Featured Dog

Gwen

Adult, medium brown/chocolate, middle-age female Vizsla mix & Pit Bull Mix

  • Good with male dogs

  • Prefers a home without cats or female dogs

Meet Gwen, "Classic Family Dog" Loyal, trusting, and obedient to her people. Gwen is our longest sheltered dog. In the 11 months she has been with PAWS, Gwen has not given up hope tht someone will choose her. (Gwen lost her home about a year ago due to a larger female moving in who threatened her.

Gwen

Gwen has impeccable indoor manners (fully housed trained and does not chew).  She's happy to snuggle with humans on the couch and, with appropriate introductions, does well with other male dogs.  She

For the month of July, Gwen was in foster in a rural setting but developed grass allergies or kept getting into wild parsnip. She had to go back to the shelter and is treating her with prednisone. This change confuses Gwen, who very much enjoyed being in a home even if only a foster home.

In the 11 months that she has been with PAWS & More she has never given up hope that someone would choose her.


Adopted dogs come with a free class with Professional Dog Trainer and Canine Good Citizen Evaluator

Featured Cat

Snow White

Short Hair-white & Tabby - Brown Mix
Size: Small
Age: Adult
Sex:  Female

Snow White 

I'm a savvy cat who knows the score. I'm pretty unflappable, too. I don't mind entertaining myself, but a human companion at the other end of the couch and a nice scratch behind the ears always make my day.

Our cats are spayed/ neutered, vaccinated against feline distemper / feline parvo,  microchipped and have their rabies shot.

Driving Directions:
We are located at 1004 1/2 W. Madison Street (which is also Highway 92) in Washington, Iowa 52353. The shelter is behind the Casey's General Store.

Directions to our shelter from Cedar Rapids and points North:
Take 380 south. It will turn into 218 S. after crossing over I-80.
Continue until you see Hwy. 1 exit south to Kalona. When you get to Kalona, there will be a 4-way stop sign. Continue straight through the stop sign towards Washington. You will come to the Junction of Hwys. 1 and 92 where you will continue straight through. Once into town, the highway will turn into four lanes. Watch for a Pizza Hut on your left in about a block. After Pizza Hut, you'll see a True Value, and next is a Casey's. We are a gray building BEHIND the Casey's. So, if you've passed Casey's, you've gone too far.

If coming from the south on Hwy. 1, you will turn turn right onto the four-lane highway. Watch for a Pizza Hut on your left in about a block. After Pizza Hut, you'll see a True Value, and next is a Casey's. We are a gray building BEHIND the Casey's. So, if you've passed Casey's, you've gone too far.

If coming from the east on Hwy. 92, remain on 92 all the way through town to the west side. Watch for a Casey's on your right. We are a gray building BEHIND the Casey's.
