Have you guys heard of this new trend called Cat Memes? Apparently, they’re all the rage on the Interwebs. After seeing a few, I decided I was the inspiration for cat memes! You see, I love being pet, until I don’t like being pet anymore! Apparently, this kind of behavior is super funny to you humans. Well, that’s just me, Bubbie, being Bubbie!

When I was younger and looking for a family, I tried out a store cage environment but really didn’t like it. It was quite lonely as I waited for a forever family that never came. After that, I ended up with the nice folks at PawsCo and now I am in a loving foster home and demanding shredded cheese on the regular.

My humans say I am very friendly, cheese-motivated, string-motivated, and after all that motivation, I am sleep-motivated. I am free to roam the house, and to be honest, with all that free time, I just can’t help but nap! I should also note that I am superbly nonchalant with other cats in the house and we get along just fine. (I secretly like the companionship.)

I am definitely on the adoption market and would be so happy to meet you and find out if you think I would be the right gentleman for your home. I promise to keep you company in the kitchen, nap by your side to keep you warm, rub up against your legs, and provide you with an abundance of inspiration for your venture into cat memes!

Thanks for considering me as an addition to your family. You can apply to adopt me or email my friends at PawsCo to learn more!

44 lbs. (and growing!)

Don’t let my looks deceive you. I know I appear to be a very strong and confident guy on the outside, but on the inside, I’m still working on it. I think I could definitely be that guy one day though! I just need a little bit of help getting there because right now, I’m more the shy and quiet type. Some might even say I’m timid, but wouldn’t you be too if you were just a young pup? I mean, who really likes loud noises anyways?

I’ve got a lot to learn still, it’s true, like where the best place for a potty break is and how to walk with that silly leash thing that everybody thinks is so great but with your help, I’m sure I’ll figure it out.

I mean, I already know how to play nicely with other dogs, and with toys, and I’ve even learned that cats can be pretty cool too. Lately though, I’ve realized that people are probably the coolest ever! I like to be sure though so just give me a minute to feel comfortable and then prepare yourself for sweet, sweet cuddle time!

The bottom line is that I have, what they call, “great dog potential”. I just need a kind-hearted person to help me out with a few more things and then, Viola!, Good Dog Max will become Great Dog Max!

If you think you are that person (and I think you are!) please reach out to PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out the dog adoption application here: https://pawsco.org/adoptions/adoption-application/. Let’s get started! Great Dog Max awaits!

PawsCo Paper! Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Lobo the Dog is in search of a place to call home! Grab your PawsCo Paper here!

Hey folks of all ages! I’m Lobo, and I’m the head journalist for the PawsCo Paper. As a dedicated writer, I am in a constant search for the next breaking news story. Today it just so happens to be about me. The headline isn’t an incredibly catchy one…I’m looking for my forever home! And I’d love to give you all the important facts about why I will be such an amazing companion for you.

I’d like to report that I am such a sweet guy, and am very affectionate and loving. I love being around people; they like to do a lot of interesting and notable things like giving me ear scratches and belly rubs. I do need a home where my human is around a lot of the time as I’m still learning to be confident when left home alone. But every professional writer needs a great editor and friend to help steer their vision in the right direction with some welcomed advice, right? I’m making progress with my confidence with this but a patient, understanding human companion who can help me with my confidence building will be very helpful for me!

Being a passionate journalist requires a lot of commitment and social cues. And I show these qualities in my ability to get along great with other dog journalist friends! I have a blast playing with the other dogs in my foster home and I’d love to have a dog companion in my forever home as well! I haven’t met any cats yet so I don’t know if I’d do well with cat friends. I also can be a tad uncomfortable with the interview skills of small children so I’d do best in a home with adult companions or older kiddos (over 10yrs old would be best for me!)

BREAKING NEWS: Lobo the Dog received highest marks for Best Personality and Cutest Dog category! (These facts are not made up. They are provided by Lobo himself.)

Well, what do you say? Will you become the best story that has ever graced the front page of the PawsCo Paper by adopting me?

Email your story to my friends at PawsCo or fill out an adoption application on the PawsCo website to become the next great headline for Lobo the Dog, Journalist Extraordinaire!

Meet Tikki!

Meet Tikki!

Tikki
Manx (Brown Tabby)
Male
6 years old
12 lbs.

When you hear the word “perfect,” do you think of something or someone who is without fault, flawless, or ideal? “Perfect” is defined as “having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be.” It also happens to be how my foster family describes little ol’ me. That’s right, my name is Tikki and according to those who know me well, I’m just perfect.

At 6 years old, I’m definitely past the kitten stage, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to have fun! I can still play and pounce with the best of them! That said, I also know when it’s time to snuggle. I accept affection from everyone. I’m a gentle soul who is happy to hang out with humans (both big and small), canines and other felines, too! I’ve been a pro at the litter box for as long as I can remember, and I will make sure to keep an eye on that roomba for everyone’s sake.

