PAWS Pet of the Week: July 25 – 31, 2016

FORT KENT, Maine – PAWS Animal Welfare Shelter presents Milo as PAWS Pet of the Week in hopes that this little cat will find his forever home.

Meet Milo. He is a black short hair, under a year old. He is very energetic and playfu,l but also in need of his daily dose of cuddle. Milo will give someone joy, love and many years of great companionship. PAWS volunteers kid that everyone knows wearing black is very slimming — that is, a black cat, purring on your shoulder.

Milo is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and cleared of parasites. To see him, visit Valley Cat Haven during open hours Saturday, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., or call Jean at 543-7348 for an appointment.

PAWS is a nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned cats in the St. John Valley. To see Milo or the other cats in need of a home, call to make an appointment, or visit during walk-in hours on Saturdays.

Organization members believe most pets can be socialized and prefer not to release them back outdoors, as winters are harsh in Northern Maine. PAWS operates as a no-kill shelter. Their mission is to get owners to spay and/or neuter their animals to help cut down on the population and give all animals a better chance at a quality life.

PAWS Animal Welfare, Inc. spays, neuters and vaccinates mature animals before they are placed out for adoption.
