Meet Sprite!

Meet Sprite!

Sprite
Anatolian Shepherd Mix
Female
2 years old
86 lbs.

Have you been looking for a big dog with an equally big heart? Look no further—you found her! I’m a spritely young lady (see what I did there?) who has pretty much only one mission in life: to love you forever!

I’m still only two years old so we’ll be able to have tons of fun together. I love playing and being goofy, but my most favorite thing of all is to be by your side and cuddle. I’m confident on my own, but I love belonging to a family too–even if it’s just you and me!

What about the particulars, you ask? Well…this girl loves kiddos and I’m definitely a fan of cats. Dogs? Dogs are amazing! Dogs are my spirit animals! I’m also potty trained, great on a leash and am happy plopping down on my doggie bed at night (yep, your bed will still be “your” bed).

So if you are looking for a giant bundle of love to add to your family, make sure to send an email to adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/!

Meet Stitch!

Meet Stitch!

Stitch
Domestic Long Hair
Female
6 years old
18 lbs.

Meow! Hi friends of PawsCo. My name is Stich and I am fully aware of my cuteness. I am super friendly, confident, and chatty. Another way to describe these characteristics is…simply purrfect!

When I was little, I lived in a home with dogs and cats alike. I did well with those guys because I am a happy girl. I have a medium energy level, which means I won’t drive you, your pets, or your visitors crazy. I pride myself on being a pretty darn good housemate. My only request is that you feed me breakfast on time. My tummy gets hungry if you make me wait too long; I’m sure you understand.

I’m not a toy fanatic and I don’t feel the need to explore outside. My favorite part of life is when my people, or even new people, come into the house. I really, really love pets and being brushed and I know the more humans that are around, the more likely I am to have hands on me!

Well guys, that’s a little bit about me. To recap, I am perfectly cute, happy, and cool. I’m thinking you want to learn more about me! Thanks for considering me as an addition to your family. You can apply to adopt me on the PawsCo website or contact my friends at PawsCo to learn more!

Meet Pebbles!

Meet Pebbles!

Pebbles
Chihuahua Mix
Female
9 months old
5 lbs.

Hi! My name is Pebbles and I’m an itty bitty throwback pup — all the way from the Stone Age. I’m a little timid around my modern day surroundings, but with the right gentle hand and loving Bedrock home, no doubt I’ll blossom. Am I the Chihuahua mix you’ve been waiting for?

Remember The Flintstones? I’m too young to remember because I’m only 9 months old, after all! But I hear I resemble the Pebbles Flintstone both in stature and personality. I’m a pip squeak at five pounds and such a sweet girl.  I am loyal to my family and working to build up my confidence with new people.

I love parading my toys around, and all my prancing is guaranteed to make you laugh. My foster family says I have adjusted to my foster home so well and am eager to learn and be loved— how special is that? I’m even crate trained — my crate is like my cave, a safe place for me to rest and relax.

Currently, I’m living with two dogs in my foster home and I have so much fun with them! I enjoy their companionship and would do really well with another dog in my forever home too (please note that I’m a tad intimidated by really energetic bigger dogs so I will need a bit more time to warm up to that personality type!) I also am so gentle that my foster mom thinks I’d do just fine with a cat friend in the home too.

Are you the Fred or Wilma to my Pebbles? If you think so, fill out an adoption application on the PawsCo website and email my PawsCo friends to set-up a pre-historic meet and greet. I’ll be your forever baby girl!

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 (the total cost for the medication is $100/month.) I also have some skin allergies that have improved with a some 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 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!

Meet Blue!

Meet Blue!

Blue
American Staffordshire Terrier
Male
11 months old
62 lbs.

Hi! Look over here…the dog doing the happy dance with the wagging tail…yay! Hi again! I’m Blue and I absolutely love meeting new friends!

I used to be a “neglecterino,” as Ned Flanders on “The Simpsons” would say. I spent my days chained outside without shelter or water. But PawsCo is giving me the chance to find a happy forever home, and I couldn’t be more excited! Toys are fun! Walks are fun! Meeting other dogs is fun! Playing with the Chihuahuas in my foster home is fun!

Climbing up stairs…not so fun. It took me six days to muster the courage to try those strange things. But then I did it! Soon I bet stairs will be fun, too!

I’m great in a crate (hey, a rhyme…fun!) and housetrained. Walking on a leash is one of my specialties, but I don’t need a ton of exercise even though I’m still just a youngster. I’m also known for my sloppy kisses, wagging not just with my tail but my entire rear end, and snuggling with my teddy bear. I love affection and am just a silly, sweet, lovable guy!

Will you please give this comeback kid a second chance? Just email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. I will love you so much!

Meet Bubbie!

Meet Bubbie!

Bubbie
Domestic Short Hair
Male
5 years old
9 lbs.

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!

Meet Hank!

Meet Hank!

Hank
Beagle
Male
7 years old
31 lbs.

Well hello! I’m Hank and I’m proud to be a beagle.