So, there you have it. Fun, loving, protective, smart—that’s me! Who doesn’t want a little perfection in their lives? Or perhaps in my case, purrfection is a better word. See, I’m even funny! I’m also looking forward to meeting my forever family so make sure you email my friends at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at pawsco.org/adoptions/catadoptionapplication/. Let’s find out if you and I are the purrrrfect fit!

Meet Bear!

Meet Bear!

Bear
Shepherd Mix
Male
3 years old
81 lbs.

Hey! I’m Bear. Want to hear my story?

I have a lot in common with another Bear: Baloo from “The Jungle Book.” I had kind of a rough start in life: I tried to escape from a basement where I spent most of my time locked away. When I did have visitors, things were chaotic and stressful. So now I’m trying to take a page from Baloo’s book:

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
With just the bare necessities of life

There have been so many recent changes to my life, and I’m learning to take them in stride. The greatest discovery I’ve made is how amazing it is to feel affection! I love having my head scratched and my belly rubbed. When I trust you, I’ll start by sitting nearby, but the next thing you know, my head will be in your lap.

I’ve also found relaxing in the sunshine to be a pure delight! I’m pretty calm most of the time, and I’m not destructive when I’m left alone. In fact, I’d be a couch potato if you let me! Oh—I can’t forget another of life’s little pleasures: getting brushed is absolute heaven! I love listening to people and taking walks. I’d never encountered a vegetable before, but it’s pretty fun to learn about this new snack while I trim down!

There’s still a lot I need to learn about. I like things to move slowly. That’s why it’s alarming when, say, a veterinarian tries to give me a shot, or a dog tries to wrestle with me. I will wrestle back—I play pretty rough! Nobody messes with a Bear, right? I don’t want to be teased by kids or cats or little dogs—just not my style. Chaos is not my friend! I’d do well in a home where someone patient and mellow could make me feel safe and help me overcome stressful things that make me feel threatened.

I’m worth it since essentially, I’m really a sweetheart, a big softie. I just need to find the right home that will make me feel safe and help me enjoy the bare necessities—the bare necessity, really: love!

Will you please offer me the chance I need? All you have to do is email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. The Bear necessity of life will come to you!

Meet Claire!

Claire
Domestic shorthair
Female
14 years old
9 lbs.

Golly-gee-willikers, time passes by so quickly. I cannot believe I’m already a senior citizen—or so the label on my bag of food tells me. Luckily for me, I still have lots of love to give to an amazing forever family. I’ve recently been staying with a foster family and they have been absolutely delightful, but I’m ready to find my senior feline palace—or forever home if you prefer to call it.

You know what the best part of adopting a senior animal is? All the sage advice and stories you’ll get to hear. Like that one time my friend Gladys got a new bag of catnip for Christmas and we went out to tease the dogs next door…maybe you had to be there to think it’s funny. Anyways, I have lots of valuable worldly advice too; like never paw at a yellow and black striped flying bug, or never swallow a grasshopper whole because they’ll keep hopping in your tummy. That’s only the tip of my advice iceberg—or adviceberg, as I like to call it.

I am also a big fan of other cat friends and would also do well with a dog friend (as long as he is calm and polite with having a feline buddy!) So a home where I can have other furry friends is a great match for me but I also would do just fine as the solo animal in the home as well.

One thing to note is that I do need medication to help with my hyperthyroidism. The kind folks at PawsCo can fill you in on the details!

If you’re interested in hearing more of my stories and advice—like how to maintain your balance while swatting inanimate objects—then please email my friends from PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/catadoptionapplication/.

Hi there! What do you get when you mix a curious love bug of a kitten with a pinch of shyness but with a generous helping of affection and sweetness? I’ll tell you what you get… you get me! Milkshake the cat!

I am so thankful to be in my loving foster home and I just can’t wait to find a forever family to give all my love and sweetness to! I would be a great addition to a loving and patient home (I take a bit of time to completely warm up to a new person but once I do, I’m just a happy, goofy kitten!) I also just adore other cat friends! My cat buddy in my foster home makes me so comfortable and happy and I learn a lot just by following him around. I think I’d do so well in a home with another cat as I seem to lean on a cat friend for confidence in a new environment. There is dog in the house with us, and he’s pretty cool. I try to pretend he’s just a bigger kitty. I’m not sure how he feels about that, but we getting along great, and that’s all that matters.

I haven’t met any small humans yet. I hear the really young ones make noises and don’t give you much notice though, so I think I would like my forever home to be with another kitty or maybe some quiet humans. It’s just really nice to hang out with kindred spirits, you know?

I feel like I’ve come such a long way since my foster family took me in. I’m healthy and growing, I’ve learned the indoor potty perfectly, and I love those scratchy things to give my claws a good workout. Now all I need is to find my forever home to enjoy every bit of life with.

