Oreo is very lively and playful, yet dainty, light-footed and graceful. He’s an outgoing guy that is highly active. This pup is going to appreciate an environment that supports his desire to explore the world. Oreo is quick on his feet, sometimes like a blur. He does very well on a leash but he has lightning fast reflexes. He can zip through a cracked door in the blink of an eye.

Oreo has a very well rounded temperament with good social skills. He’s confident without being bossy. He’s highly obedient, polite and proper. He’s energetic yet enjoys calm and relaxing cuddle time. He’s quiet and doesn’t bark much but he will let you know if he needs something. He’s a fast learner that is very bright and trainable. In fact, he wants to learn new skills from you! He interacts great with other dogs and people. We’re not sure how he is with kids or cats. His quick reflexes might have a tendency to scare young children, though he’s shown no sign that he would be overwhelmed being around them. Oreo’s beautiful coat will require regular combing to keep it from being matted. Oreo loves his pamper time when he’s being groomed.

Oreo has a condition known as dry eye, or, decreased tear production. This condition causes eye discharge and left untreated can cause the tissues in his eyes to dry out. Oreo makes caring for this condition a breeze. He sits still for his eye drops and appreciates his eyes being cleaned with a damp, warm hand towel. He will likely need daily care for the remainder of his life.

Oreo can’t wait to become part of your family and provide you with years’ of smiles and love.If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at

About Community Animal Welfare Society

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 1992 the Community Animal Welfare Society ( CAWS) is one of the oldest no-kill animal rescues in Utah. Over the last 20 years CAWS, our fosters and supporters have saved thousands of lives including over 600 last this year. As the largest foster home network in the state of Utah we focus on high risk pets in need of additional care and rehabilitation

Come Meet Our Pets...

CAWS does not have a conventional shelter facility - all CAWS animals waiting for adoption are in foster homes. The number of animals we can help find new homes for is closely linked to how many CAWS foster homes are available. For additional information regarding how you, too, can become a foster, please see our fostering page located on our web site!

CAWS volunteers bring cats and dogs to the PetSmart near 2100 South and 300 West in South Salt Lake on the third and fourth weekends of each month

We are also at the Sugarhouse PETCO (1165 Wilmington Ave) the first Saturday of each month.

Our Adoption Process...

Since we make a lifetime commitment to any animal that comes into our program, we only adopt out animals to people in our area..

If you are interested in adopting a CAWS cat or dog, please fill out the online application at, email or call 328-4731. For the most timely response applying online is recommended.