Why wouldn’t I be? Snoopy was a beagle, for goodness’ sake. Charles Darwin sailed around the world on the HMS Beagle. A beagle named Uno was “Best in Show” at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 2008, and Miss P reclaimed that title for us in 2015. Everybody loves us!

That’s why I am just so happy to find my loving forever home! I can’t wait to bring tons of love and laughter to a wonderful family of my own. And I can tell you right now… you’ll just love spending so much time with me! I love lying on the couch next to somebody, goofing around with squeaky toys (even fetching!), or making people smile by hiding my nose under blankets or pillows. I’m one of those special dogs who even sleeps through the night!

I like to show off a bit on walks as I am such a polite walker and love going on walking adventures with my foster parents! I’d even be a great hiking dog (I’ve heard Colorado has some amazing trails that I would love to check out!) In fact, I love to go on walks so much that I’ll sit before I go outside. I also sit for treats and my food bowl. Yep, I’m pretty darn smart!

While I do just fine interacting with dogs out and about on walks, I’ve shown to be a bit too jealous of other dogs in the house and am not the biggest fan of sharing my space with another dog friend. Therefore, I’d do best in a home where I can be the only pooch in the house (but don’t worry…I have so much love to give, you won’t mind at all!) But I do just fine with cat friends so if you have a feline buddy in the house already, I’m happy to co-exist and be best of buds with them!

Can I please come home with you? Just email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. We’ll have more adventures together than Snoopy and Charlie Brown!

Meet Crush!

Meet Crush!

Crush
American Pit Bull Terrier mix
Female
2 years old
39 lbs.

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. I’m potty trained, sit and lie down when asked, and learned on my own the joy of giving kisses.

I’m sweet and loving with adults and kids alike! My one stipulation is I’d want to be the only female dog in the home. That way I can keep all the boys in line myself! I guess I’m a bit of a flirt with the fellas and love to wrestle and play, though I can get protective of my treats so hopefully the guys will know how to respect a woman.

I enjoy a long walk or a quick run, but my favorite thing to do is cuddle. Sure, I have bursts of energy, but only in spurts. I’m not destructive when left alone or anything like that. The most popular word to describe me with my PawsCo friends is “awesome”!

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 an awesome lady in your life, please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. We will have so much fun together!

Meet Tikki!

Meet Tikki!

Tikki
Manx Cat (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 Jamison!

Meet Jamison!

Jamison
Labrador Retriever/Boxer Mix
Male
4 months old
24 lbs. (and growing!)

Hi friend! I’m Jamison, and I’m super sweet!

Seriously, I’m like your favorite candy. I’m one of those loving, sweet boys–yes, my tail practically hurts from all the wagging I do! It’s just so fun to meet girl dogs and boy dogs and people and kids…there goes my tail again!

I really feel like the world is my oyster. Who knows what happiness I’ll find? I’m so ready to explore it if I can just find someone who will celebrate my enthusiasm for life! Right now, it seems like the possibilities are endless and I want to spread that positivity to as many folks as possible!

Oh, my tail is starting to wag thinking about it…here goes my wiggly rump too…what if I found a home where I could play? I’m such a puppy, so I’m ready to play until I crash into a blissful sleep. But then, I love to wake up and start wiggling again…and give my trademark kisses! I love giving puppy kisses!

I also love learning–I’m super eager to please! I already know “sit.” Next up: “down” and “come.” I’m one of those special dogs who is confident but also respectful. (And did I mention, playful? Let’s party!)

If you’re looking for a sweet wave of puppy love in your life, please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. What do you know…there goes my tail again!

Meet Thumper!

Meet Thumper!

Thumper
Domestic Short Hair
Male
14 years old
10 lbs.

Hello! How nice of you to stop by! It was my face that caught your eye, I’m sure; probably thinking to yourself, “Wow! What a handsome fellow!” Thanks, I get that a lot. So, yeah, I’m Thumper and I’m 14. If you are still reading, then, like me, you are very wise. You already know that an older cat is a relaxed cat, a mellow cat, an appreciative cat…..You already know that I’ll be fine by myself while you run a few errands, that your house will be fine, that your brand new leather couch will be fine…. You already know that I’m as happy to lounge in the sunny window as on your lap and that I prefer petting to playing. It would also be correct to assume that, as an older and wiser feline, I have many purrrrrls of wisdom to share about patience, loyalty, tenacity and unconditional love, and that I don’t mind hanging out with other chill cats.

What you might not know however, is just how much I love eating. Cat food, cat treats, that cake you left on the kitchen counter, that milk in your cereal bowl (what do you mean you weren’t done?). I’ve been compared to a dog in this manner, which I would find offensive it if wasn’t true. But think of it this way, you’ll never have to clean crumbs off the kitchen floor again because I’ll do it for you! I could be your sous chef! Maybe I’ll stop once I fatten back up now that my shelter hunger strike is over, but I’m not making any promises.

