This week's pet of the week is Zeus.  Zeus is an amazing dog.
He is an six year old Anatolian Shepherd weighing over 90 pounds.  Zeus is a big sweetheart, but needs a special home.  As a senior, he does have some arthritis and hip dysplasia so he needs to live in a one story home.  He is perfectly content as an indoor couch potato.  Zeus would love a calm, quiet home and buddy to watch TV with.  While Zeus likes children- younger, very active children startle and frighten him so a home with calmer, older children is preferred.

Zeus qualifies for our senior to senior program meaning that his adoption fee would be waived for a qualifying senior of 55 years or older with an approved adoption application.

It’s that time again!!!! Join us on Saturday, November 21st for the 2015 Townsquare Media Mutt Strut presented by Palmer Farm & Ranch, benefiting Concho Valley PAWS.

This year’s event is for walkers and runners of every age and fitness type. There is a 1 mile, 2 mile or 3 mile track. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 closest estimated times for each track.

Bring your pets to walk or run, too! All leashed and vaccinated pets are welcome!

Register online at muttstrut.conchovalleypaws.org for just $10 per walker/runner.

We encourage you to get your friends involved, too. Form a team or solicit monetary pledges as sponsorship for your participation. The participant to raise the most money will win a flat screen television.

At the end of the race, there will be a pet fair and pet pageant. Judges will be looking for the most beautiful pet, the best wag, longest ears and the biggest and smallest pets! Best overall pet based on popular vote will win $100.00

The goal for this year’s event is to raise $20,000 to go towards our veterinary expenses. Last year PAWS rescued over 630 cats and dogs and spent over $60,000 on veterinary expenses. You can make this event a success. If you can’t participate, you can help by sharing with all your friends.
