A year and a half is a long time to wait for something. Especially when you're a homeless animal, and that something you're waiting for is a loving, forever home and a family of your own.

Samantha and adopter JeremyFor two-year-old Samantha, a beautiful cat with a silky black coat and an irresistible "chirp"-like purr, the path to adoption seemed long and, at times, improbable.

In May 2012, Samantha was brought to a local Humane Society shelter as a stray. But the shelter was in the throes of "baby season" and filled to capacity with young mothers and litters of kittens. They had no room for her.

Desperate to find somewhere for Samantha to go, they turned to PAWS for help. Through our Placement Partner Program, we were able to provide a safe haven for Samantha, with a warm place to sleep, plenty of food to eat, and lots of love from PAWS staff and volunteers.

But months later, Samantha was still at PAWS. Adopters came and went, but Samantha remained, waiting for just the right person to take her home. Finally, nearly a year and a half after Samantha first arrived at PAWS, that person—Jeremy Buechler—finally did.

Today, Samantha is happy in her new home, just in time for the holidays.

Adopt a pet from PAWS!
