You have heard of Abbey Road, Lady Jane, Jane Eyre, Jane Jetson, Calamity Jane, etc. But wait 'till you get a load of me! I am not just any Jane! I am Abby Jane! Your brand new Abby Jane. Heck! Most people adopt a new dog and have to figure out their middle name(s) to use when naughtiness occurs. Others get a second middle name to be pulled out when their new owner is overcome with wuv. (Wuv: a unique emotion of endearment welling up because of a doggie encounter). I dig some cats, other dogs, and kids. Thing is, I've not had a tremendous amount of experience with children, so it would be best if I get to have some that have sprouted some deeper roots (9 & older). Like many genteel ladies, I want to be the boss when in the company of other tittering ladies. I also do not understand how a crate fits in with my elevated breeding. Well, I will be Jumpin' Jane Flashin' at the center until you come and meet me any time that PAWS is open to the public!

Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee! Nah, my name is Abby! I am a very energetic and happy girl. I really am still a puppy in many ways, but my body is that of a big girl. I am looking for a home with folks that are really into exercise and want a new partner. I really need this. I lived with a little female dog, but have never been around dudes. I can be a bit weak-kneed around bigger dogs. Though I am not a resource-guarder, I am that friend who thinks nothing of grabbing fries off of another's plate. Kids-LOVE THEM. I get very excited and jumpy, so I need a grown-up who is ready and willing to be my top-dog. I am house-broken but may have some accidents in a new home. No biggie-routine and feelings of safety and security will do the trick. I love peanut butter and belly rubs. Get this-I know "Sit," "Shake," "Lay down," and even "Leave it." So, that's me! You can meet my beautiful self at PAWS on Sundays from noon to 2pm!

Breed: Coonhound

Color: Tricolor

Hello, I’m Abe, a well-mannered 7-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound who weighs about 85 pounds. Treeing raccoons is probably lots of fun, but I’ve been raised as a house pet, and I love to spend as much time as possible with my people! I’m easy to walk on a leash…well, unless I see or smell something that I think would be fun to chase, then I can get a bit excited and pull. I’m housebroken, but not crate-trained. However, I can be trusted in the house alone.I like to take long walks in the woods and play in streams; it takes a lot to tire me out! But I also don’t mind just hanging out as long as my person is near. If you think you might like me for your very own, please read up on my breed at http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/treeingwalkercoonhound.htm. I'm a total sweetheart and I’m looking forward to meeting you! Xoxoxoxo!

"Ace is the place with the helpful hardware pup!" Gotta love that jingle! Especially because it is about me. I am incredibly helpful! My skills include: cat whispering, other dog whisperings, kid whisperer, and I know I can put my spell on you too. Hey, look! I am a baby, though. This means that it is very important for me to find a home where I will be house, crate, and behaviorally trained. Sure, my deposits are Tootsie rolls, and any puddle I generate is nickel-sized, that is no reason to keep me from my big boy self because it seems so cute. I want you to think I am a blessing when I get older and already have myself together. I am living in a swinging foster home right now. You can come and draw an Ace of an experience with me Sundays from noon until 2:00 p.m.

Still very much a puppy, I am looking for someone who is willing to help me finalize my journey from whelp to big boy. Wouldn't that be amazing?!? Anyway, Let's do my interview now. Cats? Good to get this out of the way at the beginning. Truth is, I like to herd cats. I also like to pin them so I can get my wrestling points each day. For me-great past time. This is, however, frowned upon by most cats. Not that I can read that stoic as Sphinx expression. Other dogs-I love them! Children- I love them too. I am dreaming of a home with kids 5 and older though. Keep me from herding kids... I am crate trained. I am living at the center right now. My new friends tell me that there is a "cat wing." Why would they give cats wings? It is an exercise in determined habit-kicking to not dwell on the fact that there are cats here. They are so close, and yet so far away. It would be great for you to come visit me during open hours. We could take a nice walk together!

I have a new roommate named Zinnia and we’re becoming best friends. My favorite activity is watching the birds outside our window. Thank you to the PAWS volunteers who keep the bird feeder filled! An important thing you should know is that that I’ve tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), but currently, I'm healthy. Cats with FIV can live a normal life for many years. People and dogs can’t get FIV from me and the only way I could give FIV to another cat is from a deep bite wound. If you want to learn more about FIV, you can talk to a PAWS Adoption Counselor or look on the website of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. Please ask to meet me and my friend Zinnia when you visit during open hours. See you soon!

