« Three Black-tailed Deer Fawns are Growing Up at PAWS | Main | Walkin' Dogs: Lulu »

The tiny survivors are ready to make their final departure to their forever homes.


JoplinTransfer1 On July 1, PAWS welcomed a Cloud 9 Rescue airplane filled with very special cargo. 50 felines (mostly kittens) had flown more than 2,000 miles from the tornado ravaged city of Joplin, Missouri to Arlington airport in search of new homes. Rescue teams from PAWS, NOAH, and the ASPCA worked to transfer these kittens in to caring foster homes, where they could grow big enough to be sent to their new forever homes. Read more about their journey at blog.paws.org.


The fuzzy survivors will be on the adoption floor beginning Saturday, July 23 at PAWS Cat City in Seattle. Stop by to congratulate them on their journey, and welcome them to the great state of Washington. And who knows, maybe you’ll welcome a few into your home as well.