Since you’ve read this far, I guess I should also let you know that I’ve got a bit of an arthritic hip. It doesn’t stop me from doing everything I want to do, thanks to my arthritis medicine, but I do need to be a little more careful. For example, I don’t really need your help to get back down off the kitchen counter (really, just hide that cake!), but I would be grateful for a helping hand sometimes. My fast-moving days are behind me so I’d like to avoid a house with fast-moving hazards, like unfriendly dogs. On the plus side, (for you, anyway) is that although I am always on the lookout for a chance to explore the great outdoors, you’ll likely be able to catch me purrrrrty darn quick.

Anyhoo, I guess that’s enough about me. Why not tell me a little something about you? Go to the PawsCo website and fill out an adoption application. I already know, even before I read it, that you and I would be great together. We should set up a Meet & Greet! A quick email to my PawsCo friends will get the ball rolling!

Meet Kitty!

Meet Kitty!

Kitty
Domestic Long Hair
Female
14 years old
6 lbs.

My name is Miss Kitty and all you really need to know about me is that I LOVE LAPS. I love everybody and anybody that has a lap. I love laps of all shapes and sizes. Big laps, little laps, warm laps…a Facebooking lap too busy to pet me, or a lap with all the time in the world. You might be thinking that I’m prone to exaggeration and that certainly I must like to do more than spend all day in the comfort of a lap, but you’d be mistaken. If you lose your lap, I can definitely help you find it. It’s not hard to do really, I’ll just follow you around the house while you look for it, offering plaintive meows of encouragement, until eventually you sit down and then, viola! There it is – and there I’ll be!

I might need a little help getting into your lap, I mean, I am 14 years old, but once I’m there, man, I’m there to stay. If I learned one thing from my stretch in the shelter, it’s that a lap should never be taken for granted again. They are a thing of beauty and worthy of the utmost appreciation! Just ignore that face I make when you decide to get up, I really don’t mean anything by it. It’s just, well, a lap truly is my most favorite thing in the whole world. If laps were cupcakes, I’d be the World’s Fattest Cat!

As it stands though, I probably should eat a few dozen cupcakes. My undeserved and unwarranted time at the shelter really took a toll on me, what with the lack of laps and all, but I fully intend to regain my pleasingly plump figure as soon as possible. These dang teeth of mine, or lack of a few to be exact, are slowing things down a little (wet cat food only, please!) but I’m determined.

But back to laps, it should probably also be said that if I’m not sleeping on your lap, I’m gonna want to be sleeping in your bed. Like, right next to you. Like, under-the-covers-snuggle next to you. I hope you won’t mind. I know I won’t! I also don’t mind living with other cats provided there are enough laps to go around. So, please give me a call! A lap is a terrible thing to waste! The best way to reach me is via email. While you’re at it, tell me a bit about yourself, too! Head over to the PawsCo website and fill out an adoption application. I can’t wait to meet you!

Meet Sally!

Meet Sally!

Sally
Black Lab mix
Female
4 years old
53 lbs.

Hi, I’m Sally! I haven’t had the easiest life, but all that is behind me now that I’m in a foster home. My first owners weren’t very nice to me; 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 pup 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 very 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! And don’t worry – I’m also pretty trustworthy if left alone at home.

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!)

I adore people but might take a little while to build up trust with new humans. I’m a sensitive soul and can be a little timid, but I always come out of my shell and truly enjoy finding new people to share my love with.

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 adopt@pawscoadoptions.org. I’ll be waiting for you!

Meet Claire!

Meet Claire!

Claire
Domestic shorthair
Female
14 years old
9 lbs.

What’s today’s date? What! It’s 2017 already?

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/.

Meet Dakota!

Meet Dakota!

Dakota
German Shepherd
Female
4 years old
73 pounds

Hi there! I’m Dakota and I’m hoping you’ll be my best friend!

Sorry, did I come on too strong? This whole find-your-match thing is tricky! Potential partners can be intimidated because I have beauty and brains. I started as a stray and got pretty keyed up when I was forced to stay in a stressful shelter environment, but now I am so happy to be in the PawsCo foster system getting ready for the perfect forever home! So yes, I’m laying my cards on the table: I’m looking for true love.

I know, I know, I’m probably not playing by “The Rules” admitting that I want to find a home that offers stability, a routine, and love. I should flirt and play hard to get and not answer your calls, but that’s not my style! I’m friendly to people and other dogs because I want to be accepted so badly! I’d be a great pet because I’m not super hyper–I have that nice medium energy. A little tug of war or play with a ball is heaven!

Sure, I have some quirks. I don’t understand why people stare at the box they call television, so I try to stare back to see what all the fuss is about (yes, I’m told it’s cute). Cats make me nervous. Maybe it’s because they’re so coy, which I know nothing about. I prefer to snuggle in close for affection or follow people around like the proud dog that I am. I know there’s a reason why canines are called man’s best friend!

If you’re looking for loyalty and love, please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. We will be so happy together!
