    Adopt Roadrunner: An Outgoing Beagle

    September 23, 2014 at 11:57 am

    Roadrunner was named because the funny crook in his tail makes him resemble a certain cartoon bird, but it might as well have been because of his unflagging energy. This not-quite-two-year-old beagle is very active and very friendly, and he takes to new people right away. That would make him an ideal fit for a […]

    Adopt Pumpkin: A Purring Machine

    September 16, 2014 at 10:29 am

    It seems very fitting that Pumpkin arrives at Independent Animal Rescue just as the first Fall chill arrives in the air. But this orange tabby kitten is about as warm-hearted as they come. He’s absolutely obsessed with human contact – as soon as he sees a lap, he curls up in it and begins to […]

    Adopt Freddie: An Endearing Goofball

    September 9, 2014 at 11:32 am

    Freddie was found walking down Franklin Street, as free as you please. And that’s this goofy four-year-old Shih Tzu mix in a nutshell: happy-go-lucky, without a care in the world, and very social. He takes to new people very quickly, and his endearingly silly personality means that they take to him just as quickly. Clearly, […]

    Adopt Fingerpaint: A Little Survivor

    September 2, 2014 at 11:32 am

    Fingerpaint is only four months old, but she’s already seen it all. This striking white pit bull puppy and her siblings came from a cruelty situation, and she showed up at Paws4Ever deaf and with a broken tail. But this survivor hasn’t let her early disadvantages get in her way: she is as loving and […]

    Adopt Turtle: An Irrepressible Spirit

    August 26, 2014 at 11:36 am

    Turtle‘s had a hard life – she was mistreated and confined by her original owner. But that hasn’t dampened her spirit one bit. No, this dog is about the most loving companion you could hope for. She’s still only four years old, and though she has the adorably floppy ears of a coonhound, her short […]

    Adopt Dr. Mat And Krysten Ritter: Two Tiny Delights

    August 12, 2014 at 2:34 pm

    Alert: Paws4Ever has a room full of kittens! That’s right, you can enter a room with fifteen kittens in it, and play to your heart’s content. But wouldn’t your life be better if that room was in your house? Maybe fifteen kittens is a lot, though – would you consider taking two home instead? Two […]

    Adopt Gidget: A Calico Charmer

    August 5, 2014 at 12:45 pm

    Gidget is a looker. This shorthaired calico cat has such a striking coloration, with clouds of black and orange streaking her white body. Her small size – almost kittenlike, despite being full-grown at a year old – makes her downright dainty. But looks aren’t everything. Gidget also possesses a loving personality, and she craves human […]

    Think you don’t have room for a dog in your home? What if you could have all the personality of a big dog without all the space it takes up? Allow us to introduce Chew. He’s a Chihuahua, and he’s even small for that small breed. So he’s easy to pick up and take with […]

    Adopt Chiclets: The Perfect Pet

    July 22, 2014 at 10:30 am

    We’re not exaggerating: Chiclets may actually be the perfect pet. He’s fully grown at only 25 pounds, he’s a beautiful spotted spaniel-beagle mix, and he rarely (if ever) barks. You couldn’t design a better house dog, either, since he doesn’t need much space. In fact, he might even be an ideal apartment dog – just […]
