Facts about Mona

  • Breed: Poodle (Miniature) Mix
  • Color: Gray/Blue/Silver/Salt & Pepper
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Mona is a spunky little lady, 13 years young, weighing ~23 lbs. She was surrendered to rescue after her dad lost his job and his home. Even though we know she misses him very much, she has settled into her foster home’s routine and gets along well with her foster siblings. She has some arthritis but can handle stairs with ease. She always grabs a stuffed toy before going out into the yard and then retrieves it before coming back into the house; she loves to hear them squeak. She and her foster brother love to play keep-away with the toys. Even her big sister Ivory gets in on the action. She likes to find the softest comforter and snuggle down into it; she can be a little protective of her spot if Ivory wants to join her in her little nest. She can be a little shy at first, but she warms up quickly and seems to love most everyone including children. She can’t hear real well, but she is alert and loves to prance around while waiting for a treat; she loves to eat! She likes to ride in the car too. She goes into her crate willingly and is potty trained. She had some benign lesions removed prior to coming to PAWS, and her body coat is beginning to grow back. Mona is spayed and up-to-date with vaccinations. She would be a wonderful companion for anyone who is looking for the companionship of a very sweet dog. If interested in this lovely, sweet little girl, please go to our website and complete a dog adoption application at: and you will find the application within the ADOPTABLE PETS tab.

About Public Animal Welfare Society (PAWS Ohio)

About Our Rescue Group...

The Public Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) was founded in 1976. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization considered to be one of Ohio’s most reputable long-standing cat and dog humane rescue groups.

Our group is dedicated to the rescue of pets in Northeastern Ohio. Our mission is to rescue stray and/or abused cats and dogs and place them in good homes. It is a PAWS policy to adopt animals to responsible homes only in the greater Cleveland area. We provide medical care to rescued animals and foster them in our own homes. We also make sure that they are spayed or neutered so that they do not continue the cycle of births that result in more pets than homes. The advantage of adopting a fostered animal is that we know all about our adoptable pets! They have lived with us and we know their personalities, habits, likes and dislikes. We can help you find the perfect companion for your home and lifestyle! We are a no kill organization (the only time we euthanize is on the advice of a vet in order to end suffering where no hope of recovery exists). Everything we do is out of love for the animals.

PAWS philosophy is that kindness to animals helps build a better world for all of us. Through the generosity of other caring individuals, we can ensure that animals who come into the care of PAWS will never again be alone, hungry, sick, afraid, or in pain.

Our mission is
•To provide for the welfare, medical care, temporary housing, and adoption of dogs and cats in northeast Ohio.
•To Work for the prevention of cruelty to all animals.
•To work to form coalitions and working relationships with other local and national humane organizations.
•To actively create, promote and implement a humane education program.
•To reduce the over population of cats and dogs in northeast Ohio through education.
