AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK!
Meet Buddy! Buddy was brought to AC PAW by a nice lady who found him wandering stray. He was in very bad shape. Buddy had a really bad flea infestation, so much that he had lost patches of fur and had many sore spots. He was taken by AC PAW to an area vet who cleared up the fleas and got him started on healing his skin. It was also discovered that he had a badly abscessed tooth which has since been removed. At that time Buddy was also given a complete dental cleaning. Buddy is about 8 years old. He weighs about 8 pounds and is a short haired brown tabby with white patches. He is very lovable, but somewhat shy with other cats. Buddy would LOVE to be the only cat in your loving home. We guarantee you'll fall in love with this sweetie - just look at his HUGE eyes! You can meet Buddy at PetSmart during our weekend 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 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 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.
