Mims is a one-year old male chinchilla. He is a rodent, who is most active at dusk and dawn ("crepuscular"). In the wild, chinchillas are found in the Andes mountains, an arid climate. When you keep them as pets this means it's important that they have plenty of space to move around and do not get overheated. Mims is no exception; he is active, curious and playful. His teeth will grow throughout his life so it's essential that he has ample things to chew on to wear them down. Chinchillas are soft and affectionate but are not generally cuddly, as some other pets can be. However, their antics will keep you entertained. Mighty Mister Mims is ready to put on a show for you. Visit him at HAWS today!

A Discussion on Dilated Cardiomyopathy and Grain-Free Diets


dilatedcardiomyopathy.jpg

Dr. Justin Shmalberg is a veterinarian at Small Animal Hospital at the University of Florida. His mission is an integrative approach to animal care—combining the latest technologies, natural approaches, and fundamental nutrition to prevent and treat disease in pets.

In his blog post, Dilated Cardiomyopathy and Grain-Free Diets: Thoughts on the FDA Update, Dr. Shmalberg discusses the current suggestion that certain types of pet foods may be causing fatal heart disease. He takes a multi-aspect approach to his own personal experiences and opinions as an integrative veterinarian.

In discussing what DCM (dilated cardiomyopathy) is, citing studies, and sharing how he advises his own pet parent clients, Dr. Shmalberg presents a fundamental starting conversation on a topic in which definitive answers are still up in the air. Be sure to read the comments section of his article for more excellent information.

In light of this, remember we will have a LOT of vendors at our big summer event—Customer Appreciation Day! (See details below!) Visit with them, take home some free samples, learn about their companies and maybe try something new while enjoying the big one day savings!

 

Getting closer…just 10 days until…

Gotta water dog?

You will love our new Wigzi Gel Leashes (one and two dogs), Collars and Harnesses. They are waterproof, stink-proof, and reflective! Choose from blue, green, pink and orange.

Check out the dual doggie leash:

If your leash, collar or harness gets dirty or wet simply hand wash with soap and water, wipe it clean and you're set. Each product has a highly reflective strip for maximum visibility. There's an additional d-ring on the leashes for waste bags included near the super-comfy gel handle.

(In fact, these products would be great to try out in our wading pool at the Summer Fun Event!!)

Spangle has spent more of his life then not living in a shelter. Prior to that, when he was very young, we think he lived outside with his mother and siblings. We are looking for a patient, nurturing home to show this guy what home living is like! Spangle is a five month old, Dalmatian mix puppy. He gets along well with other dogs of various sizes, but would prefer a home without cats. This handsome fella is loving and curious, although a bit on the shyer side. Because of his sensitive nature, his new family members would all need to be 13 and older. Are you ready to bring home Spangle, the Star of a Pup? Come to HAWS and meet him!

All about Vermont Dog Eats from their website:

We're Vermont Dog Eats and we make people-grade dog treats with locally-sourced and organic ingredients. Our all-natural dog treats are handmade, baked and bagged right here in Vermont.

It all began one day when we decided that rather than buying dog treats with ingredients we couldn't pronounce, we would buy locally-sourced, healthy & organic foods and make them ourselves. The rest, as they say, is history! We're happy to make a product that makes dogs happier and healthier, and we're happy that owners can give their furry friends food that is just...food.

We have a network of local farms and partners that offer us access to some of the finest food around and as a result our dog treats are made with entirely real, human-grade food and absolutely NO wheat, soy, corn, sugar, byproducts or preservatives. We believe that good dog eats are vital to the health of of our furry friends.

As proud parents of a rescue dog and a few foster pups ourselves, we can’t say enough about the work done by animal rescue groups. That's why every year we donate 2% of our profits to local animal rescue/welfare organizations. In short, we're happy to support the great community that supports Vermont Dog Eats and our furry friends.

Parasites and Indoor vs. Outdoor Cats


catgrass.jpg

Just yesterday Dr. Becker posted a very informative article on cats and parasites. Her bottom line is that your cat is most protected from parasites (and many other dangers) staying indoors, or having limited/supervised outdoor access. The article is based on a study done by Auburn University.

This is especially helpful information for expanding your pet care knowledge, as well as information to consider if you ever plan to add more cats to your family in the future!

Dr. Becker also lists several ways to help your “captive” cat thrive indoors!

