P.A.W.S. Dog Wins Look Alike Contest
Our sweet girl, Gypsy, recently received the honor of winning the Sgt. Stubby Look Alike Contest! Not only did Gypsy get the greatest number of votes, but she won $1,000 for our shelter!
Gypsy is a one and a half year old little pittie who came to us as a stray in October. She may be little at only 29 pounds, but she is certainly large in personality! Gypsy is a super smart girl. Not only does she know basic commands, but she also completed a course to receive her Good Canine Citizenship certificate! Gypsy always has a smile on her face & she brings a smile to all around her. Come & meet this darling today!
As a non-profit organization, we could not keep our shelter open without the help of our generous Partners. Each of these businesses provides valuable services to the Shelter. From organizing an event or taking care of our animals and the shelter grounds, each of these Partners plays a special role in helping us with our mission of caring for and finding ‘furever’ homes for our animals.
