Asia: our inspiration to start our Animal Awareness program
Raffe, (short for Giraffe), was found on the side of the road and was inches away from death. She has been recovering at the Paws center since March, receiving daily baths and treatment for her mange was also happy to get rid of all the parasites that were living inside her. Now that she is fully recovered and a healthy puppy she is looking for her forever home. She loves children and going to play at the beach. Gets along great with other dogs and loves cat too! This little lady has the most lovable personality. She is fully vaccinated and spayed with a 15+ years of dog years to look forward to.
Meet Prince! We have never seen a dog covered in so many ticks and fleas. Hundreds of ticks were embedded deep into his skin and even on his eyelids, sucking all his energy from him. It tooks hours and a few baths to remove each one. Prince was living a life of neglect and was very shy around people and dogs. It took 2 weeks for him to regain the confidence to socialize with the other rescues and to be comfortable around new people. Prince is now healthy, great around other dogs, cats and although can be shy at first, love all people too! He is small (under 7kgs) so would be perfect for an apartment and would love to go everywhere with you!
Scotch is a miracle dog! This beautiful, old man was rescued in February after being abandoned by his family once he became infested with mites, his fur started to fall out, and became itchy with severe mange. Scotch was then replaced by 2 younger puppies and left on the streets. He was also a walking skeleton, being slowly starved, and we are happy we found him just in time. Scotch is extremely traumatized from this experience, is still scared of touch, and shy from all those except his feeder. Scotch will live out his final days in retirement at the PAWS Center!
He might look mean and tough at first, but we assure you that our big Rottweiler, Weilly, is a sweet and affectionate dog. He was rescued in April from a veterinary clinic that did not have the time to rehabilitate him after being abandoned by his family. At first he was unable to move which caused him to lay on one side for days at a time. Weilly was very zombie like and suffered from a few uncomfortable abscesses on his shoulder and neck that caused a bad bacteria infection to attack his body so his muscles were weak and he was hardly eating. After many baths, bowls of water, and 4 daily feeding sessions, he is now sitting up, full of energy and eager to get walking soon. The spark in his eyes is apparent when we walk through the door now as we can plainly see that this young guy has a big heart and a lot of love to give. In July, Weilly was adopted and found a wonderful family.
Seal has been at a lovely foster home for the past few months with Rachel & Vinn. He’s loved having a yard to himself to chase his humans and he loves being chased too. He loves belly rubs, trying to play catch (he’s can’t catch a ball!), collecting shoes and sleeping next to beds. Seal was born with a rare deformity, Swimmer Syndrome and needed months of therapy to learn how to walk. He is now strong and healthy, just a big goof ball! Sillier than most dogs and is frightened by people he doesn’t know and sometimes new environments. Please send us a message if you woud like to meet Seal!
Rice was found at the entrance of the University. Abandoned outside, she was fighting a severe bacteria, parasite, and eye infection. She was very malnourished with painful sores on her body. We weren’t sure if her little body would fight off the life-threatening infections, but this tough little puppy pulled through quickly! She recovered with good food, antibiotics, and fluids to help make her stronger. Rice has been in rehabilitation since August and is now showing off her playful puppy side. She will soon be looking for safe, loving place to live!
Asia is our first rescue dog. She was found at a corrupt shelter that was eventually shutdown for selling the dogs and cats to slaughterhouses. We rescued her just in time. In only 3 months of her life she suffered from mange, malnutrition, a motorbike accident, and neglect. She was found sitting in a hard wire cage, emaciated with loss of muscle, and struggling to stand. Two months of rehabilitation and just $25 was able to give Asia a new start to a happy, healthy life.
Left in the hot hot heat in a garbage bag!
This sweet girl was found most likely abandoned because she is suffering from severe mange. She is well fed and use to be a loved family pet, but it is very common for dogs to be kicked to the streets when this happens. We love her already! She is a bit shy, sad and confused, but she will be having fun soon with her new dog crew. She has already started to receive treatment and will make a full recovery with time. She has been named Gladys! She has already brought so much joy to us and the dog crew. Once she gained our trust, she can’t help but show how grateful she is. Only a few days after her rescue, Gladys is recovering well with treatment for her severe mange.
Remember, you can donate to sponsor or help our rescued animals. Thank you!
Little “dustbin Dobby” had a terrible start to life. Someone realised that Dobby was a ‘broken’ cat and put him in a rubbish bin. He was cold, hungry and unable to move when a kind hearted soul saw him in the bin and brought him to us, he was only 4 weeks old. He could not use his front legs, he would roll over and not be able to get up again, so he needed around the clock care to get kitten formula and to make sure he was comfortable. Dobby is now 6 months old and able to use a littler box, climb up the stairs and just cuddle his heart out. Let us know if you can give Dobby the forever home he deserves
