Hi, I’m Sally! I haven’t had the easiest life, but I’m hoping that 2017 will be the year for me. My first owners weren’t very nice to me, but despite that, I absolutely love humans and love receiving affection – I’m just about the sweetest girl you’ll meet. I hope you love snuggling, because I am a snuggle expert extraordinaire! I even know how the, “spooning” game works – if you’re looking for a little spoon, then I’m the dog for you.
I’m a fairly low-key kind of pup. I enjoy hanging out and relaxing at home, but when my foster family grabs my leash, boy do I get excited! Walks are one of my favorite activities (next to snuggling, of course!). Did I mention that I’ve got great manners, too? I’m pretty good on-leash (except when an enticing scent catches my nose!), I can come when my name is called, and I’m a pro at “sit.” I’m crate-trained too, although I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of my crate. I much prefer sleeping on the bed with my foster family!
I would do best in a calm home with a loving adult or two – I bond to my humans quickly and would love to be the center of someone’s life! I can be a little picky about my canine friends and I’m not a fan of cats, so I’d prefer to be the only pet in my new home (after my rough start in life, I’m sure you can understand!)
Given my tough beginnings, I take a little while to build up trust with new humans. Like any sensitive soul, I can be timid at first, but I always come out of my shell and truly enjoy finding new humans to share my love with. I’m hoping 2017 brings me the hero I’ve been waiting for!
So what do you think? Ready to meet me and see if we have that special connection I’ve been waiting for? All you have to do is fill out an adoption application or email my friends at PawsCo today. I’ll be waiting for you!

Pardon me, but may I have a word with you? Yes, over here behind the couch. I simply need to ask you a few questions. Before we get started, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Pacino and I’m in the market for a forever family, but not just any family. The family I’m looking for is special indeed, for I am a special little guy.
Finding the right family is very much like finding the missing puzzle piece. I’ll be the right fit for them and they’ll be right for me. Now, on to the questions! Are you someone who has the patience to wait for me to come out from behind this couch and warm up to you? I won’t lie, you may have to come and get me. As much as I love my belly rubs, my fear usually keeps me from putting myself out there. Do you live in a quiet place? My perfect fit probably lives in a calm house where the two legged creatures are tall and don’t crawl or cry. Do you have other pets? I really like the other kitties in my foster home, and might even do well with a calm, respectful canine. Do you like to snuggle? I’ll spend a lot of time on my own, until you pull me onto your lap like my foster family does. We’re working on this to help with my fears (that and the belly rubs). It’s a process, but that’s where the patience thing comes into play!
So, last question; Do you have the time and patience to help me recognize my true kitty potential? If you’re curious to see whether you’re my missing piece, contact my friends at email@example.com or fill out an application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/catadoptionapplication/. I think we’ll know right away if we fit!

Hey there! I’m Crush and I’m a happy lady!
I am proud to be female and I’m not afraid to strut my stuff–I love to go on walks outside! I’m food motivated so I’m a fast learner. Check out some of my attributes: potty trained, not destructive when left to my own devices, will sit or lie down when asked, and love to give kisses.
I’m sweet and loving with adults and kids alike! Though I can be particular about the dogs I like, I’ll happily play with all the cool ones who know how to treat a woman. Respect, right?
One of my favorite poems is “Phenomenal Woman” by Maya Angelou. Here’s the part that really resonates with me:
I walk into a room just as cool as you please,
And to a man, the fellows stand or fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me, a hive of honey bees.
I say, it’s the fire in my eyes, and the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist, and the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman, that’s me.
I guess the only other thing you need to know about me is that I’m a huge believer in the power of belly rubs and snuggling in bed. So if you could use a phenomenal woman in your life, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. Thank you so much!

They call me Oreo. And when they call me, I usually answer in my own quiet voice. I haven’t learned your language yet, but I’m working on it. I’ve already learned a lot of other things by living with people.
It took me a little while to get used to being in a real home. I spent some time living outside before I was put in a shelter. I was so scared there that I hid in the back of my cage the whole time. The people didn’t think I would ever get adopted because I was terrified of everything outside of my little metal box.
But then PawsCo got me and put me in a real home—with treats, and toys, and catnip, and a great window seat! I like all of that, but most of all I like the person in the real home. I hid from him at first, but then I noticed how nice he was to me. He gives me lots of head and belly rubs. Now I follow him around everywhere to get more of those. I guess I’ve always just wanted to be around people who give me head and belly rubs.
I’m still scared of some things, and it takes me awhile to feel safe in new places. But I really like people now. I even like the other cat I live with. I’ve met some dogs and some kids too—both are pretty good if they’re quiet and don’t bother me too much.
If someone makes me feel safe and loved, I’m going to stay with them forever. If you want me to stay with you forever, email email@example.com or fill out an application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/catadoptionapplication/.
