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:
Charlie's foster mom says: "He is an absolute sweetheart. He is a little shy at first, but quickly warms up to anyone who will pet him. He is very smart and seems to learn quickly. He loves other dogs and being with his family. He would be a wonderful addition to any family!"
