***COURTESY POST***** Bobo, an 8 year old, 60 lb., Amstaff is living with his current mom, who says the following about him: Bobo had a very rough first few years of life. I adopted him from a kill shelter where he had been brought after being found chewed up by other dogs in a ditch. He had heartworm and terrible anxiety. Over the last four years that I've had him, he's turned into a whole new dog. He is a low energy dog that enjoys resting around the house and laying with you while you watch tv. His favorite things are being loved and food. He always brings a "present" to greet you when you open the front door whether it's a toy or a pair of underwear. He is quirky and loving and absolutely loves car rides. He holds the leash in his mouth when he's excited to go out for a walk. Bobo enjoys playing tug of war with his stuffed animal lamp chop toys. He gets along great with people and has been exposed to kids from age 5 and up. He enjoys short walks or hikes in areas without other dogs around. He can't walk more than a mile or two at most. He does lunge at dogs when on leash and doesn't get along with other dogs. He knows commands like sit but will usually only comply if a treat is involved. He is housebroken. He is afraid of storms and hides in the bathroom during them. The ideal owner would have a fenced-in backyard with no other dogs or cats. He would do well with someone dog-savvy with patience. It breaks my heart to have to depart with Bobo because I love him more than anything. I just don't have the ability to properly care for him anymore in the way that he deserves. If you are interested in adopting Bobo, please contact his person, Megan, via email or phone: Mejohns166@gmail.com 301-922-4703 show less

Josey is a 5-month-old tabby shorthair, with bright yellow eyes and a grey-striped coat splashed with white - a neat front ruffle, a blaze across her nose, white socks in front - and crazy long white "boots" in back! Josey is adventurous and loves to play with toys and puzzles or go a few rounds with her siblings Sparky and Jonie. She has a mellow personality and enjoys being around people. She rubs your ankles, loves a good scratch, and may curl up next to you for a nap or a night's sleep. She's not anxious and gets along great with other cats (we don't know yet about dogs or children). Josey is spayed, microchipped, up to date on all age appropriate vaccinations (including rabies) and she has tested negative for FIV/FeLV. Josey can't wait to find her perfect forever home and family! The first step in our adoption process is to complete PAW’s Cat Adoption Application. PAW’s Cat Adoption Application can be accessed by following this link: http://www.paw-rescue.org/adopt or by using the ‘Adopt’ shortcut found on this kitten’s profile page on PAW’s website: www.paw-rescue.org If you have questions about Josey, please contact Natalie at catadoptions@paw-rescue.org Please Note: Once an adoption application has been approved and selected to move forward with our adoption process, you will be contacted in order to schedule a virtual ‘Meet and Greet’ with the kitten and their foster. Our virtual meet and greets are most often conducted via Zoom or Facetime. Since adopters are unable to meet our rescue cats in person at this time, PAW is honoring a 2-week trial adoption in order to ensure the kitty match you’ve made is a perfect one!  *As an all volunteer organization we do our very best to review and respond to Adoption Applications as well as general Inquiries in a timely fashion. We genuinely appreciate your patience as it can often take several days to a week to complete this process. Once an application is received, reviewed and approved, a volunteer will be in touch with you as quickly as possible!* show less

‘MILA’ is a precious, female, Tabby kitten who was born in April 2022.  Mila is a healthy, active, affectionate and playful kitten who loves her humans and her brother Milo. They play and snuggle together, and really enjoy a great game of chase! Mila is the leader of the two, and is the first to check out new things or people. She and her brother also really enjoy lap time with their favorite humans. Mila is up to date on all age appropriate treatments and vaccinations, as well as having been spayed and microchipped.   We want to find Mila a home with her brother, Milo. Thanks to the generousity of a PAW donor, both kittens can be adopted for $150 total, the normal price for one kitten.

Say hello to Rocky, our splendid treeing walker coonhound! This 70-pound beauty loves showing off his advanced training. He enjoys walking on a long leash, turning his soulful brown eyes to you, and then running to you with excitement, happy with an encouraging word or treat as a reward! He’s an affectionate companion who loves exploring the outdoors, walking on trails, going for car rides, practicing all commands, and being around other dog friends—especially other hounds! He's been housetrained for years.  Rocky's rough start in life makes him even more lovable to all who know him. We think he didn't like being a hunting dog; he has no interest in chasing animals and doesn't like loud noises. He's emerged from his recent training as a resilient, happy, well-adjusted guy who likes the company of other dogs and loves to show you what he can do.  He has derived so much happiness from the consistency of his recent training, we’d like for his new adoptive family to work with him during free sessions with Rocky's trainer. This will streamline the adoption process for Rocky and his new family. The sessions may be in-person and/or online, whichever works better for Rocky and his new family.  Rocky will thrive with stability, consistency, and lots of affection. Rocky’s ideal forever home is likely in a quieter area (suburb/rural setting), in a calm dog-experienced household. He will reward his family with years of outdoor adventures, companionship, devotion, and love!  PAW usually places animals in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, but we are willing to place Rocky farther away to find the right home for him!  show less

