Mindy and her brother Mork arrived hungry and frightened underneath a thrift store porch. At approximately 12 weeks old, they had almost missed their window for being properly socialized. They were timid and un-trusting. Despite multiple environmental adjustments, Mindy failed to make any significant progress and PAWS staff became very worried that she would never be interested in being a pet and thus never adopted.
Then, a Guardian Angel stepped in! A set of experienced foster parents agreed to take these two timid cats in and begin the long and tedious process of "taming" Mork and Mindy. They quickly discovered that the key was in the kibble-- Mork is highly food motivated! After a mere 3 weeks of foster placement, Mindy had made tremendous progress.
Now all he needs is a patient home of his own!
Now, these cats desperately need a forever home. There is a chance of regression if he or Mindy has to re-enter a shelter environment.
Our adoption process:
It is our goal to match each animal with the most compatible home, based on their personality and temperament. In order to do this we ask that all potential adopters fill out an adoption interview, as well as talk with a staff member about what they are looking for in a new pet. By doing this we can better match adoptee with an adopter, resulting in forever homes!
