PAWS takes in over 30,000 animals a year. Yesterday alone we received 54 cats - and only had about 12 adoptions. We need to amp up our adoption rates, now! Spread the word! There are hundreds of beautiful, adoptable cats and dogs at PAWS! Here's just a sample of some of the beautiful animals who need homes. Please, cross-post this and spread the word. The animals need you!

Daphne is a 2-4 year old ex-momma whose kittens were all adopted without her. Now she is PAWS adoption center all by herself and is looking for a new home! She is a little shy but extremely sweet, and she does not mind being held for longer periods of time. She was in a foster home with smaller children and did wonderfully with them, and she would be fine in a home with other cats as long as they don't bully her. Don't be put-off by her funny face, give this sweet girl a chance!
