About Mama Coco *Special Needs*

 There's so much to love about Mama Coco! This adorable, silly senior makes everyone smile with her snorts, snores, and loving personality. Coco is a companion dog through and through, and is happiest when she's spending time by your side. She's the kind of dog who will follow you around the house just because she's so interested in what you're doing (especially if it might result in some treats or butt scratches)! Overall, she's an incredibly sweet soul who just wants to love and be loved. As a senior bull dog, Mama Coco is looking for a very special adopter. She has a laundry list of health issues, including ear disease, glaucoma, skin disease requiring a special diet, and a small mast cell tumor and soft palate issue that will likely require surgery down the road. This wonderful girl is absolutely worth it, and once you meet her we know you'll agree. Drop us a line about Mama Coco and get ready to fall in love!

 Friendly Bernard is a handsome boy looking for the perfect cuddle companion! Bernard looks like a tough guy but is the biggest softy around. This handsome boy loves head rubs, belly rubs, back rubs and really any kind of rub. He really warms up to anyone willing to pet him and will put up with a little bit of feather play time before going back for more pets. He is getting used to living in a home but honestly couldn’t love it more. Give him a rub and a nice couch and that’s all this friendly boy wants in his life. Bernard is FeLV positive. FeLV stands for Feline Leukemia Virus. It is a viral infection of cats that affects a cat’s immune system. FeLV is not contagious to humans or other species such as dogs, but it is to other cats so Bernard should be an only cat or live in a home with other FeLV positive cats. While there is currently no cure, with the right supportive care Bernard can go on to live a perfectly happy, normal life!

 Bobby is seriously the best boy! He is a super sweet and affectionate guy who loves to always be right by side! He loves to look up at you adoringly, make air biscuits and will give head bunks as a sign of affection. He is obsessed with cat nip toys and will roll around with them keeping himself occupied for long periods of time. He likes to talk and loves to demand treats. He can also live with a cat friendly cat! He would do best in a home with no small children as their energy makes him nervous.  Age: 4 years old  How I came to PAWS: Found stray Animal ID#: A43882590 ​I am not at the shelter.

 Chompers is a very special cat in need of a very special home! He is an absolute joy to have around, just has slightly limited mobility and may need an extra hand here and there as he explores. He loves attention and is content to sit with you on your bed or couch and purr up a storm as you pet his super soft fur! He keeps himself occupied fairly well, likes playing with his little stuffed mouse toy and lounging as he watches the world go by.  Chomper has suspected Cerebella Hypoplasia (CH)- or "wobbly cat syndrome." Cats are born with this condition, and it will affect him for life without getting worse or better. CH occurs in-utero when the part of a cat's brain that controls motion isn't fully developed by the time they are born. Some cats have very light forms of CH, while others will be extra wobbly! Chompers is somewhere in the middle- he generally can get around just fine, but sometimes needs a little help when trying to jump in bed, for example. He can navigate small steps, but would do best without access to full stair cases, to keep him safe (he can go up, but getting down is much tougher and less safe). He has learned to improvise well with this slight limitation, but he does not climb much, rarely uses his claws (only on a scratching post, never in play) and generally just loves to take things easy and hang around his people. Chompers likes short cat trees, and loves his scratching posts. CH cats generally have an easier time in carpeted areas, but while his mobility is technically limited he has few issues getting around his foster home. He does have some sensitivity toward his lower back that prompts him to roll over when touched there, so an adults-only home may be a better match for him. He would be content with a family that's around a lot (even older or retired folks!) to give him attention, but who can be very mindful of his condition and help him out should he get stuck somewhere.  PAWS has done several diagnostics on Chompers, and he looks pretty healthy besides having CH. But if someone wanted to look further into the condition at their own vet, they are welcome to! Chompers still appears to have a great quality of life and doesn't think there is anything 'wrong' with him- he still lives his life to the fullest!

 It's easy to smile when you're with Clifford! This playful and fun-loving guy is full of joy and enthusiasm. His tail starts wagging as soon as he sees you walking towards him (especially if you're holding a leash)! We think Clifford must have been a family pet at some point since he's house-trained, super affectionate, and thoroughly enjoys car rides. Clifford is also happy to show off when there's a tasty treat involved, and has already earned 'sit' and 'come'. Clifford is a active boy who would love lots of space to run around and play, and he may get along with another dog friend depending on a meet!

  This glorious big black cat with stunning green eyes is looking for a forever family to spend his days with. Duffy is approximately 10+ years old and is a great companion cat. His front paws have been declawed, but that doesn’t stop him from making biscuits. He is really low key and is happy to lounge on any soft surface during the day. He loves to be brushed and receive chin scratches. He doesn’t hesitate to roll around on the floor, purring, to let you know he would like more. He would do just fine with a family who might be gone for much of the day. Despite not having teeth, he absolutely loves his food, and can be coaxed to do anything for a treat! He has great house manners and is very neat with his litter box. He would thrive in a household of all ages, including gentle young children.

 Do you like strong women? Then Fortuna is the cat for you! This survivor was found crying for help under a car in Old City. She was very underweight, grey from grime, and had an old break to her front leg that had healed poorly, rendering her leg unusable. After a Good Samaritan saved her, PAWS vets determined that the broken leg was causing Fortuna a lot of pain, so she had an amputation and entered foster care to recover. She has transformed from a scrawny, sad and dirty cat to a beautiful, happy and robust tripod! She gets around perfectly well on three legs. In fact, her little bunny hop is completely adorable. In case you were worried, she has perfect litter box habits despite the missing leg.  She loves to tuck into bed for a long snooze and is a quiet cat who would do well in a calm home where she is the only cat and her family consists of adults and respectful children (she's not a huge fan of being picked up).  Her truest enemy in the world is the vacuum cleaner.  She is very sweet, though a bit reserved, and would love an understanding home where she can blossom at her own pace. You can also see more pictures of her on Instagram at @gabz73. Age: 4-5 years How I came to PAWS: Rescued as an injured stray Animal ID#: A43469884 ​I am not at the shelter.

  Gilligan is steering his way straight to your heart! With his goofy grin and gregarious personality, it's hard to believe Gilligan was found on the city streets. He's an older guy that's bouncy and playful, full of energy and enthusiasm. Gilligan enjoys morning jogs and outdoor adventures, but also knows how to settle down for relaxed couch time at the end of a fun day. Gilligan will be a great fit for a dog-experienced household that enjoys staying active and having fun as much as he does!
