When my daughter & I decided our 2 year old rescue dog Lola needed a friend, we searched local adoption shelters and visited the PAWS website regularly until the day we spotted Creme Brulee. Since there was a planned adoption day at a local Petco, we went to meet Creme and the other pets. I was immediately struck by the friendly, helpful volunteers and their obvious love of the animals they were so hoping to place in loving homes. We arranged for a home visit to see if Creme would mix well with Lola. First meeting didn't exactly go well, but our volunteers were undeterred. Second visit - better, but not great. Third visit - better, making progress. Their knowledge, determination, and perseverance was limitless, and on the fourth visit, Creme stayed with us. We now have 2 wonderful dogs who have meshed beautifully, but without the hard work and concern from the PAWS volunteers, the story could have ended sadly. They never gave up, they never complained, they KNEW they could make this happen. Creme (now renamed "Roux') is possibly the sweetest dog I've ever owned and in a matter of 3 months, she and Lola are best buddies. I can't say enough about this wonderful collection of animal lovers and have recommended them over and over. Their kind compassion is something I will never, ever forget and they are so deserving of every accolade they receive!