Hello! I am Artemis, the Greek Doggess of the hunt, forests, hills, the Moon, and ... archery? (I am a little nervous about that last one. And you should be too.) But not too nervous to welcome me into your home. I mean, think about it. How many opportunities have you had up until now to throw the door open for an authentically gorgeous Doggess? Tell the truth-that answer would be zero. Like the rest of my Husky pals, I have much to reveal in the days to come. PAWS does know that I really like other dogs. But aside from that, I am looking for a person or family willing to patiently hang in there with me as a grow from being a rescue to a member of your home.

Color: Black

A dignified and thoughtful hello to you. My name is Atlas-a handle reserved for the strong and mighty. This description is certainly fitting for me, but like many creatures-humans included-my mightiness may not be apparent upon first introductions. In other words, I am reserved and need some time to look you over from head-to-toe. (At least you only have to wait for me to do this twice-once for each leg. Scrutinizing my species requires a bit more time and end-to-end consideration.) You see my strength is very much an internal superpower. Sure, I am incredibly great to look at and my physique is unmatched. But the weight of the world that I have shouldered has much more to do with feeling very small and all alone in a huge world. The big things about humans can be overwhelming for a perceptive guy like myself. You may be thinking about cruelty and ignorance-not me. I am thinking about the power of human kindness and the depth of devotion. I see them coming towards me with every outstretched hand and they begin to come alive in me as my first reaction. It is staggering for a sensitive guy like me. So I am asking for patience. Big feelings for any young creatures require tenderness and a very well choreographed long, slow dance. I am told there is pure joy on the other side for both of us! I love other dogs and want to be able to share my new home with one. Children are absolutely darling. I am thinking that some little humans age 5 and up would be great to nurture. (I might be a bit overwhelmed with the spontaneity of little ones.) And as far as home-skills go, so far I have been keeping that under my vest with my new friends at PAWS. So, put on your favorite ballad, sit with me, let me ask you to the dance.

Reason at PAWS:

Sex: Male

Hello! My name is Auggie! Yes, being a shapeshifter between dog and little black bear, it may be confusing. What is tried and true about me is that I am a dear, sweet old guy looking for someone to share love in my retirement. I tried Match.com. But I kept getting 20-somethings. It was flattering at first. But they just kept wanting to munch up all of my treats. So I headed on over to the center and found dogs my speed, like CC here. (Clearly we are sharing deep thoughts.) I am non-nonchalant about cats, but really like other dogs and children ages 5 and up. (Little ones come with too many surprises for an older gent like me.) I like walks, pets, cuddling, etc. And my mane of fur is as soft and appealing as it appears. No balding at all and I sport a grey goatee! I am also partially deaf...or am I? NEW PUPDATE: My caretakers at PAWS realized that everything about my ears, except the lush locks that frame my face, were causing me a great deal of discomfort. They took me to have a surgery to take all of that away. I feel so much better now (even though I had to wear that darn cone.) So it has come to pass that I no longer hear the sounds of life around me. I am really not sad about this because I am comfortable. Also-my favorite sense organ is still intact-my snout! I am living in wonderful foster home. You can meet me on Sundays from noon until 2:00 at PAWS. Us old guys and gals just love your touch, attention, and affection. Make sure that when you stop by to ask for me.Who knows, your heart strings may snap and you'll say-yep, Auggie can retire with me.

Aurora is petite but feisty! Her foster mom says she’s tiny but knows how to stand her ground. She’s playful – she loves her rope toy and her own tail – and mischievous – she loves to explore the kitchen counter, the tabletop, and the curtains. When she’s in the mood, Aurora likes being petted and will settle down near you on the couch, but she’s independent and not a fan of being picked up. Aurora’s ideal home would have a cat playmate who lets her be the top cat. Aurora is sometimes nippy when she gets excited, so if there are kids in her home, they should be cat-savvy teens. If Aurora could speak, she’d remind you of George Will’s famous quote, “The phrase ‘domestic cat’ is an oxymoron.” =^..^=

I have the diplomacy to resolve issues in both the canine and feline unions. I am completely vested in enriching the lives of children. True, I do have some critical finishing work to address with a new family or person. For example, I am thinking that stop, stoop, and poop will not win me any elections. Neither will look the other way and don't see me pee. I am so gifted, though, that with some tasty incentives and lots of praise for well-placed deposits I will have the doggy discipline required on the international stage. We can even set up a fine office for me in the crate where I can write my speeches.

