We adopted Vinny (black and white and shot with a shotgun) last Sep. 15. He has done wonderfully, is so happy and has changed my life.

Thank you so much for forwarding all of this information. Basil (we have renamed him Gus/"Gussie") has brought so much joy into our home already, and we love him so much. Sweet, goofy, playful and laidback - he fits into our family so well that it seems we were destined to be together. He has settled in wonderfully, Thank you for all you do for these adorable animals. Each one of you inspires me!


Dear CPaws, We are so thankful every day that Emma came into our lives. She is an awesome dog. Thank you for rescuing her and keeping her safe and healthy until we could find her! :-)

We are not sure he has seen small children before - he was mystified to see someone "his size" but enjoyed playing fetch with our 3 year old granddaughter, and she with him! I thank you for all the work you and CarolinaPaws did to assure that the dog would be appropriate for us. We think it is a good fit!

She's the biggest doll baby and adjusting to us so easily! We just love her already! Thank you so much for all your great work that you do everyday for these sweet animals and especially for getting us Molly!

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you. Thank you for caring for the animals in our community. I know it's hard work. I know you're not thanked often enough for all of the little things you do. So thank you! You are making a difference. Keep it up!


We just wanted to write and provide a quick update on our fur baby Kip (Previously Hendrix with CPAWS). He just graduated from dog training program. He is such a sweet boy. I attached a photo of our family the day Kip graduated from training and then our boys enjoying a Pupachino after a long walk. Thanks for rescuing our guy!


Bailey (formerly Ella) would like to thank you for all your hard work rescuing her. She is thriving in her new forever home. She loves playing with her canine brothers, especially the one that is soft and cuddly like a teddy bear! She loves hanging out in the yard, soaking up the sun, chasing squirrels, watching the birds, playing fetch and chasing Ace and Knox around. She is really fast and graceful! Her coat is coming in nicely. She looks healthier and healthier every day. She loves walks with her brothers and, believe it or not, she is the leader of the pack on walks! She has really blossomed! She is loved and adored by all her human and canine family and she's so grateful to you for this second chance at life! It's gonna be an amazing one!



Molly a sweet and very mild-mannered Lab/Boxer mix came into our rescue in 2012. She was rescued on the day she was due to be euthanized at a high kill shelter. Her ear was permanently disfigured when her original owner decided to try to crop it themselves, without the expertise of a veterinarian. This forever body scar did not deter her easygoing, loving disposition. She was adopted by a loving family with kids and other dogs to run and play with. Molly finally has the home she deserves.


Nina a Boxer/Lab mix was found homeless, living with her previous owners in a tent. She spent many nights cold and hungry but she remained ever loyal to her owners. They surrendered her to our rescue in 2013, realizing they could not give her the care she deserved. Nina found her forever home and was adopted by a wonderful family with children that adores her. She is the queen of the house and every one that meets her quickly falls in love with this amazing girl. Nina will never have to go cold and hungry again.
