was recently groomed, a purple collar and a white and multi-colored bandanna. She is entirely black with the exception of a little gray under her chin. She is the sweetest dog and my family misses her so much. She never gets loose and we are new to the neighborhood, so I don't know if she can find her way back home. I went to the vet on St. Rt 532 in Mogadore and a woman had called and said she found a dog on Waterloo Rd early Sunday morning, so I am praying that is Ebony, If you have any information please call Jodi at (330)532-7243...thank you so much.