Hi, my name is Axel and I’m conflicted. At least, that’s what I’ve heard the volunteers say. In my mind, “conflicted” means I don’t know whether I want the tuna shreds or the chicken pate. Or whether I want to be scritched under the chin or behind the ears. But apparently right now, at this point in my furry, feline life, “conflicted” means I don’t know whether I want love and pets or whether I’m too scared for love and pets, so I don’t know whether to hiss or purr! I need a patient, loving adopter who can resolve my conflicts and help me get on with my life. Once I’m adopted, I’ll be happy to let my new family know that tuna and chin scritches are the best!

I am a little shy right now and everything new is so amazing that I stop in my tracks-or army crawl on my belly. I had the opportunity to dwell with Blessings and Fortune and found that having other dogs around does my spirit of adventure a lot of good. It would be terrific to find a home with another dog buddy. I am house trained and doing well in the crate. I like children, but with being so timid, it might be nice to live with kids 9 and older. Honestly, as I live with my foster mom, I find I like people an awful lot. Following her around makes me very happy. You can come spend time with me on Sundays from noon until 2:00.

Like the rest of my otherworldly friends, not a whole lot is known about me except that I really like other doGs.

Don't give an ear to the others-'twas me who forged the trail and led them here to the promised land, and all that stuff. Despite my unyielding bravery, I am the kind of swashbuckling gal who savors the tenderness of kindness towards other dogs, cats, and kids. The only gifts of gusto that I will need in my new home are house and crate training. It humbles me to admit it, but even though I could follow the North Star to get us here, I still don't know where to dip my rear and plant my deposits appropriately. Being a wiley kind of gal, I am itching for just your brand of patience and perseverance to set me on the correct course. How does that sound? A bit messy at times-sure. But I'll pick up the skills quickly. You just might have to pick up something else in the meantime. Well, if that's you out there crooning for me-hitch yourself on up and mosey to PAWS on Sundays from noon until 2:00.

Reason at PAWS:

Sex: Male

Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier/Mixed Breed - Medium

Color: Brindle and White

Bandit is a 2-year-old, ~45 lb mixed breed with lots of love and personality to go around! He is house and crate trained, smart as a whip and easy to train! He knows lots of commands (sit, lie down, shake, stay, leave it, and wait) and is learning to heel well on a leash. He would make an excellent hiking or running companion. Bandit is playful and sweet, with a harmless mischievous side to make you giggle. He LOVES his people, and shows it through lots of cuddles and doggie kisses. He needs to let some energy out every day, but then is happy to lounge in the sun, nap in his crate, or cuddle up on the couch. He is good with older children, cats, and some dogs. He LOVES his canine foster sister and is working hard in training with his friends at PAWS to learn how to trust other dogs. He has improved tremendously and has a growing group of doggie friends! Bandit is spending the summer at PAWS and can be visited anytime during open hours.

Stick 'em up! I am Bandit, Rowdy's onyx-colored buddy; an outlaw intent on stealing your heart. Bravado set aside, I am a sweet guy who likes cats and other dogs. I am house and crate trained, so aside from a brief bit of time for home and hearth acclimation, I am good to go. Not enough is know about be in terms of children. Because of this, PAWS is thinking a home with wise, gentle kids 9 and older would be a dream combination for all involved. Having just traveled over hill and dale on horseback from Freedom Fences in South Carolina just to find you, I am simply alive with all of the excitement. Know that I have given up my life of crime just to be your new buddy.

Yes, I have had quite the film career. Preferring action to romance, I thrive on doing my own stunts-as long as there is something tasty in it for me. I just arrived at this agency with my brother, Mutt. We were told that PAWS is exceptionally good at finding feature family performance gigs that would star-Us! Truthfully, I find myself to be the more dashing of the two of us. Sporting a 5 o'clock shadow about my muzzle, I ooze masculinity and adventure. Of course, I am a puppy, so some of my sophistication needs to come from my new gig. For example, like most whelps, I need some help programming my potty GPS to outside. Also, what's up with that thing you attach to my manly necklace? I think I will need some instruction on the benefits of being tied to you. Dreams of DoggyWood have me less acquainted with my den instincts-so I am thinking that we'll probably need a sit-down about the crate. Those things out of the way, I am malleable to engaging with what life with you has to offer. I am living with my bro in a sweet foster home. You can meet me on Sundays from noon until 2:00. Remember, I am the handsome one!

