“Nala has fit effortlessly into our family and makes us laugh when she chases squirrels, army crawls across the floor, and does barrel roles when we play fetch. It's hard to believe she was ever given up, she's just so darn sweet!”
At PAWS, we find forever homes for the animals in our care. This means making sure adopters and their new family members are the perfect fit by matching energy levels, motivations, and lifestyles. Volunteer feedback, staff evaluations, and the Meet Your Match program all help us to learn more about a cat or dog that has come to PAWS, and provides valuable information for adopters looking to add a new furry friend to their family.
When Nala came to PAWS, we learned that even though she appears a bit shy, she loves to run. Nala was going to need an extra-special family that would help her build her confidence as well as give her plenty of exercise - a daily walk around the block wasn’t going to cut it for this high-energy lady. Then, Nala met Rachel. Rachel loves to run too! After getting to know each other, it was clear that Nala and Rachel are a perfect pair.
Now, Nala gets all the care and exercise she needs – she even gets to go on long hikes on the weekend! Rachel sent us some updates on how Nala is fitting in at home:
“I just wanted to thank PAWS for all you do and the second chances you give all the animals. Nala has brought so much energy and joy into my family and we can't imagine being without her. The attached picture is from a hike we took her on to Wallace Falls. She sure does love her walks and runs!”
