Did you know....

... that PAWS (the shelter at which we volunteer) in Norwalk, CT houses not just lots of kitties available for adoption, but doggies, too? Our friend Cindy (who is also a volunteer) has a blog about the many wonderful woofies available for adoption at the shelter. Please check out her site ("Scratch My Belly") here.

Bark in the Park
PAWS has a number of unique fundraising events throughout the year, and on September 19th will hold its 3rd annual "Bark in the Park" fundraiser, at beautiful Cranbury Park in Norwalk, CT. You can check out details about the event here.

PAWS Photo Contest (for doggies) - Winner to be announced at Bark in the Park
Have an adorable picture of one of your pooches? Think it's worthy of an award? Then submit your photo in the PAWS Photo Contest! Submit a photo for a chance to win at a cool prize AND have your dog appear as the PAWS Facebook Fan Page Photo for 2 weeks! The winner will be announced at the Bark in the Park event. Click Here for full contest details & entry form! Deadline for entries is Sept. 10, 2010.

[Oh, and just in case you're wondering ... the handsome little woofie in the picture above is former PAWS resident Taco. :) ]

  1. Well, we guessed that there were probably doggies there too - but we are excited to go meet Cindy and check out her blog! And it sounds like the Bark in the Park will be a fun fundraiser - we send you lots of good luck and hope it raises a lot!

    Oh, and lest we forget to mention it - Taco is a cutie!

  2. Now I admit, I am much more of a cat person than a dog person, but Taco is cute!

    Paws crossed that Bark in the Park is a huge success for PAWS. (I will personally go around to every foster home Alley Cats and Angels has and cross the paws of each kitty - it just might take a while!!)

  6. We are partial to cats ourselves, for obvious reasons, but we also recognize that d*gs can be in need of help and rescue. We're glad there are good humans out there who help those who need it so much.

    Have a great day.

  14. Taco is a very cute doggy and I think his name suits him, don't you? I wish I lived in CT so I could help all of those animals find a home! I will pass along the information though!

  15. Hmmm. Woofies. Well, fine I guess, just as long as one of them doesn't end up HERE!

  16. I am so excited to find your blog through the Blog Hop! It is so unique and a great perspective on being a shelter volunteer! Congrats!

  17. Taco is very handsome. No surprise he was quickly dashed away by a happy family. He is probably living in luxury right now: tv, snacks, snuggly bed, pets,... oh! and TOYS!

  18. It's so nice to meet you guys! What a sweet little fella Taco is!

  19. As we saw that Taco is a former member of PAWS, he has found his forever home. Hooray for that. It's so great what PAWS does for Woofies and Kitties and that you are a part of it. Mom just said she hasn't been to the Pet Store to look at the puppies and kittens lately. I know if she was to get one, which we can't cause we are over our limit here, she would go to the shelter to get one there. She couldn't afford the price for the woofies at the pet store anyhow.