Hello! My name is Barney! And no-I am not related to that Big Purple Dinosaur, Fred Flintstone's buddy Barney Rubble nor Andy Griffith's Deputy. I am simply my own self-an ace puppy who just arrived at PAWS from Freedom Fences in South Carolina. I actually learned that sexy, "crawling to you" pose by cruising through magazines and imitating fab models. Making confetti out of those magazines was fun work too. So, I am good with everybody and everything: other dogs, cats, and those people pups you call children. Let's be very clear here. I am a baby-so I need all the patience and mentorship you can muster to help me grow from a wee lad to house and crate trained fellow. It is a magical and mystical journey that only those truly brave souls survive. That's a bit too much hyperbole. I just need your patience, diligence, love, and support. I need you. I am living in a great foster home right now with my sibs. You can come strike a pose with me on Sundays from noon until 2:00.

Hi, my name is Beagle. You might wonder why I have a dog name. Good question. The answer is that I was a stray cat found by a PAWS dog volunteer. (I’ve been assured that if a PAWS cat volunteer finds a stray dog, the dog will be named Spotted Tabby.) I’m a very affectionate, touchy-feely cat. When you pet my head, I will roll onto my back, wriggle around, and invite you to pet my tummy. One of the volunteers says I have a “wonderful, inviting personality.” You should know that I will want to be a helper cat for my new person. For example, I will help my person write by rubbing against their hand or possibly sitting on their keyboard. I’m multi-talented and unique. You can’t tell this from my picture, but I have some whiskers that are all white, some whiskers that are all black, and some whiskers that are both black and white. You can pet me and admire my pretty whiskers whenever PAWS is open.

Coming from Freedom Fences in the South just a couple of weeks ago, I am gearing up for "weather" here in PA. The other dogs at PAWS claim that there is actually cotton that floats down from the sky, blanketing the Earth. They say that you can even shovel it onto your snout. Can't wait! Well, I love other dogs and kids ages 9 and up. I am asking for this just because of my lack of familiarity with your puppies. Of course I am house and crate trained. I can't wait to meet you! I know we can make a great home together. I am living at the center and can play with you any time PAWS is open to the public!

Yo! I am a little young dude who just came to PAWS with my big brother Dak. He is still showing me the ropes on how to inflate my persona to hide my size. That is an important trait that separates Chihuahuas from many other little critters that run and hide, like chipmunks. Oooo wait till I get my paws on one of them! So, like Dak, not a lot is known about me and my yens. WE have been a dynamic duo, living in our world of superiority. I have released the news that I am good with some other dogs. But, I have yet to experience kids and cats. I am sure that PAWS will run me through these drills to see I reveal. In the meantime, I am dwelling in the house with Dak.

Sure, my picture portrays me as meek and humble-perhaps even a bit loopy. But I am Beethoven! Perhaps a bit over being told to "roll over, Beethoven." (Get's old fast.) Such nonsense does not suit a classical composer of time-tested, immortal, auditory masterpieces all wrapped up in a tiny, furry, cuddly package. Being just a babe, my compositions tend to come to me while in the crate. Woeful tunes of days gone by stirring even the strongest man's harpsichord strings. In short-I am a baby who is looking for a person or family well-fitted with whelp-training patience, diligence, and fortitude known to few, mastered by some. I am looking for you! Don't look around-I am wagging at you. I do come already equipped with not only adorability but also a refreshing grasp of loving other dogs, cats, and children. I am living with my siblings in a swell foster home. You can come join my chorus on Sundays from noon until 2:00.

Hello, I’m Bella Rose. Are you looking for a quiet, gentle companion? If so, I might be the right cat for you. My idea of a perfect day is to sit on your lap purring while you stroke my silky coat and tell me how beautiful I am! I’ll bet you can feel your stress melt away just thinking about it. I would be very happy in a quiet home where I get lots of affection and attention from my people. I don’t like to share the attention with other cats, so I think I'd be happiest as an only cat, but I would be OK with another cat who gave me plenty of space. I like kids as long as they’re kind of quiet and old enough to know they should pet me gently. Please ask to meet me when you visit PAWS!!

