Melissa is about 1 1/2 years old and weighs around 25 pounds.  She is great with other dogs, but can be a little shy.

Let the fine folks at Paws4ever and Melissa tell you more:

“Hi, I’m Melissa! I’m a silly, spunky, squirmy little girl with lots of energy and love to give. I briefly lived in a home before being rescued, so I know some basic commands like “sit” and “down,” but still need to learn my manners. I love to run around, and I can go really fast, but sometimes I need help learning how to slow down or not run into you. I also love belly rubs, and will randomly just wiggle around on my back like a silly little wiggle worm. I would love to find an active family (without cats) willing to help me learn a few things, and I promise to be a great student and your new best friend.”

Melissa came to Paws4ever from a Burlington shelter.  She’s been there for about a month.

Paws4ever will be hosting PawsFest on Sunday, October 9.  Get your tickets now.

Adopt Stuart: Your Athletic Frisbee Dog

Meet Stuart.

Stuart and Ron Stutts

Stuart and Ron Stutts

Stuart is one of the most popular dogs to ever grace the WCHL studio.  He is a strong, two-year-old dog with plenty of athleticism.  He is fantastic with a frisbee.  In fact, Stuart will be competing in Paws4Ever’s Updog Challenge this weekend.

Stuart is available for available from Paws4Ever.  He gets along well with other dogs, but isn’t a big fan of cats.  He is a great companion for an active person and also likes to curl up on the couch to watch the game.

Let Paws4Ever and Stuart tell you about this wonderful pet:

“Are you looking for a sport prospect or K9 partner who can also be a couch potato? I take great pleasure in every encounter, but I have a huge soft spot for my special friends who share my love of both snuggle-chillaxing and intense play. I’m not a dog for the faint of heart. While I like to snuggle, I also have a high working drive and would require a family who is interested in further training. I would love to let both sides of my personality shine. I can accommodate a wide variety of lap sizes and snuggle styles; I’m an expert at exceptionally gentle full-body hugs and respond well to “off” when you don’t want one; I’m generous with dainty kisses that somehow aren’t slobbery and I am a graduate of Family Dog 2 class.”

Adopt Anastasia and Jasmine: A Couple of Disney Kittens

Meet Anastasia and Jasmine.  They are a couple of sisters who come from a whole litter of Disney-named kittens.

Both kittens are available for adoption through Paws4Ever.

The kittens with Ron.

Anastasia:

“I’m the spunky one out of my litter; I love to wrestle with my sister, Jasmine. I’m pretty outgoing and will climb up your leg to get to your lap. I can be pretty vocal, too, and will try and talk to you! My hobbies include playing with toy mice, running on the cat wheel, and climbing the scratching post. I’m really close to my sisters, Jasmine and Elsa, and don’t really like the other kittens, so I’d prefer a home either with one of my sisters or by myself.”

Jasmine:

“Miss Independent is my anthem – I’m definitely the leader of my litter and I’m the first one to come up and greet you. You could also say I’m momma’s little shadow; I try to copy everything she does and follow her everywhere. I’m pretty vocal, and will cry until I can climb onto your lap or you pick me up, and I love to look out the window of our little room and see the great big world outside – you could say I’m ready for A Whole New World!”

June is a great time to adopt a pair of kittens from Paws4Ever.  They’re running a special this month that allows you to adopt 2 kittens for the price of one.

It’s also a good time to learn about how to volunteer.  Paws4Ever has 70 active volunteers and is always looking for more.