So…are you ready for tons of sweetness in your life? Then come and meet me! Milkshake the cat! You can email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org to set up a visit, and also fill out the application right here: https://pawsco.org/adopt/catadoptionapplication/.

Female

Do you believe in second chances? Well, so do we! In fact, we believe in third chances too. The reason being that PawsCo gave us a second chance at life nearly three years ago with the most loving, kind, treat-wielding family. Very sadly, our phenomenal mother passed away, and so PawsCo came to our rescue once again to ensure that we find yet another incredible home in which to share our love and adorable sisterly antics.

Because we know firsthand that you make the most of EVERY opportunity this life gives you, you can rest assured that we know just how to live well. As sisters, we do everything together. We’re happy to snuggle up in the same lap, lounge on the same bed (right next to our people, of course), playfully tug on the same toy, and enjoy every meal together. Life is better when it’s shared with someone that you love. While we have each other, we also know that we have so much silly sweetness to bring into a wonderful home.

Because we are such a bonded pair, we are looking for a home where we can be adopted together. We promise that we will bring so much love and happiness to your home and you will be so happy you chose to adopt two pups together! We do just fine with another dog in the home and we’re even comfortable around cat friends too! We are completely potty trained, love going on walks around the neighborhood, and are just as sweet as can be. We also would do just fine with older kids in the house (toddlers might be overwhelming to us since we can be a tad shy with new people.)

So what do you say—round three with a couple of Tibetan Spaniels? We know that you won’t regret taking a chance on us! We can’t wait to fill your home with so much happiness and love If you are interested in more information, send an email to adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/.

Meet Elsa!

Meet Elsa!

Elsa
Bull Terrier
Female
4 years old
38 lbs.

Yes, you are correct…I am just about the most adorable girl you’ve ever seen! And I can assure you that my adorable personality and kind soul matches my beautiful exterior just perfectly. And I just can’t wait to find an amazing forever family to share my life with and bring so much joy to!

I’ve adjusted so well to being in my foster home and I continue to flourish each and every day! I’m still a bit shy and am learning about how to be more confident with new people. But once I’ve built that initial trust, I’m just a doll and am enjoying affection from my foster mom. I also do really well with my dog friend in my foster home! We co-exist really nicely with each other (I’m not super into constantly playing with another dog so I’d do best with a dog who is more easy going and can be a laid-back companion with me.) I have been a bit too curious towards cats when I’ve been introduced to them so I do need to be in a home without a cat friend.

What are some other adorable traits about me? Well…I’m really good at playing with my favorite “pie” toy-I love to carry it around wherever I go and it’s just the cutest! I think toys are like sprinkles of sugar on the donut of life! I also am potty trained and have adjusted just fine to being in a kennel when my foster mom is away during the day.

I do need to share one slightly embarrassing piece of information about myself (not something a lady like me wants to share at an initial meeting but I guess we do need to get to know each other pretty quickly to ensure we’re a great match!) I have something called incontinence, which basically means I sometimes can’t “hold” my pee in for longer periods of time (like throughout the night and on a longer day in the kennel.) I am on a medication that helps me control that a lot and I may need to be on that medicine long-term. I also have some skin allergies that have improved with a some medicine, special baths and a healthy diet of grain-free novel protein food (you’ll still see my nose has signs of those allergies but it’s continuing to heal and I feel so much better!) The total cost for both my medications is around $100/month.The nice folks at PawsCo can fill you in on the rest of the details about my medical needs but I do need a forever family who is understanding and patient with me with these needs.

So if you think that you’re ready for a completely devoted new friend, and are able to help me get more and more comfortable with the good life, then please send an email to adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. I can’t wait to meet you!

Meet Lilly!

Meet Lilly!

Lilly
Calico, Domestic Short Hair
Female
1 year old
6.4 lbs.

So, I was having a chat with myself just yesterday and I asked myself, “Lilly, what would make you the happiest cat ever?” The more I thought about it, the more I decided to tell myself how much I would just love to be part of a cute little family. You know, one with maybe another cat or a calm dog. Maybe one with a couple of older kids that would pet me and love me and never chase me. Ooh! One with a kind and gentle soul that would look into my beautiful eyes and know, just know instantaneously, how much of a kind and gentle soul I am, too.

Then I asked myself, “But Lilly, that’s a pretty tall order! Are you sure you are worthy of such an awesome family?” Which was really a pretty silly question for such a confident cat as I am, because absolutely I am worthy of such an awesome family! I think I am the total cat package: friendly, funny, sweet, polite, and, might I add…beautiful! Okay, so maybe I’m a little shy at first, but I think that’s just part of my charm. I warm up super quickly and I am always nice to anyone who is nice to me.

I almost started to ask myself how I thought I could ever find such a great place to call home, but then I remembered that I am a PawsCo cat! PawsCo is going to hook me up! There is nothing in my way but an easy-peasy adoption application and a quick email to my PawsCo friends!