Benji really enjoys children and is even living with a foster sister! She actually speaks "Dawg" and many PAWS fosters have graduated from her home with new doggie skills. That said, Benji is already house and crate trained. He even understands the mechanics of underground fencing. Benji used this interview to disclose his likes and fears. Topping off his list of favorite pastimes are digging, licking, kissing, car rides, and flat out snuggling. He quietly let us know that he is afraid of fireworks. I mean, why should the air explode like that anyway? Well, Benji is all a-flutter waiting for you.

Whoa, Bessie! That's me! An eye-popping, knockout babe just sacheting about my foster home with my siblings. We traveled through dips, dives, and deserts to get to PAWS from Freedom Fences in South Carolina. Strumming banjos by firelight and eating beans, we wove magnificent tails of the lives we would find here in Central PA. What we failed to include, purely out of ignorance, was the need to sport fine outerwear against the nippy mornings. Burr-it's cold here! Anyhoo, being a Southern Belle fully equipped with all of the necessary charms, I love other dogs, cats, and children. The one thing that I need to fully realize the finery of being a true lady is ... puppy training. I blush to mention that I may not completely realize just where to deposit my...you know whats. I would be beholdin' to you should you grace me with your warm, tender, loving patience and help me cross the street on this one. Being a graceful lady is just a hop, skip, and yowl away if you are willing to persevere. I am dwelling on Plantation Foster Home with my talented siblings.

I’ve watched him lie on a visitor’s lap for half an hour. He drools when he’s happy (also when he naps). He naps a lot!

I realize that so many images must come to mind upon the utterance of my name. Cruising the driveway as or with a child. Danny taking in the hallways of the Overlook Hotel. Plastic flat tires. Blown out sneakers. There's more, but let's dip our toes into a refreshing novelty visage: Moi! Muscular and bold. Dashing and always well-attired in a black and tan tux. And, wow, what an air of curious mystery! Not a lot is known about me as I stepped in from the raw winds of the day in search of a new story seasoned with the light of loved ones. As with any dapper dandy, I am housetrained, of course. But that's the limit of any secrets shared at PAWS. Because of my Bond-like essence of the unknown, we have decided that a home with humans aged 9 and above would be the best fit for me. I am looking at you and thinking, Could it be that "through the too many miles and too little smiles, I still remember you." Dogs are like that. You tell yourselves that you choose us. But we have been looking for you all along.

Billy Goat is the perfect name for me, not only because I have a teeny goatee, but also because I like to be up high. The kind human who rescued me says I would get so excited when she came into the room that I would try to climb her. Given an assist, I loved to ride around on her shoulders! She says when I get adopted, my new human probably can teach me to jump into their arms. I would definitely like to give that a try! My rescuer also says I can be kind of demanding because I love attention, but you and I both know that cats who wants lots of attention are the best kind of cats!

As you can see from my birthdate, I’m a senior gentleman cat and it may take me a little while to adapt to a new home, but I have the dignity and wisdom that goes along with my age, which is a huge plus if you need relationship advice.

Because I was a stray, not a whole lot is known about me aside from my good looks and yen to play.

Or maybe a croupier dealing cards in the kind of casino you see in old James Bond movies where all the coolest cats are wearing a tux. But sadly, he discovered that to hold cards in your paws, you need opposable thumbs. So, Jack needs a home. He would like you to know that he loves to be petted, will roll over and show you his belly just to be friendly, and has terrific lap-sitting skills. He gets along great with other cats, especially his brother, Casper (his snuggle buddy), and fellow foster, Obie (his wrestling buddy). Also, he does know how to gamble and says that if you will hold the cards and promise not to peek at his hand, he’ll teach you to play hearts.