Roxy is a 1 year old, 40 lb., goofy girl! She is incredibly friendly, loves to play with others dogs, and give kisses!! She has a good amount of energy so she would do best in a home with an active family. We think she may be a hound/boxer mix, but who know; we just know she's perfect!  Roxy's foster dad says the following: Roxy is sweet, lovable and affectionate and likes to run and play with other dogs.  Totally housebroken.  Should be a great family pet and likes to kiss her owners frequently! Very easy to have around the house and would be appropriate for a condo/apartment if her owner took her for walks (although she can pull quite a bit and may need training and a gentle leader or similar).     She is extraordinarily food motivated so you will have her attention for training purposes. She is good in the car, no motion sickness, and likes to go on rides and sit outside at restaurants. She sleeps easily through the night.  Very social and haven't seen any aggressive behavior, should be fine in a multi-dog household.  Not sure about cats though.   She doesn’t bark or vocalize much, though that may change based on her surroundings.  Has no real destructive tendencies, although she may steal an occasional sock or hat. PAW places animals in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area only. show less

Salvador is a beautiful snowshoe male with luminous light blue eyes. We don't know much about where Sal came from - he was found as a stray already neutered, so we assume he was someone's pet at one point. He enjoys petting sessions, lap naps, and meows for his foster mom's attention when he sees her for in the morning or when she comes home from work. He plays by batting toys around the floor and especially loves a catnip toy like the catnip filled banana. Sal also likes to be with his humans, preferring to be in the same room with them whenever possible and sleeps at the foot of his foster mom's bed. When Sal arrived at PAW, it was clear that he had a few medical issues. We discovered that his teeth and gums were in bad shape and likely causing him a lot of pain, and as a result, he required a number of extractions. Don't worry, not only is his mouth no longer hurting him, he's still eating his preferred food - dry kibble - without any issues.  We also realized that he has diminished eyesight in one or both eyes. It's clear that he can see well enough to get around fine, but he's not going to make the incredible leaps onto high surfaces, and he sometimes has a hard time seeing that a surface is unstable. That said, his foster mom always leaves the light on for him at night so that he doesn't have any trouble finding the litterbox. Sal was originally very anxious when he arrived at his foster mom's house, but after a few months, has settled right in. He is a good traveler, going to the weekend house with his foster mom nearly every week without fuss or anxiety, and does well in the new environment when he arrives. Sal does sometimes get annoyed and will let you know he's had enough by swatting with his paws or growling. For this reason, we recommend Sal be in a home without small children. Sal is getting along with the other cats and dog in the home, but he would probably prefer to be an only cat. Salvador is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and is microchipped. His has tested positive for FIV, but is negative for FElv. FIV+ status does not mean that Sal will not live a normal lifespan. Good resources for learning about FIV in cats can be found here: https://vbspca.com/what-you-should-know-when-adopting-an-fiv-positive-cat/  If you would like to meet Salvador via a Facetime or Zoom video call and learn more about him, please complete the application here: www.paw-rescue.org/adopt and we will be in touch. If you have any other questions, please contact Heather at cat-coordinator@paw-rescue.org Due to the COVID pandemic, we are doing meet and greets with our foster cats via Zoom, Facetime or other video conferencing platforms. Since the adopter won't be able to meet them in person, PAW is honoring a 2 week trial adoption to ensure it's a good fit. show less

Sunny is a 2 year old male buff tabby.  His foster family will often refer to him as FOMO because this kitty doesn’t want to be left out!  Sunny is a born follower and trails his foster families’ 4-year-old cat around the house to make sure he doesn’t miss out on anything.  Sunny has a calm energy and is best described as a gentle and sensitive soul. He loves a good wrestle with his foster brother but will also play independently.  He is a true lap cat and is happiest when there is a lap to snuggle into.   Sunny’s warm and loving disposition is remarkable.  He was rescued from a hoarding situation in the spring of 2021 where he was one of two hundred plus cats.  When PAW took over his care, he had multiple infections and still takes some medications for a chronic stuffy nose. His meds are inexpensive and this guy is a champ at taking those pills!  Sunny is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV/FELV. If you would like to meet Sunny via a Facetime or Zoom video call, as well as ask questions about him, please complete the application here: www.paw-rescue.org/adopt and we will be in touch. If you have any other questions, please contact Annaliesa at catmanager@paw-rescue.org Due to the COVID pandemic, we are doing meet and greets with our foster cats via Zoom, Facetime or other video conferencing platforms. Since the adopter won't be able to meet them in person, PAW is honoring a 2 week trial adoption to ensure it's a good fit. show less
