SAVE THE DATE – Pet Parade and Chili Cook-off!!!

 

Pet Parade & Chili Cook-off - 4th Annual

Just around the corner is the 4th Annual Coronado Pet Parade and Chili Cook-off. Presented by the Coronado Real Estate Association and the City of Coronado, this fabulous event is chaired by Caroline Haines who makes sure it is a gas for all who attend, human and pets alike.

Sunday, September 27, 2015, 11:30 to 3:00 p.m.,

Promenade Park, 1845 Strand Way.

There will be the ever popular categories of contest entries: Most Handsome and Prettiest Pet; Best Costume; Most Gorgeous Senior and Most Beautiful Rescue Pet.  And, for the first time this year, there will be shout out to ALL of the PAWS rescued dogs and cats in attendance.  We are hoping that dozens and dozens of you will bring our “Forever Homed” babies back so they, and YOU, can receive a huge round of applause.

Mark your calendars, plan your strategy for winning your pet’s category, and set aside the day for great fun.  There will be food, pet oriented vendors, entertainment for the kids and so much more. Sponsorships and tables are available for purchase now, email info@pawsofcoronado.org for more information.

So stay turned…more details to come!

Pets of the Week: Prim and Jaylo

Jaylo and Prim

These two sisters were relinquished to the Coronado Animal Care Facility when their family could no longer care for them.  They are affectionate, polite, quiet, housebroken – just about perfect. Both girls love walking together, going along at a good clip, side by side with their bodies touching. They are three years old and we think they just might be “Chugs” – a Chihuahua/Pug blend.

Prim is tan with expressive black eyes, she weighs 19 lbs.  Jaylo is black and tan with a perpetual smile on her face, she weighs 21 lbs.  These two would fit in just about any home, yet since they are initially shy, a household with older children or just adults would be best.

Did we say quiet?  During down time, these sisters keep each other company lying silently on their bed.  If you are looking for a lap dog, try two. Both of these girls love to cuddle.  So come meet both these sweethearts and see what a great addition they will make to your family!

Although we would prefer to have these sisters adopted together, we will consider individual adoptions if the right situation presents itself.

The Coronado Animal Care Facility is open between 9:00am and 4:00pm (except holidays) and is located at 1395 First Street, at the south end of the Ferry Landing complex.

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

Kittens Galore!

Kitten season has hit the shelter, bringing loads of kittens in need of happy homes! These little guys and girls are each a bundle of fun.

rob a black kitten for adoption from paws of coronadomarlon an orange tabby kitten for adoption from paws of coronado is sweet

Rob and Marlon are darlings of the highest degree. These two kittens love to cuddle, climbing into the laps of volunteers to snuggle and purr. Rob will announce himself with a mew as he jumps down from his perch to say hi, while Marlon can usually be found mid-cuddle with his kitten roommates.

kourtney a kitten for adoption from paws of coronado

bruce a brown tabby kitten for adoption from paws of coronado

Bruce and Kourtney make quite a pair, sibling tabbies with love to spare! Kourtney is very investigative and playful, always looking to check out any new objects brought into her room. Bruce is quieter but no less spunky – he entertains all the kittens by batting toys around the floor and even into the air!

khloe a kitten for adoption from paws of coronado

kris a black kitten for adoptin from paws of coronado

Khloe and Kris are silly sister sweethearts! Khloe has realized she can get a prime and usually uncontested cuddling spot by foregoing a volunteer’s lap and instead getting help to climb up on their shoulder! There she purrs and rubs as happy as can be. Kris is a great all-around kitten, loving to cuddle and play and always helping to keep her siblings and roommates groomed and well behaved!

foxy a tortie kitten for adoption from paws of coronado

raven a black cat for adoption from paws of coronado has lovely eyes

Foxy is the final kitten currently released for adoption, and she’s also the one with the roughest start to life. This poor girl was found alone with a foxtail in her eye and no clue how to live with other cats. Full of energy, she wanted to play but didn’t know how to be gentle enough for the other kittens and was too energetic for the older cats to put up with… except for one! Raven, also pictured above, is only a year old and so has energy to spare, and also has purrrfect feline manners. She was more than willing to take Foxy under her wing and teach her proper kitty etiquette. The two have become inseparable friends and can be often seen cuddling together, grooming each other, or playing. Truly a story of cat compassion!

