Andie Needs A Home

Andie is a sweet senior lady that has been waiting over a year for her home. She is looking for a special adopter. Andie loves to snuggle on the couch, get belly rubs, give kisses and follow her humans around. She is so eager to receive attention and affection from her loved ones that sometimes she can be pushy.

When Paws for Life rescued Andie from the shelter it was obvious she had been neglected and possibly abused for most her life. With time and patience Andie has come a very long way. She is super loving but needs time to gain trust, especially with men. Andie will need a home with a patient owner/family that will give her time to adjust and feel comfortable setting boundaries for her. Andie is good with dogs, cats and with older kids who are respectful and understanding of animals. She loves to play with her foster mom’s eight-year-old niece and ten-year-old nephew.

Andie is very food motivated, which is great for training, but she sometimes accidentally nips your fingers when she thinks you have treats. It is best to feed her with an open palm. We know that the perfect person is out there looking for a special companion like this sweetie.

Joelle – A last minute rescue

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/IMG_20170118_182215-300×300.jpg” width=”300″ height=”300″ text=”Joelle – Before & After” plain=”1″]This afternoon we got a call of desperation to our foster families by our wonderful team member Megan, who works closely with the Franklin County Animal Shelter. With minutes to spare before euthanasia, Megan had managed to find a volunteer to drive out and transport this scared, yet beautiful, dog to another volunteer’s home for fostering.

Everyday I am blown away by the amazing team of volunteers we have here at Paws For Life! They inspire me to be a better person — to do more and to ask for less.

These sorts of things happen almost daily at Paws For Life, and seeing the difference we made for Joelle in a few hours time is extraordinary! See for yourself, these pictures were taken before and after being rescued by our group.

If you are interested in getting involved apply to be a volunteer, and do whatever you can help us, no matter what your skills or time allows you’d be surprised what effect you can have on these animal’s lives!
