Vernon has been adopted! You may not recognize him because he didn’t make it up on the website. He’s living in a family with two teenage girls and a beautiful chocolate lab. At the meet and greet, Vernon and the lab got along very well. Vernon’s new family changed his name to Riko. We have no doubt that they will give him tons of love. Congrats Riko!
PAWS of Coronado volunteers gathered at the corner of Orange Avenue and 6th Street early Saturday morning to set up for the 2015 Coronado Flower Show.
By 10:00 am people walking past on their way to the Friends of the Library Book Sale stopped to say hello, ask about our organization and look at our book of Adorable Adoptables.
It was a lovely day and the volunteers had a great day talking to past adopters and meeting new friends.
Giveaways included cat and dog treats, coloring books, PAWS pencils, stickers, Hershey’s Kisses and Rescue Me magazines. And the new PAWS logo bags were a huge hit at a suggested donation of $2.00 as were the X Bags dog poop bags.
And in the afternoon the crowd was entertained by dogs for adoption Luna, Max, Hunter and Simba. Everyone simply loved these adorable canines!
If you missed seeing us today, stop by tomorrow. We will be there from 10 am to 3 pm again
Aged to Perfection
Our sweet senior cat Lara was found as a stray on the 400 block of C Avenue. It’s hard to understand how this sweet girl ended up on the street, but she is now safe and sound at PAWS and looking for the purrfect forever home.

· Lara loves people and will keep up a good “conversation” with her smoky, low-pitched meow.
· Lara loves pets and is an excellent snuggler, and will keep her friends company while they read, watch TV, or nap.
· As a lady of a certain age, Lara takes medication to ease her arthritis pain, and is eligible for PAWS’s Lifetime Foster Care Program.
