O'Fallon based All Paws Rescue volunteers need help finding permanent homes for dogs and cats.
Pets are available for adoption through All Paws Rescue, an O'Fallon based volunteer group working to save homeless dogs and cats. All pets are kept in foster homes, where they receive the care they need to help prepare them for a permanent home.
All Paws is supported solely by private donations and fundraisers. If you're interested in adopting an animal, you can browse their website or attend one of their weekend adoption events at area PetSmart stores. Last year they adopted out close to 300 pets.
This week's featured pet:
Ziggy is a one year old American Pit Bull Terrier, born on Aug. 9, 2009. His foster mom says he is a curious, outgoing and very intelligent pet. Ziggy is crate trained and house trained. He was turned in to a shelter when he was four months old. When the shelter found out Ziggy was deaf, they contacted All Paws Rescue.
Ziggy has been in a foster home since then and he has learned a lot. His foster family said he knows sign language for many basic obedience commands, including sit, down, stay and come. Ziggy has a lot of energy and needs regular walks or other exercise to keep him busy. He does well with other dogs and with cats. He likes to put everything in his mouth, so would not be a good fit with young children. He would make a great running or walking partner, or a companion for someone interested in dog sports like agility or rally.
