AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK!
Beauty is a very sweet girl who will purr constantly. She loves to sit on your lap and lay in the sun. When Beauty came to AC PAW, we had a concern for her eye. She was seen by an eye specialist who feels she had an eye infection when she was a kitten and it was left untreated. He assured us she is in no pain and she may go through her whole life with no problem. However, the eye should be watched for possible future infections. Her eye should also be cleaned with a saline solution once or twice a day to keep it clean. She will need a home with a very special person who understands her needs and is willing to care for her. She is the most wonderful cat who deserves to have a new home where she knows she is loved and will be cared for. Beauty is a very pretty domestic long hair Calico. She is 1 1/2 years old. You can meet Beauty at PetSmart in Traverse City or if you would like more information on her, 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.
