AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK!
You will fall in love with Cujo the moment you meet him! He is such a great cat. He came to AC PAW when his owner passed away. He was quite a large boy, weighing in at 31 lbs. He has been on a very monitored and slow diet and is down to under 19 lbs. His heavy weight had caused muscle problems in his hind legs, but he has been getting lots of exercise in his foster home and is doing really well. His foster mom feels the best weight for him would be around 16 lbs. Cujo is still a large cat in size though. Because he still needs to lose a few more pounds, he will need to be with someone who will continue to keep him on a safe, monitored diet until he reaches his ideal weight. Cujo is a real character with a very fun personality. He is very gentle and laid back. He loves to be held and lay on your lap. Cujo is three years old and is front-declawed. He is a long haired black cat. When he first came to AC PAW, he was so badly matted and he needed to be shaved. His beautiful shiny coat is growing back. He should be fine with other cats as long as they are not aggressive towards him. We are not sure how he would be with dogs or small children as he has not been around them. You can meet Cujo on Saturday at PetSmart during on adoption hours or if you would like more information on him, 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 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.