Enrichment for Your Kitty


One thing we love about kitties is that they’re independent and (generally) low-maintenance, which is great for those of us who have work days away from home.

But to live their best lives, cats still need an enriching environment—one that includes activities and items that encourage them to do normal “cat stuff” like hunting, playing, and climbing. Cats also thrive on consistent schedules and human interaction to minimize stress.

Dr. Karen Becker of healthypets.mercola.com presents a fabulous article to help us understand our kitty’s needs and easy ways to fulfill them!

—-> Click here for the full article, Leaving Kitty Home Alone? How to Keep Cats Entertained

One thing Dr. Becker mentions is getting your kitties outdoors when the weather is nice—it’s good to get their feet on the bare Earth! But how does one do that unless your kitty is leash trained?? Here is one of our reader’s solutions to letting her indoor cats outside, keeping them safe from predators (eagles, hawks, and coyote!)—a CATIO (cat patio). They can be as small as a window or large enough for people! This one was purchased as a kit, and the shelves were replaced with long-lasting cedar. Logs for scratching and stepping stones (great for a warm catnap!) were also added. During warm months, catnip and other greens are added in pots. One resource she recommends is Catio Spaces if you’d like more ideas! Also, if you live near Austin, Texas (or even if you don’t), you might love David Murphy (aka the Cat Carpenter) and his catio creations!

Tiger is a HAWS staff, volunteer and visitor favorite. That means he has been waiting to be adopted far too long. This almost nine year-old, domestic shorthair, tabby cat came to us just shy of a year ago (June 4, 2018). So, Tiger's legion of fans is trying to get him adopted before he spends a full year looking for a new home. He came to HAWS when his previous owner needed to be hospitalized and he was a bit crabby. We realized Tiger has back pain and once it was addressed his outlook improved. He still wants things his way, but he's less of a curmudgeon about it these days. He even learned how to give "high fives"! Recently (due to construction in his private pad) Tiger moved into our small cat colony room. He has been doing well and now can go to a home with other felines who will give him his space. Please come and meet him and see if you can make OUR boy Tiger YOUR boy Tiger!

You might remember Jeremy as our spokes-mouse from a post this past January. Since then he has been patiently waiting for his new home.  

He is an adorable domestic mouse who would make an entertaining companion. He will impress you with his curiosity and fearlessness. HAWS volunteer, Russ created a jungle gym to keep him busy in his cage, and when "comes out to play" he explores a doll house. Male mice need to be kept individually so they do not fight. Jeremy is waiting to meet you!

Canna Care by Pet Releaf--50% off


CannaCare.jpg

Check out the newest CBD product by Pet Releaf—Canna Care! Buy it 50% off at End of the Leash through the month of May, 2019.

From Pet Releaf’s website:

We developed Canna Care Topical for Dogs because we believe in healing from the inside out.

Pet Releaf Canna Care Topical for Dogs is infused with our Certified USDA Organic CBD Hemp Oil. Our CBD Hemp Oil droppers and capsules, as well as our Edibites, have your customer’s companions covered on the inside, this product was developed to help take care of the outside.

What’s in Canna Care

Canna Care is 100% vegan and made with all plant-based ingredients. As with any Pet Releaf products, you can pronounce every ingredient with Canna Care and each ingredient was hand selected to amplify the health benefits of CBD and to heal and moisturize your dogs skin.

Some of the most important ingredients in Canna Care:

Andiroba Oil:

Andiroba oil is an anti-inflammatory oil. Due to it’s high omega-3 count it promotes skin healing and can slow the growth of skin cells. It’s also been found to help with pain (including arthritis) and swelling.

Eucalyptus Oil:

Eucalyptus oil is used in many products for a variety of reasons. In our Canna Care, we incorporate Ecucalyptus oil to help as a natural pain reliever. It also contains antimicrobial and antiseptic properties that make it extremely effective in treating skin cuts and wounds.

Ucuuba Butter:

Like, Andiroba oil, Ucuuba butter is extremely high in fatty acids. These fatty acids make it an exceptional moisturizer and efficient in replenishing skin.

Pet Releaf Canna Care Aids In:

  • Dry Skin

  • Inflammation

  • Arthritis Relief

  • Insect Bites

  • Skin Irritations

We have also heard cases where Canna Care has helped with Mange, MSRA, and chronic rashes.

What makes Canna Care different from other CBD topicals?

