Facts about Aria

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 2035
  • Hair: Short
Aria is as beautiful as her name. She is very sociable and loves to play. Sure, all calicoes are beautiful, but Aria really is something special! Her alert green eyes reveal that she is interested in her world. Most of the time she is contented to simply enjoy being near (but not underfoot) the humans who come to spend time with her. Her very favorite thing is a lofty, soft perch where she can alternate napping and spying. She would love to come home with you and take command of the back of your couch!

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!

About Placing Animals Within Society: P.A.W.S.

About Our Shelter...

We are a small no-kill shelter founded in 1990. We are the only shelter in the county and rely solely on donations and the sales from our thrift store. We are small enough that each dog (15 max) and each cat (16 max) get individual attention. We have created a home-like environment in our shelter to give the animals as close to a real home while they wait to be adopted. HSUS had dubbed us "the little shelter that could" when the state rep came out and saw all that we accomplish as a very small organization. We have adopted out over 2,500 animals and have financially assisted the community in over 9,000 spay/neuter surgeries. We have 2 full-time staff and rely on volunteers to help us with all there is to do. Volunteers are very important to the success of P.A.W.S. and there are many opportunities not only at the shelter, but in our thrift store, fundraising, administrative, festivals and media contact.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Thanks to our small staff and a couple of very dedicated volunteers, we have a wonderful group of socialized and happy dogs and cats at the shelter. We are open to the public Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. just a 2 minute drive from downtown Bryson City. Give us a call for more info at 828-488-0418 and say you found us on Adopt-a-Pet.com!

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee is $65 for a cat or a dog unless we have incurred significant medical expenses. We do not adopt out dogs as guard dogs, or animals that will be "outside only" pets. Our feline residents are required to be adopted as inside-only pets.
