AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK
Baby Ruth is a wonderful cat who has been with us for a long time. We have featured her as our Pet of the Week before in hopes that the right person will come along and adopt this sweet cat. Unfortunately going to PetSmart for adoption days is very stressful for Ruth, so our only chance of finding her forever home is to keep featuring her as Pet of the Week. When Ruth’s mom first came to AC PAW over three years ago she was pregnant and gave birth to four kittens. Ruth’s mom and siblings were adopted years ago. Ruth had some health concerns at first, so wasn’t quite ready for adoption. She has done extremely well in her foster home and has been available for adoption for quite some time. For reasons unknown, she is still with us at AC PAW. Ruth is the queen of her castle in her foster home. She is a great cat with an outstanding disposition. She is not much of a lap kitty, but she does like to be carried in your arms like a baby and she loves to snuggle in bed. She loves to be chased and play with her toys, especially her toy mice. Ruth is creative and entertaining and will keep you laughing. Ruth is a three year old gray tabby. Her mother was a Manx, so Ruth was born without a tail. Her ideal forever home would have no other cats as she doesn’t get along well with other kitties. A cat-friendly dog would be ok, but she would need to be introduced slowly. In addition to her dry food, Ruth will also need to have a special moist food. She is a wonderful cat who would be a fantastic friend and companion! If you are interested in adopting Miss Ruth or would like to set up a meet and greet, 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 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.