You can meet the kittens at the Coronado Animal Care Facility any day between 9:00am and 4:00pm (except major holidays). The Coronado Animal Care Facility is located at 1395 First Street at the south end of the Ferry Landing complex.

If you are interested in adopting any of the kittens, 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 Online Cat Adoption Application.

If you have any questions, please Contact Cat Adoptions or call Bob at 619-840-9727.

Pets of the Week: Raven and Foxy!

Raven_Foxy_PAWS

You’ll Rave Over These Little Foxes

New buddies Raven and Foxy were paired together at the PAWS facility because we thought Raven’s sweet and social manner might work well with Foxy’s spunky, rough-and-tumble kitten play style. These two friends hit it off and would make a great 2-cat adoption combo!

· Foxy is a very playful kitten and has a very strong personality! Raven takes her kitten antics in stride and has fun with her.

· Raven is young enough to keep up with Foxy’s playful energy but mature enough to teach Foxy boundaries. Raven would do best in a home with another cat.

· Both Foxy and Raven love people and get very excited when their human friends come to visit them in their room at PAWS.

· Once the playtime is over, there is nothing cuter than catching Raven and Foxy snuggling and sneaking in a catnap together.
Raven’s Stats: Female Cat, 1 year old, DSH, Black, Shots Up To Date, Spayed, Microchipped, Tested for FELV, FIV & Parasites, Adoption Fee = $50.00

Foxy’s Stats: Female Kitten, 14 weeks old, DSH, Tortie, Shots Up To Date, Spayed, Microchipped, Tested for FELV, FIV & Parasites, Adoption Fee = $50.00

Pinky has been adopted!

Pinky

This is an adoption that is very close to my heart.  Tiny Pinky came to the Coronado Animal Care Facility in a cardboard box brought in by a good samaritan who found her at Tidelands Park.  When we opened the box, we found a frightened, emaciated little pink dog.  She was pink because a potentially contagious skin condition caused her to loose a good deal of her tan coat.   She bravely endured nearly a month in quarantine.  I came in several times a day to feed, medicate and bathe her.  In the afternoon we spent time in the far side yard getting much needed exercise and sunshine.  Needless to say she captured my heart.

When she was ready to move forward, Kim Johnson took pictures and wrote a lovely little story about unconditional love that was posted to our website.  A special friend of mine saw the posting, called me and said “tell me about this dog.”  Sarah and Ken adopted Dora from us a couple years ago.  They came in several times to visit with Pinky and asked to foster her over the 4th of July.   Pinky went home and the resident dogs, Joey and Elsie (formerly Dora), welcomed the little pink dog.  Pinky, who was not known as a lap dog, has become one.  The foster turned into an adoption and she is very happy in her new home.  The best news is that I get to see her from time to time.  Thanks to all who took such good care of Pinky ….. now Rosie.

Is Your Beloved Pet Microchipped?

Shiloh

Author: Karen Dwinell

Photographer: Kim Johnson

Dolly and Shiloh came into the Coronado Animal Care Facility (ACF) together on June 28th as strays.  They were found on Second Street.  Dolly is a beautiful Basset Hound and Shiloh is a handsome Shiba Inu mix.  They are happy, playful dogs.  No one came for them.  They were not microchipped (implant a microchip under the skin of a domestic animal as a means of identification).

The Fourth of July holiday delayed their medical appointments so they were not available for adoption until the end of last week.  As soon as their pictures hit our website and Facebook page, the emails and texts came in.  A lady in my building knew these dogs from the dog park in the Coronado Cays.   She was able to get in touch with their family in Imperial Beach.  They were ecstatic.  The family had been searching for their dogs, Sophie and Max, for two weeks but didn’t know there was a shelter in Coronado. 

No one knows how these two dogs found their way to Second Street. When dogs are running loose along the Strand or in the Village, the ACF and Police Department are flooded with calls.  No calls came in regarding these two dogs.

Sophie and Max are now back safe and sound with their family.  We learned that Sophie is in training to be a service dog for their young special needs daughter.

This is a story with a happy ending, but it could have been happier much sooner.  If these dogs had been microchipped, they would have been returned to their family on June 28th rather than July 12th.  Please microchip your beloved dogs and cats.  Sophie and Max returned home microchipped.
