What was it about these roly-poly Dachshunds that caught the attention of the second grade students in Miss Jennie Warmouth's class?  The fact that they are best buddies!  The students know that sometimes it can be difficult to find homes for a bonded pair of animals, so they wrote this adoption profile to help them find the perfect forever family together.

And it worked!  The perfect family came along and fell in love with these two sweet pups.  Thanks to the creativity of the Spruce Elementary students, Badger and Little Bit now have a forever home and family of their own. Read the profile that helped them get adopted below!

Giants are usually pretty scary, but the second grade students in Miss Jennie Warmouth's class at Spruce Elementary certainly aren't afraid of our gentle giant Louie!  These creative and compassionate students recognized that all Louie wants is a loving home and family of his own.  Plus, just like the students, Louie loves playtime with his friends!

The students came up with a handful of wonderful things about Louie that would make him the perfect companion—including his impeccable manners and how he's learning new tricks with clicker training at PAWS. Read his new adoption profile below, and take a look at this adorable video of Louie shaking hands with a PAWS staff member!




He’s an eight-year-old gentleman.

Louie had a “ruff” start but he still has the courage to be your best friend.  If you are willing to respect him, you might be the right person for Louie! 

If you like Huskies – he’s your DAWG! Are you a responsible and compassionate citizen? Louie is responsible and respectful too.  It would be the perfect match!

Louie is just a loving, happy dog who wants to make his human companion happy as well.

Will you be that person?

Eddie is a big love who gets around really well despite having three legs. The students came up with a handful of wonderful things that come in three's, and Eddie is one of them! Read his new adoption profile below, then come to PAWS for a visit!



Do you love triangles? How about three wishes? What about three scoops of ice cream? (chocolate + vanilla + strawberry!) Or three golden eggs? If you love the number three, then Eddie is the one for you!

Over at PAWS, the volunteers lovingly call Eddie a tripod.  And in Room 15 we call him a TRY-ING-pod. Why? Because he just keeps on trying! He is a HERO! He shows the world that life can still be great! Eddie has three legs but he can still run like the wind. No challenge is too great for ED-TASTIC! Would you like a cuddling adventure dog? Then Eddie is your boy. He’s an amazing wonder. He LOVES to play and is always looking for an adventure. Eddie is an exercising athlete! Eddie is HANDSOME, HEALTHY and HAPPY!

The second graders at Spruce Elementary know their geography.  And they also know a star when they see one!  Miss Jennie Warmouth's students spotted Frenchy and could tell that she is a one-of-a-kind feline.  If the children think she's better than french toast and french fries combined, she must be one special cat!

The students created this adorable profile for Frenchy to tell everyone what a catch she is.  Read what they have to say about this international kitty who is full of personality. Then come to PAWS in Lynnwood to meet Frenchy and fall in love!



Oooh laa laa! Where in the world is the most beautiful art? Where in the world is the most tasty toast?  FRANCE of course! Since this little kitty is called Frenchy, she will remind you of all the great things about France!  Frenchy is sweeter than french toast, french fries and pastries combined! 

Everyone knows that people fall in love in France and all of the people are going to stop and fall in love with Frenchy!  She is just so beautiful.

She is quite a favorite at PAWS!  She’s got a BIG personality and the confidence to let others know who is boss! She is cute like a teddy bear and soft like a blanket. If you dream of a French cat, then Frenchy is the one for you!

This kitty would climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower just to say "Bonjour” to you.  Come fall in love with Frenchy today!


Miss Jennie Warmouth's second graders immediately fell in love with Eddie, the plucky three-legged dog who won them over with his sweetness and charm.  They love how Eddie doesn't let anything slow him down—even with three legs, he can keep up on the playground.  Just like the children, Eddie loves playtime, being active, and brand new toys!

The students created this adorable profile for Eddie to let prospective adopters know what a wonderful companion he would be.  Read what they have to say about this goofy guy, and then come to PAWS in Lynnwood to meet Eddie and see for yourself how fun and energetic he really is!


Eddie is a three-legged charmer!  This is what you should call him: cute, cute, cute! The cute goes on forever and beyond, and he can still run like the wind!


Eddie still has three legs and can run run run! This dog acts like every day is a gift. Every day is like his birthday! He’s a totally fun and active boy. His coat is ultra dark and his heart is brighter than the sun! His eyes sparkle like a shining star.


Are you a hiker? A runner? An active human? Then Eddie is the one for you!




Looking for ways to make your Valentine's Day a little sweeter?  Give some love not only to your special someone, but to a homeless or shelter animal as well!  If you're not sure how to get started, we've put together a short list of ways that you can be a sweetheart for animals in your community:


  1. Support your shelter. Shelters provide a variety of rewarding opportunities to help animals in your community.  Share the love by volunteering your time, fostering a sick or newborn animal, making a donation, and more!
  2. Live Humanely. Show your love for animals by considering their welfare in the every day choices you make.
  3. Spread the word.  Write a letter to the editor of a local paper, share posts from PAWS' blog to encourage others to speak up, or become a fan of PAWS on Facebook and spread the word about important animal issues.
  4. Spend some quality time. It's the day of love, so shower your pet with some!  Take your pup to the dog park and throw around the ball, or curl up with your cat to watch a movie.  Spreading the love starts at home! 

These are just a few ways to show animals some love this Valentine's Day, but there are many more ways that you can help animals every day. Visit paws.org to find out how! 

Thank you for being a champion for animals!


Like all things that come in small packages, Heath the Beagle has a big heart.  That's why the second graders in Miss Jennie Warmouth's class at Spruce Elementary chose to write him an adoption profile!  They found that they had much in common with Heath—both the students and this friendly pup love playing with toys, hanging out with friends, and eating treats!  And just like the students, Heath is always on his best behavior.

The students hope that their profile for Heath will find him a forever home and family. If you're looking for love and companionship, look no further than Heath! 


Meet Heath the Beagle

Heath is a LOVEBUG! He is adorable, playful and loving. What else can you ask for? Cuteness?

“Now what shall we play…Hmmmm…I know! Let’s go outside!!! Oh! Oh! Let’s play fetch!

Woof! Woof!"


This week, Miss Jennie Warmouth's second grade class decided to write an adoption profile for not one special PAWS animal, but for two!  They chose bonded pair Belle and her friend Daphne, two kitty kindred spirits who would love to be adopted into a new home together. 

The students created this adorable profile for Belle and Daphne to encourage prospective adopters to take home these two best friends.  They even made a fun quiz, complete with an audio clip of the answers!  If you're looking for double the love, come meet Belle and Daphne at PAWS adoption partner Sunset Hill Vet in Ballard! 

Belle-DaphneDo you have TWO hands? Then perhaps you should have TWO cats to pet!

Belle and Daphne always want to be together! They love each other like sisters. True love should not be separated. These two best friends should be together always! These two are like MAGNETS! They just stick together!

Belle is a chatty catty, She loves attention. Then there is Daphne. Daphne is the quieter of the two. She is a sweet shy girl who follows her sister around! She is warm and loving, too!