My name is true down to every interpretation of the word. I am Blessings! No, no, I am not clergy, but the Vatican did summon me once or twice. I get summoned almost every second of every day by humans everywhere. I do believe firmly in doG. After all, he created us with humans in mind, knowing you would really need us. You really do need me. My brother, Fortune and I traveled air, land, and sea to find our new homes at PAWS. We spent a few overnights with our bidographer, as she was keen on knowing more about us. She quickly (and I mean within nanoseconds) realized just how friendly, loving, and willing to help I am. For example: floor care-I tested all dust piles with my olfactory prowess. Sure-I might have dispersed the pile again on exhale. But at least she knew it was safe. Mopping-no better way to show how clean the floors are than with some paw prints to compare areas. Also, when the mop was running low on water, a nice nudge to the bucket provided more. Laundry-I actively provided pre-wash for undergarments. Same with dishes. And meal time! I was right there to cheer her on and let her know that I am not picky, just starving. (Always starving...) I did not have any accidents either. And I like the crate, just don't use a wooden one like my bidographer. I love other dogs and children! With them, Blessings collide and produce Wuv, a higher form of love. Well that's me!

Like most teenage boys, Blinky is expert gamer. No, not video games or soccer (although we think he’d be a terrific soccer player). Blinky loves to play with wand toys. When he sees one, he hurls himself into action, stalking, chasing, pouncing, and swatting. He’s a fun kitten and all he requires is a human to wave a wand toy around in front of him (that’s you). Never will you have so much fun for so little effort! In fact, simply watching Blinky as he lies next to the window and watches the birds at the feeder is entertaining because you can tell from the way he wiggles around that he wants so badly to stalk, chase, pounce, and swat them. Blinky also has a sweet, quiet side that shows itself after he’s worn himself out. Whether you meet Blinky when he’s feeling energetic or when he’s feeling mellow, we know you’ll love him!

I am Bob! So many Bobs past, present, and future that I bet you have a hard time distinguishing. Though I am not a TV psychologist like Bob Newhart, or a burger joint as in Bob's Burgers (Mmmmm burgers...), I certainly am as classy. As you can see in my photo, I have just returned from the barber and am looking and smelling mighty fine. The benefits of the aftermath have not yet outweighed the experience of the bath, however. That was kind of dicey for me. I need practice. Speaking of practice, I am hoping that you are into patiently helping me to acquire some domestic skills. Though not a puppy, I do have the same puppy needs when I get home with you. I have yet to experience cats, so I don't know how I feel about them. But I can tell you that I really like other dogs and children very much. Well, that's me! I cannot wait to meet you!

Color: Orange Tabby

I’m Bobbi, an oh so handsome orange tabby with bullseye markings. I came to PAWS with four siblings and we were all terrified in this scary new place. I’m starting to come along though…..I don’t run from people entering my room anymore and you can pet me so long as you approach me slowly and gently. It won’t be long before you know that you’ve hit the bullseye if you decide to take me home! Please visit me anytime PAWS is open.

Come listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed, a poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed. Then one day he was shootin' at some food. And up from the ground came a bubblin' crude. Oil, that is! Black gold. Texas Tea. So, no. I am not Jed, rather his trusted nephew, Jethro Bodine. People 'round here call me Bodine. Reason for the opening number? Well, I feel like I've struck oil/gold here at PAWS. I live in a mighty fine condo with terrific neighbors. We get all giddy with chatter about the lives we will get to have very soon. I just came to PAWS from another county. My professional profile is as follows: Cats-Transparency her; I play too ruff with them. I have crushed many feline friendships over my exuberant play patterns. Preserve their mental health and seek another canine. A cat whose mental health has short-circuited is not a pretty picture. Other dogs-love them and all the stars above them! They dig me. The actually tend to dig up a lot of things. Your children- Love to the moon and back! As you can see, I have a celestial pattern to life. House trained-Bingo! So, what am I looking for? Glad you asked. I would really like to have a person with whom I can exercise. I ain't too proud to beg, but I can keep up and would make a fine running buddy. So that is me. As I said, I dwell at PAWS and would just love to meet you any time the center is open to the public. Oh-and in keeping with the times, I can actually rap that opening diddy while break dancing.

I am Bolt. Hello! When the time came for me to move to PAWS, I bolted eagerly into the cat carrier, settled down, and got ready for a new adventure! This means that when it’s time for you to take me to the “Vet” for something called my “annual check-up,” I will walk right into my carrier. No problem! By the way, what is a “Vet” and what happens there? Whatever. I’m sure it’ll be fun! Anyway, besides being an adventurous sort of cat, I’m easy-going and very friendly. I think you and I will be friends! Be sure to ask for me, Bolt, when you visit PAWS on the weekend. See you soon!