Our CBD Hemp Oils are extracted from our own proprietary strain of hemp grown specifically for pets, PR-33. This strain is grown at the largest certified USDA organic hemp farm in the United States. Our joint-partnership with our farmers allows us to have complete control over our hemp plants, from seed to sale, from plant to pet we know exactly what’s going into the products you’re giving your pets.

We extract our CBD Hemp Oil using a chemical-free super critical CO2 method. This method ensures no critical cannabinoids are destroyed and you’re getting every benefit the hemp plant has to offer.

Beyond our hemp and extraction methods, every ingredient included in our Canna Care topical was hand-selected specifically with your pet’s health in mind. It is 100% vegan and plant-based with the highest possible quality ingredients sustainably-sourced.

Frequently Asked Questions About Canna Care:

Is it okay if my dog licks the Canna Care after it’s been applied?

Answer: Yes! Canna Care is a 100% plant-based and vegan product. There are no ingredients included that could harm a dog’s health if licked in small quantities.

I noticed this product is marketed just for dogs, is it okay if I put it on my cat?

Answer: No. Our Canna Care Topical contains a wintergreen oil that is potentially toxic for cats. Although included in very very small amounts, we do not recommend putting this product on cats.

Can the Canna Care be used instead of a Hemp Oil product?

Answer: Our Canna Care topical is great for skin-specific inflammation, however, it is much lower in potency than our oil tincture products. If your dog has severe inflammation that is also showing externally on the skin, we recommend utilizing the Canna Care in conjunction with the oil so that the inflammation is being dealt with both internally and externally.

Can I use Canna Care?

Answer: Yes! All Pet Releaf products are beyond human grade and every ingredient within our Canna Care topical is equally beneficial for human skin care!

This week's Pet of the Week is Groucho the cat. He is the sweetest guy and his little under-bite makes him even more endearing. He is so easy going that he'd be the kind of pet to just ease right in to anyone's life.  

Groucho's name must be ironic or a nod to the Marx brother because this cat is as sweet as they come. He is a 10 year old domestic shorthair who wants to love and be loved. His joys in life include wet cat food and attention from anyone willing. Groucho is a mellow fellow who currently lives in our small cat colony room. So, he would most likely do well in a home with other pets. This super friendly feline came to HAWS with his brother, Hi Ho Silver and sister, Cuddles. He and his brother are still waiting for homes and can go together (but are not required to be adopted as a pair). Is there room in your heart and home for some extra affection? Stop in to HAWS and let Groucho fill that space.

New from Small Batch—Lightly Cooked

Transitioning to raw? Want to add extra nutrition to your current kibble or canned? Or just not ready to go all raw yet? You and your pet will love Small Batch Lightly Cooked!

Small Batch took their raw formula and made them irresistible by cooking them sous vide (in their own juices) at 150 degrees for 5 minutes. This makes it easier to digest, wonderfully aromatic, and extremely palatable for those finicky eaters!

Lightly Cooked is also a GREAT choice to replace canned food as it contains NO thickeners, gums, carageenan or BPA.

Choose from beef, chicken, or turkey.

HAWS' small animal room is brimming with little critters looking for homes. Rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, birds, mice and rats are all waiting for their adopters to come. 

Gilbert is an adorable tan and white domestic rat. He is an adult, but smaller as rats go. He was surrendered to HAWS by a good Samaritan who rescued him when his original owner threatened to "set him free" outside. He is curious, gentle and likes to be handled. Rats are very intelligent and perceptive animals, and this sweetie is no exception. Would you like to see Gilbert the Great for yourself? He will be taking visitors during viewing hours. Please take the opportunity to meet (and possibly adopt) him.

Cayenne is a spicy little fellow who came to HAWS from Louisiana. He is a one-year-old terrier with a joyful disposition. He has a great energy and just cracks us up! He has unique fur, with almost a lion's mane, if a lion's mane started at the shoulders. :) This little guy has already had an eventful life and is ready for more adventures. In true terrier form, he is energetic and smart. In fact, he knows how to climb fences! So, Cayenne would do best with people who are active and committed to teaching him new skills.

Looking for CBD? Plus: Important Flea & Tick Information


If you’re considering CBD for your pet, we carry products by Super Snouts and Pet Releaf.  Stop in to discuss the many benefits of using CBD on your beloved furry friends.

