Donations are a vital part of the AC PAW existence. Without your help, AC PAW’s success would not be possible. 94% of every dollar raised is used for direct care (food, kennels, veterinarian care, etc.) for the thousands of dogs and cats we save.

AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK!
November is 'Adopt a Senior Cat Month' and Pixie is one of three senior cats we are featuring this week. Sadly, most people when wanting to adopt a new cat want either a kitten or young adult and our senior cats sit patiently and watch as most people see their age and walk on by. It is so sad because they still have quality years left. Some may have a few special needs, but their needs are so small compared to the love and companionship they have to give to you. Pixie was owner-relinquished at the age of 15 years old. She came to AC PAW very depressed after losing her mate and she came to us with a diagnosis of Colitis. After several months of treating her for Colitis and seeing no improvement, we had further blood work done and found out that Pixie actually had Hyperthyroidism. She is doing wonderful now that she is on the correct medication. The medication is applied topically to her ear twice daily. She also enjoys Blue Buffalo Dry Cat Food for Sensitive Stomachs. Pixie is loving, vocal, enjoys sleeping on your lap and helping you on the computer by demanding to be petted. She would do wonderful in a home with no dogs. She will get along with other cats if they are not aggressive. After all Pixie has been through, her foster parents do not want to bring her to the weekend adoptions as they feel it will be too stressful for her. Please fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire available on our website if you would like to give this sweet girl a new home. The fosters will arrange for you to meet Pixie. She is a beautiful short haired tiger and white kitty. Pixie will be celebrating her 16th birthday in February (hopefully in her loving forever home). If you would like more information on her, please 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 begining our 19th 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 nearly 8,000 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.