Hi, I’m Bonnie and I’m a little shy but gentle and sweet. It takes me a while to warm up to new people but when I do, I’m loving and playful. And just look at my beautiful markings! I’m a “classic” tabby, which some people call a bullseye tabby. You probably didn’t know a bullseye tabby is exactly the kind of kitty you’ve been looking for, but you do now! Just ask to meet me when you visit PAWS during open hours.

Hello! I’m Boots and I’m bringing you a message from my holiday foster mom. Here it is! “Boots adjusted to our home right away. He followed me around most of the time and loved to explore the whole house. Boots was very friendly to all of the cats in the house but wanted to play more than they did. I think Boots would do great with very playful cats. He loves the laser, and catnip toys. He also loved his corrugated cardboard scratcher and cardboard boxes. Sometimes he loves belly rubs and will stretch allll the way out. Boots would be a great family cat where he will have lots of attention!” After reading that I’m a super wonderful cat, I bet you want to meet me! I live at PAWS so I’m available for visits and playtime whenever PAWS is open.

Okay, so Little Bo Peep did, in fact, lose her sheep and couldn't recall quite where to find them. That was quite a long time ago and I am the 50th generation of the Peep lineage and use GPS. Also, not really being into sheep because I can't carry a sheep hook and I find the job rather boring, I have turned to putting the Peep into Peeple. I just love you guys! You have hands, with fingers, with nails to give me pets and ear scratches. Ahhhh. It makes swoon just thinking about it. So, I just came on over to PAWS with my daughter Vanelope in search of my new peeps. I like other dogs, but don't herd and will not be herded. I also really love your children. And as in all fairy tales, I am house trained. Duh! I am hanging out with my daughter at the center and can meet you any time PAWS is open to the public.

Hi, my name is Brooklyn. Would you like to adopt a lap cat who actually enjoys being picked up, cuddled, and carried around? If so, I’m your girl! I have silky fur and a little round tummy that’s perfect for snuggling. And I have very nice manners! My former foster mom said I wouldn’t jump into her lap until she gave it a little pat to let her know it was OK. Then I’d settle down and stay because I know my most important job is to be my human’s companion. I slept on my foster mom’s bed every night, but sometimes I would sneak out to the living room and play with my toys while she was asleep! I love people but sometimes I get exasperated if I'm petted too hard or for too long, so I'll do best with older kids. You can visit me whenever PAWS is open!

So, you will read about the Dragonslayer that protects Centre County. I stand ready to tell the tail of how dragons have found their way to us from the olde Norse country. I truly am a descendant of the canine line of Valkyries. A warrior myself, and daughter of the God Odin, I am technically Dragonslayer's boss. And yet, I do not see him or any of the dogs on Sunday paying me homage as I glide by to do my goddess business outside. Woa-ez me! As a princess, I dwelt with both canines and felines. Also, a gal of my status, I always make my personal deposits out of doors. Because I have been inhabiting the earth for many a moons, I am considered a "Senior." This is so because of my wisdom. They would never dare to categorize me by age. I can make lightening strike. I am looking for home with older children or above. I startle easily sometimes and your people whelps are little surprise parties. I get to live in a tremendous foster home. You can bow to me on Sundays from noon until 2:00.

Sure, I look a little sluggish. You would too if you rode a twistin' ternader the whole way from Freedom Fences in South Carolina to PAWS in the tundra of Central PA. If it weren't for me- a highly-skilled, bull-riding, lasso twirlin', square dancin' lad full of bravado-we might not have made it here. The rest of those ninnies were all-a cowerin' beneath my 10-gallon hat as I whooped it up and landed us here in search of new futures. Silly old Bessie kept wailing about landing on a witch and having to make friends with a terrier and lion. Too much Netflixin' for her. Anyway, fatigued as I may be, I am tender-hearted towards other dogs, cats, and your fillies and foals (children). As with my siblings, and I wish I could also boast my superiority in this vein, I do require some house and crate instruction. It is humbling to be able to navigate a twister and yet not be able to angle my own hiney in the proper longitude and latitude coordinates. But with patience and some wrastling-I'll be planting properly in no time. Well, I am lyin' low with my siblings in a foster bunk. You can corral yourself over to meet me on Sundays from noon until 2:00.