Here are a few info-packed articles from Healthy Pets on the uses of CBD for pain and epilepsy for your pets, as well as an invaluable video/transcript by Dr. Karen Becker interviewing Dr. Celeste Yarnall on using CBD oil for your cats!

—-> The Effective Pain Treatment Your Vet May Not Want to Talk About
—-> If You Haven't Heard About CBD-Rich Hemp Oil for Cats, It's Time You Did

PetReleafhempoil700.jpg

Here’s more info on Pet Releaf’s Hemp Oil 700:

About Pet Releaf

At Pet Releaf, we control our entire manufacturing process, from seed to sale, from plant to pet. 100% of Pet Releaf’s hemp is grown at our joint-venture hemp farm located in eastern Colorado. It is the largest Certified USDA Organic hemp farm in the United States and we’re the only pet company they work with! We plant and harvest a specialized proprietary strain of hemp, PR-33, grown specifically with pets in mind. Since we extract a Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, Pet Releaf Hemp Oil 700 provides your pet with the multitude of health benefits associated with CBD while also providing the additional medicinal benefits associated with the over 100 other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found within PR-33.

The Pet Releaf Difference

Pet Releaf only uses certified organic CBD from the whole hemp plant – not the marijuana plant. By having our own proprietary hemp strain just for pets, using CO2 extraction methods and consistently testing through 3rd party laboratories for potency and efficacy, Pet Releaf has become the #1 trusted CBD brand in the pet world.

 

Ready for flea and tick season?

At EOTL, we strongly encourage the use of natural flea and tick prevention, and this article by Dr. Becker goes into detail on how flea/tick products containing isoxazoline, have the potential to cause neurologic symptoms in dogs and cats, including muscle tremors, loss of muscle control and seizures. Other ingredients such as metaflumizone, amitraz, fipronil and tetrachlorvinphos also are very toxic insecticides, and the article talks about the history of usage of these chemicals.

Dr. Becker’s article —-> Warning, Using This on Your Pet Could Cause Seizures and Tremors

One brand of flea and tick product on our shelves we love is Alzoo, made in France. We carry Spot-On for both dogs and cats, and Natural Repellent Collars for dogs. We love that not only are they safe for pets, but people, too!

Did you know that for some flea and tick products, your pet has to be bitten first?  After feasting on your pet's chemical-treated blood, pests die.  In contrast to conventional pet collars and spot-ons, ALZOO repels pests.  Laboratory tests show how the Active Ingredient repellents both reduce the incidence and severity of bites. 

On their FAQ, Alzoo talks about why they create natural flea and tick products:

Main reason : Flea collars containing organophosphates are dangerous for both humans health, especially children health, as well as pets health. That is why, the French National Agency of Veterinary Medicine decided to withdraw the permit for sale of Diazinon, Propoxur and TCVP based collars, that are still widely commercialized in America. More recently, US EPA decided to ban Propoxur-based collars.

Indeed, while adults or children are petting your animal, insecticides are absorbed through the skin and may harm the nervous sytem. It is the same for pets.

Thus, we have developed natural repellent products to take care of people and animals' health.

Mittens is a light orange Tabby cat who is two years old. He is a reserved fellow who has been at HAWS since January. He is a friendly cat but is not (typically) the sort to seek you out. This gentle cat prefers to climb up to a place where he can nap and survey his kingdom. He thoroughly enjoys chin scratches and being brushed. Mittens lives in our large colony room; so he does well with other cats. Do you have room in your heart for a calm, sweet feline? If you thought "Yes", come visit and fall in love with Marvelous Mister Mittens.

Those Paws Are Made for Walkin'!


Spring is slowly springing here in Wisconsin! Do you have walking plans with your pup?

We both have legs and feet…walking is our natural mode of transportation. There are nearly endless benefits of walking WITH your dog. Not only does it get us where we want to go, but for both dog and human it improves mood, reduces stress, and supports myriad healthy body functions. And best of all, you get to spend time with your favorite furry friend!

