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 Max!

Max
Labrador/Shepherd mix
Male
8 months
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!

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!
