Marshmallow Graduates!

Marshmallow has graduated from the Itty Bitty Kitty Program and is now enrolled in the Teeny Weany Program!

Although he still likes an occasional bottle of formula, he is now eating canned kitten food gruel and is loving it. He will be introduced to dry kitten chow today an we are hopeful that this will stop his urge to eat kitty litter :-0

Marshmallow is a Siamese blend kitten that was found all by himself with no momma cat or siblings in sight. He was just days old when he was brought to the Coronado Animal Care Facility.

Immediately enrolled in the Itty Bitty Kitty Program, he thrived in the hands of his foster mom – as you can see from this video of him playing.

Marshmallow will be available for adoption in the next month or so.

If you are interested in adopting Marshmallow, you must first complete a Cat Adoption Application and meet with a PAWS of Coronado Cat Adoption Counselor. Cat adoption applications are available at the facility or Cat Adoption Applications may be completed online.

If you have any questions, please contact the Cat Adoption Team online or call Bob at 619-840-9727.

You can see all of the cats and kittens currently available for adoption on our Cats for Adoption page.

Weekly Walks: Greta

greta a cocker spaniel for adoption from paws of coronado
With her long eyelashes and honey colored fur, Greta should be a doggie model. Instead, this Cocker Spaniel beauty was found as a stray and is currently looking for a forever home.
Once Greta feels comfortable with you, she’s all affection. After a few minutes of rubbing her back and talking to her in soothing tones, she trusted me enough to give her a belly run. Once I started petting her stomach, she became so happy that I think she forgot she was in a shelter. If I stopped petting her she would cock her head and look at me as if to say, ‘why did you stop petting me?’
Greta is also popular among the dog walkers and everyone who has walked her has commended on what a pleasure it was!
With her gentle disposition and gorgeous looks, it’s a mystery to how Greta ended up on the streets of Coronado. However, her desire to be petted and gentleness tells of a loving home.
Now it’s your turn to give Greta her forever home. She’s an absolute sweetie and would be fantastic with most families and homes. Since she is a little timid at first, a calm environment would be best suited for this beauty.
 If you are interested in an adoption  you must first complete a dog adoption application and meet with a PAWS of Coronado Dog Adoption Counselor. You may fill out the online dog adoption application at pawsofcoronado.org or contact dogadoptions@pawsofcoronado.org

Louie the Canine Lifeguard


This in from PAWS of Coronado photographer, Kim Johnson:

On a recent evening walk along Dog Beach, I spotted Louie having a great time mingling with his canine friends.

I didn’t get the chance to say hello because his foster mom was packing everybody up right after I spotted them. But I did manage to snap these photographs.

Louie certainly is a cutie! You gotta love that smile.

He could be the next official “Surf Check Dude” and/or Canine Lifeguard. He definitely looks to be keeping an eye on things.

It is great to see Louie having such a good time and to know that he is on watch keeping other dogs safe when he is down at Dog Beach.

If you see him down there, do stop and say hello!

Louie is in a foster home while he waits for an adopter. Are you looking for a canine companion to join you on beach walks? Louie certainly would be the best!

Louise’s Pets

Louise left behind a great big hole in our hearts and two beloved pets that are in need of forever homes.

Petunia a chihuahua dog for adoption is sad

Petunia is a seven year old Chihuahua that was originally found on Adella Avenue. She was brought to the Coronado Animal Care Facility, but no one came for her.

Kennel life was hard on her and she became very uncooperative, so Louise took her home to foster.

Tuni is very devoted to her person…. particularly if that person is a male. She is tan with great big brown eyes and weighs 11 lbs. She has been in the care of some of the neighbors since Louise passed away. She spent some time with a family and their pit bull and did fine. She also spent some time with another neighbor, with adult children and two small dogs. Again she did fine. Right now she is in a home with another dog, five cats and two older boys. She is getting along with everybody.

So…. other dogs, cats, older children will work for Tuni. She likes naps on laps and nights on her person’s bed.

chester a handsome gray and white cat needs a home
Chester is a 15 year old large, handsome gray cat. He is healthy and fit.

Louise rescued him when he was very young when she saw he was declawed. He has always been very timid, but once he is comfortable with you, his personality blossoms.

He is talkative and enjoys being brushed while sitting in your lap.

The best home for him would be a quiet, one person home where he could live out his life with a companion who will just let him find his way. He loves being called “Chessie”.

If you have any questions about “Tuni” or “Chessie”, please get in touch with Karen at 619-437-0220.