If your goal (for you OR your dog) is better fitness, a walk with him can be turned into a well-rounded workout. Myfitnesspal has some tips on how to prepare for a more vigorous walk (or run!) and how to keep it at a healthy pace. —-> How to Turn Walking Your Dog Into a Workout

Lastly, remember your dog’s limits after a less-active winter indoors. Whether she’s young or older, soft tissue injuries and even neck/disc injuries are common when dogs first hit the grass after the long snowy months. Dr. Karen Becker has an important article revolving around the transition from winter activity to spring activity, and also tips on how to keep your dog toned all year round. Check it out! —-> A Major Recipe for Injury - Vets See No Shortage Every Year at This Time

Bananas--Benefits for Your Dog


Let’s face it, we’ve all been guilty of feeding our dogs things they shouldn’t have. But there are actually some “people foods” are on the thumbs up list—and one of those is bananas!

banana.jpg

As always, Dr. Becker delivers excellent information on this subject. Here’s a sneak-peek at her article, Can Dogs Eat Bananas?

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Bananas are one of the many fruits that your dog can enjoy, as they may provide many health benefits

  • Bananas are a great source of dietary fiber, which may help promote your pet’s digestion and alleviate gastrointestinal problems

  • A good rule of thumb is to feed your dog one slice of banana at a time

  • While the inner part of bananas is safe and healthy for dogs, their peels are a different story

Wondering if your cat can safely eat bananas? Dr. Becker says:
”While bananas do not cause any toxic effects on cats, most cats won’t be interested in eating any fruit, as they are carnivores. If your cat expresses an interest in eating bananas, you can offer a small slice to them as a treat.”

Easter and your pets

Like with all holidays, while we want our pets to be a part of our celebrations, there are also many cautions that should be heeded to keep our pets safe and happy.

There are three main items to be wary of during Easter time—Easter lilies (for cats), Easter basket grass, and chocolate (for dogs).

The Pet Poison Helpline website has a brief article talking about the effects of these items. Check it out to help make the holiday safer for your beloved pet!

Travis is terrific! He is a mild mannered, eight year-old, domestic short-hair cat. If you have time in your day for a bit of mutual admiration he would be happy to oblige. He enjoys being brushed and petted but does not require constant affection. Like many of us this time of year, Travis could stand to lose a little weight. So, his new family will need to commit to getting him slimmed down. He lives peacefully with other cats in our colony room and might tolerate a dog. If this sweet gent sounds right for you stop and visit him to see if you click!

The Basics About FLUTD


relaxedcat.jpg

FLUTD (Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease) is very common in cats. There are several causes, almost all of which can be alleviated by a change in diet and activity level, more water, and keeping your kitty’s environment as low-stress as possible.

Dr. Karen Becker wrote a short and very helpful article on FLUTD. She talks about the types of FLUTDs, what symptoms to look for, risk factors, what may be the cause, and how best to treat your cat if she is diagnosed.

The most important thing to remember is DON’T WAIT to get your cat to the vet if you notice symptoms. Get her an appointment right away for the most effective treatment.

The germiest spots in the house when you have pets

According to a recent study done on 22 homes with dogs and cats, pet food bowls and pet toys come in #4 and #7 on the top 10 germiest places in homes with pets.

While a healthy cat or dog’s digestive system is designed to handle larger loads of bacteria, a human’s is not. And the elderly, small children, and the immunocompromised individual especially can become extremely ill from some bacteria.

In her article, The Two Germiest Pet Items in Your Home, Dr. Karen Becker shares suggestions on how to keep these items and areas cleaner and safer. This is great information for all pet owners!

New Foods by Stella & Chewy's and Essence


Essencelogo.jpg

We are excited to announce a new pet food line on our shelves, from the makers of Zignature and Fussie Cat—Essence: The Embodiment of Superior Pet Nutrition.

At End of the Leash, we carry both the Essence canned and dry for dogs and cats.

Here’s what Essence has to say about their premium pet food:

Essence.jpg

Protein: Building Blocks
Protein is important to carnivores. It’s what builds strong muscles and fuels their energy. We are committed to a meat first philosophy for the best possible health for your dogs and cats.

Closer to Nature
It is our personal vision for premium pet food. Made with the highest quality ingredients and loaded with animal proteins, Essence® brings your canine and feline companions closer to nature. Animal proteins provide the building blocks of powerful muscles, strong bones, and healthy functions. Formulated from the very Essence® of nature, this is the next generation of pet food.

Sustainable Sources
Creature
The highest quality proteins from responsible and clean sources. That is the Essence promise. Our proteins are sourced from all over the world, bringing together ingredients that are specific from certain regions and using them to craft our unique recipes. Each recipe showcases the best of poultry, fish, and red meat. We choose the proteins that provide the healthiest nutrients and great taste for all your furry companions.

