Dee and I had the great pleasure working with Cumulus Radio at tonight's opening of the Destin Seafood Festival. We had a great team working the Beer booth, and found our that one of the Cumulus team has a PAWS alumni. Seager...now known as Bowden. Look at that face. Thank you Cumulus, Lisa,Sammy and all the crew for a great night. ... See MoreSee Less

My name is Ella. I am a 7 year old, Spayed Female, Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix. I have been in the shelter since April 2, 2016. That is over 180 days.
The volunteers and staff say I am a great girl and wonder why no one ever asks to see me when they come to look for a dog. Sure I might be 7, but I still have lots of energy and love! I absolutely LOVE to catch tennis balls and play fetch with you. I love to go for rides in the car, I love all the attention I get from adults and kids. Loud noises don't bother me and I listen well. I know the sit, fetch and drop it commands. I can also catch treats in the air!
My wish is to spend the rest of my life being loved by a family and catching tennis balls.
Please share my story so I can find my forever home.

This young man, Jayek made a request that for his birthday that his friends bring donations of food for the shelter instead of presents for him. He is with his brother, Brice bringing all the food to the shelter. His father happens to be one of the firefighters that PAWS honored for Courage and Valor. The apple does not fall far from the tree. What an outstanding young man and family. EVERY PAW AT PAWS THANKS YOU. ... See MoreSee Less
