AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK
This pretty girl has had a rough time finding a quiet home in which she can show what a funny, expressive, sweet pet she can be. After being discarded by her family of six years for behavioral problems, she went to an AC PAW foster home where she lived with a few other cats. She seemed fairly comfortable and didn't show any of the previous problem behavior. Then Applesauce was adopted by a loving cat owner, but it was a multiple cat home, and she didn't adjust well. Now she is back with AC PAW. We are sad to see Applesauce's potential go unrecognized. She is a great little cat who chirps and mutters, purrs, plays, loves people, and does a cute head-down-circling-body drop to show she wants her belly rubbed. In a home with lots of attention and either no other pets, or maybe just one other, we know she would be a delightful addition. Like all AC PAW pets, Applesauce is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. She is a 7 year old orange domestic short hair kitty. You can meet Applesauce at PetSmart. If you think you would like to adopt Applesauce or would like more information about her, please fill out our pre-adoption questionnaire or contact us today.
Every year between 6 to 8 million dogs and cats enter shelters across the United States. Out of that number, 3 to 4 million are euthanized simply because there are not enough homes for them.

AC PAW started as a vision of two people, Brian Manley and June McGrath, to ensure a safe haven for animals from abuse, hunger, disease, and death. AC PAW was founded to give these animals a second chance at life. We all know too well the over-population problem happening at animal shelters, so one of our core missions is to spay/neuter all of our rescued animals prior to adoption. We are officially in our 20th year of volunteer service, with a handful of dedicated volunteers and a small number of donors. AC PAW began on July 1, 1995 and was officially incorporated on Jan 16, 1996. During this time we have rescued and placed over 9,000 dogs and cats into loving homes. We are always looking for animal lovers willing to put some time and effort into volunteering or becoming a foster home. Any kind of donations such as financial support, pet food, litter, blankets, towels, collars, or any kind of miscellaneous items would also be greatly appreciated.