We use ingredients like Guinea Fowl, Turkey, Herring, Salmon, Boar, Lamb, and many more.

Health and Functions
Dog & cat ancestors were wild

Dogs descended from a now-extinct prehistoric wolf. The modern gray wolf is the closest living cousin of the modern dog, having branched off from that common ancestor only 40,000 years ago. In fact the modern dog and the modern wolf share 99.96% of DNA. Our dogs are basically just super-social, people-friendly wolves. That also means dogs share nutritional needs with their wolf cousins as well.

Cats are of the family Felidae. This family includes all the big cats we are familiar with, such as lions, cougars, and tigers. Within that family is a group of smaller cats called Felis. It is from this group where the modern domesticated cat comes from. Cats still have the natural hunt instinct and dietary needs of wild cat species. Those wild cats were hunters and carnivores, and modern cats are no different.

So dogs and cats are essentially wild. In recognition of this, we created Essence to bridge the past with the present, and to provide for our cats and dogs a nutrition that’s closer to nature, the way nutrition was meant to be.

Benefits of Meat
Dogs and cats are a part of the order Carnivora. Thus, they are
biologically adapted to catch prey and eat meat. These animals do not farm or graze. The plant food that they do consume come from the stomach contents of the prey they catch, often which are herbivores. Essence recreates that diet. Our approach is always animal protein first. The way it was meant to be in nature.

Free of
Canines and felines are designed to eat meat. We leave out grains and potatoes and any other ingredient that does not serve a natural, clean diet philosophy.

Philosophy of elimination
Elimination diets are a way to assist your pets avoid potential food sensitivities. Foods that combine such ingredients, e.g. starches, oils, and vegetables, can have an effect on dogs and cats, such as irritable stomach and other conditions. Essence cuts out ingredients that might cause food sensitivities so that instances of an undesired effect is minimized.

All recipes are free of:

Healthy ingredients we include:

Red lentils
Coconut flour
Pumpkin
Chia seed oil

Grain
Potato
Alfalfa
Flax

Peas
Sunflower oil
Eggs

 

Wholesome, human-grade wet food for cats by Stella & Chewy’s

Also new on our shelves…FOR CATS…are Marvelous Morsels and Purrfect Pate by Stella & Chewy’s!

Stellas_tetrapaks_cats.png

If you are looking for a limited-ingredient, single-source protein food for your kitty, this is a superb option. Packed in Tetra Paks, they are BPA-free, recyclable in many areas and biodegradable. Real meat chunks, nutritious bone broth, and organic vegetables are what you’ll find in this food. What you won’t find—carrageenan, grains, gluten, or potatoes, and no ingredients from China.

These new foods are also a great way to get more hydration into your kitty—they are 78-82% moisture (bone broth, not water). You can use Marvelous Morsels and Purrfect Pate as a complete meal for your adult or senior cat, or as nourishing toppers (not recommended for kittens).

Spike is a five year-old Red Ear Slider. He is an aquatic turtle who enjoys most of his time swimming and floating about. Because he is a reptile, he does hop out of the drink from time to time to soak up the "rays" and "sun" himself. When the weather is warm enough he would even enjoy going outside for supervised shenanigans. The average life span for a turtle like Spike is 20-30 years; so he is a long-term companion. However, Spike is most likely a loner and will not need to have turtle friends to be fulfilled. Stop in to HAWS and learn more about him!

Animal Friends and Your Health


dogandcat.jpg

There are countless beneficial reasons to have animals as part of your family, as those with cats and dogs will heartily share! Not only can they be an endless source of entertainment, but they can also help encourage us to be active, keep us company, and remind us to play when our lives are busy and stressful.

We found two articles by Dr. Karen Becker discussing the benefits of having animals in our lives. They go well beyond the obvious reasons—here’s to having healthy, happy, long lives with our best furry friends by our side!

The HAWS Pet of the Week this week is Lavender, a small but stunning dilute tortoiseshell cat! She is seven years old and upon first meeting seems a bit on the shy side. However, once she has thoroughly evaluated you she leans in...for pets and snuggles, that is. Lavender thrives on tranquility, so a peaceful home without young kids is what she needs. She enjoys (or at least tolerates) the company of other cats but would most likely be overwhelmed by a dog. This beauty has been at HAWS for over a year because she is looking for an adopter who is perfect for her. Are you her person? Come to HAWS and check her out.
