Meet Otis!

Meet Otis!

Chihuahua mix
12 years
10 lbs.

Hello dear, how are you today? They call me Otis. I’m distinguished and wise, and looking for a nice forever family to love me for the rest of my days.

I’m a mellow guy who likes to spend time curled up with my people, so I’m best suited to a laid-back home. I like new people, dogs and cats. I haven’t met any kids with my foster family yet, but I’d probably be okay with them, as long as they’re mellow too.

I’m potty-trained, but I don’t like my crate. I think my age means I’m responsible enough to be left out in the house anyway.

If you think your house is the chill and relaxed place for me, email my friends at PawsCo at or fill out an adoption application here

Meet Froome!

Meet Froome!

Domestic Short Hair
6 months old
5 lbs. (and growing!)

Well hello there! I cannot WAIT to meet you. I’m very curious and excited about exploring the world! Every closet is a cave of wonders; every window is a portal to another world!

Phew…I got a little carried away there. Let me properly introduce myself! I’ve had a bit of an eventful beginning to my life. I came to PawsCo as a stray and it was clear I needed a little TLC. All of the doctors and volunteers saw my maximum cuteness potential and pulled together to give me a second chance – thanks guys!

I’m doing so much better now, but I should mention that I only have three legs. At first I thought that might make life a little challenging but boy was I wrong! You know what rhymes with Froome? Zoom! Definitely don’t think of my three legs as a disability – if anything it just streamlined me!

In addition to exploring the entire world, I also love my other furry family members. I love other kitty siblings as long as they love to play play play and then nap nap nap! I also love my doggy foster brother but I’ll admit it did take me a few days to give him a real chance. I love my furry siblings and I love to play but most of all I love to snuggle. I may have already used up one of my lives so I’ve got some extra love to give in this one. I love to be near my humans and generally try to keep them in my sights by following them from room to room. My absolute favorite is when they decide it’s time to sit down on the couch and let me curl up next to them.

In general, I’m a friendly, affectionate, playful kitten looking for someone that that can appreciate my goofy personality and boundless curiosity.  If you want to be a part of the rest of my life reach out to my friends at PawsCo at or fill out an adoption application here and let’s make it happen!

White and Brown Chihuahua Mix

Carter the Chihuahua mix here reporting from sunny Colorado! Like my role model Kyle Clark of 9News — I am an upbeat fellow that loves to meet new people and share their stories. I’m a rising star hungry for my next assignment — could that be getting to know you?

I have a melancholy start to my own story, but spoiler alert — it all turns out okay! Me and my best friend Chip were abandoned on the border of Kansas and Colorado; but, we were rescued by good samaritans. Talk about a pull at the heartstrings happy ending! Now I’m ready for Part two of my life story where I find a forever home where I can settle in as the number one cuddler in my new family. If you already have kids and/or (small-ish) dogs and cats — that’s fine by me! Are up for double the fun? I would love to find a forever home with Chip.

Like any memorable TV personality, I’m a bright little pup with a big persona and even bigger ears — perfect for the small screen. I’ve learned so much in my short life, including how to sleep happily in my crate, how to sit, and how to come when my name is called! I also earned an A+ in potty-training. I’m sure to get the highest ratings with all these smarts.

Do you think I might be the guy you trust to deliver your nightly news? If you think so, fill out a dog adoption application and email to setup a VIP meet and greet with me. Until we meet — this is Carter, signing off! Good night Colorado — I hope to come home with you soon.

Milkshake: The Sweet Treat You’ve Been Waiting For

Milkshake: The Sweet Treat You’ve Been Waiting For
By Ashton Haga, Milkshake’s Foster Mom

IMG_3674Milkshake did not have an easy start in life. She came to me as an absolutely terrified 6-month-old kitten. She had a severe case of ringworm, and she had clearly had little interaction with humans previously (at least positive humans). With extensive vetting we were able to kick the ringworm and get Milkshake 100 percent healthy, but the idea of transforming her from a wild animal to a house cat was daunting.


We had to start slow and work our way up. From getting used to my voice, to getting used to my presence, and finally my touch, we took baby steps. With time, she was warming up and actually starting to show that she enjoyed my company.


Once Milkshake was introduced to the household, she found her saving grace: her kitty foster brother. She stuck with him 24/7 and started imitating the behaviors she saw! She picked up meal times, the best places to snooze in the sun during the day, and that being around humans was actually kind of fun!


Fast forward four months and it’s hard to believe that was how we started! Milkshake is absolutely thriving now. She has gone from scared kitten to confident cat, and she loves to play. She knows that one day she WILL catch that laser pointer!
Milkshake is still a little skittish around excited puppies or unexpected movements, but she bounces back almost immediately. The thing is, she WANTS to be with you, and she’s willing to offer a little more trust to make that happen. She will happily follow you from room to room just to be near you. No matter what’s going on, she’s not too far off, and her favorite place to sleep at night is in bed next to you.


Now, just like her name, Milkshake is a truly sweet treat. She’s looking for a forever family that’s willing to give her a little adjustment time. She’s learning that humans are a good thing after all, and she’s ready for her perfect human (that’s you!) to come along. Just look at those fluffy cheeks… How can you resist?
